She is knowledgeable and makes class very interesting with her hilarious stories. However, her teaching can be very politically biased and sometime verges on complaining/giving opinions on issues rather than teaching the facts.

I had Mrs. Mawhinney's class over a decade ago. To be completely honest, I don't remember anything about the class, but I do remember thinking that she was a good looking lady. :)

D-Mawhney was tough but taught well. For AP, you do the work and study you do fine. Not biased. I got a 4 on AP Gov. Gets sidetracked but it's fun sometimes! (Nice break from work)

The most AWESOMELY funny storyteller you could find, plus a great teacher that you could say practically anything to and start a school-related conversation!

Mrs. Mawhinney is a great teacher who always makes things fun. She is a bit unclear, however, on things such as...homework!
