Horrible experience! On the surface, she looks like a hard working teacher, but all she cares about herself and wining the band festival...

Throughout my 3 years at Branton she left a great impression on me, both in learning music and life in general. I was glad to have a great teacher in my life every other day for 3 years.

She's really nice is you treat her with respect and she doesn't pick on you if you make a mistake as long as you behave well and she's super funny.

Mrs. Baird is a great teacher to have if you are willing to put in the effort to succeed in band. She has high standards regarding student behavior, but it seems fair. If you treat her with respect, you'll be okay. She can be pretty funny, and she explains theory rather well. She wants students to do well. I look forward to band class when I have it that day.

Mrs.Baird is super nice and is really sweet to you! But I didn't like her band class. She expects you to practice every night and gives you a really hard times if you don't, cause trust me she will find out. And also she bases band more off the music festival competition than learning how to play your instrument. She can get really stressed and angry too.

Let me just tell you I was in her band class all throughout my junior high years and she made quite a good impression on me. Even several years later I still remember how kind, fun, and involving she was with all of my classmates and myself.

I hate her. She freaks out over nothing and she always gets mad, and lets it out on her students. She made me hate band, and I will never take it again because of her. She ruined a lot for me and now she makes me want to leave the school even more than I already do. I do not recommend taking band, ever.

Oh how I love Ms Baird! A lot of students think she is too strict, but in reality they're jut lazy, she gives lots of time to do assignments and practice for play tests, it's entirely fair. I've always loved music and I love it even more now that she's broadened my ability so much!

Band and Jazz band were probably among my best experiences in Jr. High. Ms. Baird was a fantastic teacher and to say I learned a great deal from her would be an understatement. I'm currently a principle horn in a University Orchestra and I have her to thank in part for it.
