Honestly she's the laziest teacher at tech. She'll make up stuff to do in class if she feels lazy or doesn't want to teach. For example, for two weeks instead of doing work we played games pretending we were cars walking around the classroom. Furthermore, she gives oral tests as she is too lazy to create real ones. The grading system is terrible and most people get either 40s or 60s. The only way to do really well in her class is to give up your lunch period and be her assistant.

she's very nice and helpful. She teaches you a lot and you will leave her class knowing a lot more than you did going in, guaranteed. her oral tests are a hit or miss, but just make sure to read the books she assigns. Gives you the grade you deserve.

Shes kind of rude but is overall a good teacher. I only had her for three months but in those three months i learned a lot of new grammar and writing skills. Very strict on lateness but is fairly lenient on other things. Gives short homework assignments about every week but are usually easy. I enjoyed her class more than any other english i have taken, so be grateful if you have her.

I've only had her for 3 months. For the 3 months, I learned A LOT. Her work may be a little tough but it is reasonable and do-able(always typed). She is very knowledgeable in grammar and writing. With just a few lessons, I feel like I've improved my writing. She is very nice and approachable. It's really a shame that she was pregnant and left for the ENTIRE year. But I believe you will leave her class with a lot on grammar and writing tips.

She was pregnant and left during October or November. She was a great teacher for those 2-3 months I had with her. The substitute teacher was terrible. She looks terrible too. She teaches terrible. She taught in 75 schools and now i know why she's only just a substitute teacher but she was nice though.

She is an amazing teacher and really helps the students. If there is ever a problem she is always available to help. She has really creative projects and is really enthusiastic about the material she teaches. She also goes over how to write college essays and really prepares you for college writing.

When I first joined her class, I was really intimidated by her. She is really strict at first but warms up to her students throughout the year. She is by far my famous English Teacher that had helped me in so many ways. She is one of the few teachers that has gained my respect. You will definitely love her class. There were just so many interesting class discussions that the whole class can relate to. Just make sure you participate a lot and DON'T be LATE!

She was alright as a person but as a teacher she gave us the most meaningless work. One marking period she didn't even teach. We just sat down and analyzed poems.

She missed my friends test grade, which resulted in her average being dropped 10 points. She gave us meaningless projects when we could've reviewed the assessements and improved our weaknesses. Every single person hates her. Although one might think she's a great teacher, once one sees her true colors, you'll want the year to be over faster.
