English with Mrs Hodges is interesting, to say the least. You never know what you are going to experience when you walk into her classroom. She can seem intimidating at first, but she is no problem if you do homework and pay attention in class. Throughout the year, students who do the work set for them can understand that her harshness is actually the constructive criticism that is needed to get them higher grades. Loved having her!

She is extremely strict and will pick on people at random. If you do something just the slightest way in the wrong, be ready to get yelled at. She checks everythings and expects the best.

She's scary at first but you'll get used to her after a while. Her notes are really helpful and she marks homework really quickly.

Very helpful. Gave the best notes and told us as much as she could without giving us the answers. Quite dramatic, however it was entertaining. She is someone you warm to over the year.

She hands back results very quickly and explains things clearly. However she's not that helpful nor easy and gets off track sometimes. She also needs to lower her expectations, she said my homework wa

Extremly unclear, sets rules she then goes against. Favours people who write over the maximum amount, and is not shy in explaining to the class who is not "good enough"

Mrs Hodges is a very stern teacher. She shows high disciplinary skills but needs to lower her expectations.

She gets angry at us easily and gives us a low mark in assignments because it had like about 2-3 mistakes. She's a real perfectionist and she tries to be a cool teacher, but it's not really working at all.

Knows what she is talking about most of the time but sometimes is defeated by the class smarts. Strong on deadlines but flexible to acquire herself to other students' needs. Love her. She is funny and quirky and sometimes rediculous at times but all that adds to the enjoyment of her lessons.

Mrs Hodges is a great English teacher!!! She's sooo random at times but she's funny as well!! I think she's pretty helpful and takes time to do stuff rather than rushing though.

I really disliked her at the beginning of the year, but I don't think I realised how much work she puts into us. When I did, I started to listen to her. Now I love her lessons. She's eccentric, but that makes what she's saying interesting, she cares about what she's talking about.

Great Teacher, thoroughly enjoy being in her class. Can clearly see that she puts in the effort for her students. Can be a bit random at times, but worth sitting through when you thorougly know what you need to know for exams. Lucky to be in her class
