Mrs. Mienko McAllister is friendly and chatty, which is nice, but this year she did not show much ambition to teach. We would have short series' of days when we would do work, but most of the time we had free time or would be studying fictional literature which did not prepare us for the AP Lang exam. In fact, she did not teach us one of the three AP writing styles until about a month before the exam. She is opinionated about essays, and she will not give clear direction for improvement.

Don't expect to walk into class and know what's going on that day. Learn to go with the flow, appreciate the easy days when she doesn't feel like teaching, and work hard when the time comes. I'll give this advice- you know those endless short passages you have to read? Learn to write like that. Absorb the literary effects she emphasizes and apply them. A's come super easy once you do that. I loved her as a teacher and her relaxed style, but she's not for everyone.

She acts like she wants to get know everyone in the beginning of the year but turns out she's one of those teachers who makes it obvious who her favorites are. She favors 'the popular', like others have said.

One of the only teachers I've had that can relate to the students as well as she can. She makes class enjoyable, and has improved my writing immensely!

Don't you find it odd that most of the people rating the English teachers, don't use the right words or spellings of words.

She's easy but she favors the slackers and popular kids wayy too much. She's very moody and not a good teacher, she just doesn't teach.
