I had her for Lit and Phil, awesome class! (Never had to write an essay for this class) Also had her for AP Lang , she is willing to really help you improve your writing skills. She is easy to talk to and is sort of a grandma figure. Take her class!!

Had her for 10th English H. One of the best English teachers I've ever had. I liked her a LOT better than Ms.Galang. Her tests and quizzes are a lot more reasonable (both time wise and content wise) Very caring and gives great reviews/explanations!

I had her for literature philosophy. She lectures somewhat slowly and repeats herself from time to time, which makes her easy to understand, but boring. It can be hard to stay awake in her class, and there are always 1-2 people sleeping, but she almost never calls anyone out for sleeping (I don't know if she is being nice or just doesn't notice). Little homework, just reading. Easy B, slightly harder A, because her quizzes and tests can be tricky.

Ms.Innis is pretty nice , she's willing to help if you need it. She explains the concepts pretty well and she repeats herself several times. That way you really can't forget it. The only bad thing is that you might be in a room with 25 other sleepy kids. Most students get pretty sleepy by the end of 19,20. Homework is based on completion. She gives out pop quizs but they are easy as long as you read the stuff she assigns. MC questions can be tricky though, but the essay questions are really easy

Kind of hard for an A, but she' nice. I think she speaks in a monotonous voice which contributes to students sleeping in her class, but she doesn't really care. The stuffy room and talking about philosophy doesn't exactly help you stay awake either.

Very easy B if you do homework and do alright on the test. If you participate often that can help get you an A (participation is 5% of y

Great teacher. Really nice, but you have to do your work and try really hard fir an A. Very reasonable about grading, but you gotta show up to those classes 'cause participation counts! Overall, what I would call a teacher who knows what she's doing.

Innis is a tough grader and she is not one to argue over whether it could be right when she thinks it is wrong. Just speak up in class to get good participation and do all your work then you will achieve a B, if you actually try hard then you will get an A. She is a good teacher. She tries to help

Pretty straightfoward teacher concerning workload.. you just have to know the material and answer questions.. she's also really nice and DOES have a sense of humor. Last day of semester she talked about random things that teachers do and it was pretty funny. Easy B, you don't have to work too hard,

Ms. Innis is the best. She's sweet and funny and is actually aware of what goes on around school and her students. If you really talk to her, you won't regret it. The work load wasn't too bad, and you go over everything in class. Her tests are a little tricky, especially the True or False.

10th grade English, F'05. She had us memorize and perform a monologue from Othello. (Loved that.) I liked the books we read, but I didn't like the way she taught them. Watch out for the T/F questions -- they're tricky.

a pretty nice teacher, pretty easy. she gives a LOT of partial credit for short answer questions, but her multiple choice & true false questions are kind of ridiculous. you don't learn a lot in her class, i found myself slacking off because she was so easy.

She was honestly one of the nicest teachers I had. Most people in my class either had a B+/A-. Her lectures aren't necessarily exiting, but they weren't boring either. We didnt have that many essys and only had 8-10 HW assignments each quarter. Her tests are usually not easy nor hard.

Ms. Innis is one of the NICEST teachers I've EVER had. =] She's pretty clear about what you need to do and everything, so you don't get confused in her class, that often at least. =] Her tests aren't that hard, just study and keep up with the class. Her grading's primarily just work, participation helps with citizenship, I'm guessing. Good class if you like a laid back teacher, bad class if you can't pay attention during in class discussions.

she is an easy teacher but i didn't like her true or false test questions. overall working in groups was fun mostly because you dont' really talk about the book but about other class non-affliated things. she is definitly not the best english teacher but in a way she is reasonable.

yep, she accused me of cheating on a hw assignment (told me that I copied off the overhead when we went over it in class). She only refunded my points because she was in a hurry to go and didn't want to argue her point, which actually had no evidence to it anyway...

I had Innis for 10th grade eng 1 and I really liked her. Her tests aren't that hard either. Homework isn't very much and isn't very hard. After you read the books, like Othello, she showed us a video of it. I wanted her for Expo but she was already filled up when I got there.

She is a very good teacher. She definitely knows what she wants to do with her class and how to teach it to us. Her instructions are clear and most definitely do everything she can to help us succeed. I am taking her Expos class and it is one of my most favorite classes. Homework is pretty easy, but it does help you write a little better if you put the effort into it. I reccomend her and I would take her again if I could.

Woah, i was so worried about her when i picked her since she's a new teacher, but she's not so bad. She tends to kind of grade you according to her opionion on the matter (expos), but you'll still get a good grade if you're a good writier. She also shows films and lets you read what you want sometimes, it's pretty cool. One of the better english teachers at Lowell. It's too bad we stole her from thurgood XD

Compared to the other 4 English teachers I've had at Lowell, her class is less exciting than watching paint dry. I'm not saying to avoid her in the arena, but there are much more fun English classes. Her homework assignments can get annoying after a while too.
