She is a great person. She's extremely kind hearted and has a great way of thinking, however, her class is very stressful. She gives out way too much work and grades EVERYTHING.

The best teacher I have ever had. Losing her as a teacher was comparable to the death of a family member. I was devastated and I'm still collecting presents for her.

I've had Mrs. Beres for 3years now: Honors10,for journalism1, and journalism2. She's a good teacher.&like; a lot of other teachers, she isn't perfect. She's had bad days and had trouble controlling the class (which is honestly her only bad quality), but she's helped me grow as a student. I think she can be a little too lenient on her kids, but it's because she wants them to succeed. I've definitely learned a lot from her over the years. oh also the statesman looks awesome now (;

She's a really nice person, regardless of what other people say. And yeah, she can be hard, but only because she expects you to use your full potential. She wouldn't be a teacher if she didn't expect your best, newsflash, it's what they do. I'm really glad I got to know her in school, she one of my favorite people in this school.

Mrs. Beres is one of the best teachers in the school. She actually cares about her subject. Yeah it's hard, you might have to actually STUDY, but the class before you and the class before you got through it. I even heard the tests had to be dumbed down for this year's honors 10, hah. And, she does NOT preach about her religion, she teaches about whats in the book. Get over it and stop whining

Mrs. Beres is not only an interesting teacher, but also an interesting person. She has a great ammount of passion for literature and really tries to engage her classes in discussion. Some say that her class is difficult, but I think that is because people are not used to learning past the surface. Few teachers try to get their students to really understand the material like she; her class is more than just grammar and parts of speech. I am very glad that I elected to take her class.
