To be very honest, Gwen Holmesley should work a bit better, and actually be a teacher. she works from the textbooks, she has no feelings, she doesnt care for the students, she only seems to understand what she can read. i was in her class and 90% of the class absolutely hated her. I did too. she was so confusing, she wasnt very helpful or caring, like i have stated already...she needs to learn how to teach better....honestly. also, WAY TOO MUCH TEXTBOOK USE

I'm in eighth grade and I absolutely HATED her class. She would have us do unessasary work sheets and quizzes that shouldn't have affect our grade! Most of the time it seemed like she didn't know what she was doing.

I would not consider Gwen HOLMESLEY a teacher. She is a nice lady and try's to do her job. But honestly, I don't think as a teacher that your job is to assign book assignments all day. Many good teachers would think that is not considered teaching and it's wrong. Good teachers can get student's attention while educating them at the same time. Good teachers are loved by their students. I have never had fun in Mrs. Holmesleys class, she is extremely hard and not fit to be a teacher.

She knows what she is doing but doesn't explain directions clearly, very confusing, and not very nice either. Wouldn't really recommend her as a science teacher.

I can not honestly decide, I sometimes have a bad relation ship, as she is often unclear, yet what she gives us is usually fair and balanced, she puts up with a lot, I am surprised with the fact that she doesn't go on an detention spree and scream at half the kids in her class. Because a lot of the times they provoke her to. I know I would. But she is a rather considerable teacher. Alot of these comments are rather harsh and untruthful.

She is strict because she was a high school teacher and needs to realize that this is 7th grade. She gives too much work compared to other teachers and doesn't explain things well enough.

Mrs.Holmsley is very boring and fails to Teach her subjects clearly. She knows what she is talking about but fails to teach it.
She has favorites and is super strict. I would like to say she does allow a lot of interaction

Homelsey is a great teacher! She may be strict but she knows what she's talking about. She can be interesting and fun to talk to. Overall she's a great teacher. Though some say she's boring, this is somewhat true but if you stay focused and understand the concept she becomes more fun!

Hands down, the worst teacher I’ve ever had in my nine years of school! Don’t get me wrong, she’s a great person…just not…cut out for the job. I’m SO glad I’m in eighth grade and OUT of her class!
