Really smart teacher and relatively normal class in terms of difficulty. She tries to be really organized but sometimes schedules slipped. I wish it was easier to approach her. I took AP.

She's actually a really good teacher and pretty cool. She's kind of quirky but it's funny. She prepares people for university life.

Her class is a complete waste of time. You think you're learning lit and comp until you actually have a lit and comp teacher that teaches. It's horrific; she shouldn't be teaching. MrRoberts, teachAP!

One of the best English teachers. She might be a bit weird at times and goes off topic a lot, but I learned a lot in her class. I also got good marks and I'm not very good at English!

Ms.C is very passionate about what she does best: literature. Though.. she does tend to get off topic and you are sometimes felt as though a class was wasted. ASK YOUR QUESTIONS!!

Seems like she just talks and doesn't teach,but you'll discover how much you've actually learned. Note: get on her good side, because it sucks to be on the other side of that bias

Makes class fun, may not teach alot of technical things, but plenty about the more abstract aspects, and undertsanding of english. Approachable yet authoritative.
