One of my favorite teachers! Mrs. Devine is very passionate, and will have you wide awake even on your most exhausted days ( ha!). Her teaching is thorough, yet not stressful. She doesn't go by the book. I would absolutely recommend Mrs. Devine to anyone thinking of taking a course with her, you will not be disappointed!

By far one of my favorite teachers! She goes beyond just teaching and get students to see the bigger picture, relate it to current events, and their own lives. She works to use modern technology into class, and doesn't teach to the test like many history teachers do.

The most committed teacher I have ever had. Any difficulty and extra work that the class might bring is worth the knowledge and experience that you will receive.

Most wonderful, passionate teacher I've ever had! Yes, when I had her sometimes I did not like her very much.... that was just because I was upset that I wasn't doing as well as I wanted. She taught me how to love learning again though, and not worry so much about the grade. AP US was one of the har

Pretentious and arrogant. All material is oversimplified. Talks a lot about respect but is rude and condesending to students. Really the least favorite teacher I have in every way.

Definately one of the most excellent teachers i have ever had. At only half way through the year i have found my self challenged in her class, but don't let challenges distress you about her class, she is always avalible for extra help as long as you ask. She also loves hearing students ideas after class as i can attest to from putting forth several theories to her after my class

She is hands down the best teacher at Hall. Ask any other teacher (or student for that matter) and they will be the same. There is just no questioning her commitment, her ability to engage, and her passion.

The thing that sets Devine apart from other teachers is her ability to see "the big picture." Unlike most teachers, she recognizes history isn't the only thing in the world.

AP US is the best class I have ever taken. Ever. Makes school worth going to. The class is beautiful. Its like getting a dose of pure enlightenment everyday. You will look at America in a different way after her. I can't express to you how great she is.
