I was honestly super intimidated when I saw that I got Hewit for psych, but turns out she's one of the most knowledgeable, funniest teachers I've ever had. She gives like 0 homework and her tests are not that difficult, just read the textbook and do the questions in the study guide. As long as you don't get on her bad side by talking while she's giving instruction or sleeping in class, you'll be fine. Bring food to snack on in class, and a jacket - it's freezing!!

I absolutely adored Mrs. Hewit! I had her for AP Psych 2015-2016 my senior year. I first started off not on a good spot with my grade because of the tests but you'll eventually get used to them. I got a D in the beginning of the year but worked really, REALLY hard to finally get a B+ at the end of the school year and once for a couple of weeks maintained an A since her first review test killed my grade and dropped me a few percentages. She knows what's she's talking about and is very genuine!

Get ready to get exposed. Do your Homework everyday and be prepared,or else she'll expose you in class. Listen to and obey her, don't EVER argue with her, she might take points off you. She's one of the stricter teachers on campus, but she's good for AP Stats.

I know it's a pretty different story when it comes to her stats class, but from my experience (I had her for psych), she was the best! Probably one of the easiest AP classes I've ever taken, and it was usually pretty entertaining. Loved it!

Dorinda was the HARDEST/ scariest teacher I've ever had. She loved to put students on the spot and HATED being wrong. If you're bad at math... beware or drop immediately. Ik some students who were rescinded from their college because she didn't round

at the beginning of the year, i thought she was the worst teacher ever. she seemed strict and her tests were quite hard. but, as the year progresses, you get used to her and her mood swings. make sure you do your homework correctly and NEVER bs it. never ever. she will catch you AND not tell you and hate you forever and ever. she's an excellent stats teacher. knows her stuff really well. AP exam was super easy. got a 5. Just be a good student and her class is fun

She is brilliant. And remembers EVERYTHING. Thats good and bad. She makes the AP Statistics tests do she knows her stuff. You gotta show up to class and work hard or she'll hate you forevers.

Ahh... Hewit. One of the stricter teachers, sure, but she is one of those teachers that's so good that you can put up with all her idiosyncrasies. I had her for psych, and you don't have to worry about a grade or homework in that class. I found it helpful that she emphasized learning over grades.

Had her for both Psych and Stats. Her "mood swings" are annoying to say the least and she is a bully in to anyone who asks a question in stats. Psych she plays favorites and, to me, seemed very fake.

I am in her stats class instead of psyc, and i feel that she is not a good teacher. She puts people on the spot, and her mood swings are hard to keep track of. She is making me lose interest in math.

I'm kinda mixed on my judgments for her. Her tests are not easy, it takes effort to get homework and labs to be perfect. Her attitude isn't quite at best (often scolds or screams at you). But is clear
