I love Ms. PK, she does so much for the music department, it seems to take up so much of her life and she does it because she cares about us. You're an entitled, ungrateful little cockroach (whoever said she doesn't deserve respect) because she's incredibly sweet and gives everyone way more chances than they deserve. And she's really passionate about her subject, which surprisingly enough is hard to find these days. My only complaint is too many religious songs :/ other than that she's 10/10
There is a comment about how Ms.P thinks we owe her a lot of respect but we don't bc she's just a singing teacher...thats absurd. Seriously, she is so much more than that. She is a director, teacher, pianist, singer, and motivation for me to strive to be my best. I often find myself smiling in vocal because i see how passionate she is about music and its so wonderful. I'm in one of her classes and I'm slow as hell. She is so patient and takes the time to sit down with me. Shes the best
I love her!!! She's so nice and caring! You could be having a terrible day and she will go out of her way to ask if youre okay! She also knows about what shes teaching!
nice lady, and she knows a lot about music. for anyone interested in singing, she can teach you a lot.
shes a good teacher but she definitley picks favorites. shes still nice to people who arent her favorites but just cold/distant. i feel like shes rude sometimes but anyways her class is alright.
She is an amazing Chorus, Vocal, CQ, Theory, and Color guard instructor person. (AND DIRECTOR!) She's really great at what she does, and she's really modest about it. I admit to posting the below comment, but my opinion has changed; She is just the kind of person that has to "warm up" to you, and get to know you. She does try to aknowledge everyone, but she just more aware of some peoples talent and passion than others. She DOES tend to like the people who try to impress her, but "sucking up" does NOT work!
Ms. Pilanen is ne of my favoirte teachers. I wouldn't say she "picks favorites", but she has a tendency to be really good to the people who are good to her, and kind of shafts other people. She's an excellent person, and an excellent teacher, but I feel like she just doesn't like certain people, and treats them really coldly when she doesn't. I am one of the students that tries really hard for her to like me, but if you're not one of the whiny, rude theatre kids..it takes A LOT more effort.
ms.p was the best teacher/friend i have ever had i love ms.P!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and you always knew when she was there in the mornign becasue her keys jingle all the way down the hall =]
Ms. Pilanin is a very effective teacher. I was tought by her in my high school days!

The best! Easy to talk to about anything. Never had anyone like her. Had her for chorus, vocal, and colorguard...never a dull moment. Thanks a bunch Ms. P!
She definitely picks favorites, but having been one of them, I had a good time. She was one of the friendliest and most pleasant teachers I had at BHS.
Ms. P made my high school experience better than I could have imagined.
One of the most influential persons I have ever met. Great teacher and a great friend. Thank you for everything Ms.P!
Ms P doesnt pick favs, but if you disrespect her 1ce, she remember it forever. ONE OF THE BEST MUSIC TEACHERS I HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME. Lots of skill.
She was my chorus teacher 1998-2002, she made all the difference in how we sounded, great teacher and knows what she is doing.

the most caring teacher i've ever had. great guard instructor too. just to see her students try their best means the world to her and i appreciate that.
She is nice and a good teacher. Our chorus is good becasue of her.
Definitely one of my favorite teachers. She is very obvious in picking favorites, but I was lucky enough to be one of them. I recommend her anyway.
Ms P is so awesome! She is easy, nice, and fun! One of the coolest teachs in the school!
One of the nicest people you'll ever want to meet...but no one else ever gets a chance to do anything unless you're a favorite.

Ms. P is a really cool teacher and chorus is really fun class!

Worst music teacher I ever had, music is suppose to be fun.
Ms P. is awsome. Sometime moody but still awsome. Every teacher picz fav's!!
if she read some of the stuff that is written about her, she'd cry. thats mean
Ms. P is nice, and i like her because i am one of her favorites
she is nice but picks favs when other work their butts off for her
Great teacher and Guard insdtructor, but definitely picks favorites
Finds qualities in students, others overlook. Definite asset to the Arts
Caters to her obviously favorite students, and ignores all the others...
Honestly, she caters to whiny students. And she's too emotional.
