She assigns a lot of work but she is helpful and very understanding. Probably one of the nicest teachers at BV. My only complaint is that her classroom is always cold :P

I love her, although she assigns a lot of English work it's great practice. Ms.Sly is so passionate about English and it makes you want to go to that class knowing you have a teacher so dedicated and in love with teaching. Ms.Sly is one of my favourites that I have ever had, and she is so helpful involving school issues and even personal. Thanks Ms.Sly!

Ms. Sly directed when direction was needed, encouraged when encouragement was needed and supported when support was needed. She made a positive difference in my life and in my future. I owe a lot to Ms. Sly.

All I have to say is: "it better be SLY DEEP!" Awesome teacher to have for English! She devotes her life to her English students, and she named her Scout I mean if that isn't devotion to english i don't know what is.

She shares her love of literature with her students and isn't afraid to discuss bigger issues. No question is a dumb question and she's patient. And she doesn't lie about the classwork time; we get it, but if we don't use it effectively, she moves on. That's part of the responsibility of being a student in her class.

I liked miss Sly, but she really overworked us to the max, and yes like everybody else she did not hand stuff back to us. Otherwise, she is a sweetie.
