She is a nice and helpful teacher but gives us way too much work. She gave the class four days to type and record a 525-875 word essay. She gave us three projects at one time. We already had another project due, so that made 4 projects due for one class at one time. She does not seem to be aware that students are humans and can only handle so much work.

Whoever has had this teacher knows that she teaches nothing. You do mindless vocabulary and are tested on the most obscure things on reading checks. She also grades harshly, and gives out endless projects,and picks favorites and is rude. If you show interest in her class you should be ok just don’t complain to her about every little detail. In the long run you’ll thank her but your GPA will not. Mind you this is coming from an all honors student

She prepares you very well (vocabulary-wise) for the SAT, but grades very harshly. She's nice, she just grades really harshly

Absolutely rude. No respects to students. Just plain bitter. Hasn't taught a thing. Just assigns homework and vocabulary words. I don't think SHE HERSELF has taught us anything and respectfully, she's not a very good writer either!!

Think of Diane Geurin as a teacher who's main goal was to beat out individual creativity and joy to implement her own systems. She grades like a hawk, you can get points taken off for having poor lighting in a presentation. Her HW/project requirements are unbelievably ridiculous, there are so many requirements that individual creativity is almost non-exsistant. You have the feeling that if you add a touch of individuality, she will scold you and act passive aggressive for the rest of the year.

Makes fun of students for asking about things she doesn't explain. Projects are based on ridiculous rubrics with requirements that are 100% opinion based. Forces class to memorize over 400 words with definitions for a 6 hour final test. Bad person!

I have gotten nothing useful out of her class. She picks favorites and her workload is too much. When you hear the word rubric you feel like dying inside. Her rubrics are also hella confusing. She doesn't actually teach us.

She doesn't teach a thing. She gives out impossible projects and she does nothing but grade them. She can be understanding if you have to talk about something and she is very smart, but impossible to deal with as a teacher, if you can call her a teacher.

She's a dreadful teacher. Her assignments won't teach you anything, and they'll consume all of your time. She doesn't care about her students. I seriously think that she is intentionally rude.

Incompetent teacher. Emphasized arbitrary, time consuming assignments. Didn't do any prep work for the AP Lit exam; students didn't even know what was supposed to be on the test.

I took College Writing with her my senior year, and it was anything but what the course was supposed to be. Looking back on it, it was a useless class. She also picks favorites.
