She was an alright band teacher. I noticed more of a condescending feeling from her once the transition was made from elementary to junior high.
She is very very strict
everyone hated her but she was actually a good teacher and you actually learn stuff from her
shes a very good teacher and knows her stuff and she may be strict but if you do your work and practice you ll benefit alot from her
ok teacher, funny last year when she said everyone was slacking off and just assuming they were going to get a b. So she said "Where do you think all the B's are coming from? The BEE hive!!" hahahahah
I wish I could express the respect and admiration I have for Ms James; she has the ability to enstall the drive and desire to achieve excellence from her students and gets it after seeing the Festival
She's an awsome teacher. She helps you, but if you don't do your homework WHAM
Wow... so many scales, but hey, she taught us awsomely
If yu can't take the heat, get out a da kitchen! Nails the fundamentals into your head, sets you up perfectly for rest of Jr. High band.
OMG! I hate Mrs. James, she is the worst teacher I have ever had, and a bad influence on everyone! She doesn't know how to teach, and she is the reason everyone quites Band!
Didn't like her one bit but I'll admit i was a much better player in gr. 7 than i was in gr. 8 or 9. Got A, tried pretty hard for it too.
I never had her the one time she sub'd for Mr.M. She used to say whatever she wanted to me. She's too opinionated. She shouldn't be teaching music, she should teach Philosophy.
Probably one of the worst band teachers i had..but i do feel bad because she had a tough job.
Mrs James is the absolute worst teacher of all time. this woman should not be in a school...ever!
She's an ok teacher. If you try, she's an easy grader... she looks at overall performace, not practice charts which is good. only problem is she has a laminated planning book:P
Well... Shes a really hard band teacher. but like when i first went to her band class i stunk. now im like getting an A in band so thanks a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!!!!
