Mrs. Downes is perhaps the MOST coolest, harshest, best English teacher you will probably have! I loved her class so much, esp. the projects and Shakespearean reading. She grades harsh, there will be comments on your essays that will scream out 'this is your fault but you know you can do better'. It was my first time being in an english honors course and i was scared to death, but somehow Downes fixed it up so that i was no longer scared, and i felt more challenged than anything.

A very nice teacher, more subjective to individual writing styles than any other teacher I've had.

Absolutely wonderful woman. Really prepares you for the college experience. Though I haven't been back in 3 years, I enjoyed AP English immensely. The group projects were bad though. One person always gets stuck doing the work. 7 a.m. classes are bad
