She's super nice and easy-going. She gives extra credit questions on every test which r usually just something like "draw a scene from the book" and they're basically free points. She'll also curve the test if the majority of the class does bad. She accepts homeworks like a month late with no point deductions. Just participate in her class and read and ull do great in her class. I helped her organize her stuff 9th period (after class) every day and she is honestly super nice and chill.

She's so sweet and so cute. She barely gives any work and it's usually reading. We do a lot of group work too. PARTICIPATE A LOT.

Zipper may be one of my favorite teachers here at Tech, she cares about her students and is extremely nice. She made long tedious reading assignments actually interesting and the class itself wasn't a bore. Her tests and homework's are fair. Feel lucky if your in her class, don't take her for granted! If you actually participate and in class, you'll actually learn a lot by the end of the year.

Ms. Zipper made me hate english. She was consistently unhelpful, her aims and do nows were gramatically incorrect and she gave us tests that lasted too long. The homework was incredibly easy but amateur,I felt likeI was in elementary school again. She waited to give me writing advice until the last day of school. I made sure not to sign up for Love, Life and Death to be sure not to have her again.

really nice and easy to talk to, great personality, beautiful singer. downside is hw writing everyday, which gets very tedious and annoying.they are graded too so write well!!! class avg is based on hw grades and tests and PARTICIPATION. tests are easy if u sparknote. not participating will bring your deserve 95 to a disappointing 85. the same amount of effort i put in this class to get a 90 would prob get me a 100 in other english classes. willin to help u pass if u show tht u care

Used to scare the crap out of me in the first semester, but she is actually mad cool. The spanish, i onlydont like it because i cannot understand it, if it was russian, i wud be all for it. Overall, the class is fun. She tells you not to use sparknotes, but they always have everything you will need for the tests. too many pop quizes.

ms zipper can be really nice, but she will never remember your name unless you are one of her favorites, chewing gum or talking during class. She needs to stop trying to speak spanish. I thought this was English class? But I did learn a lot in her class and I am a better reader because of it :)

Very fair grader. Her class is easy and sort of fun yet very boring. She will grade you based on homework and tests. Moody sometimes. Gets distracted very,very,very easily.

Honestly, speaking from personal experience, Miss Zipper is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, teacher at the school. She is my inspiration to become an English Teacher. Her and Mr. Silverman.
