In no way helpful. Her work is too hard, she doesn't explain things well and vlames it on the students. Has a failing system of "study buddies." That is really useless. Forces many projects on her students that no one is able to do. Worst teacher i had class with.

she is such a mean teacher,she barely gives us time to do our work,she moves you even though you're not affecting anybody.She always uses the same excuses,use your projection,take initiative,even though you are clearly doing so.She isn't committed to her job,you can tell because she takes test off the internet.She doesn't show hate towards you that much in class but she does so by the way she gives us homework .I honestly hate having class with her.

HORRIBLE. As one of her drama students, i have noticed her picking favourites since the first day of school. If you are not one of her favourites you will barely pass her class. If you are willing to suck up then you are fine but i am not willing to do that. She will drone on about wasting time but then she will discuss this for 20-30 minutes. Also FOCUS is her favourite word, I find this very hard as i have attention problems. . If you can switch out DO IT

Worst teacher I have ever had. So far, every time we have had a class discuision she felt the need to interrupt me. The worst times (and I believe the ones that best discribe her as a teacher) say at least one positive comment for every negitive comment. This makes sense but, the next time we had a discusion I made a comment "well I liked this but" and she cut me off to say "try to shorten your comments because my time is valuable." if your time is too valuable to teach then don't teach.

Horrible teacher. I found her to be a rude, and not very understanding of students. She truly needs to understand that students have busy lives and other classes that need to be attended to.

She doesn't understand her students. We students don't ONLY have English class, we don't ONLY have English homework, so she should try to create less of a workload for us. The books (excluding Macbeth

Her problem is that she should be teaching university, not high school.She's one of the nicest teachers there is, but it's too bad she rubs people the wrong way

she can be really caring, but she is definitely a way better drama teacher then english. expects us to do something but doesn't tell us how to do it. and should really learn that we have a life and that like 20hrs of hw a night is not possible!
