Many people may think that she's depressed or hates her job, but she's actually really funny and has a bit of dark humor. First semester in english honors was more difficult (she gave me B+'s on essays), but she got nicer and easier towards 2nd sem (i got A's on every single essay). She gives a lot of in class essays, but its good prep for APENG. I think she's one of the better sophomore eng honors teachers.

Initially I didn't like Ms. Lee that much because we got off on the wrong foot, she refused to review my essay again. However later on in the year I felt pity as a lot of my classmates were rebellious and disruptive. She seems really stressed because of her job and often got very angry, but no one really listened to her. I can't speak for honors students, but I think she's a teacher who tries, but often can't do her job because of the frustration

I actually really love Ms Lee. In the first semester, i really didn't like her since i texted in class and she would glare at me. But during the second semester, i started participating in class more often and she was honestly quite funny. She is extremely chill and makes fun of the authors and stuff we read in class. She tells you not to eat but she couldn't care less.

Easiest honors English teacher, there's no excuse to not get an A. Sure the materials you learn are boring, but it can be a fun class as long as there's the right people. Mrs. Lee is kind of snarky sometimes, but overalls she is a good person and will explain instructions as long as you ask (unlike Cordero).

She's a really boring teacher. When she reads, she reads in a monotonous voice. It makes you want to fall asleep. BUT she's really nice. Overall, her class is pretty okay... kind of on the easy side.

She's good, anyone incoming to her class should know she really teaches you a lot of material and you go fast. One word of advice; ASK HER QUESTIONS, it will clear up a lot for you.

Meh. Average, but she lets her class have fun most of the time. Make sure to ace all the easy assignments, because they do build up and also because she grades strictly on essays. Overall, she can be good providing you have a fun class.

In my opinion, she is one of the worst teachers in AHS. Not only is she very boring, she also doesn't teach, I literally picked my brain apart trying to remember something she actually taught me....and got nothing. Her grading is also VERY generic and in my opinion, unfair. Low to mid 80s is what you'll probably get, NOBODY gets higher than a 90. I have no idea what scale she grades on. Also, she never marks up an essay, I've gotten almost all my essay with no corrections except for one or two grammar mist

IF YOU WANT TO SURVIVE: I am a Freshmen at AHS and I'm in her Eng Honors Class. I'm going to a private school anyway so I might as well give my name if you want some w.s.'s or tests from her class and old essays to look over for more help. Just ask the 2009-2010 Dana Drum Major and he'll give it to you (he knows me). The first tip- Do all your homework. Not even kidding you guys these little points add up and if ur short 1 point you will shoot yourself. It's nearly impossible to get an A on her essays, so

Mrs. Lee is the coolest english teacher ever! Although her assignments are tough, she really wants you to learn and do good and get good grades! Always finish your homework and procrastinating is a VERY bad idea! DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. It will come back to haunt you! I love how she's so chill like a pickle (SIMILE!:D). Keep all the handouts she gives you because they really do help you in future writing. Long story short, MRS. LEE ROCKS!

she's a really nice teacher. she is willing to sit down and look at your essay if you ever need help. all you really need to do is pay attention in class and DON'T PROCRASTINATE. i think the only bad thing about her is that she is kind of monotone...but besides that she is not that bad:)

She is really un-deserving of such harsh criticism. I had Ms. Diaz first semester, then I got Mrs. Lee and i can tell you, Mrs. Lee is a great teacher, her instructions on assignments are clear, when she grades the grade you get is the grade you deserve, she is really a chill teacher and it is just wrong to insult her when she did nothing wrong.

A few weeks in you could tell she had given up on teaching us. Granted we weren't the best class but still, she never did anything to keep us in line. You would think she would be easy but she really isn't. I'm not sure if she forgets not teaching us the things she puts on the test, but I'm pretty sure we never discussed any of it. Good luck if you have her, ask your honors friends for help, they could probably teach you better than she could.

She is a pretty bad teacher. I'm in her Freshman class and its my worst class. She can't control the class, and she doesn't really teach us a lot. We have lots of grammar, vocab, and other kinds of tests. She doesn't give lots of homework. She doesn't even make us read the entire Oddyssey!! She is really bad!!
