She totally tore apart my writing skills and built them up far better. I crapped myself every day wondering if there was a pop essay in preparation for the AP test senior year.

Ms. Uranga was my English teacher both in Junior High and High School (graduate class of 1987). She was by far the best English instructor in Arcadia.

Had her for AP Senior. Not half as scary as she would like you to think. Stay on top of things. Definitely easier than Swift's class!! WORK OFF YOUR TARDIES.
