She's extremely sarcastic and that confuses a lot of students who haven't had her before. I'm sure everything she does in class is to make sure her students are actually paying attention, but a lot of the times it seems very redundant and painstaking. She seems like a very nice person, but I wouldn't recommend her to other students.
She really cares about her students and goes over material until you understand it. She's very easy to talk to and makes you feel happy in class!
I had her for two years in a row (Soft-more and Junior) The tests are VERY easy. Just take notes and go over them the night before a test and you'll ace it. Little to no homework which is nice. Get on her good side. She is EXTREMELY sarcastic 75% of the time as well, so be prepared. She got a major in Soviet Politics right before the USSR fell apart so she became a history teacher. If you have World History you focus a lot on the Russia unit. Besides that nice teacher, easy class. :D
She's a fun teacher! She likes to joke and is very laid back. She's never stressed out like all of my other teachers can get. I have major respect for her.
I had her for APUSH, loved her! She jokes around with you a lot. You need to be ready for that!
had her as a history teacher and she was terrible and didnt prepare us for the AP test
Gotta love the Sterg but can be harsh on her rules
She is one of the laziest teachers at the school. She sits at her computer all class and tells us to read and answer questions. I can do this on my own damn time and don't need to waste my time going to a class like this! It is just **** ridiculous how our taxpayer dollars are going to people like this. She is too lazy to hand grade assignments, so she knowingly lets a scantron machine make errors on our tests. This lady has a free 6th period. She can't claim she has no time to hand grade.
She's a good teacher. She makes us do work that is too irrelevant though and we don't get much value out of. I love her sarcasm, but she treats us like adults which is a good thing.
Gotta love the Sterg! Funny, witty, smart, cool class! She and Preske were my fav's!! I am going to miss not being at Torrey Pines next year. USC, here I come!
Ms. Sterger was my favorite teacher by far! She is always smiling and cracks jokes during class. She is also really intelligent and knows what she is talking about. I am going to miss her next year!
She doesn't do much in class. She just made us do everything like grading quizzes. She doesn't pass back exams and projects. She made us do ridiculous homework when we misbehave. She just don't care.
Her test have very little to do with what she teaches. She is unkind to certain students and she is oblivious to what is going on around her.
Where to begin with Sterger... I graduated from TPHS 2 years ago, yet I feel compelled to explain the horrific environment she creates in her classroom. In my class there were 2 kids she commonly picked on: one had a learning disability
Worst teacher i have ever had. Most boring class i have ever had she dosent make learning fun i also feel like she picks on kids and choses favorites. Everything that was stated below is pretty much true.
STERG! sterg is pretty cool when you get to know her, she actually knows a lot about politics and government but you have to ask her. she doesn't expect a whole lot out of you and that's fine with me!
Sterge couldn't care less about her teaching... and that's why it's awesome! She pretends to give us work, but never collects it. If you don't give her a hard time and listen to her minimal instuctions, it will be a breeze!
sterger can be nice if she likes you, but if she doesnt than she will pretty much embarass you in front of the whole class. she talks on the phone and checks her email for like half the class... doesnt really teach a lot.. but her class is very easyyy
I learned so much from her without ever opening the book. Great lectures, not the friendliest person, but still awesome.
turned in all work, got good grades on every test and I ended up with a C. She never hands back graded things. You think youll get an A on the final..but you wont. Questions were so easy but i got aD
easy class. but i really dosnt get you anywhere. like its cool to be in... but i didnt know anything on the SAT2 becasue she didnt teach any of it...
she smokes pot, no homework, teaches, easy class, get on her good side get an A, be on gymnastics, get and A
Recently to the STAR test(US History, i didnt know half the answers cause she focused on WORLD history more than US.
OMG such an easy class.. the test questions are SO easy and there's like 3 of the same question. she treats us like we're 5 but she's really cool and funny .
retarted teacher. I would learn more if i taught it to my self.
Why is it that some teachers just don't teach..??!!!!
shes is probably the worst teacher i have ever had. i didnt learn at all in that class. I hope she has been fired.
easy class, hardly any homework but I actually learned some stuff
I'll admit, having 2 hw assignments a yr really does help lighten my load of hw every night, but honestly we have 4 assignments a yr! Whatever grade you get on a test (o yeah ex questions: Did Stalin have a mustache? How many children did Stalin have&
the sterg is aweome. She isn't the most friendly person, but we learn so much in such a fun way. i love going to her class
Easily the best world history teacher. Hands down! And what a fun class!!
OMG shes so cool!!!!! she is sooo easy and nice....all we do is draw pictures and watch movies....:)
Sterger is my favorite teacher of all time. I learned a lot from her class by doing things that seemed so pointless at the time. Thanks Sterger!!
Sterger is AWESOME!!! she is so easy but we learn soooo much!
the coolest teacher EVER! NO homework, yet we're learning so much! and she's so easy
I love the fact that we've learnt history without using our books. I think we've learnt more than other class that use their books.
