Dang, I've had her for about 7 weeks, and I can vouch for it. Most of the kids in my class don't have her as their favorite teacher. She has already picked her favorite student, and she's incredibly biased based on who answers her questions. I don't even understand her at all.
Mrs. Drake is great. I didn't expect her to be a really nice teacher, due to rumors and stuff. Also, my bro and sis said she was strict too so I was honestly scared. But in reality, it was actually ok. Although she is slightly strict and grades harshly, she changed my life. Her socratic seminars progressively became easier for me and definitely made me more confident to speak in class. Q1 was hard for me, but overall, I did pretty well in her class. Currently have a 94%!
Has extremely high expectations, but when you meet them you will probably find the class not as hard as you think. Has a serious problem with favoritism. Stay on her good side!
honestly, this isn't even an english class. Its more like speech and debate. You must talk a lot and then after you speak, she judges you and gives negative comments. Also, this class is so unfair because all the very shy, but smart people get F's and all favorites and vocal people get A's.
One of the best teachers ever
I'm not sure about Her English class but for HR she is awesome!
sometimes rude and insensitive but she can be really nice sometimes and is a good teacher.
Hardest teacher I had. (Cause I got worst grade ever T.T)
One of the best teachers I've had at HMS. She comes off as strict and intimidating at first but I've learned to appreciate that! She calls on people randomly in class which is annoying but I know it's good. I asked her for help once on how to write better word choice and she was really willing and somewhat helpful. Then she went on about how she loves it when someone comes to her for help...anyways, you'll actually learn in her class not mr. folsom's
She's a little strict sometimes, but it's only been the first day of school and I can tell she will be a great teacher.
GREAT ENGLISH TEACHER. May be strict at first, but has many exciting activites in class. Probably one of the better english teachers in san marino
Totally COOL English teacher...I would love to have her again! She can be nice at the right times!
i don't realli lyke her b/c she like totally said i plagerized my essay when i didn't....ughh but other than that she was a pretty good teacher...prepares you well for 8th grade :]

I love mrs. drake!!! XD She's awesome!! I really miss her class, because althou thayer's a GREAT teacher, I just HATE grammar, and in drake we do more writing stuff.
Drake is actually a super good teacher and prepares u for highschool and helps you on english if you get stuck. Shes has diffrent mood swings. Her voice can get annoying. shes strict and gives out too much homework.
shes cool i think she gives a bit too much hw but she is ok her tests are difficult but her class is interesting my writing will get good
Shes an awesome teacher, but she could cut down on all the projects. Im up till 1 almost every night doing here homework! She should loosen up sometimes and not be so strict!
I LOVE MRS.DRAKE, she is an awsome teacher... i also like talking to her, shes soooo nice!!!!!!!!!
sometimes sarcastic and picks on people, but does help with writing skills
she's the BEST ever and she's SOOO kool. her kids are nice to. she always has fun stuff to do but could cut back a little on homework.
Drake doesn't really teach you anything - just gives lots of boring work
She's a great teacher and always tries to improve our English
when she was shaperoning at Wonder Valley, she let us sneak into her room and watch cable tv!!! she is da KWLiest!
