any english teacher who fails to spell the word "embarrass" correctly after two attempts should clearly not be an english teacher.

Im lerning soooooo much things in her class. She is a exelent teacher. I wishes that I coud have her as a English teacher for all my years in highschool. I dont understand why kids dont like her like I like her becuz she is so nice and funny and smart and that's why I like her but other kids dont. She has all my symphonies becuz she is not liked. She can even intirpret you're dreams!!!

worst teacher I've had. Her homework assignment questions have absolutely no depth, and frankly, I don't think she should be a teacher. I mean, half of her assignments are "draw a picture and explain it," and her arguments are hardly thought-provoking. She is the equivalent of an epic fail. Just saying.

Ruined my year. I have a lot of feelings that would probably be blocked so I thought that would suffice.

If you get this teacher, get out. i dont care if u have to cry, beg or plead, u need to get out if u have the slightest care about your skill in English. Even if your parents are not ok with dropping an honors class for a normal, this class is easier than sheltered English and your chances of getting an A are very slim. All she does is assign BS homework on the spot and we do not learn anything.I fell asleep every day in that class. EVERY SINGLE DAY.her monotone voice does not help pay attention

the things she says doesn't make sense, and when students say something really intelligent in response to the text, she pretends to understand it but then she repeats/rephrases it, it seems like she isn't very intellectual herself. she has a really quiet voice that's hard to listen to, and the class is boring (easy to sleep). and she's oblivious most of the time. i don't feel like i'm learning much with her.

Mrs. Brown taught in a creative way, so we learned in depth and had fun while doing it. She really cared about all of us as individuals.

I don't know what you guys are talking about. She was my favorite teacher last year. She taught us not only about English, but also about life.

She teaches at the 6th grade level and should not be teaching a high school honors class.
