Mrs Bartges absolutely had a positive impact on my writing, reading, grammar, and helped significantly in SAT prep. However, she could be unrelentingly without empathy at times when it was needed the most. I'm sure she was protecting herself from the inevitable amount of crap and excuses a teacher gets, but at times it destroyed me. Sometimes, people really are having a hard time in their life and unforgivingly pressing makes it worse.
An extremely dull teacher who assigns absurd and inhumane amounts of work.
One of the last real teachers. She holds us accountable.
Great teacher, pushes you and makes you work. She is complained about by those who refuse to do the work and expect little to no punishment.
