Free to wiggle

Mrs. Mary Odell is, has been, and always will be the best IEW writing teacher that I know. Generously exercising both patience and authority, Mrs. Odell has an excellent way of holding every student’s attention, while continuing to bless them with the freedom of mobility. Having a squirmy son of her own, this wonderful teacher is understanding and compassionate, especially toward those who find it difficult to sit still and listen. Her class is enjoyable. The way that she teaches continues to help me to creatively apply her required writing techniques to my own personal writing. Mrs. Odell is fully capable of teaching anyone to write with excellence while growing a love for literature.  — Lydia (student)
