Perfect teacher if there ever was one. Knows her subject matter- inside out. Uncanny intuition about students and their thoughts.

Amazing person and teacher! Will help anyone in need! She taught me to write, to think, to be me. She works tirelessly, does tons of extra help, and cares about each and every one of us. I love her!

Has lost sight of teaching and concentrates on one and only one student. Ya know the one who shadows her all day long and inappropriately worships her. weird.

She is the most amazing woman I have ever met. She gave my self esteem such a boost, I feel like I can do anything I put my mind to. Without her help, it'd be in the gutter.

Mrs. Leighton is a very good teacher. I mean, its not fair to critisize a person for giving detention if you don't even have them as a teacher.

Ms. Leigton is the worst teacher amongst the deparment because of her unnecssary work. Maybe she should go back to student teaching and learn more.

Ms. Leighton is a bad teacher, she needs to give her students second chances, and learn to loosen up especially at the end of the year.
