Mrs. Ecks was one of my favorite teachers in high school! I took AP Micro / Macroeconomics and LOVED it. The class is a lot easier if you understand basic calculus concepts beforehand (derivatives, slope, etc.) Mrs. Ecks is not for everyone though. I can tell she gets annoyed by her students occasionally but if you take the time to go and talk to her, her real personality comes out. Econ is definitely one of the more interesting and applicable subjects in school and definitely worth your time.
