Mrs. Craven was my favorite teacher. She seemed strict in the beginning but she ended up being extremely fair and kind to all the students. I learned about literary techniques that are helping me in English 2 years later! I wish she was still my English teacher!!!!

Great teacher who cares about her students well-being academically. She may be strict, she may seem mean, but in the end, her tests will be pieces of cake if you study! Keep you're chin up and get out those notes! - had her last year.

She is a very strict and difficult teacher. I had her for sixie year and she can be funny at times, but at the beginning of the year trust me, you WILL be scared. The average on her tests are Ds, she doesn't explain anything and I learned nothing from her. However, she is O.K.

Whenever the name "Ms. Craven" popped up in any conversation, many would associate her with the word strict and fearsome. This may be the case, however, when it came to the policies, homework, and your dedication to learning. Yes, she is strict, I was once too scared to even take a step into her classroom. However, as the year started passing by, she didn't seem so scary. It was mostly because she takes her student's education very seriously and if you stay friendly she'll reciprocate that back.

She was one of my favorite teachers. In the beginning I didn't really like her I thought she was very strict but as time went on she grew on me. She has helped me so much in my classes I have now. She does give a lot of work sometimes but the work is fun and she really cares about her students. SHE IS AMAZING. You just need to pay attention and try and you will love her. Savor it while it lasts.

I had Mrs. Craven last year, and she's the best reading teacher. She can be very strict and, like some people said, scary. But if you put in the effort and get on her good side, she is a great teacher. Her all time favorite books are To Kill A Mockingbird and Alice in Wonderland. My favorite memory was when she took an entire class just to go in depth with the metaphors and satire underneath the surface of Alice in Wonderland, and she got so excited. She's a great teacher and I recommend her.

Mrs. Craven is my favorite teacher at BLS. She comes off as extremely strict, especially at the beginning of the year, but as long as you stay on her good side she is very kind and helpful. She often makes jokes and schedules fun activities to try and make class more fun. A lot of students think she is too hard on them, but as long as you do your homework the tests and quizzes are not extremely hard. She goes into great detail on the books we read and is always ready to help when needed.

Ms. Craven is very strict and sometimes even is scary, but if you really think about it she is one of the better teachers in the 7th grade. She teaches you many useful literary terms that will be constantly used again in the years attending Boston Latin School. She follows the rules strictly, though. So don't ask to go to the bathroom 10 minutes after class starts or before class ends. And ALWAYS wait until you're dismissed by her, she'll hold you for as long as it takes.

Mrs. Craven has been the best teacher I have had at BLS so far. She teaches you so many literary techniques that you don't learn until much higher grades. The homework takes a while to do, but as long as you do it, the exams are really not too bad. In the beginning of the year I wasn't sure about her, but by the end she was by far my favorite teacher. I wish I could have her again because she was always fair, understanding and helpful.

Ms.Craven is a pretty tough teacher, but at the end of the school year she's a lot better. She's mostly strict, but she can laugh at times.

I am in her class this year and from other students who had her before have different opinions. Some say she gets nicer towards the year, some say she's the worst. I have a student teacher who is teaching us now and I wish I could replace ms. craven with her. the pop quizzes are too specific. If she's in a good mood during your class you are very lucky and if she isn't then I wish you luck.

Had her in my first year at BLS. Her class was the hardest because she was very passive aggressive and the classroom environment was very stiff and uncomfortable. But after a while, you learn to love her. She isn't as mean as you think she is.

She's one of those teachers that you immediately don't like, but during the school year, she warms up to you and you start liking her class a bit. She has a short temper and obviously plays favorites. Ms. Craven knows a lot about books that you read in class, but most of the time all you do in class is silent packet work. Her quizzes are pretty hard because they have questions about books, but the questions are incredibly specific. All in all, if you want to pass, just study a lot.

Wish I had her again. Pretty strict when your in her class but you'll end up loving her. I learned a lot from her even though those reading checks aren't fun. She's very caring and just a great person overall. She's intimidating at first but you can tell she is well organized and is great at what she does
