Mrs. Moore may have been one of the least amiable teachers I have had in my entire academic career. She is completely unapproachable, and after the first couple of months I stopped approaching her with questions in fear of being scrutinized, shamed, or simply left more confused than I was to start with. For someone so involved and obsessed with high school, she is incredibly insensitive in dealing with her students. She evidently picks favorites, and almost completely disregards everyone else

One of my favorite teachers at uni, for sure. She makes us think and helps with improving our writing by having a "growth mindset." The tests are easy if you just know the content and essays are straightforward, you just need to put in an effort. She really cares for everyone individual and wants to help with whatever she can. Overall, her class is a relaxing/safe environment for everyone.

Best English teacher ever! I literally came into the class and I could barley write an essay, she taught me everything on how to communicate my thoughts on to paper. She is a great teacher but expects a lot from students. My advise is; don't ask dumb questions, be smart, and be yourself.

Class is hard, no question about it. But, if you are persistent and determined, you will get the hang of it. For those of you concerned on whether or not she is understanding or picks favorites, I understand. However, she is just a human being who enjoys learning about her students; therefore, you cannot expect her to be equally adoring or indifferent to her students if some of them have never spoken in her class. Be confident and she will reward you for that.

From previous students of her, I was definitely looking forward to having her as an AP Lang teacher, but after about 3 weeks I still felt extremely uncomfortable and unconfident. She's ruthless when it comes to the students personal life and sincerely does not care if a student is dealing with issues in the class, even if you come up to her and ask personal help, unless you're one of her favorites, she's useless. She knows her information, just is not able to it correctly.

Ms. Moore is a teacher who has got a plenty of coins. However she doesn't do a great job in putting all the coins inside the piggy banks.

For those who did not understand; Ms. Moore has a plenty of knowledge and knows her stuff. However she doesn't do a good job applying her knowledge to the students.

She seems like she knows her stuff but her class is extremely difficult. It starts out okay but exponentially gets closer to impossible. I cry myself to sleep from the stress and workload in class and at home. I detest going to school because of the stress I get just thinking about her class.

Mrs. Moore teaches English the way it should be taught.
Sadly, I have acquired such a deeply-set distaste for English classes from the horrible "classes" I've had in the last three years that I am leery of starting to actually like Mrs. Moore's English 4 class.
In this class, we're learning about

I don't think she grades hard at all. And with her curve, it's really hard not to get an A. She's very sweet and approachable; like all my other Honors English teachers I've had, you feel like you can talk to her without being afraid, as if you're friends. Very helpful, wonderful teacher!
