Mrs. Reed is a teacher you will grow to hate. She constantly loses assignments and gets very angry. Her assignment board is VERY sloppy and confusing. Lots of tests also. Every week she makes you do two 3 paragraph articles on an issue in the news. She never reads these. Don't get her!

I never had her for English but I really wish I had. She expects a lot from her Civitas cla sses, but as long as you get on her good side freshman year you'll be fine. Really understanding when it comes to making up work from absences. Can get away with late work if she likes you ;) Demonstrate to her that you have a genuine passion for learning by asking questions and taking up her offers for out-of-school activities. Make friends with your civitas classmates & work together IT'S THE ONLY WAY

Very difficult teacher, but taking her class is rewarding. She can come off a bit rude sometimes, I recall one day she was yelling at the class and she singled me out, embarrassing me greatly. Overall, the class was fantastic.

She is a really good teacher, even if she does give a lot of busy work. She is hard, but she teaches how to write and that is very valuable. Don't be scary, you'll get through it.

After having her for three years, I can say that Mrs. Reed takes a bit of getting used to, but compared to future offerings she's by far the best English class you're going to get. The low reviews come partially because of the way that her class sheds students - in many cases students who survive are the wheat amongst the chaff of average Honors students from middle school. She gives a ton of homework, and occasionally this backfires on her when it comes to collecting it, but if you watch your missing assig

Do the work, and pay attention. She is a nice person, her bark is worse than her bite. She has a lot to teach, so respect that. You will gain a great basis of literature knowlegde for your next years in the English program. In Civitas, she favors you(us) so know that. She expects you to be smarter (really that just means your essays can be bs and she won't care as much). She yells so much you become immune to it, don't sweat. She stopped teaching us once, said we were being rude. Keep up with the work.

She definitely is not as strict as she makes herself seem; she's actually a super fun teacher. Do the work, participate in class and don't talk while she's talking and you'll learn a lot and do great in the class. The cultural aspect of the class is fun as well. Just make sure to do the essays on time and follow her instructions for writing them because those are the biggest part of your grade, and manage the work because there tends to be a fair amount of it.

Ahh, Mrs. Reed. Many students have fallen for her angry teacher act, it's pretty funny because I always thought it was pretty obvious that she just acts mean for fun. She knows what she is doing and uses an interesting teaching style. If you want to see actual mean teachers, go see Mr. Robertson, Mr. Jamieson, etc.

I love Mrs. Reed. Though people think she is mean and hates them, I think she simply just wants to prepare us for the outside world and college. Everyone one who has graduated from her class and went to college has told me that having her as a teacher really did help them or is currently helping them in college. She really wants to help and you really do learn a lot. She definitely knows what she is talking about and believe in every student. She just wants students to reach their potential.

She covers information that has nothing to do with the standards of the class. She has the idea that 3 twenty question-long short answer tests are easy if they are open-book. Avoid CIVITAS.

She is a teacher that you are warned about at the beginning of the year when someone looks at your schedule, but if you speak up in class, turn in homework, and try to do well, it is an easy class. But beware! if one essay is not turned in, you fail the class! Also remember to turn in big projects on the deadline. by the end of the year it is also really easy to get away with turning in late work if you don't mention it to her.
