Ms. Defay is a very fun teacher. Her class is relaxed and work is still accomplished. If you're taking a senior english class with her, she will treat you like an adult, which is nice for a change. She wasn't my most challenging teacher, but her class was very enjoyable.

DeFay is by far my favorite teacher of all time. Sure, her tests are tricky but she goes over almost everything in class. You'll be fine as long as your attentive and pay attention. Read the books!!!

Lovely person, bad modern fiction teacher. She loves literature but can't analyze it. Rarely had assignments (and they were dumb). Learned and did a lot of nothing. Good books though. Take Jensen.

If you're in an honors class- IT IS AN HONORS CLASS. Don't expect it to be easy to get an A with her. One of my favorite teachers I've ever had! Love you Defay!

Defay is good at what she does but I agree with other post. She is just way too nice to some kids who take advantage. She needs to kick them out! Tests are 2 hard but she is fair.

Ms. DeFay, oh dear Ms. DeFay. You are great- but your class is out of control and extremely difficult to succeed in. Frustrating but entertaining- great literature analysis. Love her.

Best teacher ever. She's always in tune with how you're feeling. She always asks if your day is going alright and if there is anything she can do to help. I love her!
