She is a very good teacher, but you have to be open to her style of teaching. She won't give you an easy A, but she taught me more history than any other teacher I'd had previously. She values really good writing. She's a tough grader and her class takes some getting used to, but eventually, you'll get used to it (I started off 10H with a B and now I'm taking AP US and I have an A).

While her courses are always interesting, she will not hesitate to bring her own political bias into a class, especially when dealing with current events. However, she does allow dissenting voices to be heard. Her tests can range from rather easy to murderous (in the case of APs, nearly always the latter), but she is most always open for extra help, and can rarely be considered "unfair".

She won't give an easy 'A' but most certainly deserves one for her knowledge, humor and success in preparing students for College. Remember Perkins? ;)
