She's gonna bite your head off if you don't do the MLA format correctly. Been there done that. Wasn't fun
She gives a lot of essays so be prepared. She really doesn't like teaching freshmen, but don't let that get you down if you get her. Focus and do your best, and be honest with her if your struggling.
How she loves the Korean fobs... She's very strict but if your class behaves it can be fun to enter her classroom.
I had her as a junior and all I really knew about her was that freshman feared getting her. My class was extremely easy and she loved us. Open up and be thoughtful and that's all any teacher can ask.
she's a wonderful and easy teacher, seriously extremely easy. teaches you how to write like a PRO!!
a little strict in the beginning but gets nicer, loves you if your class is small, taught me how to write an essay really well! dont drop the class, stay in it it'll be worth it
i love ms ballan she was the best english enriched teacher!
Absolutely marvelous teacher. Great year but too much rushing especially towards the end as we were to read approx. 80 pages in one-two days?
difficult and unclear at times but she teaches you how to write pretty well
She can't help us herself, so she tells us to go to the CSI room. Also, she won't hesitate in failing an essay completely just for being slightly brief.
go to the csi room thts all she says because she can't help us herself...
Ms. Ballan is nice most of the time, but very unclear in her explanations and is not one to offer a helping hand when you don't understand.
