I have never met someone I've so highly respected in my life. This woman is someone you can depend on, whatever the case. Having her as a teacher and a coach for Speech, has definitely made me see the world in a different way. I can not put into words how dearly important she is to me. She will always support you, and yes she will come after you with her iron grip if you don't fulfill your duties. The most dedicated teacher I've ever met. Know her value. She is truly incredible. LONG LIVE LSD :)

Mrs Brasher is honestly one of the most inspiring women you will ever meet, but you have to be willing to take the initiative in Speech and Debate. The skills she teaches don't only help you with a grade- they are applicable to pretty much any occupation you want to get into. In this day and age, the ability to speak and converse properly is vital, and Mrs Brasher WILL teach you how to do it. I have no idea how she manages the best S+D team in the nation. She is amazing.

In one year, Ms. Brasher has hundreds of students—what's amazing is that she cares about every single one of them. Through genuine dedication and love, Brashbrash spends almost all her time helping students in any way she cans. Never have I had a teacher like her, who is the epitome/role model of all teachers. She knows when to push and when to be understanding; someone needs to care for her health because she's too busy caring for everyone else!

Ms. Brasher is one of the best teachers I have ever had, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have been taught by such an inspirational, energetic, and wise person. Even through the scary times of her yelling, I always knew that she only got angry due to her intense dedication and love for us. I will never forget my time in speech, and she has definitely changed my life for the better. (PS- try not to get on her bad side, but if you do it is possible to become a "favorite")

She is very passionate about speech and debate and is also very helpful. She helped me at times, but she also got really upset with me at others. I remember one time after talking to her she made me feel so bad about myself I wanted to cry. And this wasn't the only time. She is a great teacher who puts in a lot of effort, but she needs to realize that some kids are not as talented as others, and there is no need to be frustrated and make them feel bad.
