Don't see any comments for her since 2012 so I'll add some tips (Hn US Hist):
She never spoke about her kids in my class, and used the time we had well. I think a lot of the negative comments dont apply anymore, as shes learned over the years. But she is repetitive about her rules.
She really wants to help you and unlike all my other history teachers, actually has solid advice. Go in for saxon time if you arent succeeding, shell really help you.
I love Ms. Shapiro. She is one of the nicest, awesomest teachers I've ever had!!!! :)
I had her for Pre-AP last year 7th block, here are a few quotes her students will know
"NO i didnt grade your tests from 2 quarters ago! I HAVE KIDS!"
"the text book is so dry" <---this makes me thirsty
"NO QUESTIONS! WE HAVE NO TIME!"
oh and during tests she is so LOUD and talks to other students during the tests, SO ANNOYING. i could not concentrate on a single test.
She always says a sentance and has a pause for fill in the blank but if no one says the answer, you dont get the answer
Had Shapiro for Pre-AP World History. Her tests can be challenging and she often repeats herself. She's a nice person and honestly tries to make class fun and interesting. Go to her voluntary reviews!
Her tests are always filled with what you'd expect, AND ten or so totally random questions that you later realised she mentioned once in a quick passing.
Liked her but some of her teaching methods were strange
She was an amazing teacher. She gave us plenty of help and was firm but not too strict. She did well as a teacher and kept everything positive :)
What's wrong with you guys, she was my favorite teacher last year. Sure I wasn't in Pre-AP but I learned so much and kept me interested all the time. The best part was her exp from being a mom helped.
shes really nice, and is honestly a good person, but sometimes she gets a little bit annoying when she keeps talking about her kids. we usually run out of class time because of this.
generally pretty nice, just dont be lazy or arrogant. she does hand back papers late tho. her- "i have a lot of papers to grade!" me- ya, so does Jewell but she gets them back to us in the same month
how dare you all she is a saint plus i love her lil boys
I had her while she was pregnant, so moody. she seems nice, but she hates when you ask questions
She is a really nice teacher personality wise but she gets to personal. She blames her children for not grading things fast enough, even if it's a scan tron.
My advice to anyone having her: Bring an apple on the first day, It's a free A for the rest of the year.
my only advice for people that are going to have her in the furture : SWITCH OUT. i know her sons birthdays, and not the day of our test.. enough said.
she's a really nice teacher all around, but i honestly don't think she is amazing at teaching. :/
shes a great teacher but you have to show her that you wanna learn and work hard or she wont respect you that much. 6th period represent!!
most amazing teacher ever! I <3 mrs. Shaps...she is so nice and such a great teacher and always gives you help when you need it...her class is really fun to cuz she does alot of fun projects! :)
Im happy that shes nice to me cause im challenged in my mental state and i need teachers who are nice to stupid kids... shes a good teacher
such a great teacher. She is really hard but if you do what you are supposed to you'll do fine
She's a nice person but still a good teacher. Read the textbook and study for the tests and you'll do well.
i really liked her because she was nice to the kids who weren't as smart as the rest of the kids. if you asked for help she would do her best to help you. she never made you feel dumb, and always gave you credit for trying your best. a nice lady in general.
She is one of the nicest human eings i have ever met, without being a cookies-and-milk pushover. She also does one thing other teachers dont which is she is nice to the kids who do poorly as much as the kids who get As, and sees the good in both.
@ the beginning of the year she was def. my best teacher. but she always makes excuses for not having things graded. shes really picky and most ppl dont do well on her tests and stuff
Great Teacher and always willing to help out if you didn't understand something
nice first semester, mean 2nd semester, gives a lot of hw that takes u 2 hours
AWSOME TEACHER!!! i LOVED her! if you do the study guides you will get 100% on everything i guarantee!
Mrs. Shap is awesome! Our class is so much fun and she never gets mad at us! She is good with giving a littl eamount of homework and spreadig it out.
Shes so sweet and a great lacrosse coach. She never gets mad, and she's very approachable
the nicest lady. -very careing. do the study guides and you will get over 100 percent on any test or quiz
Needs to mind her own business. ALways snooping to see what your doing. Nice teacher, but treats you like your in kindergarden.
