First of all, Higgins prepared me for the English regents more effectively than any other English teacher I had. More importantly, though, she got me through high school; I don't know if I could've survived it without her. She made my day, every day, and was always there for me when I needed her.

Higgs is the bomb. Her tests can be challenging especially if you don't read the material and just sparknotes the books but as long as you pay attention in class you should be fine. Beware of vocab tests though. Also, Higgins scraps are the greatest do nows, don't take them for granted because once you leave that class and don't have them any more you'll miss them terrible (like I did.)

Higgy/Higgitron's class is a lot of fun. I always looked forward to her do nows. She always made English seem enjoyable. She is crazy, but in the best way possible

Her test are ridiculous, she expects you to memorize very specific quotes from novels. She loves dogs (I do too), but we once spent a whole class period in an argument over cats and dogs. I don't mean to be mean; but I honestly do believe her class is a waste of time. The "Do Nows" were very enjoyable though. The other reviews on this site are pretty good, so maybe I just have to high expectations for her. I had Biondi last year and maybe he just set a high bar.

Ms. Higgins is quite a nice teacher, she doesn't give a lot of hard work, however, her exams might be a little difficult if you don't understand the topic. Her class is enjoyable regardless of the work. The "Higgins scraps" are very fun to listen to.

I think she was very nice, and as a person, she's awesome. However she gives out a bit too much homework and way too many projects. Overall, she's alright in my book. She's very sweet. :)

Met her over summer school, easily one of the warmest teachers ever. A heart of gold, and truly gets to know the students and who they really are. Gives decent schoolwork, so you actually learn.
