she's one of the few teachers who actually really cares about each of her students. and she's hilarious. i'd give advice about how to get on her good side but she's retiring :( I LOVE YOU MS LAVEY!

Very nice and caring as a person, but can also mean when you forget your homework or repeat a question. Also sometimes goes on rants. I learned a lot. Do all your homework and you'll well. Don't expet to do well on the quizzes. Her attitude and humor really grow on you (in a good way :D). What I liked most was how she really took the time to listen and genuinly cares about our non-school lives.

The best way to describe miss Lavey, is "Above the rest", she will GRADE, teach, and expect you to be excelent. She is a little selfish. I would say only take her for AP's, or it will hurt your work load really. She can be a little quirkie ignore it.

although she is a very nice lady, she plays favorites. if she likes you at the end of the year, though, and your grade is boarderline, she will bump you up. definitely get on her good side.

Some of the hardest assignments ever. Not because of content, but because she is so vague! Very fickle and changes her style on everything, hard to predict.

The trick with her is to try and get her involved in a big speech about something. It takes like half an hour and then you don't do any work. She's pretty nice.
