Mrs. Foley is definitely one of the best teachers in WHS. The limit of what you can learn in her classes cannot be measured in comparison to any other teacher. She will challenge you to test your thinking, but if you speak up, you will come into the tests with a battle-hardened, Foley-approved idea that will get a good grade anywhere (I used them in other classes as well). Her method is one of the best and she even gave me muffins once!

She is one of the toughest teachers I have ever experienced, but I learned the most from her. Her teaching method is unorthodox at best, but it works. Humanities was one of my favorite classes to go to by the end of the year

Has the most divergent teaching method I've ever seen, yet still taught me more than I ever though was possible.

You have to get used to Mrs. Foley. She has a pretty tough exterior and intimidated me like crazy when I first met her. She is a know-it-all because she literally knows it all and she'll point it out if you have anything wrong. But you realize that she is genuinely teaching for the best interests of her students. Her APUSH class pushed me so hard but I learned a lot. As time progresses, you find out about her wit and humor.

She has a tough exterior and a difficult course and you wont pass by memorizing dates and events but if you but in the effort and listen to what she has to say, you will get so much more out of the course than you would memorizing dates. Also- she is very sweet and unserstanding outside of the classroom so if you are struggling she will be willing to help

Good teacher once you get past the know-it-all attitude. You might not agree will everything she says, but most of the time she knows what she's talking about.

Nice person, quite smart, but seems to refuse to teach anything in both Hum. and APUSH. I still have no knowledge of Am.history. I am deathly afraid of the prospect of the AP test...we know nothing!
