Mrs. O-W was cool but she graded really hard and assigned essays within 3 days that they would be due. don't slack off and try to write 5-page long essays, not 5-paragraph essays. (I lost my valedictorian because of that class.) :(

I had Mrs. OW back in 2010-2011 during my senior year of high school and ended Rank 3 in her class. She was probably the best English teacher I have ever had. She is hard, and I really had to work for my A as a senior, but I loved her class!

I had Mrs. OW for my freshman year. Although I DREADED her class at the beginning of the year, I grew to appreciate it. She is VERY good teacher. I am not a sophomore and I still remember a lot of the things she taught us! She also has a very bubbly personality and is reasonable. You'll learn a lot in her class! :)

At first, one would find her a pleasant and jolly woman but sorry, she's not. She assigns homework and essay at the blink of an eye with little time to work on. I really loved her projects like plays but she is mean to everybody especially if you talk in class.

I had her for English 1A during my freshman year. Although many found it hard to maintain that A, it was very possible as long as you had written every essay, had finished every project, and had taken every test thoroughly and to the best of your ability. I thoroughly enjoyed her class. She's been one of my favorite English teachers and always will be. One word of advice: DON'T PROCRASTINATE!!!

I was expecting really searious english in high school, but she's really upbeat and nice. If you enjoy a REALLY energetic teacher, you will like her. The vibe was just a bit too middle school for me.

Best English teacher I've ever had; beware that English 2A teachers will have a hard time comparing to her once you get past the class. She makes class interesting and she's very charismatic.

Her somewhat pleasent demeanor hides her hypocritical theories on college preparation strategies. Favors quantity over quality. Mindless note taking is key.
