I had Ms. Kohl for AP English my senior year, as well as Newspaper my junior and senior years. She is quirky and fun, but incredibly challenging. I'm now working on a masters degree and I fully credit the fabulous education that I received from her and Cathy Smith for my success writing papers during my undergrad. I was so much better prepared than my college peers. If given the opportunity to take a class from her, the obvious answer is YES!
She's a wonderful teacher, and great at her job. I'm very glad I've gotten the opportunity to be in her class. She's helped me a lot at improving my journalistic skills since I've started attending Olathe South. I look forward to having her class again next year!
I had Ms. Kohl in the early 1980s. She's one of my favorites. Aside from the fact that she demands competence from her students, and requires them to work, she's an engaged teacher. She knows as much about her students lives outside of class as inside, because she pays attention. Ms. Kohl has a brilliantly sarcastic sense of humor that made me laugh almost every day. When I graduated, she told me what career she thought I would succeed in and why. No other teacher did that.
Compared to your junior English class, this class is easy. However, it is in no ways a blow off class. Participate, be funny (but not annoying), and she will love you. Dont be afraid to ask for help. She can be intimidating, but she IS very helpful.
She is by far the best teacher I have ever had. Because of her I want to be a teacher. She is challenging but it is clear that she cares about her students and their success. She is brilliant.
Most intelligent person I have ever met. She has high expectations, but she is always willing to help you reach them. Super funny and a very passionate teacher. She makes things interesting.
She is one of the smartest, funniest, most intriguing educators I've ever had. She is one of the three reasons for my success in college writing.
An amazing educational experience- if you can handle it!
I must say that Ms. Kohl is probably the most intelligent woman I have ever met! I loved her class and, although hard, it will serve me extremely well incollege
Amazing lady. I've loved having her for as long as I have. I've learned so much from her. She's challenging, but I think that's a very good thing.
At first I wasn't sure about her, but now I'm pretty sure she's a good newspaper teacher. She is a very wise lady. I really like her unique sense of humor.
I think that Ms. Kohl is one of the best teachers I have ever had, and I have had some really good teachers in my life. Her dry humor is hilarous.
Ms. Kohl is awesome(in newspaper). She makes you work but allows you to have fun at the same time. Our paper looks incredible compared to most others.
Intimidating, scary, dreadful...but thats just what I think of English... as for Ms. Kohl she's challenging but also rewarding and definitely worthwhile...
Demanding but provides lots of material to help us understand.
Amazingly smart - sometimes demands a LOT but it's worth it.
she's a nice person but very ineffective . her classes are a waste.
I have really enjoyed her class. It's difficult, but not overwhelming.
