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).
Caren is truly sadistic. Beginning as a mere freshman at the Academy, she cold heartedly entered the classroom with a mug that she claimed held the blood of students in the past. While this may seem as some lighthearted freshman fun, she proved her sadistic demeanor throughout the rest of the course. With thus being said, expect to be publicly ostracized if you're the student who couldn't possibly complete all her demanding tasks the night before while she laughs with others.
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".
Although Mrs. Platis could be difficult, she is truly a great teacher and is truly passionate about her job.
Excellent teacher. She takes an interest in her students, she is dedicated and passionate about her work.
She's a tough teacher but is so nice and really cares about her students.
Excellent teacher. One of the best people to talk to. Strict, but humorous. Demanding for all the right reasons.
She is a great teacher. She can be tough at times, but she is trying to challenge you and make you think. She wants you to do the best that you can and is always available to help.
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? ;)
a demanding teacher, but in a good way- you come away with a deep knowledge of the history- great personality- should be a comic on the side
Mrs. Platis Challenges her students to work to their greatest potential and those who don't will feel her wrath! overall- an outstanding teacher!
mrs platis is a good teacher but she has too many favorites.
Yes, she is one of the most difficult teachers at school, but she is also one of the rare ones from which you will actually learn something.
I was afraid of her at first. But she made GLOBALhistory so much fun!Our long discussions were soo much better than taking notes.
She's a little strict, but a very nice lady and a good teacher overall.
She is always helpful, ready to listen and talk to, and is overall a great teacher. ap u.s. was one of my favorite classes of high school.
Mrs. Platis is the best. She was by far, my favorite and most helpful teacher in high school. Everything she has taught me stays with me to this day.
Excellent teacher. She is the best person to talk to also.
