She lectures for the whole class amd gets off track and starts talking about things that are irrelevant to the homework,vocab,or essay we are doing.

Had her twice. As long as you get the work done, it's not a hard class. She can be tough to deal with sometimes, but other than that, she's an okay teacher. Her discussions are really interesting.

She gets off topic alot, but when in discussion of a specific topic, she is pretty clear. Her class was easy. Alot of work, but easy.

Work is okay, not that much projects. Writing essays isn't much; can't be sure what's approved or not. off-topic at times.

She was always very encouraging to me. Isn't the best teacher though. Kinda lost us sometimes, quizzes were pretty easy. Doesn't prepare you much for the exam so be prepared to study on your own.

She's not the worst, but she's not the greatest either. She does look as if she was going to have a nervous breakdown everyday! She scares me sometimes!

Very unorganized, lost my work several times. She always talks about how life is going to be in "University" and what "University" expects. She needs to grasp that she teaches high school.

A very helpful and supportive teacher, she always encouraged me to do well, and often praised my work. Always very positive, and an all around good teacher.

She was the worst English teacher i ever had! It seemed as if she was having a nervous breakdown during our class. Get your act together, and then try to teach.
