Individuals here who claim she "played favorites" or that she was "too hard" simply wanted something for nothing. I struggled with English and that woman stayed day after day trying to help me. She treated everyone fairly.

The reviews on her are obviously quite mixed and all probably correct to some extent. She was both the best and worst teacher I ever had. You will not find anyone as insightful, passionate, and well read as her (especially nowadays), but she had a quick temper, played obvious favourites, and was very black and white. She was great at pushing someone just teetering on the edge of becoming a great student, was fabulous for those that easily excelled, but had a real lack of empathy for many.

Sandy Birce was brilliant, demanding and inspirational. She set the bar high and kicked students' proverbial butts over. There should be more teachers like her- a classroom in which you actually had to DO something! I was so very fortunate to have had her as a teacher.

I'm a former student of B and I can promise you that though she is tough, you will learn more from her than any other teacher. She expects a lot w/ good reason.

Mrs. Birce totally rocks the casbah unless you get on her bad side, in which case you should run for cover. She is, by far, the most helpful teacher at THSS.
