Ms. Toms was my 10th grade English teacher back in 1991 at LCHS. She taught me how to write. Now I write engineering proposals for $1billion project proposals. She stood up for me because I was different and had different opinions then others. One of the best teachers I have ever had.
Best English teacher! My son and daughter both loved her class. She knew how to teach.
Best English teacher and counselor I've ever had! She prepared me for college as my English teacher and then later helped me choose and apply to the right college. She helped with with my college app essays and wrote my letter of rec. Love her!
She really taught me how to write and she tough but fair and open-minded. You just had to be able to back up your opinions. I'm in college now and she was the best teacher I had in high school.
I think she's really helpful and wants me to do well.
i actually really liked her because she obviously pays attention to the students' feelings on things. She recognizes every student's style of learning and is willing to adjust things for their specific needs.
she tries really hard to be a good, fair, and fun teacher and i respect that
Too opinionated, fails to see your side of things, not open minded enough, and doesn't have a personality. She is too nice sometimes, I have never seen her not smiling, and therefore am not intimidated by her, thus, she does not have my respect.
Ms. Toms will seem a little nonchalant at first, but her class has proved to be one I look forward to. She teaches the standard analytical essay very well and prepares you for future years of solid writing. Her personality is a little weak, but her teaching is more than adequate.
she is so nice and tries really hard to please us... i mean, not every teacher plays enya and lets us have breaks to the vending machines!!!
She's mean...You have to conform and she'll go over you in a heartbeat and won't let you do anything about it. GRRRRRRRRR.
You're allowed one question because you don't think before you ask; she wants you to develop critical thinking skills. Bathroom passes are limited because you abused the privilege.
best teacher ever! its not that shes not open minded you probably cant articulate your thoughts well or just cant write at all. very fair and has cool stories! I LOVE MISS TOMS
Miss Toms is my idol- she's the best English teacher at this school. I learned a lot and had fun learning it. Miss Toms is very openminded- what is everyone complaining about?
If you listen to her she always says you don't have to agree with her thinking just back up your thoughts and be logical and organized
Hello? She ALWAYS accepts other opinions if you back them up. Don't whine because you didn't support your ideas and got a low grade. She's totaly openminded.
She's not at all clear about what she wants. She randomly deducts points from essays without giving clear reasons, other than deviation from her own opinions.
She always penalizes students who give interpretations contrary to her own. Literature has many interpretations; she needs to be more open-minded.
She's the best in the school. Hard but fair--bottom line. Doesn't give busy work or unfair assignments. Don't blame her if your lazy.
She's a great english teacher...if only the thermostat in her room would follow her good example...
I wrote about Janie's flaws in TEWWG and she grades me harsh. I confront her and she says "I graded you harsher because I didn't like your topic"she cant dothat
Best English teacher I've ever had. She has no problems accepting alternate interpretations- provided you have decent info to back it up. I love her!
dude i love ms toms. shes hilarious and is very open minded. her students learn to love her throughout the year.
Her class isn't hard... if she likes you. If not, then prepare to have a horrible time, because she'll be really harsh with your grade.
Miss Toms is cool. We like her. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes.
i am getting an F in the class. but i love her!!! shes honestly the coolest lady! talk to her. and she always has stuff for us to do, not busy work
whinyh people maybe need to spend more time fixing their bad writing instead of attacking miss toms.
She's the best teacher I've ever had. She's very open-minded and accepting. I've learned so much! And she's amusing.
She'll like you if you have a certain style of writing, but if not, even if you can write well, she just won't accept it, and you will have a miserable time.
Miss Toms is a great teacher and is always willing to help you if you have any trouble.
She doesn't even tell you what you're doing wrong, she just has issues with other people's styles and just can't accept that everyone's different.
Teaches us the basics of good writing so we can go on to other types and styles of writing.We get a really good foundation in her class.She allows rewrites.
She's the most open-minded teacher I have. She's always okay with alternate views and styles. What's up with the sour grapes?
Gah... plays favorites, isn't open to other's ideas and when you suggest something perfectly resonable, she might shoot you down if she doesn't appreiciate it
Ms. Toms is one of the nicest teachers I've ever had. The only people she doesn't seem to like are the students who constantly disrespect her and are rude.
toms is kewl! i'm so glad i had her last year cuz now I get it! my writing is waaaay better
OMG i love ms. toms! she is such a cool/goood teacher! i wish i had her this year too.. i hate english is horrible without you ms tomss!
Actually, I'm not bitter about a bad grade, I still got an A in her class. One of her problems is her really narrow view of what constitutes good writing.
i think shes cool. its so obvious people are bitter about a bad grade. She's tought sometimes but really nice, you just have to give her a chance
I was so glad when I got to college and discovered there are many teachers that are open-minded and accepting of other styles, unlike Sandy.
no dark sarcasm, in the classroom. hey!! teacher!! leave them kids alone!!
Miss Toms, Miss Toms what can I say about you? the answer is not much. Advice for future students-think inside the box.
She's cool...and she treats boys and girls the same. I've learned a lot about writing.
Miss toms is the greatest teacher, i had her for 9th and 10th grade and my essay writing really improved during that time
Miss Toms is really sweet and definitely not evil. She grades reasonably and is very understanding. We love you Miss Toms!!!
I had the best time in her english class! she's so nice!
Easy teacher, whatever you do NEVER EVER bad mouth the authors you read about in her class in front of her or your screwed
Yeah, she really strikes you as a person who has that inner evil going on, but she covers it with this saccharine attitude that is just painful.
a good english teacher...not great or bad...pretty decent
Evil?! She is the BEST teacher I've EVER had. Very nice & helpful. Eng1/2Hr are fun & interesting. Class discussion is excellent. Essays are graded fairly.
miss toms was an ok teacherand she was like the 2nd best out of all my teachers...she's nice and doesn't yell at u
Grades essays too strictly without explanation of why points were deducted, gives unclear interpretations of literature and doesn't embrace any alternative opinions
