When I was in 8th grade, I thought she was mean and useless. But today, I am a junior taking APUSH. I realized how amazing she was and she is probably the best teacher I ever had. Her method of teaching truly makes an impact.

I haven't been one of Mrs. Strauss's students since 2004, but since I grew up and realized what an amazing instructor she was, I've been trying to find her on facebook or some other means so I can thank her for all she did for me. Though she may be a bit eccentric at times, it only serves to help us remember her years down the road. I was a troubled but intelligent student who lacked motivation, and Mrs. Strauss believed in me and supported me when no one else did. I cannot thank her enough.

Her explanations in class are often too descriptive, such as an exuberant amount of adjectives. She also takes way too long to get to the point of her lesson.

One of my favorite teachers of all time. She makes you think, teaches you how to write, and she loves what she does. I'll never forget the musical!
