overall, i think she was a good teacher. Our class discussions were very interesting. However, she appeared to be sweet with her appearance, but seemed EVIL when it came to homework assignments.

Ms. Burke was a really nice teacher. The HW wasn't that bad and a lot of our class was just discussing.

She tries, she is nice, but she is to a degree, weak. She lacks force and conviction, often giving the appearence of not having a clue what she's talking about. It is frustrating doing her assignments, consisting of primarily busy work, and receiving empty promises for reform in the format. Do what she asks and you'll do well, but if you really want to learn and grow, this teacher can only provide limited help.

Miss Burke is very nice and is clear of what she expects from us, but what she expects is very very tough. The homework notes, quizzes, and essays were nightmares. She expects A LOT out of her students.

She's great as long as you keep up with the work because she expects A LOT from you...maybe more than human. She knows she's hard...so she feels for you.

She seems nice, but sometimes it seems fake...she tries hard to be nice, but i guess shes a nicer person than teacher. A lot of the work seems like busy-work.

The whole Elvis thing really told a lot about her character. Not very resting between the ears. The bathroom trips were more reliable than old faithful.
