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.
she is a great teacher and is very helpful
Had her for AP euro. She makes me laugh. Not sure why people the class is tough just pay attention she goes over everything dumbasses.
boring class. very vague
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
awesome teacher, knows everything about AP Euro, awesome.
Ms. Avery is such a sweet person, but a terrible teacher...everyday it is the same exact thing answering the same exact question, except for different units. remember relate it to the AMERICAN PRINCIPLES and IDEALS
My only complaint is that a lot of her assignments are very vague, without many guidelines.
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.
Based on the categories she's not great but overall by far my best senior year teacher
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
If your mature and treat her with respect she ll be a really good teacher. shes smart but kind of close minded, I had her for psychology and it was a great class. Got an easy A
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.
although ap mod has been one of the most challenging classes i've taken at staples, it has been my favorite. she gives a lot of work, but i have learned so much from her. she is very passionate about her subject and makes others love it too! I <3 AVERY!!!
To quote her I was in a class "with a shoe-size IQ" That made her class pretty tough in addition to the fact she wasn't all that helpful or clear with assignments
She is a nice woman but a terrible teacher, she dose not try to help the students at all.
AVES IS SO MONEY WE LOVE PERIOD 8 SHES THE BESTEST TEACHER EVERRR holler Carol!!!
MISS AVERY IS SOOO COOL EVEN THOUGH SHE DOESN'T THINK I THINK SHE IS!!!!!!!!!
Ms. Avery is soo smart. She makes all of her classes interesting....the best!! I wish all my teachers could be this good !!
the class was deff hard but i woudl deff take her again she was soo quirky n sarcastic she made the class, i enjoyed the class n i learned which is always a plu
she gave way way too much hw but besides that she wasnt a bad teacher, but way too much hw
She remindes me of Phaf from freshman year. Great class, for all the work.
She's amazing!You'll never have another teacher as wonderful as she. She challenges you but it is for the best.Take it from me, I got a 4 on the test!YO CAVERY!
Very cool, very pretty, very nice, but gives way way way too much homework!
In the midst of a reconstruting department, miss avery shines through the rubble.In 1yr she has become the driving force for my pursuit of knowledge in my life.
I LOVE MS.AVERY!!! I WILL MISS HER AND HER CLASS SOO MUCH!!!
Miss Avery is quite possibly the best teacher I have ever had. Anyone who thinks she is a bad teacher clearly has not paid any attention in her classes.
MISS Avery rules!!!! She is so smart and knows everything about history. She should be a college professor (and she's cool too)
