I felt nauseous going into her class because she was so strict and intimidating. She taught me how to write. I'm in med school now, and I get regular complements on my writing because of what she taught me.

Ms. Yamamoto is the best teacher that can whip a lazy student into shape, and the tiger-mother side of her is loved by many and appreciated by more. Though I have never had her as a teacher, I have ha

Oh man, where do I start? Ms. Yamamoto is very intimidating and strict. But I have to admit that I excelled in English after taking her class. Looking back, I'm glad I had her.

Any teacher could be popular if they gave As and/or required no work. Yamamoto gets students ready for college. Best English teacher in the TUHSD. Her grades reflected achievement only. Thanks AY!

she is a very hard teacher but she is one of the only teachers that actually prepared me for college. My writing is so much stronger because of her. It was rough but I would say it was worth it.

I do agree that she is mean, you cannot even get more time on your homework, not even once if you really need it. That's cold and heartless. I'm lucky I'm passing, I am just worried about next quarter

Ms. Y has made me the best writer ever! Sure she's tough, but I exceeded on AIMs and I think she's the reason. Keep the pressure on, Ms. Y! You rock!!!

She is tough, as a teacher, no doubt about it. However, she will whip you into shape, for the AIMS test. Not to mention, you will become a much stronger writer. Thanks Yams!

As long as you go in and show that you care about what you're doing you will ultimately gain a lot out of the class and find that you do quite well.
