Her class is really challenging and her homework policy is stupid but I feel like I learned a ton from her a class and I really enjoyed it. Her class is sooo informative and we went so indepth into everything and it's awesome. As a person she's actually okay. You can do well if you work hard. I loved this class overall!! :)

She creates a very harsh environment, personal opinions are her enemies, and its not a great place to learn, HOWEVER, she is one of the most knowledgeable english teachers out there, and if you respect her insane rules, she will better you as a writer.

she definitely improves your skills as a writer, but she often changes her mind and expects you to follow her train of thought.

Ms. Goller is an interesting character. She never ceases to amuse/frustrate/humiliate me. She has told me multiple times that my opinion is wrong. This is not a good quality in an English teacher.

Very poor teacher. Cannot perform the simple necessities such as spelling or keeping the class interested. No room for opinion or imagination in an English Class. My least fav. teach/class this year

Miss Goller seems hard but I really think she will help with writing. She seems a bit dry, just pay attention and you will learn a lot. A lot of HW in honors.

She is a great english teacher, meaning you knows her stuff, but when it comes to having your own opinons she completely shuts you down, then makes you look bad infront of the clas

She has a hard outer shell, but I think that is because some people really don't appreciate her. She's a great teacher but I just think people don't give her a chance.
