Ms. Pavell gets a really bad rap. She is very intimidating and occasionally somewhat slightly mean, but that's just her personality and she obviously cares about her students. When low students sign up for her class--because that's what they do--they get angry realizing they actually have to work and then they turn it on her and call her pavhell. It's just rude. She does favor a feminist view but we all have opinions. In case this is confusing, Pavell is an intelligent teacher who cares a lot.
Pavell was my absolute favorite teacher! Super helpful and thorough, really easy to get along with. Don't be afraid to talk to her, she tries very hard to teach students to be fair and balanced in her class.
I feel like she secretly works for the government and is a highly trained assassin or something and is using our writing to find out which of us don't fit the governments standards so we can be picked off one by one... Beware fellow students...
People are gonna slam this teacher but she's not that bad... At least I don't think. It's too early to tell.
Fast paced teacher with good knowledge of course. Prefers favorites especially women (she is a strong feminist, very strong)
Also gives worse grades if she does not agree with your topic, very bad.
She doesnt take anyones crap. Moving from a relaxed and easy sophomore literature class to her AP lang was bad. Seemed like she was grading WAY to hard. But looking back some of my writing was actually pretty bad so maybe i deserved some of those grades. She'll eventually get you to understand how to write analyses and stuff
People always complain that Pavell is a hard teacher, or that she's mean. Just make sure that you're not on your phone and keep on her good side and she'll be a great teacher. She's a very chill teacher, would recommend.
I love Mrs. Pavell. She is hard at times, and her voice is pretty loud but if you get past that you'll learn to love her. If you actually talk to her you'll see that she's very caring and understanding.
Quite honestly one of the most rude and irrational teachers at UAHS. There have been numerous times when she has gotten inappropriately and visibly angry with students for no reason. Her classwork is either laughably easy or impossibly difficult.
Grading is horrible. I write paper with intellectual value and original idea. Girl who belongs in 5th grade writes paper on cliched thesis. (why texting is bad for example). Guess who gets the A. Go back to 5th grade and take ur star student with u.
I went to Mrs Pavell in wiw. She spoke to me in a very condescending tone, and seemed to have difficulty with my challenging her criticisms on an intellectual level. When she asked what I got on my es
she told me the only reason shes an english teacher is because she likes to read. i dont really have a hard time in the AP class cause she thinks im a genius, so its all good.
awful. the day she gives us a huge lecture about proofreading, her handout of 11 journal prompts has 10 blatant typos. thats pretty much pavell for you.
i'm pretty sure my writing has gotten worse in her class and her voice is like having your eyeball scooped out with a spoon...but i love her. she's got a sick sense of humor.
Neither teaches nor grades. Instead of discussing a book, we watch the movie version. Doesn't give you a chance to think about or enjoy books. Scary sarcasm can be funny, though.
I love Ms. Pavell!! At first I was kind of scared of her...but she is really understanding about stuff and I think she's hilarious. Her class is really fun
takes her MONTHS to grade our papers; never gives suggestions on how to improve because we NEVER get papers back. NEVER TEACHES, NO PLANS. HORRIBLE TEACHER.
She's been absent more often than all the students in her class put together. Her assignments are fillers b/c she wants to grade papers herself. NEVER teaches.
piercing voice but sometimes funny. definitely did not improve as a writer by being in her ap class. my advice: try to get martin.
I hate her class, the assignments are completely irrelevant, and I have regressed as a writer because of her class. Good luck if you have her!
Ms. Pavell was a challenging teacher, but she did a good job of varying activities to make the class more interesting and she really grew on me towards the end
she's only mean cause she misses the corner! Go AP HUMANITIES '02!
I passed and thats all that matters...i still recognize the laugh from a mile away
Ms. Pavell..what can I say? You can be a (cough) witch sometimes. I can tell you're just mean for fun, which is almost amusing at times, but makes you look pretty bad.
ms.pavell is nice, some people have a little too much time on their hands
She picks favorites and is sometimes just plain mean. And for senior thesis, your suppose to let students do what they want
she is awesome-you just have to get on her good side which is not at all hard.
I don't get it, she is nice sometimes but terribly mean most of the time
