SHE ATE ME ONCE, BUT SHE POOPED ME OUT. SHE ATE ME CUS I WAS LATE, HAD A MESSY BACKPACK, AND DID NOT GIVE HER A PROPER GOOD MORNING. SHE CAN ALSO FIRE LASERS FROM HER EYES BY EXERTING MASSIVE PRESSURE ON THE FLUIDS IN HER EYES CAUSING THEM TO PROJECT. I ALSO THINK SHE MIGHT BE RANDY JACKSON IN DISGUISE BUT SHE KEEPS REFUSING TO SIGN MY KATANA.

I loved having her as my teacher. She is very strict but in the end it helped me so much with my writing. I am such a better writer now because of her.

Easily the best teacher I had in high school. She not only taught me how to be a great writer, but also an overall better student. She was hilarious, knowledgeable, polite, and really knew her stuff.

Being taught by Mrs. Duffy = Priceless. You will learn everything you need to know in her class. Best teacher to have unless you value grade over knowledge

She gives way too much homework. Too much writing. I urge her to reconsider.

Frankly, Ms. Duffy is the only TZ English teacher who has the ability to effectively teach writing to students at every point along the capability continuum. To sit in her classroom is to become acquainted with reading and writing on the collegiate level.
