very helpful and sincere. Best person I have ever met. She made my high school career enjoyable.
Swift is probably the best teacher you'll ever have. Her class isn't very easy but she's super honest and she makes every one of her students feel special ESPECIALLY the ones that need confidence boosts. She doesn't exclude anyone and she does play favorites a little but never exclusively. Everything I learned about life in 11th grade was thanks so her and she has taught me so much more even after I graduated her class. I really wish I had a way to express the way she influenced my life. BEST TEACHER EVER!
YESH, SWIFT IS AMAZING! she was my most favorite english teacher ever. she really opened your eyes to the analysis of stories. her feedback from essays was always meant to make you a better writer. she breaks the fence between student and teacher by making the class very united and open to each other. she really connects with the students. i am very sad she is retiring and no one else can see her teaching glory that has helped so many
SWIFT IS AAMMAAZZIINNGG!!!! She totally helped give me confidence in my writing and improved how I write. She is super cool, fun, chill, and SMART! Nothing but love for Swift :)
Great teacher. really funny. goes off on tangents lots. one of my favorite teachers of all time
Swift is an amazing teacher, she makes english fun. All of those people that complain are probably just lazy in her class because it is hard work but, it's worth it.
best english teacher in Arcadia High School. Do your best and it garantees a B. Don't count on getting an A unless your English is strong or you improve it!
She's the best English teacher ever. Made CP English fun and exciting. :)
Mrs. Swift has all of the best qualities you could ever hope for in a teacher; she is kind, patient, understanding. I love her so much!
the best teacher in history, fun to be around with, and is just cool and understanding to students
This class is like a stand-up comedy. Yet somehow we burn through essays, books, and killing Piggy like mad. Helpful, nice, clear, but we don't like essays. Hence the 4, nobody will give English a 5 for easiness regardless.
shes one of the rare and only teachers that you can talk about anything with, shes very open and a very good teacher. its very hard to fail her class
an AWESOME teacher. she's always willing to help and the best thing about her is that she's willing to extend deadlines if enough people have a conflict with the due date. she does play favorites tho
she plays favorites. those are the ones that always talk with her and stuff. but, she is an excellent teacher and she helped to really improve my analyzing skills.
funny as hell! great teacher overall i got the material and understood her 100% of the time I may have failed but thats my fault for being lazy but great teacher to have any year
Awesome teacher. Vague at times about assignments, but always willing to help students and to extend deadlines to avoid conflicts with major tests/projects. One of the few teachers that really cares about her students.
I wished I had talked to her. I'm 18 now, and it too late. Shes the greatest counselor and teacher. I walk past D-7 a lot, but never find the strength to walk through the door. I envy the kids that know her well .
ok yah shes vague but ask q's..ok yah she plays favorites but not in terms of grading..i kno some her fav kids that dont always get A's...shes an amazing and hilarious teacher
She is rather vague but you're supposed to send her EMAILS. She's a great person to talk to, if you just stay after school for a while. She actually cares about your going to college. & I'm not one of her "favorites".
she's always surrounded by all of her TA's. I mean, when I want to talk to her, it's very difficult to get to her! And finally she rushes you through because there are 50 other students who want to see her as well.
yes she plays favorites but then again, what teacher doesn't? the one thing to remember if you have her class is NOT TO BE AFRAID TO TALK TO HER. so many students are and then blame her when they get a bad grade.
totally played favorites and i was not one of them. entertaining stories. unorganized. 5 hours of hw each day. biased in grading. learned a lot but still thought she was unfair in many ways.
Swift really is the definition of an amazing teacher. Sure, many people say she's vague with her instructions, and I totally agree, but that's all about the honors/AP bond - WORK TOGETHER! An amazing experience in her class!
shes a great teacher and friend until you realize she doesnt care about you. she starts all the drama between students and plays major favorites. make sure you see through her bias and dont become dependent on her support.
Swift is so much fun! Her class is hard and her hw often vague, its a wonderful class. The debates are heavily opinionated and she does plays favorites, but she grades fair. She listens to your personal problems as well. :D
shes a great teacherr!! even if she does favorites though i dont think she does that much shes ALWAYS fair ..esp in grading essays and projects. her ta's help her but she grades all 200+ essays by herself. shes awesome!!
