Mrs. Stafford is a great teacher who works with her students to really prepare them for the AP exam and college. She's quite knowledgeable and while her grading may seem harsh, in the end, it's all to better her students. I was never the best writer in her class, nor one of the top students, but I saw a lot of improvement with my writing abilities.
Mrs. Stafford is by far one of the worst teachers I've had. I say "one of" because all of the other teachers I have disliked are the ones who have no idea what they are talking about and clearly don't care. She is fairly intelligent and seems to care, but is one of the most condescending and unprofessional teachers I've ever had the horror of meeting. People say she's dry, and take this coming from a dry person, she's not. She is rude and repeats the same nonsense everyday. Have fun...
Ms. Stafford's class is the most time-intensive class at Hamilton, but my writing has improved SO MUCH from her class. She will prepare you so well for the AP test and for college courses that require writing.
very clear but the class is very difficult to get an A in due to her harshness of grading on major assignments.
Pretty easy class. I don't like writing at all, but I got As on all of Stafford's essays and timed writings. Honestly,the class is easy if you do what you're supposed to do and go a little bit above and beyond on the essays.
The class is very demanding, but I have grown so much as a writer because of it.
Overall, she is a fairly tough teacher, but always more than willing to help. Yes, there is more than enough homework, but its one of the hardest classes at Hamilton for a reason.
She either likes you or speaks to you in a condescending tone. She plays favorites. Gives unlimited hw. She's ALWAYS right. Very nice outside of class
SHE IS SO MEAN..sometimes. You can get through her class. Definitely take this class if you hate to sleep. Shen thinks it is the only ap class that you have and will make you WORK REALLY HARD.
She's a good teacher, but she gives an overwhelming amount of work and projects, especially towards the end of the year. She gives so many projects when students are trying to study for their AP tests
A very intelligent teacher who will help your writing very much. She is VERY reserved but has quite a lot of wit underneath her professional facade.
During class she's serious business, but outside of class she's actually a really nice person. In terms of teaching - the class is HARD, but don't let the difficulty deter you - you'll learn a lot.
Before I had her class, I didn't enjoy English much. Mrs. Stafford is a great teacher, and she's humorous when she wants to be.
she is a really good teacher, even if she may be the female version of ben stein. i had a good time in her class, and she did help me prepare for college
She is an awful example of arrogance running rampant at hamilton... she doesn't even begin to compare to the AP english teachers at Chandler High.
She's a brain! don't let her dryness turn you off, she is a great teacher.
