May 12, 2014 Best teacher I ever had. Helped me grow as a student and as a person. Pushes you to do better and she's real with you. Inspiring if I do say. Respects your opinions. Gives constructive criticism which is a huge plus. She's really the greatest. Flag Rating

Aug 18, 2013 Overall, I think Ms. Berk was a really good teachers. She has a very strict policy in grading, participation and testing. She was pretty lenient for the first semester but when it gets to the second and final semester, she gives a lot of work. She assigns essays and articles/Short answer questions that requires a lot of thinking. She also grades very strict which makes it harder but she will give you guidance if you need it. She has days when she is very attitudinal but she can be very caring. Flag Rating

Jan 15, 2009 Lots of ppl said she gives to many hw. Thats not true. She makes sure you have enough time to finish each essay. She gives you weeks to have it done. Just dont save it for the last minute, then youll be fine. Flag Rating

Dec 29, 2008 Umm Lots of Kids say she has no patients and they hate her. I also think she has no patients. But overall she is a decent teacher. There were times (or alot of times) when everything had to revolve around her. Flag Rating
