Her grading policies are totally unfair. She takes off points for minor errors in spelling or citation formatting, which can really hurt your grade on an assignment. She treats students unfairly in classroom discussion, trying to prevent those with differing opinions from arguing their case while helping the students she agrees with. I have her for AP Lit and the other teacher is so much nicer and easier, but she's not teaching this year so everyone is stuck with Herndon

One of the best teachers at Woodson. Her tests may be hard but she is always willing to help especially on essays.

Ms H is super nice. She helped me after school revise a paper so that I understood what I did wrong. Then she re-graded the work for me. All the kids in the Writing Center love her, too. She is one of the best writing teachers you could have even though she grades tough. It is just to help you in the long run.

Ms Herndon is the best! We had fun in class, but she worked us hard and we learned so much, especially about writing. I would recommend her to anyone.

She was a pretty good English teacher- but she made assignments too hard by not giving enough time and grading pretty harshly. She taught books quite well and helped improve my annotating, but she lacked in teaching writing,

Although she seems like a really nice and cool person, she was way too strict and didn't give nearly enough time for many projects. A lot of the time I felt that she didn't explain things clearly enough.

Very cold. Grades inconsistently and way to hard. Teaches books well but doesn't teach writing at all. Sometimes funny, but sometimes innapropriate too.

I used to hate English...until now. She not only corrects homework but also praises what we do well. She does not give busywork and challenges us to do our best. Yay for Mrs. Herdo

She's awesome. She treats us like young adults, granted she is the only class I have homework in during my senior year besides Calculus.

The kids who didn't like her were the ones that sucked at English. Smart lady, good teacher, a little holier-than-thou at times but gave good feedback
