I had Ms. Head for English 9 and AP Lit and I am proud to say that she was a positive force at a critical period of my life; I credit her in part with the person I am today. She made me work hard for the grades that I got in her classes, and her classroom was a safe haven in one of the most tumultuous periods of my teenage years. If you do not have the fortune of attending her class, you can still learn plenty by spending time in her classroom during breaks; her care and wit is infectious.

I think she's a really good teacher. She is a little hard grade wise, but extra credit can bring up your grade a lot. She knows what she's teaching and is really cool B).

Gets very rude when stressed out - which was most of this year. Otherwise, I've heard from other years that she's nice. Was an ok teacher; manyof us were scared to ask questions though.

Shes pretty much amazing. The only good teacher in this school. She may be strict, but in a good way, and she loves every student. I had her for English9 and I simply can't wait for AP Lit. I love her

AP lit is an easy class - you hardly do anything in it. But she did teach us to read independently & critically, definitely a plus. She can get pretty annoyed though, can't control her temper.

The grading system for the class was very unfair and unpredictable...but the class itself was not extremely difficult. Very few assignments, so every point counts.

"AP" = Hard. You all need to realize this. Ms. Head was one of the best teachers I've ever had--she knows more about Lit than I ever will and she made it fun. She has PASSION.
