I, too, had Mrs. Werkenthin back in 1999 for English IV AP. I was quite the slacker b/c I had issues & was misunderstood, but Ms. W could sense the underlying problems. Now in Grad School @ St. Eds.
I was so angry that she had to leave. When she told me I could see how much it meant to her. She touched us all and helped us grow and made my senior year. She's a great woman.
I had Ms. Karen Werkenthin in the 1999-2000 school year for Advanced Placement English. To this day, she still gives me goosebumps. Never read and received Cs
I have learned so much from Mrs. Werkenthin, she is by the far the best teacher I have ever and most likely will ever have. And she is a very very nice person.
Werk is great. Her class is serious English (for once), and she rules with an iron fist of terror. Appreciate the act, and you'll also learn how to write.
i must say she is one of the best teachers at westlake. excellent for learning how to write and great emphasis on individual development.
I write English pretty good; I can't figure out why i always fail papers. Mrs Werkenthin's not good.
No one knows if she is a nice person deep down, and just evil on the surface, but either way, she doesn't tolerate questions. If you're GT, I'm sorry.
