Best teacher in the whole freaken world. She's so funny, understanding, and helpful. She really prepares you for the AP exam and this class didn't even feel like an AP at all and went by so fast. It was that fun and the homework is not much. As long as you do your work and try, you'll get an A. Love her so much

If you have her for your teacher, you're pretty much set for the AP exam. If you try hard and do work in her class, you're basically guaranteed a passing score on the AP exam. She's wonderful and makes the class really fun and doesn't even feel like an AP class. If you need help, ASK QUESTIONS! That's how you will learn about things in her class. ASK QUESTIONS if you don't know. She will work with you till the end if you ask her too!

don't take this class expecting to get an A. Mrs. Narveson really teaches you your history but its not an easy class. She's an awesome teacher, just not easy. Very fun class, ask questions!

She is the best teacher you will ever have, which is sort of cool, but then also really sad. I wish she could be my Mr. Feeney and go with me everywhere forever. I love this woman!

narvlarv is more than a teacher; she's a friend. Although she sees people copy study guides, she does not care. This is an entirely college based class: either you learn it or you don't learn it.

Narveson is so cool. I think she hated me because I was absent a lot, but she was still cool. Great jokes and personality. Block was hard, but worth it. c/o 2005

Narveson is the best. Her sarcasm means she thinks you're stupid, but you can crawl your way back up in a year or two. Just don't mix anyone up with Jefferson.
