I find it extremely hard to articulate the negative feelings I have towards Mrs. Dempsey in a mere 500 characters. First of all, she harasses her students daily, for example when a student would answer a question wrong she'd yell "ARE YOU DYSLEXIC?!" Also on her board she'd make a hate list of students' names and while doing this she'd say "(name of student) is finally on my hate list!" She is also a terrible teacher, I learned nothing from her and the only work I did was senseless busywork.

didn't like her at all when I was in her class but now I miss having her! despite her methods that can get a little crazy, she got all the information into my head! She loves grammar and will it teach you until you are reciting verbs in your sleep!

Dempsey is hands down the worst teacher I have ever met. She can make you feel like a disappointment and a failure because you forgot your grammar book. Instead of teaching us what we need to know, she will dwell on insignificant things and make you feel awful. She plays favorites and lets them get away with ****. She gossips like a little girl and is just a horrible "teacher" overall. Some teachers just need to retire.

I like her, her reading tests on anything are daunting. Sometimes I'm scared of her.

thinks she is a tough teacher, but really is not. she's more likely to favor you if you make jokes and treat her as your friend. do your work and you'll pass
