tells you what she wants for the essay, gives you clear notes, easy marker and for the journal just make it look really good because at the end she only looks at your effort and not every entry.

Nice person, "old school" (which I like), easy marker, considerable amount of homework but she's pretty reasonable about it, and somehow makes classes interesting. Btw, attendance IS sometimes taken.

Ms. Ponomarenko has a great reading voice; she is sweet, and by that I mean she cares about her students and speaks to us like her own children! This class had a heavy workload, but if you keep on top of your journals, you won't feel overwhelmed. She is very knowledgeable, and was very interested in me being the same nationality as her...I felt a bit taken aback! Anyways, you won't regret taking her as your english teacher!

There are three words to describe her: amazing, brilliant, and kind. You won't regret taking her. She gives lots of work but at the end of the semester it gets slower. There is no on like her. I never had a course by anyone like her. I loved her.

This woman is a bit nuts, but she's pretty nice. She has a very nice reading voice for poetry. She gives a substantial work load, and has certain expectations about writing skills. I think she speaks something like 8 languages. She knows what she's talking about, and explains everything very well. Don't tell that you don't like keats though...I made that mistake.

Fran is a VERY good teacher who listens and is ALWAYS willing to help her if you go see her. The class is very hard especially if you don't like romanticism, but none the less, she's a very good teacher who is very fair

She is a wonderful teacher. All those that have given her a bad rating are lazy students who want points for doing nothing.If u guys are looking for a good grade without doing any work well shes not the teacher. She wont give out pts for free but if u try she will.Compared to the other english teachers out there shes is the BEST!!
