I couldn't stand Mrs. Closs when I had her as a teacher. She assigned so much busywork and I was the only one of my friends who had a B in Honors English because they had easier teachers. However, I went into the IB program and realized that not only had she prepared me for actually working in an English class, but for all of the material we would learn. I had a much better grasp on literary elements and understanding literature than my classmates.

Kind of a confusing teacher. Get on her good side and become her favorite and do your work and you will be fine. She gives a lot of work but it's easy.

She's a super kind lady (if she decides to notice and like you) but very very unorganized. Has students do all her grading. Can not work a computer so if one of her students enters your grade wrong you're screwed. Make sure you're her favorite and life will be easy. Tons of hw which she rarely grades but when she does she takes it all up and makes it worth a billion points. Have to read a lot. Mostly the bible? Come to Jesus meetings on the reg lol. Good person not good teacher. Needs husband.

She means well but sometimes she's downright mean for no reason to students. She hugs people against their will and slaps them. She will call you out in front of the entire class for anything. Anything. Her homework isn't really difficult, there's just so much of it. I wish we were able to get our quizzes back faster before tests, because we got them back really late and it's difficult to study if you don't know what you struggle with. She clearly cares about her students, at least. Stressful.

This lady is GOD AWFUL!! She assigns a ridiculous amount of homework per night. She has no regard for after school actives/sports, or other work we would have for other classes. Try not to get this teacher for English 2.

Ms. Closs was very unclear on every assignment and she always have tons of homework for a Sophomores Honors English class. I received a B on a research paper rough draft and got an F for the final which is really ridiculous. She doesn't explain at al

Probably the best English teacher at Broughton. After you finish her class, you have learned about World Literature, as opposed to most English courses.

Very hard, but one of the best teachers I've ever had. Quickly weeds out those who don't want to succeed.

Hard, but I enjoyed the class. You just have to get used to the workload, and then her class is allright.

She does give big projects, but she is a very nice teacher. You will be on her good side if you don't talk back and if you do your homework once in a while.

We never got any work back to study with, and most of the cirriculum was related to Africa. I didn't learn much in this class.
