Ruined my film and lit class...sucked life out of the class and nobody would discuss since we hated her mean grinch mode. No wonder she never has many students! Go away!
And listen to these guys. She's an amazing teacher. Yeah her class is hard but that's because she's actually teaching you.
Had to post this comment: Had her for Eng. 4 and she made us annotate everything! Went to a much better university than she ever attended this summer and, guess what: NO ANNOTATING in any classes. My Eng prof. said that went out years ago! Boo!
Ms. Ball has gotten a bad rap quite undesirably. Sure she my seem a bit course at first but once i decided to give her a chance she ended up being one of my favorite teachers.
People say that she is really sarcastic and strict and that is basically true, but it's not a bad thing. All she expects you to do is follow her rules and do your work. Once you do that she is really funny and takes jokes really well. In her AP english class she just gave everyone an A basically.
I took her for Film and lit, she gave us a ton of homework and made us annotate EVERYTHING. She's very smart and nice outside of class.
Just one question: why choose a career where you can make others miserable like you everyday? Lady, retire please! We hate you!
Ms. Ball is definitely one of the most down-to-earth instructors at Del Campo. Wonderful teacher.
She's an excellent teacher, my favorite at DC. Sure she's strict; but that strictness has a purpose. I have 2 teachers that are strict and I've learned NOTHING from. I've learned loads from her.
She is strict and expects you to do the work, but I think that is a fair expectation. You'll get along with her fine unless you're a slacker or somebody who is lazy and doesn't do their work. :P
I think she works hard but personality is absolute zero or even in the negative numbers. Why is she teaching? Who let her in? Someone help me escape!!!!
I had her as my English teacher once; I couldn't wait to be finished with that class.
Ms. Ball is a wonderful teacher. Don't mess around in class - or it won't be fun. She is a great person - I think my favorite teacher in high school.
Ms. Ball is my favorite teacher at DC. She is unbiased, and clear and concise. If you're looking for a period to slack off, though, don't sign up for her.
She's an intelligent person, however, her political opinions sometimes affect her teaching Decisions.
i have had this teacher in jr. high it was wierd to see her again
She really cares about the kids, and her lessons seem to actually teach you about the books.
