I had Mrs. Avery for Global Themes A, and I throughly enjoyed the experience. She was quite nice, knowledgeable, her tests were easy, though all open ended, and the atmosphere in the class was generally laid back and positive. Though she sometimes doesn't know how to control a class, I felt as if the class itself respected her and would listen for the most part. Would strongly recommend.

I had her for honors U.S this year and it was an absolute drag. I think it was partially do to the highly opinion based curriculum. The curriculum is very liberal and is full of loaded questions. Even though I am a liberal myself, this curriculum and this teacher made me hate liberals. She only talks about her opinions and she seems to try and make the students feel guilty for being wealthy/living in Westport (as if it was a choice).

so you kind of have to self teach a little bit here, but her class is enjoyable. She's easy though. I can say that in an honors course this year, we did not have one single test. two pop quizzes for reading and a few projects here and there, and some essays. You'll be fine its a lot of watching documentaries

Ms.Avery is a really nice person but she doesn't really teach the class. All of her assignments are online and she doesn't teach you any material. The whole class is self taught. She is also a really hard grader when it comes to writing papers.

Ms Avery is literally the sweetest, kindest and smartest teacher I've ever had. She is extremely knowledgable and well-educated, yet is SO humble and genuine, which is honestly such a relief from the other people in westport/staples. She teaches so clearly and is always so generous and gave up a lot of her time to give me extra help. Best of all, she is SO sweet and kind, she's young and lively, and we'd always complement each other on our outfits :)

She's one of those teachers who have favorites, but because some students warm to her style of teaching while others simply don't. There's some required self-teaching but in general she gets more chill as the year goes on. She's a great teacher and also shows her human side, which makes her easy to talk and relate to. Sometimes a little disorganized but that makes it better for the students... aka flexible deadlines if you try enough. One of the best teachers I've had so far!

will not help students who need it. not clear at all. teach's you nothing. you must learn everything by your self. If you want help, either talk to a friend or read the text book. One of the worst teachers i've had

Great teacher, makes every subject interesting. Ap Mod has become one of my favorit history classes ever and I have learned so much from her. A lot of work but it is all worth it. She has a tremendous amount of knowledge on the subject and guides you through the course with ease. Take her!

Surfs internet while you copy notes from textbook. The extent of her teaching is showing PowerPoints, which have lots of clipart to mask their complete lack of information. Easy grader, and tests are a breeze, but you'll have to teach yourself everything.
