first thing she gives to much notes which are divided into 4 section that and her not clarifying things for test review are the only things i hated about her but rather than that shes kinda nice if you dont talk alot cause there was a kid in my class would always get on her nerves and he would get owned by her seriously some teachers got great comebacks my whole class would go "ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh"

she is an OK teacher and i still have her now but she can become your enemy if you let her. she doesn't really go over topics well and only hears and see's what she wants. even with that in mind i have to say that she is a very knowledgeable teacher and if you have a positive attitude around her, even if she acts in a way that angers you, eventually she will warm up to you.

I hated Ms. Etkin. She gave us work during homeroom! Not only that, she mixed english with ss all the time, and if she didnt give hw in one, she gave double the hw in the other subject. too many tests, and to get 4s, you have to write really boring essays

She's an OK teacher I guess. Sometimes she screams out some random word in the middle of her sentence, that was odd. Very oldfashioned, too. Shouldn't mix S.S. with english, stick to your own subject and don't dis out the other s.s. teachers!!
