THE best history teacher I've ever had. She makes history interactive and interesting (WWI Negotiations Day!), and I loved how she could reveal the ridiculous humor or deep sadness behind these textbook historical events. She was also my first teacher to push historiographical thinking without making it dull. Loved debates in her class (she's the best devil's advocate). Two notes, though - she can be sassy to students she sees as slacking or rude, and her tests were, IMO, fair but difficult.

She is a good teacher, but not great. Her classes weren't too interesting or interactive and there was a lot of just lecturing...she is also mean to those people who she doesn't like and she has a LOTTA sass but its kind of funny. She's a really nice lady, but I didn't enjoy her class too much. STUDY for her tests!!! (if you study, you'll be fine but if you don't then watch out!)

Interesting teacher that does a bad job of teaching. Classes are easy, as are exams. You won't actually learn much about history in her classes, so if you enjoy learning about history then you're out of luck, but if you're looking for a fun teacher and a class that won't challenge you then you're in luck.

Amazing Euro teacher. Definitely considered one of the hardest AP classes (Euro) but she made it so enjoyable, rewarding, and amazing. I advise anyone to take this class with her you won't regret it one bit. I learned so much, and some of my best memories at NCP were in this class. Excellent teacher and miss Euro so much.

Ms. Irving is the best history teacher I have ever had. Her teaching style really works for me, and she teaches things in interesting ways so that they really stick to students. She is very understanding and kind, not to mention super hilarious. She knows her teaching material very well, and her instructive criticism is great. She helps students make conections and she always makes sure that everything is fully comprehended. She is an amazing teacher and I really enjoy having her.

ONE OF THE BEST TEACHERS IVE EVER HAD! She is such a fantastic teacher. Her lectures are interesting and she explains historic events in the best way possible. She can easily explain or help you understand anything and she can answer any question. Her tests are only hard if you don't pay attention or do the homework. She's extremely knowledgable in what she teaches and she teaches her students so well.She's also funny and cracks jokes in class sometimes. But, she assigns essays often.

World Studies was honestly one of my favorite courses in freshman year! While it was harder than I was used to for social sciences, that wasn't necessarily a bad thing; Ms. Irving kept things interesting for the whole year and had a ton of really cool activities to get students interested in what they were learning. Great teacher, glad she's around.
