At first she came off as a teacher who didn't want to be there, hated most students, etc. My first year with her (Junior year) that opinion changed quickly. She is one of the most interesting teachers I've have had. She encourages her students to write a journal entry every day and share the entries with the class. The part that amazes me about her the most is her ability to read fast, VERY fast. I remember a class where we went to the library and she read a book cover to cover in the hour.
