Because she's been teaching so long, she knows what she's doing. She's my homeroom teacher and we always get donuts and jellybeans when our forms are handed in on time.

Very clear on what is expected, and follows through on her expectations . Marks fair, not afraid to give low marks should products be lacking in quality and not hesitant on giving high marks if products deserve it. Assignments are interesting and teach students the curriculum in a way that gets them engaged and passionate in the subject. Most obviously cares for her students' success, is very encouraging of students that have personal issues and will give advice on how to overcome problems.

By far one of the best teachers I've ever had. Very organized, always has a plan for whats next. Her assignments are creative and fun, it is easy to get 100% on most of them as long as you pay attention and do whats required. Cares about us kids.

Although she is good at teaching, she has no sympathy for students who aren't at the level she wanted them to start at. Over all she is good and would be a great to have as a teacher. Beware, do NOT get behind ever, ever! (unless you are an otherwise perfect student.)

Fairly nice teacher. She's great at teaching but she is a fairly harsh marker and has a nice and unique sense of humor. I would rather have Mrs.Birss than a bad teacher who marks easily.
