I had an 89.4 in her class during the second trimester of my 8th grade year (this was my first ever B in middle school) and I also completed 8 points worth of extra credit. I waited for her to input my points but she never did. I talked to her many times and she kept saying how she does n add extra credit to raise your grade one grade level. I MEAN WHAT IS THE POINT OF DOING EXTRA CREDIT THEN? I am still mad that my record was broken. (She also grades very harshly and always thinks she is right)

Overall Mrs. Whalen is a good teacher. She thinks English is a perfect language which is funny when you know other languages. English has more "exceptions to a rule" than most other languages. She has a "know-it-all" complex but does her job well.

She always seems to think she is correct. She loses your assignments every once in a while; often enough that everyone in the class will experience this at least once. She has obvious favorites, a major one being the principal's daughter.

She grades hard, has favorites, and thinks she is right about everything. She corrects her own mistakes and grades me down for it. Ex: she corrects my paper the first time and gives me an 80 because I made a mistake in sentence #4 and fixes it for me. I use her advice and change sentence #4 the way she suggested except she DOESN'T LIKE HER CORRECTION ON MY PAPER ANYMORE AND DECIDES TO MARK ME DOWN A SECOND TIME. This is not only me many of my friends agree

Oh miss Whalen...when i first got into her class she did not like me because i did not participate in class enough, so do it! but now, i get A's in her classes so just stay on her good side and have good manners. (she likes good manners like, "thank you" and stuff like that) Also, she always lets you out to lunch 5 minutes late. She explains the homework at 12:30 (lunch time) and then decides to read us a poem that was assigned for us to do as homework. But besides that, she's a good teacher
