Still not sure if she ever graduated college. Maybe it's just cause I checked out halfway through the year but I swear to whatever god you want me to that she didn't tell us about 75% of the assignments. Alright as a person, just a bad/10 teacher.

Grades incredibly harshly. Gives no breaks to students. Has a condescending tone and is quite arrogant over her knowledge. In reality, she knows very little and give awful analyis. Very bad teacher. Hard to pay attention to. Takes everything too seriously.

She never seems prepared for class and is not clear when giving directions at all. Many times she will deduct points for things she never told us to do. However, she is really understnading that we are seniors and does not always check the homework assigned and will give us the answers when we do turn it in for the people who didn't do it. This might also be annoying though cause she assigns a lot of busy work which we don't always turn in. On the upside she really crew about her students.

Not organized, not clear, assigns a ton of busy work that she *almost* never checks. Often she will analyze a book, then not explain her reasons. A lot of it seems speculative and unsubstantiated.

She shouldn't be teaching anymore. Smart, but doesn't ever know what's going on or what she wants. Never explains assignments, gives so much busy work. Nice person, but terrible teacher.

Mrs. Dillon will make you work hard but it is all for a reason. You really will learn in her class and will take away a ton. She's a really helpful person and is a great person to just talk to.

Ms. Dillon is deffinately a demanding teacher. She expects a lot from her students, but is incredibly nice and really loved all of her students and her subject. Not an Easy class, but worth the work.

Yes, she's hard, but she knows so much! If youget her, take advantage of everything she knows. She loves Dubliners and loves to hear student's opinions. Definitely worth the year of intense AP work.

Mrs. Dillon is funny, if she likes you. She is extremely unorganized though, and there are lots of communication problems about when assignments are due. If you do the work, she'll appreaciate you.
