Ms. Burkett was the only teacher in High School that saw my potential, and really helped me become a good writer. She was definitely knowledgeable about English. I found her extremely helpful, if you showed her that you tried as well as cared!

A lot of people did not like Ms. Burkett, I personally didn't have a problem with her. I was in her English 10 class. As long as you're polite she will gladly help you out. Her class for me wasn't hard, she graded fairly, and was a good English teacher. Though, sometimes you have to be careful with her assignments because sometimes she assigns it to one class but forgets to so with another.... She is a nice lady and offers review sessions for her tests. Her tests are usually pretty fair.

I feel like she makes stuff up to take points off. She takes outrageouse grades off(4ths and 8ths). She is really easy and I got like a 98 in her class but I have absolutely no respect for her. She is one of the least helpful teachers that I have ever had and if you get her I would reccomend transfering out of her class.

she doesnt help you with anything. when you ask her for help on a paper she will tell you to do something and then once you've done it she will change her mind and she has no clue how to teach at all

I honestly have no idea where to start. She is the worst teacher I've ever had in my entire life. She contradicts herself more than she says anything related to the class. She has no clue what she's talking about 90% of the time. She also takes point off

Her first name pretty much sums it up. She told me that I probably shouldnt take Honors English 11 because my writing was very good. I gave her my composition folder and the lowest grade in there was an 89%. She then proceeded into a very rambling diat

Literally screamed at me to get to work when I turned around to say something to my friend, and I was ahead of everyone in a reading packet we were doing by 3 chapters. Good teacher though I guess, just not the best personality.

Really honestly has no idea what she's talking about. I will unfortunately spend more time unlearning all of the incorrect writing styles she drilled into us instead of continuing to grow as a writer.

Ms. Burkett isn't really that bad of a teacher. We had a student teacher and with her not teaching and observing us, once she came back to teaching us she loved our class and was fairly easy on us. She is a nice person outside of the classroom too

she needs to decide what the assignment is. She assigns it one day, then we go home and work on it, and then the next day, she completely changes it and everything we did is wrong. she needs to move faster...we spent 2 months on a story that is a day long

Because she's difficult and has high expectations, people hate her. If you can muscle through her class, you will come out much much better than you went in. She's a better teacher than she gets credit for and gets a bad rap. Good teacher though.

I enjoy her class. If you have any talent in writing at all her class is easy. Even though her TA has taught us most of the year so far, i get away with sleeping all class and still coming out with an A. She's actually pretty nice too.

Dear person who said "everyone below can't spell or write a decent sentence", you miss spelled wraith, it is acctually "wrath," unless you think she is a ghost? She is not my favorite teacher.

Even though her class is very challenging and unfair at times, I do have a lot of respect of her. As much as I hate to admit it, I have learned so much in that class that will end up being a huge benefit for me.

I for one think Mrs. Burkett is a very good teacher. She's tough but lets you know what she wants and teaches well. Her assignments might be hard, but she's a nice person.

just a note: when you stay after school i would expect she would help you instead of telling you she has to go home after you sit there for 1.5 hours. she needs to add people into class discussionsm ore than her just talking for 42 minutes of my life
