I feel bad for Beall. She seems to love literature but she's SO out of it. She has no understanding of high schoolers. I've had an A all year and can't complain, but so do most people - and we've all learned nothing from her. She'd probably fare well running a book club, but a HS class seems to be too much for her. The class is a joke. She spends an inordinate amount of time taking roll and writing "reminder" notes. You won't "regret" the class bc it's easy, unless you were hoping to learn a lot

She should not be teaching AP Lit. She is very disorganized and spends the first half of the class taking attendance. If you ask for help you have to come in during a separate time even if the class is doing nothing.

she's really easy and there isn't much hw, but during class she can get really annoying when you can't talk to her for a second, she constantly has to refocus a thousand times, anything that interrupts class will cause for her to refocus again, she cant talk to you unless you make an appointmen for every single little thing and SHE NARRATES HER ENTIRE LIFE and i mean everything! but if you can ignore all of that then is good nap time

Easiest class i've even taken. She's such a sweet lady but she lets students take advantage of her. We never have a lot of homework, just major assignments due every once in awhile.

At least I've gotten a lot of my homework done here...and ample nap time. She's so goofy, and oblivious to everything. She doesn't know people sleep under the table. haha. Class is really easy though.

um, she's usually nice but her class is extrememly boring and so far I don't feel prepared for the AP exam. The advantage of having her is you can do your homework for other classes. Sit in the back.

One of the most boring teachers I've ever had. Alot of the times when you ask her questions, she'll accuse you of wasting her time and holding up the class. Very hard grader.

If she likes you, you'll do well, if you don't, then good luck...she never has time to talk one on one

She is obsessed with flow and order. Be careful not to disagree with her thoughts on a poem, yours will be wrong. Post its anyone?

I like Mrs. Beall, I think she is given a hard time, eventhough she is a very nice person.

She's really nice if she likes you. She spends too much time on talking. I learned very little because the class was so weird. The schedule--eww.

She repeats everything, so if you pay attention it's a real easy class.
