Ms. Ow was extremely nice to me.. although she can be mean to others at times. She's very unbiased and fair to her students. Her class is easy too, yet helpful in learning. She has some random fun projects too..!

shes nice some days, other days she can be a moody. dont learn much but she is nice when she likes you, and so easy to get an a just as long as you do outlines. if you turn them in earlier she gives extra credit, which actually helps alot. shes pretty chill in the afternoon

Simply put, her (boring) class is a huge waste of time. She reads her lectures out of books and spends classtime being picky about pointless matters. I got an A without even trying, so if you want an easy A (or B), go for her. The only hard part is being able to tolerate her class.

AP Psych was alright but not as fun as Ms. Kwong's class. Unhelpful and boring lectures unless you go to her in person. Could help us prepare better. To me, she doesn't even seem like an AP teacher because she just reads from her son's Psych book! I was amazed at how much I was missing compared to other teacher's classes.

Psych- She thinks she knows everything. Her lectures are straight out of the book (basically, she's dictating the book for your notes). Luckily, AP Psych is pretty easy and independent study is all you need to pass the test.

She can be nice, but her Psych class is soo boring! She's not energetic, so she teaches by reading the material slowly. She tries to be all funny and kool, but no one laughs.

SHE FAVORS PEOPLE. GRADING IS RANDOM. NASTY ATTITUDE. AND MOSTLY IMPORTANTLY, I EVEN KNEW THE MATERIAL BETTER THAN HER.

Wouldn't know American Democracy if it hit her in the face in the form of a hardcover textbook. Terrible teacher, would be nothing without her teacher's edition

I get annoyed at Ms. Ow's lectures, because i had her for Psych and all her did was read out of the book and she doesn't even know the material.

I found her to be an untalented teacher with a nasty attitude. Also, her system of grading appeared arbitrary. Take a from an alum. Not recommended.
