I truthfully worked my hardest in this class, but I learned through this class that no matter how hard you work, you cannot achieve your goal because that is the way "The Real World" works. Spent my nights crying myself to sleep because this class was so hard, and there was no way for me to improve myself. She is a really nice, service-oriented lady. I went to her office for help a lot, but I still did not get satisfactory grades on the tests, because I was not a good enough student.

she is a nice person with good intentions but assigns too many projects and IS A VERY UNFAIR GRADER. she picks favorites and grades mostly based on that. my test and quiz grades are A's but when there is no right or wrong answer favorites come into play

She started off the year being nice to us all. We all liked her. Unfortunately, as the year went on she started to become meaner and meaner! Then everybody hated her! She only cares about Africa.

Although she was nice she just wasn't a good teacher. She went on tangents constantly and would flat out forget to tell us about projects and assignments.

looking back, mrs muir wasnt an effective history teacher.... most nt history teachers teach their students to 'think' rather than to memorize dates and facts, which mrs muir did.

she's alright i guess..the class isn't that hard but we learn more about africa then anything else. a warning, she completely picks favorites so if you want to get on her good side, join global activism club (plus it's fun!)

She is belligerent. Nice but bad teacher, can't get to business. But she's the best if you don't want to learn anything. Lessons EXTREMELY boring but tangents are frequent.

Ms. Muir is a nice person, hard teacher. She doesn't really explain tests or projects too well. But I think it's great how she cares about Africa a lot.

I really like her. Even if she's not completely clear, she's a nice teacher who truly cares about you. And plus, she thinks that all writing done in the class is brilliant.

She is specific on what she wants, but bad at communicating what she wants. We always have to expand on discussions long after it becomes tedious and boring.
