Terribly disorganized. She might come to class on time 2-3 times per week, sometimes not even showing up at all once a week. She is never in class, and then expects us to make everything up on the one day she actually is on time. She gives short notice for assignments. Sometimes she goes on tangents pushing political ideas that no one wants to hear. She is funny and has a lot of knowledge, she is just not a good teacher.
She says she immensely cares about her students but I'm not sure that's true. She never shows up to class and we don't learn anything. She tells entertaining stories and is pretty funny. She gives everyone an A in everything even if they didn't do an assignment. One time she graded everyone's group project on whether they turned it in on time or not.
BEST TEACHER OF ALL TIME. She will actually prepare you for life!!!! She tells you the best stories and really helps u write essays. BEST EVER>
I like pie because pie is very delicious. Also many people like pie.
Wowie! NEVER hd a teacher connected to ALL kids in our class The Mainwaring Nation rocks on and she is the best teacer ever
Mainwaring is one of my favorite teachers in Churchill. It's easy to get an A in her class!!! BE ON HER SIDE and you will be fine.
Too much fun in the Mainwaring nation. Impossible to cheat in her class but who would want to? So interesting and so clear. Best e teacher ever!!!!!!!!!!!11
Actually learned something for the first time ever in English. toooooo funny and I luv to come to class cuz of it. Took lots of time helping us all with our papers before the final versions were do. Taught me to believe in my opinions and write them in a way that makes me feel intelligent. Love this class.
Very cool, very clear. Took so much time to comment on our work online which made it easier to change what needed to change. So funny too
Very funny. Full of sardonic wit and opinionated remarks. Perhaps the best English teacher at this school. Her grading is occasionally vague, and her multiple choice questions are often ambiguous, but her teaching style apropos of essay-writing is top-notch. Definitely not your average teacher.
Unlike the other English teachers I've had over the years, Mainwaring has actually taught me how to write a decent essay. She challenges you to be creative and teaches you how to construct a good essay. She is also one of the funniest, craziest teachers I've had and she is very outspoken. The only bad thing is that she can give out way too much hom
"why was 6 afraid of 7? cause 7s black" she actually said this in class but shes so insane she becomes funny if you just stop thinking of her as a teacher and more of a tv show. if you have her, heres a tip: get on her good side early and you dont need to work for the rest of the semester because shes too lazy to read your stuff and she just assum
SHE IS INSANE... but she is soo much fun because of it. If your near an A, shell give it too you, but she wont make it easy on you. Great teacher
I had Ms. Mainwaring for 10th grade regular English, and she was incredible. Yes, it can be difficult in class, but that's probably because you're not paying attention. She teaches at a level she thinks is challenging for you, but not too hard. She's so funny, and since I'm good friends with her son, she treats me as a daughter she never had.
Not very organized and sometimes assignments were confusing but I must say, she is one of the funniest teachers I have ever had. She's a great lady with awesome stories and despite the complaints listed above, the class was enjoyable and I wish I had her this year :)
mainwaring is THE BEST english teacher ever, take it from me high school people im a Dean's List student in college. she runs a relatively relaxed class, but is STILL able to teach through all the material and concepts that the class needs to know and understand.
You have to be kidding me - She is not cool, and definetely not all right. She cares only about sitting up front, and doing as little work as possible. When was the last time you got an essay back that actually appeared to be read, and had some corrections - a disgrace to teaching!
you all don't know what your talking about. Mainwaring is such a cool and down-to-earth teacher, and I miss her, she was soo kind.
Even if you are not some great public speaker, pretend to be one. Or just get lucky enough to have her love you.
Ms. Mainwaring is really cool...a very good teacher. She expects a lot from kids but she also helps you geet there.
the other english 10 teachers are total biotches but this one's cool
This woman is very clear in what she says, but she is not very easy. she is willing to help only those students who she likes.
Very nice. Good Teacher. Don't criticize Lord of The Flies, though....
Get on her good side, and you will be rewarded. She's actually pretty fair if you respect her.
Too many assignments at one time, I know we are honors students but we have other classes too.
hey i got an A..only one too not real good if only one oerson gets an A in a regular class now is it
Very nice teacher and very helpful. I was bad in her class at first, but I started visiting her during lunch and after school to raise my grade.
if she likes u, you automatically have an A and she believes anything you say about any assignment.... if she doesnt like you, your in for a very hard year
She was a very nice lady. We would usually get sidetracked in that class. Either had almost no homework or had a ton of work. Very easy. Disorganized though.
