She treats her students very unfairly and she is racist. She chooses favourites and has made students cry. She also lied about people failing their class and tries to fail students.

She's one of those teachers who is very nice and explains the work clearly. Near the end of each term, she would drop a ton of homework and projects that she didn't give out earlier. She also favours students a lot.

Throughout the five years, she is my favourite teacher ever. Understandably she has her favourites, but I don't think she treats her other students unfairly. Had her in English 11 and we had this amazing scrapbook project, best project I ever did.

Nice overall, but doesn't seem to try too hard to connect with all of her students. She needs to explain homework and assignments more clearly.. doesn't teach much. Gives us (and herself) way too much

She talks about her boring books all the time, when even I don't really care. And she gives me an impression of bring a teacher who's there for the pay, not to teach students genuinely.
