Ms. G was my favorite teacher I had all through high school! She was the english and drama teacher (I know I'm dating myself here) when I graduated. She was such a good teacher and funny as heck. You are lucky if you get her!

One of the best teachers I've ever had, willing to help and teaches her students the things they need to know to succeed in life, not just what the county tells her to say like every other teacher. Very funny, keeps the classroom light. I love learning with her.

I had her for debate, and shes one if the best teachers I had, she has a unique way of making every student in class feel welcome. Whether it be nicknames, jokes, or just being friendly, after a few weeks, everyone seems to like her.

Ms. G was wonderful, and my quality of work improved greatly thanks to her. I certainly wasn't one of her "favorites" but I never noticed that take a toll on my grade. She just had a tendency to gravitate toward those students who were already good at what she was teaching.

Ms. G can be annoying if you don't have any interest in school. If you just participate and try to enjoy the class it is a great class. Her material is hard but justly so.

Ms. G is the most amazing teacher ever. As long as you can take a joke and roll with the punches you will do fine in her class. She doesn't grade on kindness however, but the content of your work.
