You will be glad you had Wendy as your instructor. I was fortunate to have good English teachers at CHS. Even though I was in honors and CP, I was prepared to pass the placement tests at Cal Poly Pomona. I was later a tutor at the writing center and became horrified at the many students who placed into the first level of remedial English because they either went to LAUSD or just didn't care to apply themselves.Keep in mind you must also pass the graduation writing test your jr yr in college.
Had her for AP English 12 and got a 3 on the AP exam. Absolutely loved her! She's passionate about her job, students, subject, and teaching. Definitely willing to pause class to clarify any confusion. Always there when you need her. Like a second mother. Immensely helped a lot of students improve their writing and prepare themselves for college. Lots of work and late nights with no sleep but definitely worth having a teacher like herself.
Mrs. Bartman, THEE Greatest Teacher at Chino HS! Al though she is very strict, she is the most knowledgeable, experienced, and respectable teacher on campus! I have never felt so prepared for college. I have read every book that she has assigned in college just in my freshman year. (Including some on her summer reading list). Her work load is a little more difficult, but she prepares you for college.
As an AP English student I can say Mrs.Bartman is one of the smartest teachers on campus. As long as you are mature enough to handle her class it won't be a problem. She is a fun teacher who loves her kids as long as they are respectable. She runs a hard class but that is what you ask for in AP. when it came to the AP test at the end of the years was more than prepared. I am more than thankful to this woman for everything she has taught me.
Mrs.Bartman was one of the best teachers I've ever had. Her classes did require alot of time and effort, but she was willing to help us in any way she can. She is very strict on attendance and on behavior in the class, but is very open and involving with the students. The work she gave taught everything we needed to know for tests and for basic English knowledge. She is very knowledgeable in the Shakespearean plays and other important English writings.
Shakespeare wasn't too bad, Macbeth was pretty bloody and Hamlet my favorite.The poetry was boring, but necessary for the AP test. She definitely knew her stuff, and was very helpful.We read Beowulf and House of the Spirits but what I'll always remember her for is Woman Warrior.Every essay, sorry Mrs. Bartman but it's true, I ranted and cursed. It wasn't too bad really was my fault...I left every essay till the night before it was due...College is so easy! Thank you Mrs. Bartman!!!!!!!!!!!
You read a lot in this class.During second semester she assigned ridiculously huge essays but as long as you don't procrastinate they are pretty easy. You learn to write huge amounts in a short time. This class was a welcome experience. It can be tough at times. She also covers everything needed for the AP test in a timely fashion and you get tons of practice for the essays. As long as you complete the work and pay attention you are practically guaranteed a passing AP score. I regret nothing.
She is mean teacher who only cares about the top students. She spends too much time on the phone. I heard that she is going to go to Don Lugo
This teacher is the best teacher in the world anyone who says else wise doesn't know what they're talking about
IF ITS NOT HER WAY ITS NO WAY.. she doesnt know when to not be rude. yea she a good teacher but were not as smart as her, stop making it so darn difficult to try and pass. she picks favorites NOT OK
All the people complaining about her are lame! Mrs. Bartman is one of the most amazing and inspirational teacher that I have ever had. Not only does she help in English, but in life situations as well
i love mrs bartman she is an amazing, caring, helpful teacher. those who say negative things about her are probably slackers and didnt get a good grade in her class because you actually have to work.
If you disagree with what she has to say, she will make the class a nightmare for you. Everyone is allowed free speech, but only hers is true and everyone else is wrong. The worst teacher I've had.
She is doing better since she came back from Chino Hills High. She has cut down on the phone time as well.
She is a great teacher. Most students are lazy and don't realize that she is trying to get them to think and actually use thier brain before it rots from the inside out.
She's mean and assignments are tough and demanding, but if you make it through her class, college will be a piece of cake.
she is an excellent and effective english teacher. Thank you
