shes commited to her job.

Ms Linda Cholas is a very nice lady and i am very honered to have been taught by her. I have had Ms. Linda for two semesters now and If i should pass her english 21 R and move on to english 102, then i will surely miss her a lot.
It would help to make learning and studying more motivational if there's some adjustment to her syllabus, correction on our test in class so we know what the answer is and where we had made the mistake, show us how to do the homework or go over it until w
MAHALO...........
