I think it really depends what you have her for. I knew many people who had her for regular English or SUPA and they hated her guts. I had her for SWS and while she currently does not teach in SWS, I had very good experiences with her. She is kind and teaches well. She is a little strict and from what I hear in certain classes assigns too much work, I think if you can get her for the right subject, it will be ok.
Andrea is a great teacher, if you do your work on time and come to class prepared/well bahved. She knows what she's doing.
Although Mrs. Kaufman is a hard teacher, her assignments made me totally prepared for college like nothing else. In retrospect, I appreciate everything!
