Thought it would be hard, it's really easy if you pay attention. Good teacher
It is a pretty average honors class.
Not an easy nor an extremely hard class, just pay attention. Extremely nice, and if came from Mr.Clark's US 1 class, consider her a blessing. No favorites for anything with her, just give her respect.
She's nice, but not in a way that's overly obvious - more so in a way that she respects you as a student/learner and expects respect in return. She'll help if you ask for it, and she's definitely knowledgable about history; furthermore, she's a reasonable grader and essentially a reasonable teacher. Don't expect any free passes, but she doesn't play favorites, and she doesn't purposely fail you. It's a couple steps up from some of the other teachers at this school and others.
She grades assignments too harshly, especially essays/writing. She is stingy when it comes to giving points, even if you follow the assignment requirements. She is ignorant of hard work, so don't expect your grades to accurately reflect your work ethic. She assigns more work than she is capable of grading and grades things weeks after they're due. She isn't much of a teacher either; in class she just tells you random unnecessary facts that aren't in the book, which is where you learn everything.
Everyone always says Stampoulos is so hard but honestly its an honors class, what are you expecting? her class is only hard compared to foley, and the only thing hard about her class are the essay assignments. she is a really good teacher and she knows what she's doing, unlike foley. she genuinely cares about her students and will do anything to help them
Do Not make the same mistake I did. I thought "well I don't wanna screw up my schedule an switch to foley, how bad could it be." evidently very. Switch to Foley in you get her for USH IIH. It will be the best decision that you ever make
I'm in Art Music and Media with her right now and she is so cool. That class is amazing. It's definitely my favorite class of my whole high school career so far!
she's nice and a good teacher, but she has REALLY high expectations. lots of hw, lots of reading checks. she is an impossible grader on essays... unless you truly love history and don't mind all the work, you should consider dropping
she can be nice most of the time but she can also be suddenly and surprisingly mean... i believe she also plays favorites subtly.
BEST TEACHER EVER! I LOVE HER! SHE IS SO NICE AND A GREAT TEACHER..SHE MADE HISTORY FUN! SHE IS A FAIR GRADER... =]
