Extremely knowledgeable music teacher. Always rooting for the good guy and the underdog. It's definitely worth being in her music class, you will learn a LOT.
I was lucky and happy to have her this year. Looking forward to another great year. =D
If you work hard and get good grades she will like you. Slackers get the evil side of her!
She definitely knows what she's doing, but she doesn't treat the students properly.
She should stay a music teacher... not a V.P. She is a great music teacher. M.
Strict, but not unreasonable. As long as you take her class seriously, she will be behind you all the way.
unpleasant, unfair, and super-critical. She only likes kids who are just like her, but she is mean to everybody else.
She deserves credit for teaching hundereds of kids and having kids of her own too. To say that she doesn't understand students is a total misunderstanding. I'm always on her good side because i'm simply just listening in class and responding positively to her actions.
She can make music cool or she can make it hell. All too often, it is hell.
Mrs. Houghton is a fantastic and passionate teacher and person. However, it is true that she does play favourites (but it's not bad when you're one of them). I've really enjoyed being her student.
houghton is a very strong music teacher because she is competitive (with other schools), but lacks the people-skills to teach anything else effectively. she is a good conductor, demonstrates a wide array of knowledge, but plays favourites and perhaps marks unfairly.
Mrs. Houghton is an amazing teacher who respects students that work hard, like any other teacher. She is very intelligent in her field and deserves way more respect than this stupid site is giving her. Some people are so rude.
I guess all I could say about Ms. Houghton was that I had her for four years and she never had the time of day for me. Ten years later I've taught myself how to play three instruments and can't thank her for anything I know or can do musically.
She only likes the best players. Anyone struggling gets left behind and faces her cruel and unforgiving wrath...
Doesn't see any other subject or sport as important as music or let you be "well-rounded". I love music, but I love other subjects and sports equally as well. She doen't get it.
I found her voice annoying at first, but you get used to it like you do anything else. I've found that almost every time she's been right about how people have been doing.
At the beginning of the year, I thought she was kind of mean and grouchy but once i got to know her better, she is kinda nice.
she's an okay teacher...i don't like choir and i didn't chose vocals but it's okay...her voice is sota weird but nonetheless a good teacher!
No mr. Folkes, average teacher, but wonderful musician! Sometimes repetitive and boring, but a great person nonetheless. Very helpful and knowledgeable./.
She scares me. and she probably dislikes me because choir isn't my top priority.
Even though she makes fun of us theoretically-challenged guitar folk', she's a great teacher.
She taught me for 5 years, and I'll never forget everything I learned from her!
Didn't like her much at first but got used to her and now I think shes great.
-extremely passionate about music... no compassion for anything else (inc. other subjects and clubs/teans/activities)
