omg she is the worst teacher I have ever had. she assigns so much work that none of the other english classes have. if you are aiming to get over an 80 in her class forget it and switch out. She made my average drop from 90s in grade 10 to 60s in grade 11.

In previous grades, I was a 90s student in English. In her class, I was lucky if I got above 65% in anything. She is the worst teacher in Mentor. She is more of the Public school caliber where the teachers don't care about their students.

OMG - my parents pay so much money for me to go to Mentor and I get stuck with an awful teacher like her. She picks 3 or 4 favorites - the rest of us in the class are treated horribly. If you are not on her favorites list, don't expect to get more than a 70 in the course. She needs to retire and get out of Mentor

The best English teacher i've had by far. She provided great insight into everything we studied, and has really prepared people for university. Tough yet fair.

I like her as a person. I think she knows what she's doing in English and is probably one of the better English teachers. That said, she advocates a VERY strict writing style, and if you don't catch on you are dead in the water. If you didn't take her earlier grade classes, it'll get you for sure.

You always know they're an excellent teacher when hundreds of former students come to visit them from university. She's funny, keeps the class interested, and really great. BUT, if you have trouble recording due dates or you NEED written notes, switch out of her class. She's not your teaching style.

A very smart lady, you would think she went to Harvard or something. I think the whole class was suprised when she said she went to Trent. She is one of the only teachers that know how to teach ENG.

By far the best teacher I ever had in my 10 years at Mentor. She is not an easy marker, but if you follow her clear directions, participate in class and make an effort, she will go the distance for you. Awesome teacher!

She's funny, smart, a bit of a goof. She's the perfect english teacher. She will explain anything once to the utmost clarity, but pay attention. Cool.
