Helton's class is literally hell. She does not allow any interpretation of your own and believes that ONLY her interpretation of the book is "right." No actual thinking is even needed in her class. All the homework are basically summaries of the book and do absolutely nothing to help understand the novel better. She pretends to be enthusiastic and kind; however, she talks trash about her students and classes behind their backs. Helton is horrible, I refuse to take AP English because of her.
She pretends to know more than she actually does and likes to talk about herself too much. She looks down on her students, even in AP, but she also picks favorites. She's kind of a psycho.
Loved her classes, but I heard she's not quite as great in A.P.
She loves her subject, but she wants things her way. She is very keen, which is intimidating. the quality of her ap lit class depends heavily on the students, whereas her lit b is always top-notch.
The BEST english teacher in our school, her enthusiasm is truly contageous.
Mama always said, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. This is me keeping silent.
Mrs. Helton is one of the best English teachers that I've had at West Side. Her class isn't easy, but you will learn a lot and improve your writing style.
i am very blessed to have had mrs. helton for both brit lit B and ap lit.
Very enthusiastic teacher, she made Brit Lit interesting. A whacky lady. Even her saying I did nothing but cynically look at her during class doesn't hurt her.
Her AP class is really hard BUT she is willing to help you out. She is a really good teacher
I think she is really helpful. She's always in her room to talk to.
