I had Nelson for both Lang and Newspaper and I LOVE her!! She treats her students like the young adults we are, gives us assignments that actually make us think, and is just a fantastic teacher. Don't get me wrong, the lang class can be challenging. She generally assigns us the most books to read out of the other lang teachers, but the test are fairly simple. Just do the homework and you'll be good. In Newspaper she lets us work on our own and only intervenes when needed. I HIGHLY recommend her.

From the AP Lang Perspective: This is the easiest Lang teacher you will get. Hands down. She's not very clear most of the time, but heck, I got a 5 on the exam, so you can. Just put in the work and read the books even though you don't have to to pass the class, if you want to pass the exam.

Nelson's a great teacher. I don't know how she handles the idiots in 3rd period this year, but her classes are the best! Just make sure you're honest and do your work.

She is an amazing teacher! Her experience with the Washington Post shows that she is more than qualified to teach. I loved her and you are extremely lucky if get her as a teacher.

The woman is wonderful. She adores her "cherubs" and would do anything for them. One of the best teachers I've ever had...wish she would go back to teaching AP Lang!

She so immature for someone her age and she didn't even learn to control herself. If she gets even a little bit stressed or angry she'll flip out. She's very condescending and pretentious. Sucks.

Best and most useful class I have ever taken (including 4 years of college and 1 year of grad school) was APJ. Whether you like her or not, appreciate the educational experience.
