Ms. Filley is SO smart--it's only November and I've already learned so much! I would definitely recommend going to meet with her when you're uncertain about an assignment-she's helpful and I think she appreciates it when people do that.

Filley was hands down the best English teacher I've ever had. Although she was quite difficult, her assignments seriously do help with your writing in the long run.

My honest opinion of Mrs. Filley: I will start with the bad. She does not give out good grades very easily and I am not thrilled with what I am getting. It is not outrageous, but I would not mink an A instead of an A- or B , once in a while. That is really the only bad thing about Mrs. Filley. On to some good things. First off, you can tell she is cool. Mrs. Filley is nice, understanding, and does not mind laughing sometimes. She is exactly what you want in an English teacher. Love her!

Filey is a very formulaic English teacher; you won't do anything wild & crazy in her class. The works she chooses are reasonable and she's really helpful if you go to see her for actual help. A bit moody, but never impolite. In her good moods, though, she's lots of fun. She's great in in-class discussions and has a wonderful way of letting students do the thinking themselves without influencing their ideas. All in all, a pretty regular teacher. You'll have a good time in her class.

sometimes it seems like she prefers quantity over quality. but definately meet with her at least once every two weeks because i think she gives really dedicated students better grades.

amazing teacher. at the beginning of the year i didnt like her at all because her class wass hard. i wont lie. it was hard and frustrating. but eventually it got better and i really loved the discussions, even though the grading was still intense, because she was good at directing ideas. i liked the essays a lot (by the end) but when i tried to apply the stuff i learned this year my teacher hated it. so its back to square 1. but i think its just this years teach. perfect the model = ur fine.

She is impossible, and no matter how hard I try, I can't get a good grade. Also, she doesn't really teach she just holds class disscussions and gives us writing assignments.

filley knows what she's talking about when it comes to essay writing. she's an extremely tough grader though. her creative writing class is fun at the beginning of the year, but becomes very boring.

Filley should go back to grad school. She has a lot to learn. My parents say she is poor and cannot understand rich people. I like welfare.
