She is a nice person, but a horrible teacher. I learned nothing at all in her class. She has no teaching skills and is extremely boring.

She is my favorite!!! I had her freshman year-and ever then she loved me. Her class was so much fun-she didn't just ramble like other teachers. Almost always smiled! :)

I had Ms. Brooks about ten years ago. Forgive the cliche, but her class helped make me who I am today. My first real intro to true intellectualism, philosophy, and art.

this lady is the best. she is kind and helpful. she makes you want to learn. she the perfect balance of nice and intimidating...so, you take her seriously and dont take advantage of her. you want to do well because she is so nice. i remember being so scared of the ss regent and how she called me the same day, after it had been marked, to tell me not to worry and congratulate me on doing so well. 3 thumbs up!

I had her 3 times, she is a GREAT teacher. She is kind and you walk away from her class way smarter than you were before. She's kind of an easy teacher, i guess it depends on the cycle and subject you have her for.
