Although she was a good teacher during the first marking period in terms of grammar and other technical aspects of English (good at teaching definitions/punctuation/structure of sentences), I do not find her a very good teacher when it comes to literature. She expects us (her students) to remember seemingly arbitrary facts and situations from the piece and doesn't really explain why she has chosen them. I liked her from September to about January, but now she's just a pain.

She knows a lot but i wish she led by example. some of the things she says to her students can be hurtful even though that is not her intention.

One of the best teachers in WOHS. She really knows what she is doing. In fact, I shouldn't have used "really" in that last sentence. You learn a great deal in her class, and she means well.

Incredibly kind and helpful. She loves literature and her students. Great resource for academic as well as social advice; I'm in college and we still chat. Do your work and you won't have a problem.
