She can be obnoxious at times and loves to vent about EVERYTHING! But, she has been the best teacher I've ever had. I'm in her honors class and she has taught me so much this year. I couldn't thank her enough. She can be rude at times to you but if you can get past that then you will appreciate her class. I don't know what I will do next year when I don't have her anymore! She genuinely cares about her job,students, and wants them to learn (except the kids she doesn't like) Thank you Miss. H!

she has a very unique personality. most of the time in a good way, but sometimes not so much. she's definetely not boring, and can teach you a lot. don't get on her bad side unless you want to suffer.

Ms. H seems to prefer screaming to actually teaching. She won't allow the kids that know the answers to answer, even if no one else knows it.
