Mrs. Klein is one of the most memorable people I have come across in my life. It is unusual to find a person with such passion for life and such a boldness. She is an inspiration. Her class is a delight and does not feel like work for a minute. Attendance questions rule. She is one of the only teachers that I missed upon graduating.
Mrs. Klein was an exceptional teacher. After I graduated, I went into Sciences, which I feel a lot of Mac students are encouraged to do. I couldn't decide what I wanted to do, and took a few years off from school. By chance, I ran into her when I was serving at a banquet, and chatting with her for a few minutes reminded me of my passion for english and writing. It inspired me to go back and get a degree in Communications. I respect her creativity and boldness immensely.
She needs to put aside her ego if she ever wants to be a good teacher. If ego isn't her problem then she needs to fix whatever else is causing her closed mindedness so that she is a teacher to all of her students (not just the ones who validate her ego)
The attendance questions are awesome! Class is really laid back, and she marks fairly. Be prepared though - she may offend you.
Great lady! You won't learn that much english, but it's a ton of fun to be in her class! Attendance questions are amazing. Just be warned, no topics are off limits in her class, and she has no shame.
love the attendance questions and the easy atmosphere of the class. had her 4 wrold lit and not english, which was a shame but shes a great person and great with deadlines.
Amazing teacher, she is very passionate about English. She makes going to her class exciting, she always has a lot of energy. And the attendance questions are just fun.
Mrs. Klein is simply amazing! She was the best english teacher I've ever had in high school. She teaches english with passion and it shows when you attend her class! And I loved going to her class. She's great!
I miss her classes terribly; they were highly entertaining and made English fun for me. Lively, funny, and opinionated teacher. Not afraid to speak her mind. She can be flexible if you're a good student, but don't try to push your luck. Best English teacher I've had in my life.
Wonderful, interesting, funny woman. Not a great teacher. Thats not entirly true, her class will teach you about life and about yourself... just not the material she's supposed to be teaching you. Taking world lit with her and having the IB paper deadlines looming, I have not found her very helpful or clear unlike Martino who make the requirements for our (social) IB very clear. I would recommend her for a frivolous class which won't matter when applying for university, like world lit.
She made me consider going into English. She is just that amazing. Intelligent, helpful, interesting, and probably the best teacher I've ever had. Made English my favorite subject. The biggest difference was that she treated us as equals and intellectuals, instead of buckets in which to dump knowledge. Best class ever, I'll be visiting her again. Rock on Mrs. Klein!
A delight to have my child come home and discuss topics taken in her class. Tough questions about humanity that have been pulled out of the literature studied-be prepared parents.
She is by far the best English teacher I've EVER HAD, hands down. She gets to know you personally and she gets you to know yourself. Mrs. Klein is one of the most passionate, caring teachers in the school. I recommend her to everyone!
I love her so much as a teacher and a person. She's so human, and isn't like a lot of the other teachers who just see you as another student. Being in her class has changed me for the better. You don't just learn about english, but you learn so much about life.Definately my favorite teacher of all time. I learned so much in her class, and she really cares about you.
After being gone for almost a week, I appreciated her return and bringing Shakespeare alive. Connects everything to real life-very human.
LOVE her! the best english teacher! Very helpful and makes class so enjoyable that its not boring!
Mrs. Klein was my favourite teacher!! I loved her English IB class, she would start it off with a question that everyone in the class had to answer... and one free skip day a year! yay!!
Mrs. Klein is outspoken to say the least. Her World Lit. class is much less stressful than world history. Any class with a discussion about the Wii is a good class.
I have her for world lit and now we're in world history and I miss her so much!! :( I used to look forward to every day I had her class.
oh mrs.klein. how i love attendance questions. ive learned so much this year from just,, talking the whole class. i loved your class.. but the ovaries-hanging-to-my-knees joke.. you painted quite a vivid picture every time you said it. so. maybe.. you shoudl retire it.
mrs. kliens about the best reason to attend mac high. she's right up there with the Caf. fries.
Mrs Klein is an awesome teacher! She is one of the teachers you must have at MAC. She actually got me interested in Jane Eyre. How amazing is that?
english 20 ib was soo fun and i absolutly loved the cirriculum and the way she teached it. however, her sayings tend to become redundant when you have her two years in a row. (she warned me it would happen but i didn't beleive her) nonetheless a great teacher, very interesting and teaches not only about english but also about life.
mrs. klein is the absolute rad-est english teacher ever. she's so amusing and class is a blast with her; she exhibits practically no inhibitions and that's awsome! WE LOVE YOU MRS. KLEIN =D
Wow. I can honestly say shes the best teacher I've ever had. Her classes go beyond the curriculum and really make you think about life (as cheesy as thats sounds!) Shes a bit of a hard marker, but thats Ok becuase it really challenged me to do better! Classes were really really fun (so is she!) and it seemed she genuinely cared about me! I really miss English 20IB!!!
covers more than just the superficial stuff - this woman knows her stuff. had her for eng 20 ib and eng 30 and by the end, she had totally given me confidence in my writing and a matured way of looking at life in general. not only does she make the material interesting, she makes it MEAN SOMETHING, which is more than i can say for my other teachers. one of the best teachers i've ever had; why she's not teaching in a university is beyond me.
I have to say, I broke down and rebuilt my philosophy about life several times in her classroom. And just when you nearly forget you're in an English class, she'll quote Shakespeare verbatim. I thought maybe she was any easy marker, but the diplomas proved her right. I will miss her. A great deal.
One of the most caring and nurturing teachers I've ever had. She inspired me to write and express myself to my fullest potential. Not to mention she's hilarious!
Mrs. Klein is the best!! she's really into wut she's doing and she lives for the written word!
Assignments difficult, but interesting and she is always willing to help you in the 'biliotech'or let you re-do assignments until you get it right-marking is pretty fair
An okay teacher but can't say her way of teaching prepared me for the IB exams or college english courses. A little less drama, a little more substance.
Mrs Klein's Awesome, you don't feel your in class but you are and she makes me english30 fun :)
She definately knows her stuff and she teaches in a fun way.Her attendance questions have actually made me realize thing about myself I never knew.
the coolest eng. teacher..knows her stuff with a passion, a fair marker & fun to learn from ..just be prepared in cases where she may ruin ur ideals..
She's fun. She seems to know her suff, but I don't know how much I've learnt, she's a little vague about things at times.
Quit with the french and shakespearean SAYINGS! Love them attendance questions!
what can i say, shes the best, with her attd q's and the list of things she has ruin, its plain fun, bk 00 isnt bad when your being in her class.
not just book smart. attendance qs make us think and get to kno each other better. class IS interesting, not like eng. last yr.
She is the best english teacher I have ever had. It's so great when you get a teacher that loves their subject. Don't stop the attendance questions!
Hilarious and fun! It's so much fun in her class it seems like were not learning. The attendance question is always the highlight of my morning.
Your the best teacher, class is actually fun with you.
a brilliant woman, classes are always so enlightening and great fun at the same time, especially the attendance questions. don't ever stop doing them!
Mrs klein is a wonderful teacher..not only does she teach u about literature, she teaches u about life. I've learn alot:) the classes are a ton of fun also
Mrs. Klein is an awesome teacher. She's passionate and has great knowledge of her subject area.
