Pros - Ms. O'Connor's best quality were her excellent comments given on essays. Allowed us to read To Kill a Mockingbird (a great book). Probably the best English teacher I've had in grades 6 through 9. Easy to do well in her class
Cons - VERY passive aggressive with students. Goes on too many tangents about her daughter, brain tumor, etc. Gives little teaching about grammar. Her 9th grade writing class hardly improved my writing. Jekyll and the Hyde was awful to read
Rating - 7/10

I loved Mrs. O'Connor! She has such good analytical ideas and articulates them well. I genuinely enjoyed her class and learned a lot. It was so easy to talk to her; She is down to earth, and seems like a really fun person. English is now my favorite subject and I feel confident as a writer. Her advice has helped me so much. My favorite teacher so far, and I cant imagine having a better one. 5/5 stars.

Best teacher I have had in High School. Articulate, passionate, fair and helpful. More like a college professor, but also very warm and supportive. Why can't all teachers be this smart and motivated?

She's really nice and engaging. She keeps your interest, and actually teaches you how to read between the lines, which most teachers either assume you already know or don't bother to teach.

I really like Ms. OConnor. She makes class interesting with her jokes and stuff. She's a hard grader, but fair. Also, she finds time for extra help if you make an appointment.
