I had Ms. O'hare for LA 1 honors for my freshman year at North. I agree that it is very difficult to get good grades in her class. I got a C for the first semester and was devastated. However, she is a very good teacher and I have definitely learnt a lot from her. I was really struggling in the beginning, but she definitely helped me improve drastically in the subject.She is a harsh grader which really pissed me off at firs, but it actually made me want to try harder.
So I was in her Honors class last year, and she taught me nothing. Seriously. I mean, we read a lot of novels last year and all this stuff, and I loved the poetry unit- but she herself never taught me anything. As a person who has loved reading her whole life, I felt de-motivated to l improve my writing. SHe got engaged last year and forgot to teach us half the curriculum.
Trust me, you'll fail LA I Honors with a teacher like her.
So basically, everyone who wrote a review saying "nicest teacher" and other good things about her were not in her honors class. So, if you get her for honors, you're practically guaranteed a bad grade. If you get her for cp, then its an easy A.
One of the worst teachers I have ever had. Does not teach anything, asks us to read on our own. Very slow grader...
I like her as a teacher a lot, her grading takes too long and is unfair on essay's. Her test's are always hard, but it is possible to well in that class, All you gotta do is do the work an study and you will be fine.
Her first name is Denise...but she really is a pretty bad teacher. It's very discouraging to get her as a freshman LA student because she's so bad, but there are definitely better teachers out there!
She is a nice woman but not the greatest teacher. I did not learn anything from her. I can barely remember the class! Only memorable thing about her is that she dated Derek Jeter and did not know who he was while they were together. Not the easiest grader and not the most helpful...min feedback
So dresses in a way in which she shouldnt. But I can deal with that. She just doesn't treat her students like people, and is not able to teach properly. Definitely not a teacher you will remember for life, or even like throughout the year.
she seems lik she's in her own world, and it's only been the first day
okay teacher, don't get distracted by her or you'll fail
I love her class....the discussions are interesting!! She's great!
dude she just talks about her the whole period if we dont talk about ourselves easy and chilling!
I did not learn anything, except vocab for a temporary memory of 2 weeks max. She grades essays really harshly. I did not learn anything that will help me 4 SAT
yo miss o hare is the chillest teacher... shes awesome.. shes wicked nice adn esay going
approachable, but she cant and doesnt teach. the discussions were boring and thats what we did the most, and the rest of the time we did projects
i like the project we did with the big melons and the sideways smile
How can you not like her? She's the best teacher I've ever had. She's nice, supportive, easy going, and fun. She can relate to students because she's young.
She's kinda cool but i just can't really stand her....
