I did not have her for AP, and I hear she's worse there, but I liked her. She spends most of honors english having discussions and telling stories that are all completely irrelevant but are more fun than the disheartening books we have to read 1st semester. In creative writing she's even better, since she seems to like it more. She's probably better for more artsy people than others, but since she doesnt get to much work in english its not too hard to do well. She's fun in general.
she told me to talk to a key and that it would talk to me back...that threw me off a little bit...the lesson learned...too much acid in the 70s
Goes off on uninteresting tangents. Very strict with students on her bad side, unbelievably nice and allowing with students she likes. Boring, but not horrible. Her AP class is hard, honors easy.
Starts class with comics, always loses things (and takes up class time in the process), but an okay teacher throughout.
she seems like she has a cause, but doesn't always live up to it (the whole 'numbers don't matter' philosphy she preaches but doesn't practice). though, she's clearly been through a lot. i respect her
Great teacher for AP English 11. Starts the class with comics each day. Can be a little bit closed minded. Best advice ever to new students: try and NOT obsess over grades, and try to accept her humor
Very funny, nice and cares a lot about the students and school. She's tough, but for all the good reasons. I'm a big fan and have loved having her.
I'm not sure where all the negative comments are coming from...The Buckster is a sweet lady and by far the easiest of the 3 AP teachers.
she's one of the nicest and most caring teachers i've ever had.i learned a lot from her and although she might have a hard time accepting other opinions, she's a great person.
A great english teacher, one of those teachers which you actually like, caring and nice. Good grader, great sense of humor. Has good advice
She seems a little closed-minded, but I had no trouble in her class. It was easy and she was a fair grader with straightforward direction. Don't eat in class! Tries for laughs a lot.
Even though she has a hard time accepting something contrary to her opinion, shes really caring and nice and a fair grader. shes alot better than michaels SOO much easier
fair grader and generally a reasonable person. You need to be near perfect to get an A. Her sense of humor so pathetic its almost funny. Almost being the key word: Nothing about her is funny.
I had her for honors my sophomore year and AP my junior year. She can be harsh, but if you take her advice and apply it, your writing will improve by leaps and bounds.
hates people in general. With that said...Good Luck! :)
So helpful. Always there if you need help. She's hard but fair.
Argumentative and irrational. Refuses to admit she is wrong.
caring and sweet, but not qualified to teach AP English.
Challenges those who cannot support their opinions - and they blame her.
Thinks she knows everything, DESPISES others opinions. Subjective Grader too
she does not have the skill to teach ap english~ she brings a bitter atmosphere
She respects only ideas that coincide with hers, i got on her bad side, oh mann
great woman. embraces creativity. strict w/ purpose. don't pas judgement.
Don't get on her bad side, as long as you do your part she will respect you.
Very diagreeable person. It's her way or no way at all.
Don't argue with her... If she says the sky is red she's right
a challenging yet inspiring teacher - hard work pays off in this class
Awesome lady once you have her 2 periods a day all year
a total bore, mean, and a horrible teacher, not qualified for AP
