Good teacher. I learned quite a bit from Ms. Kolson, all of her discussions and lectures make you think. The things that are bad about her though is that she gets cranky, and is a very hard marker.

She's the most frightening teacher there is. She's also got the most attitude ever. She's just a mean-girl-with-authority who isn't above insulting her students just for kicks.

I’ve never had her for English, but she’s an amazing Philosophy teacher. She enjoys her job, is opinionated to the extreme, and is a genuinely nice, accessible authority figure in Kits. (Can I get bonus marks for this?)

I love her opinions. The woman is amazing as a person, and her charisma amazes me. One of the only teachers that enjoys what she is doing, and tries to make her classes amusing. Knows a lot about various topics.

Thinks she's special... Really isn't. Think she's omniscient but contradicts herself all the time because of ignorance. Bad personality.. not a bad teacher tho.

Insane and opinionated. Word to the wise: just agree with her because if you don't, she'll just ramble on and you won't get a word in edgewise. Good for French
