I found Ms. Fitz's class unfortunately lacking in rigor. Much of this was due to the extreme emphasis on memorization, taking practice AP tests, and regurgitating literary terms. The few analyses performed in class were half-baked, and her essay grading rewarded a brutally formulaic approach to writing. To be honest, this class stunted my writing ability, and didn't emphasize the creativity of thought necessary to produce true work of literary merit I later learned in university.
mrs. fitz is one of my favorite teachers. she's endlessly kind and caring towards her students, and is so good at maintaining control over rowdier/ruder kids. she makes sure that her students are happy and she is always very open and accepting. she's so helpful and it's easy to talk to her and ask questions. plus she lets you eat in class!! i loved mrs. fitz and i really hope i have her class again in the future !! :)
Such a kind and amazing person! Her class is a ton of fun and she really makes your class feel like a family. Probably one of the best, if not the best teacher on campus. Her class is one of the easier Honors English 1 classes and there is a lot of extra credit opportunity. Great teacher as well. She genuinely cares about her students and calls us "lovelies". If you have Ms. Fitz you are extremely lucky!
The problem with this class is more so the class itself. The majority of the people in AP Lit is going into STEM and frankly this class does nothing to prepare them. The books will seem completely irrelevant and so will the class discussions. Who cares what the tree symbolizes? This is what happens when you leave AP students two options for Senior english. I would've much rather preferred a class that focused on writing effectively rather than analyzing literature. Fitz is great though so enjoy!
Susanne Fitzpatrick. She's a very sensible teacher, with a goofy yet graceful aura about her - better than you average "nice" teacher. During finals week, she bought lunch for many students that had 3 finals - from the goodness of her heart. She does teach, unlike other english teachers at this school, and is quite serious about it too. But the perfect honors english 1 and AP lit teacher. I mean I believe people take AP lit just to get her or Jelnick as a teacher.
I personally love Mrs. Fitz. I'm in her AP Lit class right now and she's incredibly knowledgable, but also relatable and easy to talk to. She genuinely cares about what you have to say, answers any/all of your questions, and helps you improve your writing significantly. Mrs. Fitz is hands down the best English teacher I have ever had.
she is a GREAT teacher. not very organized and her essays are kinda hard but otherwise so extremely great. incredibly nice and easily approachable unlike most of the teachers at UNI. someone should tell them to go to mrs. fitz for tutoring on how to care for your students
If Mrs.Fitz is not an Angel then Angels don’t exist. Her essays were kinda hard, but she has the best personality in the world. Nicest teacher ever, extremely caring and helping. Keeps food in the class in case students forget lunch. She is extremely approachable, interesting and humorous. Also tries her best to take stress off our shoulders and sometimes lets us vote on whether we want to do a homework a not.
LOVE HER! Nicest and most helpful teacher at UNI by far. Had her last year, and she was my fav teacher. Loves all her students. But- her essays are graded insanely hard. AMAZING teacher, you're lucky if you have her!
People love Ms. Fitz and I know why: she is such a wam, friendly,and funny person! But as a teacher she isn't that great. To be honest, she is disorganized and does not make her expecatations clear.
BEST TEACHER! essays can be hard, but she is fair SO SWEET I learned A LOT.
I think that she is sweet and approachable but not an easy grader
You do one thing wrong and then you get a B....and I've also read some really crappy A papers of hers
She is amazing...even though she is quite difficult with essay grading, she is still fair and will be happy to go over information during office hours or even lunch! She really knows how to relate to children and is extremely understanding. Also, her tests are fine, just know the overall jist..
Amazing. Nice, funny, gives food,polite, and you feel inclined to learn a lot. I have not met a single person who has had a bad experience with her. All in all, one of the best teachers at uni.
nicest teacher ever...gives out food in class, gives out apples, coffee, cookies, lets students eat, lets students buy snack during classtime, enthusiasitc fun class...however, she doesnt teach very well and her essays are graded hard. pay attention well, dont get distracted by the fun!
She is the nicest teacher at Uni, I love her!! she is so helpful and onen of the best teachers i've had. She makes everything interesting. She is always there to talk or help you out in any way she can. Mrs. Fitz is a great teacher! I have never met anyone that has had a bad thing to say about her.
i LOVE her! she's the nicest teacher ever. she RARELY yells unless you do something just plain moronic, assigns little to no homework, and when you walk into her room you just relax. she's an amazing TEACHER, too. <3 i love how she keeps granola bars and a wardrobe full of sweatshirts for us.
IT's almost impossible to fail her class unless you actually try to fail. She's nice and fair. The only drawback is having Mitchell in your house class
She is a great teacher and she listens to her students. Her class is calm and relaxing, but you still learn a multitude of information.
her class includes soo much "stuff" so when you get to like sophmore level english everything seems easy.
Without her as teacher, the class would be a DRAG.. She makes the class MUCH more interesting and FUN..
shes really nice and fair. calming class i must say haha
Mrs. Fitz is awesome. Most of the other teachers make me nervous, but she's like my comfort zone. She only says good things about people and demands that of her students as well. Great teacher
Fitz is the best class. She is a great teacher and is very nice. She is probably the best english teacher.
She is so nice and you can talk to her abut anything. Great teacher who loves English and genuinely cares abut her students. Knows each student as a person and I really look forward to her class.
The Fitz-meister is pure awesomeness. I had'r when I was a freshman, and now I'm a sophomore. Fitz is awesome. ALL HAIL EMPEROR HACELA!!!
My favorite teacher i have ever had. She is very helpful and understanding. Easy to talk to, aswell as easy to listen to. However Mrs. Putnam is making her class difficult to learn in because students are so enraged
She's a nice teacher who loves to teach! I love her!
AWESOME teacher you can totally say anything in class and she doesnt mind. ive had her join in on conversations. one of uni's finest
definitely the greatest teacher i've ever had shes so nice and lets you say anything in calss and it's so fun i hope you have her at some point

actually allowed me to enjoy english, very lenient, but fair. nice as can be.
Mrs fitz is the best. its not that hard.. but its b/c she is such a good teacher
