She is one of the most amazing teachers I will ever have. She makes you want to strive better to be a better writer! She is very intimidating though, I adore and respect her very much. She has taught me a lot and I'm really sad to not have her as a teacher anymore :/
Yes, she may be intimidating but that only pushes you to work harder. Her class is amazing and she is definitely one of a kind. I have the utmost respect for her.
good teacher and a great personality (if u like shopping), but test questions can sometimes be confusing and the answer is her opinion, even though another answer could be correct
She is the greatest English teacher ever. Junior year is a lot of work, but take her senior year because it is worth it and it makes college english way easier.
penny is a great teacher. i have learned a lot from her. yeah she is hard and in a lot of ways intimidating but she knows what she is doing and is passionate about it!
Beats you over the head with grammar, but really funny, I've learned a lot. If you don't like Thoreau and Emerson, don't talk at all 2nd quarter, just don't.
challenging class with lots of work. awesome prep for college though. she'll teach writing process, strategies, and how to have fun!
i love penny. she has the coolest shoes and clothes. she is passionate about her subject she is a great teacher and really cares.she is hilarious u learn tons
Her class is so much work. She's very outgoing and tries her best to help everyone. I feel like I am totally prepared for college.
She'll drive you nuts, but you learn a lot in the process. Worth the pain
Mrs. Yurkew is the best English teacher at Boylan. She knows how to push her students and she makes us learn.
Way too caught up in herself...her jewelry...her shoes...does she realize how big of ditz she comes across as? She'll teach you a lot of stuff tho.
