She's very nice outside the classroom and when she's stress free, like on trips or after a concert. But in class she contradicts herself, forgets instructions she tells us (and then gets angry at us for doing them)

She is very bad tempered and rude. She is very contradictory and hypocritical. Not helpful at all. She does not stand up for us and picks "favorites"

She's very irrational and often forgets the instructions she gives us. She's not helpful and having her is very frustrating because she is extremely moody. She relies on the talents of students rather than helping the whole.

She used to be very mean and irrational. But after the complaints by students, she has become very nice. I knew she wasn't really mean because she was so nice in Frost. Now, she's a little weird,but does care for the students

Needs to rethink her afterschool policies and requirements like CARWASHES! Decent teacher, needs not to be absent so much. Needs to not blow up so much

Always late, sometimes absent. Unfocused, disorganized, and childlike in her treatment of students. Simms lacks common sense and the right attitude.

Why is she a teacher? She only cares about awards, not her students' learning. She will leave you out if you are not useful to her.

if she took a second or two to actually teach us maybe she wouldn't have to yell at us when we can't play the music and its her fault
