Eiserman is hands down the best english teacher you will ever have. I was a good writer - she made me so much better. Yes its hard and you have to put out lots of essay but it pays off. If u keep failing stop being arrogent and ask her for help!

Mrs. Eiserman is a great teacher and person!! Although she does grade a little harsh, she knows how to write and how to help her students learn how to write. Her class was entertaining (since she previously was a theater teacher and enjoys acting).

I showed her a rough draft of an essay. She showed me everything wrong with it, and then I went home and fixed it.She still gave me a 75 and I dont' know why. If she had any more problems, she should have told me. I'm so pissed off.

She is an conformist who does not support opinions that are "out of the box". If you are a smart student that can think for yourself, you will hate her class because she will hate on you. She only teaches you how to think like her, any other opinions will be put aside and ignored. She also does not give any reasons for why she ignores some answers. She will not take time to think about what you wrote. If it was not what she would have wrote, then it would be considered "wrong".

She is a very good teacher, and explains things well. The only downside, is that she is a tough grader.

She is so unorganized and takes forever to grade anything! Her class is hard because she grades things so randomly. Her due dates are ridiculous but she will sometimes extend upon individual requests aka ask her after class and explain/make something up. Get ready to get C's on everything you turn it!

She is super hard. I am usally a strait A student, and on the first day of school she said a C is a good grade... not in my book! She is a good techer if you are welling to work. She expects a lot from her students and won't settle. My writing has improved but only one or two kids in my class got A's on papers! I enjoyed her enthusim and she keeps the class fun!

Ms. Eiserman is the best teacher I've ever had. As my freshman english teacher she really helped me adjust to high school and set me up for success in other English courses. Her class is difficult, but you really learn a lot, not just about literature but how to conduct yourself as a person. Had she not been my teacher I would probably be a different person today. And she's great to talk to about anything!

Just remember to ask her if you have a question. Once you do that, everything falls into place. Also: analyze, analyze, analyze.

It's a tough class, but if you work hard, you'll be fine. Plus, since she's always willing to help people, you just need to know when you're struggling, so you can ask for help.

mrs eiserman is a dedicated teacher and all, but the grading is... ridiculous. she is really harsh with that and it is near impossible to get a good grade on any papers. she is really nice and passionate about her job which is great, but when you take her class, be prepared to not be able to do anything after school except her work.

I personally dislike her. The majority of my year has been essays and reading books. Her grading is harsh. Completing her minimum requirements will net you a D or C-. Spending an extra hour on work C or B-. No life = A+

famous phrases~"here's the deal","3~2~1" and she gives really funny looks when she talks~and when shes giving a lecture, she moves her arms so much. She is also very repetitive and gives so many essays~ and she grades really tough. She is really helpful, she came in at 7:30 one morning when I needed help this past quarter on one of her essays. She is a good teacher and does have a good sense of humor about things(sometimes) Combined block class is always so much fun, overall, I'm happy I have her this year.

Yea, the essays are impossible. And she threatens us with shoes or duct tape. But she's hillarious. The deep voice is always worth it. We all no her injections and her implants. A boring class, but English always is.
