Mrs. Jarvenin is one of my favorite teachers. She is kind and respectful, and makes it seem like she really cares about all her students.

Sometimes nice, but mostly unfair in many regards. She does care about students, but not genuinely beyond her reputation and class rank.

She was a great teacher when I had her for journalism. She definitely helped me become a better writer. One problem was that I felt like she choose her favorites in that class which made many students unhappy and confused by some of her decisions. Overall it was a good class and it really taught me the meaning of a deadline.

Jarv is a great teacher, I happen to have her for yearbook. Her class is stressful by nature, but she is always there to help us out and does little things to make it more fun such as bringing in cookies, having deadline parties, etc.

She has been a great teacher this year. As long as you stay on top of the work, its not that hard of a class. She has a great sense of humor, and is rarely in a bad mood.

She's nice, but will take out bad days on you. She says she'll do something, then forget/back out. Pretty good teacher though.

Goes about trying to be nice when she tells you wrong. You can never be right in her class, unless you agree with her views.
