Ms. Benson was a great teacher. She is very wise in her teaching philosophy as she pushes her student to fulfill their absolute best form. Originally, I had pinned her as mean and out to get me, but by the end of the year I loved Ms. Benson and even cried on the last day of school because I would (and still will) miss her so much. Overall an awesome teacher and really cares for her students. Do your work, give your best effort, and have a positive attitude, and you will be just fine with Benson!

She seems very strict, but is actually a very nice person. She is very flexible and understands that we are busy with extracurricular activities.

she is very un organized and loses work and says you just didn't do it. however, she gives much leeway when it comes to handing in late work. she never explains anything and you have to figure it out on your own. She also looks like a major cat lady.

She was so great! initially i was terrified of her but only because I knew just how amazingly intelligent she was and i was very intimidated. Her knowledge of the text and clear passion for literature made the class great and challenging.

Ms. Benson (KBenz) isn't just a teacher to me. She is a best friend. She listens and relates to her students, is humorous yet serious when necessary. Her English Honors class is interesting and we study great works of literature. KB is definitely one of my favorite teachers I've ever had.

She's really intelligent, but you can only discuss a single book for so long. Sometimes, it's like she's trying to beat it to death, but somethings we come up with are interesting.She's a nice teacher

She is a good teacher, and she gives lots of homework now and again. Also ,she is really smart and can get over your head a little bit. The books you read are terrible too.
