she's a really tough grader. i got 100 on tests and 103 on final project and still only a 90 in the class. also, she thinks she is the teacher from "dangerous minds." she is always trying to reach out to kids that she thinks are troubled, but takes it too far i think.

Good teacher, nice lady, but managed to unknowingly offend every nationality on the planet including her own every month with a new unfounded "joke" or failed attempt at sarcasm.

she tries to teach but is better off as a dean. And she picks on individuals "kindly" sometimes. I wish i had a different global teacher to be honest. just 2har

For her tests remember to read those paragraphs underneath the pictures & the bios and you'll do pretty well. On proj./reports, know what you're talking about.

Ms. K is cool in a goofy way. You can tell she cares. If you just do your work and shut up, you can learn a lot. too many dittos though.

She is a teacher that if you haven't read from the text book ahead of time you don't understand a thing because she dosen't teach just repeats what was said
