I loved Ms. Price. If you have her for AP Comp then don't worry to much. She is really nice and helps out a lot! Although she is a hard grader (and people often receive Bs on things other teachers would give A's on) it really helps you become a better writer. Good thing is though, you can return in everything as many times as you want, and your grade is really based upon your work outside of class, so if you revise everything you should be good for an A or A-. Only work habits cannot be revised.
I ended up getting a A in the first semester and a B in the second, seems like this is the case for most as the first semester of the course is easier then the second. Mrs. Price is an awesome AP Comp teacher, if you're afraid to take this class don't be, unless you don't do your WP assignments you will definitely get a B or better! I feel like I am a better writer, and am confident in my writing skills. This class prepares you for the ACT/SAT English and Writing sections better then anything!
I had her for AP Comp this year. I ended up getting an A in this first semester and a B in the second. Although this class was my first B in high school, I can honestly say it transformed my writing ability. I was a weak writing coming into AP Comp. Now, timed essay writing etc, have become a lot easier for me. If you are a weak writing and are scared to take this class, please don't be. There are a few slackers in the class, who don't do the WPs and have a C. Just do the HW and you will dofine
I think that Ms. Price is one of the most energetic, and smart teacher at this school. She knows what she is talking about she is very personable and is easy to talk to. She puts in a lot of effort into her teaching and will work hard to make time for you if you are struggling. She recognizes when someone is working hard and still struggling them and goes the extra mile to help them out because she truly appreciates the effort. She is a tough grader but if you work hard then you will thrive.
She is one of the best English teachers I've had. I took AP comp with her and she made me a better writer. She genuinely cares about all of her students, is fantastic at explaining things, and is a great writer. The class may be hard, but if you work hard and perform revisions (if necessary) it's passable, although I've yet to see someone get an A.
SHE IS BY FAR ONE OF THE BEST TEACHERS I HAVE HAD. She is encouraging, challenging, considerate and really cares about her students and their process. Her revision policy is almost year long giving students as much time as they want to revise and learn from their mistakes. She is the embodiment of a growth mindset and has always encouraged us to learn and improve. Our seminars are in-depth and helpful for the future. She was great through APCOMP and SURVEY and i only wish i had her for HAMLIT.
She is my favorite teacher at Mountain View and gave me the skills I need to succeed in regards to the humanities. She is kind, knowledgeable, and intuitive, one of, if not the most qualified, teacher I have had during my three years at Mountain View. She offers excellent support both in and out of the classroom.
Her grading was a really helpful tool to improve because you could revise just about anything (minus the tests) and the scoring guide was always there to show what exactly needed fixing. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have gotten a 5 on the AP Comp test without having her two years in a row to help me improve my writing.
Best English teacher I've ever had. She genuinely wants her students to succeed and is so accepting and open to all opinions.
By far the most inspired and inspiring English teacher I ever had... including the great many I had in college! Unlike so many run-of-the-mill teachers. She inspires me still! Rock on, Ms. Price!
She's the best English teacher I've ever had, college included.
She's cool but I think she hated me for a joke I made once..
A really good teacher so far, and being in her class is a lot of fun. She really knows what she's doing, and in that way leaves a lot of room for personality! A great English teacher!
her and mr kahl are tied for first as the most awesome english ever!!!!!
Ms. Price is awesome! Best English teacher ever. Period.
she's really nice.. i don't know what i got out of the class.. but i'm sure i got a lot... we messed around... you think that she doesn't have control of the class.. but she does.. she really really does.. shes awesome
She makes Journalism so much fun. Slips in so many jokes during her instructions. Lets students be very independent.
wonderful 95% of the time. the other five, dissapointing. afraid of risks maybe.
Ms. Price is one of those teachers who really wants you to do well. She is more difficult than other english teachers but it is worth it beacause you learn a lot more.
Gets more organized and effective every year. Deals with problems well, and accepts everyone. Also a veritable encyclopedia of English knowledge. Best I've had.
To counter "no control", she lets us do what we want instead of restraining ideas. Of course, Journalism and a normal English class are different.
Price is so funny that I think most of her students dont get her jokes.
Very fun. An NPR junkie, but that's a plus. Supportive of everyone.
Very smart woman... however, she often comes to class w/o a lesson plan.
