Ridiculous. Over-anaylized every single word or sentence shes ever said when I had her. Marks your papers wrong and gives quizzes that have nothing to do with what you read.

She is a a horrible teacher, and wants her students to fail, she doesn't want anyone to excel in class. She talks to much and it's very boring. She is mean, and rude. She laughs in your face when you try to ask her for help. She doesn't help and hates her students, if she hated students then maybe she shouldn't be a teacher.

nice teacher but talks a lot. Supposedly fails many students by 1 point though. Watch out because she doesn't notify you if you missed something important in class

She is nice, but is very boring, talks forever, and doesn't really teach much. Random/inconsistent grading, sometimes easy, sometimes harsh.

She talks and lectures way too much. The reading tests she gives are nothing related to the stories we read. Otherwise, if you treat her good, shes nice to you. Shes actually a cool person.

I had her for english 9 honors; do the reading and it's an easy grade. I didn't learn much from her & she's pretty boring. She has an accent which can get quite annoying too. Overall, shes alright.

shes sooo easygoing in class, but when it comes time to grading things she takes away points for everything. if she expects us to know everything she should teach everything too
