I loved Ms.Sapozhnikov because she was a really nice teacher and she made Freshmen English easy and fun. Although there was a student teacher teaching for 3/4ths the year, I still enjoyed Ms.Sapozhnikov's class. Ms.Sapozhnikov was pretty clear when explaining text in a book and her tests were really easy. Ms.Sapozhnikov was chill, funny, and totally cool. She announced her pregnancy during one of the last few days of school so shoutout to Ms.Sapozhnikov and her baby! :)

She uses her class to stroke her ego (that I can only imagine is highly damaged by the fact that she is a public high school english teacher). Additionally, she acts as though her opinion on age-old famous literature is the only one that is accurate. This can get very annoying when you compare her theories to those of people with adequate intelligence and find that they are rudimentary at best.

She's a very arbitrary grader. I'll tell you right now, anyone that writes something along the lines of "if you work hard you'll get a pretty good grade" is probably one of the students she favors. She grades essays based on much they conform to her style of writing and not the english department's rubric.

Harsh grader and has obvious favorites. Though you might get "bad vibes" from her (user post below), she has a great personality. She's a decent teacher and you will definitely be prepared for any major tests to come.

I really love english but I just don't like her as a person so that kind of ruins it for me. She's an alright teacher but she just gives me really bad vibes. I don't think she hates me but something about her makes me feel really uncomfortable

She needs to grade according the the department of english and not based on her bias views. As far as I know, getting a 100 for any of her work will be considered MASTERY on the assignment. RARE

I wouldn't say she taught us to write better essays. She didn't help me and just expected us to do essays without propers formats or techniques. Shes a nice teacher, you can talk whenever you want and she won't care. But she can destroy your grade with her essay grading. Kind of boring at times with her class discussions, but she is willing to help you if your struggling in her class. For soph honors do your essays and do not joke around with them, do a Good job or you will suffer the consequences....

She explains things to us, we have interesting discussions, and I've learned to write better essays and speak up in class more. If you try, you'll definitely do well :D And she's oh-so-chic.
