She knows what she's doing and is smart, she's just terrible at articulating her ideas, which makes multiple choice questions very impossible. Try to become her friend, and understand that going after school to argue questions back will probably get you nowhere, even if your arguments are valid. Just make sure you're crystal clear with her to offset her hopelessly confusing general attitude. She thinks she's always clear but she rarely is, and that's the #1 thing to be prepared for.

She's fine; as long as you read and do your work, you will get through the class. Just be prepared to be called out for the BS if you try it.

I love her! Getting stickers in her class is great and really helps kids participate and learn. As long as you aren't a total dummy the class is fun and easy.

Be very, very, quiet in her class. We don't do much work, only 1-2 essays for the entire semester, but she is ultimately nice and we have a lot of fun She tries to pretend shes hard, but she's not...

She likes to pretend she's hardcore. Don't be fooled. She just runs her mouth.
