At first I hated Cortnie, but she's growing on me. I am now in 2H had Mrs. Sarna last year. I thought that Mrs. Sarna was better at making learning enjoyable, but she also gave more homework and they're not really that different besides that. Cortnie is kind of annoying with her answering simple questions by telling you to stay after and stuff like that. She is also very opinionated and democratic. She's not that hard of a grader, about the same as Sarna. And she's a nice person!
She always announces like giant units exams like the day before the actual test, which requires you to study for like 2 hours minimum for it cause some stuff on these exams are stuff that she didn't tell us to study from in the past when we learned it like 50 vocab words and a lot more. Very Harsh Grader, Exams are super hard.
Mrs. Rosenhaft was an alright teacher. Sometimes I forgot that she was my teacher or that I had her class because she was out SO MUCH. It is a tough class to get through. I would not recommend her as a teacher.
Not terrinle, just overqualified to be a high school English teacher and tries to push down political views on her students as she's the teacher of the Young Democrats club. Her 2H consisted of frequent in-class essays and Socratic seminars (Did she forget that this wasn't her public speaking class?). Tough essay grader, but gave thorough feedback that helped students grow, although comments were condensening most of the times. Gave quizzes as "grade boosters" that most students failed.
Had her for two years . . . we had a sub so frequently, we thought of the sub as our second English teacher. Didn't grow in the two years at all. Pretty easy class, though (1R and 2H). If you agree with her, she'll like you. But don't ever go against her opinions.
I loved Ms. Rosenhaft. She can come off a bit strong but if you get to know her you end up loving her. I had her as a freshman and my writing got so much better! It isn't that hard to get an A as long as you are not rude.
Best teacher I've ever had.
I am a 2H student and am always excited to enter class. Ms. Rosenhaft has been my best English teacher yet. She is always enthusiastic about our topics and extremely passionate about literature.
I'm not a fan but I suppose she's decent. I heard the other 2h teacher is a lot better.
she's alright. it depends on her mood for the day
Good teacher that cares about you learning. Keeps you intrigued and makes sure you work.
Good teacher but very strict and very tough class.
Yeah. Def enthusiastic, but at least she keeps you awake. Her classes are not boring. she cares about you learning.
well...she's...enthusiastic, something i'm not so thrilled about for first period. she's nice, and i guess she's a good teacher
