Mrs. Makrauer is an extremely helpful teacher because she doesn't give me the answers when I'm stuck on a piece of writing. She makes me think about what it is I want to say. My writing has improved so much with her as my teacher. There is always a way to make a piece stronger and she is always willing to help, even with the minor creative details.

Analytical essays, poetry, and workshops have all helped me develop my writing skills; I feel ready for journalism classes in college. Thank you, Mrs. Makrauer, it's been fun.

I recommend Danielle as a teacher because she is always there to help when you need it. In high school her class was one of my favorites. When I felt like throwing away a piece of writing that I had been working on, she always told me not to give up, and when I finally finished the piece I was so happy with it. Danielle is an amazing teacher.

I couldn't have picked a better class than Honors Writing for my senior year at Lawrence Academy. Most of my struggles in school were evident in my writing: effort, time management, etc., and Danielle took time out of her day to not only to help me improve my writing, but for me as a person. Her criticisms were just enough to get me to think about what I needed to do to change me for the best, and it showed in not only my writing but my schooling in general (i think:P). It was definitely a positive experience and I wouldn't have traded it for anything.
