I had this teacher years ago at CVHS for AP. She's a good person & knowledgable, too. But, I felt very ignored in her class. She only called on same 3-4 stellar students & didn't engage me in class.

I still remember Dr. Szwajkowski as being my favorite teacher. I had her back at Centreville High School in 1997-1998 and she really made her mark. An unforgettable, awesome teacher.

One of the beast teachers in the school, she manages to perfectly balance political discussion and personal anecdotes without losing track of the matter at hand. Also is the BEST lecturer in the school, I lean more from her lectures then the book, and I'm one of the few who actually reads it. Not to mention she is understanding and will often offer a grace period motivating you to show your appreciation. Very glad to have her two years in a row and would be lucky to get a teacher like her in college. - Phil

Amazing teacher and person. Success in her class consists of two elements: working hard and working very hard. Her class is interesting, too.

It would help if we actually talked about stuff we were going to get tested on during class time. What we get graded on has nada to do with her random lectures.

An excellent, experienced teacher who sometimes lets her beliefs get in the way of instructing impartially.
