the absolute worst teacher i had in high school. no regard for her student and frankly wouldn't be surprised to find out she has no heart. felt a complete lack of respect in her class.

She's nice, and jokes around in class sometimes. She can get a bit annoyed at times though, and it shows. I learned quite a bit about essays in her class and she's alright

Doesnt contruct her lessons well at all, just injects meaningless assignments and homework to fill time and have some means to grade students. In short, you will learn absolutely nothing and be bored out of your mind due to her lack of effort. Don't even get me started about her moodiness; doesn't know how to act professionally or personally because of her underlying emotions.

This is one the teachers who truly prepared me for university. I came into her class not knowing how to write a proper essay so she sat down with me and showed me step-by-step how to organize an essay. I have used that knowledge through my university career and thank her every time I succeed in my w

There are two things that are certain about Barnes. One, she can be quite unapproachable at times. Two, she can be very tough and demanding. But don't get me wrong, overall, I think she's an alright teacher when you get to know her better. But if there's another class, it would be better to switch.

Difficult marker, but only if you don't do the work and act stupid. Put in some effort, short that you are putting in effort. VERY funny. VERY sweet. VERY forgiving. She is truly amazing and kindhearted. I plan to study english and creative writing. if I am ever a teacher I hope to be as good as her

not really the best teacher, very strict, doesn't smile and laugh along with you. . . not very friendly overall. She makes you feel like she's annoyed when you ask her questions too much.