What's wrong with playing favorites? It's because you haven't impressed her with your abilities (or lack thereof) and that is why you aren't someone who should be considered.
the worst teacher ever- plays favorites heavily, doesn't want to help you. She also leaves the entire class confused and doesn't really work- makes the T.A.s do everything.
A very good teacher and advisor. However, I suggest not fighting against her.
She is the best teacher ever. You'll learn so much from her.
as others have said, swift is vague with hw, grading scales, & the weights of assgnmnts and bases it on the students that kiss up to her the most hard to talk to her even with appt
She needs to understand that not all kids have super high ambitions for college, and that people actually have different motivations.
Judy Swift is an illogical hypocrite. She accuses her students of being idealistic while she is a pure idealist herself. She does not know what she is talking about when arguing.
very VAGUE about hw, assignments.favors (biased is more like it) towards the students she likes, therefore shifting the grading scale. hard grader. LOTS of BUSY work.
She sooo cool!! She tells us secrets about how to do well. My writing and all actually got better. The class is so active and so fun!! She understands and tells us cool stories.
she's the best because she's sincere and writes the nicest letters to us before the AP test and at the end of school
Great teacher but plays favorites and she will get in your face if you do wrong. She gets you ready for AP test and overall nice teacher.
prepares you very well for ap. some useless projects. heavy hw, not too hard, just takes hours and hours. do NOT procrastinate. that is imperative.
a cool person, but a hard teacher, not much help when frustrated or you realllllly need it for her class
SHE IS THE BEST! i can talk to her like a friend not a teacher...she actually cares about you...she wants you to succeed. She is hilarious too!
Such a great teacher and she likes to give out help! So sarcastic and every single moment is made for her to say something funny to make us all laugh out loud!!
shes the best english teacher ever. shes pretty hard but its way worth it :D
what an AWESOME TEACHER! im learning so much about english with her, my writing is so much better.
Shes really cool and all u need to do to get help is ask!!!
she's my favorite teacher. i envy anyone who has her. she is so helpful and its such a fun class. she's hard but you actually learn. you'll really like her!!!
coolest teacher ever. really funny and has the best lectures and conversations with the class. great sense of humor, really nice, and will help u alot if u ask.
Pretty cool, very vague on hw assignments... and amount of work is inconsistent, but for the most part, she's pretty hard...
an awesome teacher! really smart, funny, very helpful, energetic..everything!!
By GOD Mrs. Swift is one HARDCORE teacher. Even if I did get a really really... you have no idea... bad grade in her class, she's still really cool, trust me
there should be a special icon on Mrs.swifts page that says not only cool and not cool but awesome...lots of work but lots of fun. ya ya
for those of you complaining about the work being honors hw ... believe me her class is nowhere near as hard as honors. she is an awesome teacher youll love her!
out of all my english teachers, she's the BEST! took creative writing and frosh eng with her. SHE IS THE REASON WHY I GOT INTO ENG HONORS! she OWNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
cool teacher but don't slack off or your grade will drop :/
I had her for freshman year, boy do we do a lot of work, but I've never learned so much in one semester. She actually reads your essays and helps you to improve
She is a smart lady. Provokes controversy and thought, but does play favorites!
I had her for freshman english. She's definitely hard, but I'd probably have never gotten into honors without her help. My writing has improved by a LOT O_O
Gotta love her. She is so helpful and willing to assist students. GO Swift!
she's great at teaching and she's sooo nice! but she gives a lot of hw...
Overly Opinionated and mean, don't give honors HW to non-honors kids.
really hard but i learned a lot and got into english honors
I LOVE MRS. SWIFT SHES AWESOME!!! muah! LOVE U MUCH!
Very cool. Twists English around and makes it fun for everyone
A teacher that changed my life and I will never forget her. She is awsome!
knows what she is doing...her directions for essays are pretty bad though...
cool teacher, hard homework. go to the school plays and get xtra credit 8)
GREAT teacher! hard HW sometimes, but you'll live. helped me into honors eng!
really hard, but worth the time...she learned me into english honors
really hard, does fun stuff, and made me hate english
Cool. Hard. Funny. Contradicts herself sometimes. Learn alot!
The BEST english teacher!!! Although A LOT of hw... great teacher tho. ^-^
AweSomE tEacHer!!~ ...a little too much homework though..
