I like Mrs. Sidor. I'm not saying her class wasn't easy because it wasn't. And I got nervous when she was angry at us for not coming to class prepared. But she wanted all of us to do our best and that's what matters. And when she was happy with you or you do well in her class it is very rewarding
Cutest little lady ever!!!!!! Knows stuff but is kind of unclear. I didn't learn a lot but somehow I was prepared for the AP exam, which I suppose was the main goal of the class.
Mrs. Sidor used to teach APUSH which people referred as the hardest history class. This was her first year in AP World History. Although she is smart, I felt from the way she teaches that her main goal is to get us to pass the AP exam, not teach us the history. All she ever does is read powerpoints. You'll write more SAQs, DBQs, and LEQs in this class than you ever did in your life. I used to like history classes but now this is one of my most-hated subject. This is a VERY STRESSFUL course.
She would lose my papers and scores often and would not give me credit for my hard work :( The DBQ's are impossible to do well on unless you are one of her favorite students, and the tests are way too long for the time allotted. She assigns around six hours of homework a week between her study guides, test prep, and projects. \
She makes me feel bad if they didn't know something and didn't teach in class effectively, everything she assigned was confusing
She knows her shiz and makes you know it too. Outside of class she is super considerate and friendly
It is interesting to see the cry babies who stop by here to whine about Mrs. Sidor. When you get to college, you will find out that you were lucky to have her because she prepared you. Stop crying like a baby and start working.
She is a very knowledgeable person, but you have to come to her with questions about the material you read. Does very well at simulating a college level course on American History. In addition, her tests are usually pretty easy.
She's an excellent teacher, a little quiet from the back of the classroom but really knowledgeable and willing to help.
I hated mrs sidor so much. hardest teacher ever and i was in her regular class and it easily could have been an ap class. hate her
Better than orloff-agreed! Sidor actually sounds like a teacher. Orloff's grammar, prose,
Better than Orloff that's for sure. Mrs. S is understanding, knowledgeable,
She treats the class as though it is an AP class, and her directions are ambiguous to the point where only one or two people are prepared for class the next day.
I had Mrs. Sidor for IB Econ, she is really hard in the class, but she is willing to help you to get ready for college. Great teacher.
The best teacher at UA. People who whine about her simply don't like to work hard. She works you hard, finds your weaknesses and helps you in these areas so you are ready for college. Toughen up!
AP Econ was definatly my hardest course this year, but out of all the AP/IB courses i've taken, sidor is the only one who has actually prepped me for any college level work.
be careful, she is the closest to a college level teacher you will find at this school, but she is incredible. changed my entire method of thinking and studying.
One of the best teachers. Make sure you do and understand the reading and that you ask questions in her class. Good person and a good teacher... a rare and marvelous combination!
I had her for AP American and I'm currently in IB Econ High Level and she is simply amazing. She is so great at what she does and will really prep you.
Hands down best teacher I have ever had. She knows exactly what she is talking about, she is clear, concise, listens to your questions, and will do anything to help you suceed.
Great teacher. Extremely hard, but will definitely prepare you for college. Trust me, there aren't many who can do that.
I've never learned so much in my life. Mrs. Sidor you are a grea teacher!
The best teacher at UAHS. Offers challenging classes with learning materials that students will see in college. 5 years out and I still feel her influence.
Mrs. Sidor, you ROCK. Just because other people can't take the heat doesn't mean anything. You make us work hard, but that's what makes us better. Love you!
If you have the determination to do well, she will do anything to help you, but don't expect her to be easy! She has taught me more than any other teacher.
You know your stuff and can be very helpful, if you'd learn to be more open minded toward students' ideas, maybe you wouldn't get those unpopular ratings...
great teacher. i only wish i would have had the time to take economics with her. she is funny and nice, especially if you put forth effort.
Sidor you had me change an essay thesis not because it was no good, but because you didn't agree with my idea--no good teacher would do that
Aww Mrs.Sidor you're an awesome person - so adorable. Yes you love econ but who doesn't! You also love history.
She is pure evil on the verge of utter insanity. American history is NOT econ, and high school juniors are NOT malicious imps to be reckoned with. Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone!
haha Oh Ms. Sidor, whoever said they didnt like you should chill out, because you are a great teacher, yeah you are hard and can be mean and snippy but your heart is definatly in the right place. the hard is what makes it great. Thanks
Mrs Sidor, you challenged me in so manys ways... I often thought I disliked you but I owe so much to you. You helped me to become the engaged and educated student I am today. For that, I am eternally grateful...
Sometimes she gets sidetracked, but she knows her stuff
