She never knows what she is talking about and when you ask her question she has to think about it for 5 seconds, answer, and change her mind with a new answer. She makes all the desks in one big circle which I highly dislike. Her tests are easy because she lets you use all the notes, and the answers I literally transferred from your notes to the paper. AND THE GRADEBOOK! She makes most of your work "not included in your final grade", and when she grades she asks you what you think deserve. UGH!

I think Ms. Bishop was nicer last semester. She now grades us on our participation in class, which I dislike a lot, because I am now being forced to talk in class. I know she's trying to get everyone involved in the conversation, but I still dislike this idea and how it works out. If she's really going to grade us like that, she should not let people volunteer, because people who are shy to talk in class, will never raise their hands, thus they will never get those participation points.

Honestly, I think that everyone who has given Ms. Bishop a bad review just doesn't get what she's trying to do. She teaches more humanitarian ideas then English. If you want to enjoy your time in her class, you have to join in the discussions and you have to be open to sharing your opinions and ideas. Also, the Ted Talks aren't that bad. Honestly, just talk about anything you're passionate about and you'll get a good score.

She has no idea what she is doing, and is probably the worst teacher you could probably get at Arcadia High. She continually gets lost and sidetracked in class and is not at all helpful when it comes to writing your college essay. She occasionally singles students out and does not pay attention to their needs, creating an unhealthy learning environment does not support or nurture any form of acceptance.

She's not a bad teacher but she doesn't know what she's doing. She changes her plans all the time and she doesn't understand the grading system. Your grade could go from 0 to 100

Very confusing in what she wants, she changes the assignment a lot and is very confusing. I don't think this class is helping me at all, just wasting most of my time. The "quizes" on books we read are based on a lot of facts, but if you study you can pass them. Make sure you do though because she hardly puts any grades in.

she makes you do a lot of work, regardless of whether you're in regular or AP. your grade is never secure in the class. i dont know how her weighting works, but bombing 1 essay can drop your grade by as much as 2 letters, yet acing one barely has any effect on raising it. all in all, tough class, a lot of work, but she is a good teacher. youll definitely be better prepped for state testing than others

Sometimes, she doesn't even know what she's talking about. She's really unfair, she seems to give people who she likes good grades on essay. People are always confused on what to do because she doesn't explain clearly. Not a good english teacher. If you do bad on ONE essay, your grade drop 10%. what is this... good luck to you if you get her because you will need it.

She is the worst teacher i have by far EVER had.....i swear, she cannot teach. She loses her train of thought, fine, but for some reason, when she puts grades in, she can mess up on that too. How can someone press the wrong button all the time? An also, how could you not notice that one of your students has 200% as their grade? Worst teacher i have ever had.She's also never prepared, and absent from school 2 times at least, per week.

Honestly, I feel like I'm in kindergarten. Yes, she would make an excellent elementary school teacher, but not high school. She needs to get her stuff in order if she expects to keep her job, because honestly, Arcadia is supposed to be one of the top schools in the nation, and she just isn't living up to those standards.
