S. Grace Avila led two literature classes I selected in 1978 and 1979. The books she chose and the formidable ideas and themes they represented have stayed with me throughout the decades. She taught us how to understand great writing and to develop fluent, correctly constructed essays, advancing our literacy. She has a wicked sense of humor, and she remains the greatest teacher I have ever had.

She was the best teacher ever. She cared about her students and I will never forget her when she was my teacher in the late 90s.

One of the best teachers I have ever had. She really makes sure you learn how to write A papers. I felt prepared for college because of Sister Grace Avila.

Honestly now, this is in retrospect. I graduated in 2000 and I had a hard time with her then. Now I really miss her and the way she was with her class. She rocked AP. Im a teacher now cuz of her.

Sr. Grace was one of the best teachers I've had anywhere, When I first got into TMLA I heard all the rumors about her but they are all untrue. If you have her enjoy the opportunity

Yea, we know she's not cool, but she's an awesome teacher and, if you've ever had a conversation with her, she's not that bad. If you like caustic sarcasm..A+

Sarcastic, extremely unfriendly, and crosses the boundary between student and teacher when she calls student's cell phones. Unprofessional.
