She's a native new-yorker and as such, is a little.. abrasive. She's very harsh and strict, but not just randomly mean for no reason. She forces everyone to participate and loves to make everyone do stupid projects. She grades extremely hard. EXTREMELY HARD. That being said, she is a good teacher and looks out for the well-being of her students. She is 100% a grammar _ _ _ _ , but this will help your writing skills and your SAT score a ton. Very so-so teacher with as many cons as pros.
she's cool she just is set in her own opinions. ALWAYS do the assigned readings b/c she quizzes you, don't try to cheat b/c she'll catch you, and know the vocab words well for tests.
She's alright but she takes forever to grade essays and she grades them REALLY hard
She is very funny, but a really hard grader, she does pick on people to tho. Don't ever be absent from her class, getting make-up work is a living horror!
I had her my soph & junior years in the late 90's; I hated her. She went out of her way to signal me out due to my public speaking phobia at the time. Not very respectful to many.
Not one person that I talk to likes Mrs. Kempner. She picks on people a lot, and definatly has fovorites in class. Do NOT take if you are sensitive.
talks a lot about the holocaust, but she's soo funny! i luv her
Better 2nd semester, cool lady, just tell her you're Jewish.
Kind of strict, but super-nice (if you can get on her good side)
