Tish challenges students to be as good as they can be. She develops critical thinking skills to be used in all aspects of a child's life in a kind and compassionate manner. However, she's no pushover and if your child is looking for a cakewalk, this isn't it. Guess what? Getting 90%+ doesn't happen in the real world. Interacting with others, having critical thoughts, problem solving . . . THAT happens in the real world and Tish helps students master themselves as well as the subject.

I know everyone loves Ms. Silvers, but when you can't avoid bringing up that there might be an actual problem with her teaching/marking system, she can't take ANY criticism. She'll abuse her authority and force you to shut up while she gives a 20 minute lecture about her own life and completely irrelevant stuff. She's always smiley and seems really kind, but when the situation forces you to go beyond her superficial nice side, she's very unreasonable and actually quite arrogant.

Be prepared for a lot of home work and sometimes with very little warning, but if your okay with that, then it should be a very fun informative ride. I truly feel like my english got better in her class.

There isn't a rating for kindness, if there was she would be a five. Although knowledgeable and fun, Ms. Silvers if really bad at explaining things. I got a 97 in her class, which is good, but often kids do not even know when things are due and after listening to her explain assignments will have to stay after class to clarify. Often I would come after school to ask about homework and stand there talking to her for 10 minutes and leave still confused. Great person, mediocre teacher.

I'm one of the teachers who she has helped so much and taken so much cared of. When I was new and did not know anything it was her that was so nice to me and helped me out. Love you Tish.

Sucks if you are new to the language. Student who tend to do well in her classes have the initiative to ask for help AT THE RIGHT TIME (ie not classtime) She's nice and is always avaiable to help.
