I love in-class discussions with her because she IS a smart woman, but her teaching style leaves something to be desired.

Okay, Ms. Kennett knows a lot about english but she's just really busy with clubs to really put an effort into her teaching. I have her right now for English 2 and we literally did nothing on one of the days. She's pretty chill and plays favorites a lot but that's okay because I'm one of her favorites...

She is the best English teacher i ever had. She is very nice as long as you do your work. I don't know what else to say because there is a lot. But I'm happy I'm having her class again this year!

I don't know why everyone picks on her. Mrs. Kennet is actually one of my most chill teachers. She's super nice, and while the projects and stuff we do are kind of excruciating, she's generally very nice and cool to be around in class. Too bad I got a B in her class in the end.

Mrs. Kennett is an awesome teacher! She's really funny and her class was awesome because it always incorporated art projects to supplement our readings! If you don't cause trouble

We spent an exorbitant amount of time doing art projects. Her class lacked clear focus on priorities. We spent too much time on details, and she certainly plays favorites.

Oh, I definitely agree with all those negative reviews on Kennett. The worst kind of teacher out there is one who plays favorites and picks on students. She is extremely condescending.

I hated her. She keeps saying about how she was appalled that we were a HONORS class, she grades hard, the tests depend on COMPLETE details, over-analyzes useless stuff, always puts people on the spot

She plays favorites horribly, so if you don't speak up in class, she'll sometimes dock points off without telling you why. She's a nice teacher, if you kiss up.

Okay teacher, but she needs a lot of work. She's a nice person but she plays favortism and her teaching methods aren't great. Never helps students improve or make them think/analyze by themselves.

She's a great teacher. After being in her class, it's the opposite of what I've heard so far. She's nice and teaches well.
