She is harsh on the kids and demands the best from them. She pushed them to strive for more than they think they are capable of and that is something very rare in the school system.

she has issues. she picks favorites all the time and ignores the other kids. she's under the impression that we take orchestra b/c we like her and that she has the right to throw tantrums 4 no reason.

Honestly, I really don't like her. She plays favorites all the time, she's unfair, shes really mean, really bipolar, and just not a great person to be around. I don't like school orchestra b/c of her.

Orchestra is not the only subject the kids take...demands are sometimes unreasonable. "Only practice on the days you eat".
