People say she doesn't help? What type of help do you want? This is high school, she isn't gonna point to a word and tell you, "This is the answer". She really encouraged critical thinking and made me think deeper about my writing. She motivated me to pursue English as a major. She helped me become independent in my writing. Graduated from class of '09.

explains things clearly, but doesn't offer extra help. i don't get why her teaching is so different from other teachers in the department, and it is in a bad way, students don't learn as much

She's a cool teacher.. She gets me interested... But the class has to be a bit more active.. though, I think that it has more to do with the class than the teacher..

She puts too much weight on the very FEW assignments in class, which can be deadly. She's helpful, but not clear in answering questions...sometimes too vague.
