not a bad teacher, but i simply wasn't compatible with her. she also teaches a very tough class, be alert and pay attention. not particularly interesting.
she has such a funny sense of humor and our discussion classes were awesome. ap english with her was my favorite class ever! a great person.
She knows what she is there for: to teach, and that is exactly what she does. Forming good relationships with students is not her top priority, but it is impossible to forget everything about the class. Beneficial in the end.
In the end it's was helpful having her in 9th grade but the woman is so hard to relate to! It was HARD having her in class. You've got to work your butt off- and don't expect to be her friend.
I adored her. Her class wasn't as tough as people make it out to be - the workload is considerable, but intellectually isn't that hard to grasp. Best college prep = AP English. Great sense of humor, understanding.
While she can be pretty strict,she has a laidback side if you respect her. AP English has been THE most helpful class for college. It puts you leagues ahead of every other student.
OKAY HAVING PALMER FOR ENGLISH FRESHMAN YEAR WAS EXTREMELY HARD AND AT FIRST I HATED HER SO BAD BUT NOW THE YEAR HAS ENDED, I AM SO GLAD I HAD HER. SHE IS TRULY THE BEST TEACHER.
her only negative reviews must come from whiners. absolutely the best teacher at hoover. she definitely keeps egos in check, but prepares every one of her students for college.
I love sarcasm in teachers so I loved Ms. Palmer. Had her for French II and soon to have her in APE. She knows her information and is willing to help you if you'll do the work.
Very hard teacher, i hate her sarcasm! she never answers any questions you ask, she just goes around helping you the tiniest bit!
depends on the day, but mostly i just really don't care for her style of teaching... my bro loved her, so who knows? maybe she gets better?
evil as can be, very challenging, makes you makes u feel stupid. unfair grading, but will prepare you for the future.
She is very frustrating, especially her sarcasm. But she is a good teacher, I think. I just can't stand the negativity.
No teacher should be as sarcastic as Rita is in the classroom ~ It isn't helpful in the least and on many occasions, was very hurtful.
Man, was she tough. She was so demanding and sarcastic that sometimes I would want to cry. But you know what? I think I remember everything from 9th english.
confusing her students and causing mental breakdowns are her specialties
While you are taking a class from Ms. Palmer, you will absolutely hate it. However, her APE class helped me to prepare for college-level English. Recommended for those willing to do a lot of work.
you wont understand till you're in college how helpful ms. palmer is, esp w. ape
She's tough, but you'll learn a lot and she will make you laugh!
