Although this woman knows a lot, she doesn't pass on or teach her knowledge of US history to her students, she makes them read stuff she finds on the internet or in books, to fend for themselves with confusing directions she will change last minute. She talks more about school clubs or her life than she does about history.
Don't listen to any of the people saying she is a bad teacher/person. Mrs. Funk may have a hard exterior sometimes, but she is an amazing person and teacher. She gets frustrated and has bad days sometimes but so does everyone. I had her for Interact and history and she is such an incredible and giving person. You guys have noooo idea what AP classes are and how hard they are if you compare her work to it. Suck it up and get some respect.
She's an awful human being that makes it her duty to personally ruin her student's day.
I've had a lot of prick teachers but let me tell you, Funk is the cactus.
Funk should teach US history, but instead she tells us HER history. (We know where she lives, TMI.) Her instructions are unclear & confusing. She changes them a day or two before the project is due. And when you don't meet her standards, she'll screech at you. She grades all her assignments last minute, waiting until the night before to post it on genesis.
She can't keep her hair straight, let alone her classes.
oh lawdie. praying for you
I think she likes talking about her personal life and the clubs she runs more than teaching the class. You have to learn everything by yourself she does not help you at all. I legitamately feel very sorry for you if you get her. It'd be less of a hassle and effort to sell your house, move across country, buy a house, and enroll in another school than her to be in her CPE Class.
Honestly take AP it's going to be worth it in the long run.
I've got 99 problems and 86 of them tie back to her
Although she undoubtably has good intensions, the personal experience my class has had with this teacher has been negative. She goes between yelling at the class to laughing and telling stories about interact. Her assignments are not clear--they often send me and my classmates for a loop. She does not grade until the end of the marking period, so there is no way to determine academic success until it is too late. She also has some infatuation with MLA guidelines that she keeps altering.
If you get Funk do the following
Go home and cry until you cannot cry anymore
yeah just take AP or honors, it'll be easier and the amount of time you put in for a Funk test, you could put the same amount of time in on an AP test and get a better grade on the AP versus a CPE funk
she teaches CP courses like a college class. terrible. horrible. the reason why good people die young.
MRS. FUNK IS THE WORST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD!!!!! She doesn't teach us anything! She hands out huge packets and tells us to answer a ton of questions on it! I am an honors student and this was my worst class average because of all the work!! HATE.
Worst teacher I have ever had- gives so much work, which is all textbook work or packets; has no reasoning behind grading; you have to teach everything to yourself; never gives back essays or assignments. If you get her, switch out right away!
More work than honors, learn nothing, only do textbook work/packets, she has no reasoning behind her grading, she screams at you...I am taking AP US 1 next year just to ensure I won't get her as a teacher again-worse teacher I've ever had by far
I never had her as a teacher, but I did Interact with her and she is amazing. She is a really nice teacher and all around human being. She spends so much of her own time and money on the projects that we do. So people say that she is so strict, but really, I think that she has so much on her mind and has to do some many things that she want things done a certain way. She is so nice <3
Best teacher for USI-CPE!!! Great Class. Really prepares you for college-level work. Not the class for you if you are not serious about your work.
Hard teacher but fair. Need to do your work and be prepared for class. She is always willing to help!!! Coolest Interact Advisor - gives 100% to help others.
Ms. Funk gives out wayyyyyyy tooo much work, and she expects waayyy too much from her students. But if you need help with something, she knows exactly how to help you.
Mrs. Funk is great. She offers extra help sessions and takes the time to teach her students how to write!!! If you don't get it the first time, she will let you rewrite an assignment.
Mrs.Funk can be good but she is VERY vague with her assignments and expects an enormous amount of learning to be done out of school. Your supposed to learn in school and review out of school.
I HATE this teacher, she thinks she can assign you loads of work in one day and expect you to know everything about it the next day. She's careless of the students and has an annoying accent.
SHe's too strict! She should make learning more fun. I dread going to class!
She's nice if you get on her good side, but she is the ONLY TEACHER WHO GIVES US WORK OVER THE BREAK!!!!!!
Very hard working. Dedicated to teaching. Always willing to help others. Loved her law class!!! Awesome!!!
Great law teacher, was hard in US1 but i learned a whole lot of stuff
she's a really nice person, and you slackers just can't handle the work
Very cool, you just have to get to know her and give her a chance
It Was The Hardest Class I Had I A While, But I Learned Alot.
