Hands down, the best teacher I've ever had. She is smart, engaging, challenging , funny, and at times a very understanding and helpful friend. Miss Holes ain't your typical high school teacher. In all honesty, this woman belongs in the category of those teachers who "actually make a difference and give a damn". Pay attention, do all your work and on time, and read read read. If you do all these things, you might actually enjoy English- I know I now have an appreciation for it after her class!
Ms Holmes is a great teacher but she is strict when it comes to doing your work and turning it in on time. She is very knowledgeable. Has amusing stories and you have to talk to her and stay after sch
She is not that bad of a teacher. You have to work hard to pass her class. She is really cool though!
the best teacher I've ever had. She stretches your brain and makes you think in different ways. Yeah, her IB class is hard and takes a lot of effort, but it's completely worth it.
Expect a lot of hard homework. She acts like her class is the only one on your schedule. She can be a little bi polar n looses her patience. IB requires a lot of work but atleast she is knowledgable.
English 11 + IB English teacher = English 11 that is way too difficult and frustrating than what it should be. I'm so glad I'm almost done with that class. Ugh.
Down to earth and won't take garbage from anyone. Very nice if you are good, and helps with any questions you have. If you're not there to learn, don't think she'll help you out.
spelling hw is easy- the test is hard. you get only 4 questions- so if you get only ONE wrong- you have a 75 as your test grade- she does this-- which makes us REALLY study our vocab. she's nice- explains if you ask- is pretty patient. i feel she can favor the white preppy ppl sometimes- after all, majority work with her on the yearbook. she' funny- moderate hw- not too much- I was in her english 11 class. her voice lulled me to sleep. haha
This is the first English class I've had in a long time that didn't highly prioritize vocabulary. She isn't stupid, she knows what sites give the answers to vocab. assignments, and doesn't weight vocab. much. I don't think she is a tough grader, but maybe that's because it's only english 11 that i take and not IB. One thing I don't like about her is the whole "sink or swim on your own" attitude she has. She gets annoyed very easily, and rightfully so considering the majority of my class consists of idiots.
Ms. Holmes is a pretty cool teacher. But her tests are super hard. She always tends to give out a lot of homework. It usually takes me an hour to finish them per day. When she says read your book two or three times over, make sure you do it. You are not going to pass or do well in that class if you only skim through books.
awesome english teacher... yearbook is fun too. very awesome to have a teacher and a friend in one
she passes out IB work to non IB students but she will help alot if you get behind
so sweet! I'm so glad that I got her. I've had horrible english teachers in past years, and holmes is awesome
Ms. Holmes, your class was my favorite English class in my 4 years @ AHS, (including IB 2, which Im in now) ...especially after I started doing my work ;)
Yo this teacher is so cool. She understands students unlike the majority of the teachers at bammadale high school
she's soo understanding and i can't count how many times she's given me a break.
she's cool. a little stressed, maybe, but she does the whole yearbook, too.
