Fantastic teacher. She has a passion and love for her job and it shows. She guides students on how to dig deep within and think. I'm a much better student because of her. Every student should be blessed to have a teacher like Lutes

I love Mrs. Lutes so much! You can tell that she loves her job and is so passionate about reading and writing. For a while I hadn't read as much as I used to, but once I got Mrs. Lutes she was able to spark my love for reading once again. She's so pretty and it's inspiring to see how emotional she gets with some literature. Best teacher ever!

Mrs. Lutes is the best! She is so inspiring and really cares about her students and her job- I look forward to going to English every day and have learned a tremendous amount of material in the short time I have had her as a teacher. She's super cute and spunky! Although she challenges us, it is ultimately for our better! :)

Mrs. Lutes is already my favorite teacher of all time, and I've only had the privilege of being her student for about a month. Mrs. Lutes has been through so much but continues to teach her students all of her knowledge. Kelly Lutes is the smartest personin life and in English that I've ever met and I'm ecstatic that I get a whole school year to learn under her wing.

All she did was give busy work that didn't help any one in the class at all. She is lazy and likes to sit at her computer and work on other things other than teaching her students. She picks favorites and if you aren't one of them, it sucks for you. Bad teacher who doesn't do her job and likes to give busy work that can easily be done at home.

Plays favorites a lot. If you do not enjoy literature she will do anything in her power to try and sway you into loving it. Overdramatizes pretty much everything. Good luck having opinions that do not agree with hers. It
