I I felt like I was the only sad one when she left, but honestly she wasn't that bad. If you're worried about the AP test, it's so easy anyway. You could pass w/o even taking the class.

To "Diane" (verb): To not know what you're teaching, and to never admit it, but to pretend you do and repeat everything. Dianing is a skill experienced and learned in this class.

I have a theory her TAs grade everything and she has no idea what she's doing. She's only teaching AP cuz Abrahams left (noo) and she has tenure. Everyone will fail the AP test.

Wow, worst english teacher ever. She marks us off for not filling every inch of our paper. We haven't written an essay all year and yet we write one for the Final.

I tried asking her to give me pointers on how to improve my essay, her response, "um... this was a really good essay, there was nothing you could really improve on" my score: 26/30

granted the AP English class is new, but Mrs. Shires either doesn't know what she's teaching or is just unable to help her student's learn to improve their writing skills

Terrible. Takes off points if you dont fill every single line of the page. Quality, not quantity. She should know that. Gives us useless assignments too.
