She is an amazing teacher! too bad she is retiring this year..but I have learned so much from and my writings has gotten a lot better thanks to her. Also, I have never really understood grammar, but now I understand it so much better. She is a strict-ish teacher but she really wants to prepare us for AP English. I hope I get more teachers like her in the future!
