She only likes people with good grades and who are smart. The rest she treats like trash.

You wonder why there are no more A.P sciences in HSES? Shirley is the answer. Funny how it is an environmental school yet there is no A.P. science left.

an incredibly strong woman, in whose presence one knows why she has been given this role, yet she stings like a scorpio, with the grandeur of a rattle snake

i think its true about her only caring about the schools reputation instead of the students. She should start caring about all the students instead of only 3.
