May 24, 2012 Very funny. Full of sardonic wit and opinionated remarks. Perhaps the best English teacher at this school. Her grading is occasionally vague, and her multiple choice questions are often ambiguous, but her teaching style apropos of essay-writing is top-notch. Definitely not your average teacher.

Sep 12, 2011 Favorite Teacher EVER! she is so chill if you get on her good side, makes the funniest comments about everything! seriously, if you get her you are so lucky. Also, she taught me how to write a really good essay even with her really chill teaching style. The only problem is you get a lot of subs and she assignments may become a little confusing but Flag Rating

Mar 17, 2011 Unlike the other English teachers I've had over the years, Mainwaring has actually taught me how to write a decent essay. She challenges you to be creative and teaches you how to construct a good essay. She is also one of the funniest, craziest teachers I've had and she is very outspoken. The only bad thing is that she can give out way too much hom Flag Rating

Mar 16, 2011 "why was 6 afraid of 7? cause 7s black" she actually said this in class
but shes so insane she becomes funny if you just stop thinking of her as a teacher and more of a tv show.
if you have her, heres a tip: get on her good side early and you dont need to work for the rest of the semester because shes too lazy to read your stuff and she just assum

Nov 03, 2010 I had Ms. Mainwaring for 10th grade regular English, and she was incredible. Yes, it can be difficult in class, but that's probably because you're not paying attention. She teaches at a level she thinks is challenging for you, but not too hard. She's so funny, and since I'm good friends with her son, she treats me as a daughter she never had. Flag Rating

Sep 20, 2010 Not very organized and sometimes assignments were confusing but I must say, she is one of the funniest teachers I have ever had. She's a great lady with awesome stories and despite the complaints listed above, the class was enjoyable and I wish I had her this year :) Flag Rating

Oct 16, 2006 You have to be kidding me - She is not cool, and definetely not all right. She cares only about sitting up front, and doing as little work as possible. When was the last time you got an essay back that actually appeared to be read, and had some corrections - a disgrace to teaching! Flag Rating
