Miss Arney is a great teacher! There are too many rumors about her that make incoming students uneasy, but most of them were proven false. She has a great, humorous teaching style, a manageable amount of work, and she does care about her students :)

Arney will whip you into shape, but she is one of the best teachers I have ever had. She is strict but what you learn will stay with you for a long time. I know she seems mean but she is really the sweetest woman when you show that you care and are a good student. She is so understanding and will always help you

I can easily say that she is the most dedicated teacher I have ever had. I just finished my class with her and I don't think I have ever appreciated a course, English or otherwise, more than this year. If you are a soon-to-be 9th grader looking for opinions on Miss Arney, ignore the critics because,while the class can be very difficult, I have never encountered a teacher who was more invested in her class and one that takes a direct interest in her student's progress. Honestly, she's fantastic.

I love this woman, though her class is hard and she does make you do the work, i have learned so much in my experiences with her. She is a truly amazing teacher and has caused such a difference in my life. She is so helpful and would never turn a student away. Please take her class if you have the ability to, it made a huge difference in my life. Truly, she made me want to study English for the rest of my life.
