Honestly THE greatest teacher I have ever had. Mrs. Heckman taught freshman honors English last year at West Career and Technical Academy. She treated us like she treated her AP classes at Coronado, which, in my opinion, was a good thing; having someone believe you are truly capable of the workload was refreshing, especially when your other teachers treat you like a toddler. Sure, I had hours of homework every week (those dialectical journals), but I learned more than I ever would have expected.
Ms. Heckman is one of those teachers that you hate because she teaches a lot. Great teacher but her sarcasm can be sometimes really offensive and unnecessary. She's pretty much chill one on one and has great meaning behind her hard assignments and boy is there a lot of it. It's really not a difficult class unless you don't pay attention, ditch, or don't try your hardest. Very hard grader too.
Great teacher, if she likes you. Always plenty of time for work, if you dont procrastinate. Her essays are NOT college level. Writing an A essay in Heckman, gets you a C in college.
! have a research paper to write tonight!! but shes a good teacher. best english teacher i have ever had.
Her enthusiasm for the subject really rubs off on you. The most difficult class I have, but my favorite English class ever!
I have taken many a nap in Heckman's class, but not because it's boring, because I'm tired. Great teacher.
Heckman's class is most likely one of the most challenging I've ever experienced but from her influence, I am sincerely considering Enlgish as my major. That should say enough about her teaching.
Her enthusiasm for the topics keeps you intersted even if youre not an english fan
She was super nice and always was interested in students. She always wanted us to do our best and had an excellent teaching style. She was one of my favorite teachers in my four years at Coronado.
Best English class I've ever had! Her enthusiam about English literature kept me interested and sparked my enthusiam for learning more. Not too easy, but it's not at all difficult.
I've never had a teacher who loved the subject he/she was teaching more than her. Because she teaches with enthusiasm, I'm not bored in her class. How can't you like Ms Heckman?
Best English teacher ever! Her class is a lot of work, but she expalins things so clearly that it's easy. She also helps students when they ask for help! I love her!
She's awesome! A little strict, esp. in grading, but she's such a good teacher and I learned a ton in her class!
