Although she gives a lot of work, and grades pretty harshly, I have to say that I learned a lot from her class. Reading quizzes might be a pain, but just don't be stupid, keep up with the class, and I guarantee that she will be one of your favorite teachers.

Mrs Lewis, yes, gives a lot of homework and her essays are a bit tougher to master, but as long as you stick to the work that she gives you and don’t slack I can guarantee that she’ll work with you to give you the best possible grade you deserve. Its not a hard class to get an A in as long as you participate and she likes you. Her reading quizzes sometimes destroy but she works with you, she really does care about her students, also towards the end of the yr, snipes and harper had more essays

One of my favorite teachers freshmen year. Her class can be a lot of work, but she definitely knows what she's talking about and makes sure you're prepared for whatever she throws at you. class discussions were always informative and interesting plus she's very understanding and cares about her students <3 A lot of people in my class struggled with the reading quizzes since those really impacted your grade overall and were so specific... she was lenient with most of those quizzes though

I had her for English 1 Honors for both semesters. She assigns a lot of work but you get used to it. Ms. Lewis is very knowledgable and helpful. I definitely saw an improvement in my writing over the year. My favorite teacher freshman year!
