I realize she's an AP/Honors teacher, but that did not give her the right to put us down the way she did daily. An AP teacher is supposed to help you prepare for college by helping you think more critically and prepare for the work you'll most likely receive. An AP teacher is NOT supposed to make you mimic their opinions.
Oh...whine whine whine. She's smart.
Learn from her. What do you want, a lollypop class? She's an HONORS and AP teacher. Sheesh. She is doing you a favor by calling it the way it is.
At first she seemed like a genuinely good teacher. But we soon realized that to get a good grade you have to mimic her opinions.And she will rip you apart in front of class if you disagree. She would put student writing on the overhead and mock it with the student sitting right there!! Mean, inappropriate & unneccesary. We didnt learn to develop our own ideas. Instead we just copied the opinions we thought she had. How dumb is that
she is an amazing teacher! I dont know why everyone is saying that she is not!
Ms. Diemer has unfair grading. She grades off of what she likes or disliked and not based off of a rubric. In almost all cases the first grade you get on a paper will be your grade for the year.
Hard, but fair. She works; you work. She puts in 100%; she wants you to put in 100%. If you have Diemer, you'll be prepared for college. Went to Brown. Diemer! You're the BEST!!!!
Best writing teacher--EVER. Just graduated from Oberlin. You won't find her equal.
Teaches only HER style of writing and is far more trouble than she's worth. All you learn in Diemer's class is how to appease DIEMER.
Miss Diemer is a good, but very hard teacher. She likes a specific style of writing and thinks about the symbolism of everything.
I had her in fall of '99. I think I got one A in her class; a short narrative on the Grapes of Wrath. I'm pretty sure she thought that I plagiarize,considering that I got C- on every other assignments
Dear Hilltoppers, I am in college now. Believe me, you will love her once you see what you can do compared to your peers. She is the most awesome writing teacher. FINALLY, a teacher who pushed me.
I disagree with my classmates who think she is unfair or a harsh grader. We are HONORS students!!!! Do you want her to just be another "nice" teacer-- or do you want her to do her job and teach?!
Very great teacher but a really HARSH grader. Taught me lots about writing but I still need to work on it to get something higher than a B. Thanks Ms.Diemer!
Her humour is amazing, hard grader, but teaches SO well.
Wah! She's not "unclear." She just makes you think. Energetic, intelligent, and dedicated. Those are my words for her.
I learned a lot from her, but she has a couple of flaws. She chooses favorites, and if you don't agree with her opinion on something, your wrong.
Hilarious, but really really hard teacher. She picks favorites, and is too tough on grading, if she does not like you you are screwed in that class.
She is ok as a person i guess Just i dont like her method of teaching and she is very unclear
I didn't agree with some of the things she did, but overall a nice lady and I learned a heck of a lot.
She is awesome. My current teacher loves her too. She taught how to write the best hooks! Dave Barry Mondays are the best. It took a while to click though
