good teacher, even though she stands out. Hardcore feminist at an all guy school
What is a feminist doing at an all boys school? Good question, and I'm really not sure why she stays. The result is a laid back teacher who doesn't connect with students whatsoever, and just "does her job." The class isn't awful and she doesn't always try to throw her liberal illogicality on you (pardon my bias), but I can guarantee it wont be your favorite. In the middle on class difficulty.
I don't know where all of the bad reviews are coming from. I had her Junior year for English, and she was a pretty good teacher. As long as you do her assignments and don't act like a moron, you'll enjoy the class. She's also really friendly outside of the classroom.
She was possibly the worst teacher I have ever had and almost the most obnoxious - she is a big feminist to the point where you are not allowed to call her Mrs. Mulligan even though she is married and she looks like a flamboyant chubby teenaged boy.
The only time she ever smiles is when she has a smartass comeback for us.
Grades so easy so as not to improve students' writing; somewhat lazy; questionable class structure; still extremely knowledgeable though
she is pretty much one of the worst teachers ive ever had, threw me out of class several times on "retarted" charges, female teachers just should not teach at a all male school it just dosent work...
Plays guitar, can't control our class, and is really fair, easy class, nice person
AWESOME definitely knows what shes talking about and obviously luvs lit/writing sarcastic and funny! makes class fun with discussion, socratic seminar, and ops
wicked easy class... pretty original too, with occasional papers we get to talk about stuff that we want to talk about.
All Girls College and the New schedule. Shes insane for that. But cant complain, shes nice enough, i do well, and the class is a nice easy release.
she used to be a lot worse... but now her class's pretty easy and original too...
One of teh nicest ladies I have ever had teaching me.. Too bad everyone takes advantage of her
My class took advantage of Ms. Vanaskies kind nature and made it so she had to be the way she was. She was a freshman teacher and will do better next year
Anyone who says her class was hard is a moron that doesn't deserve the right to live. You'll probably end up working at BK the rest of your lives.
miss vanaskie rocks my socks and all my other footwear. and whoever said that she doesn't know anything about english well let's just say you're a stoner
I like Ms Vanaskie, i think she's pretty helpful she's also brutally honest. She helped me out once so i really can't say anything bad about her.
great teacher lol - likes her self though ( alittle to much )
most people look down on vanaskie for unorthodox teching, but i actually learned stuff in class, her tests aren't hard either bc its not just memorzing facts.
Ms. Vanaskie... throwing a book isn't called for... Also... tests are waaaay too hard. Flocks r fun tho... keep up the good work.
