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 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
