Mrs. Schaefer really has a knack for getting students interested in economics and government. She is extremely knowledgeable and approachable, and made a huge impact on me in high school. I took We the People with her and Mrs. Maddox (another amazing teacher) and served as her student aide my senior year. She cares about her students and is always there to lend an ear, no matter what their concerns are.
Former Student. Schaefer was in my Top 2 favorite teachers. She challenged me, taught me more than I realized, inspired me, and was a hell of a WTP and Scholars Bowl coach. It was an honor to have her as a teacher.
Just an awesome teacher. Not strict at all, knows a TON about what she's talking about. She's also pretty entertaining to listen to, like no other. Great way to start my morning.
Best teacher I've ever had-- She's incredibly smart and helpful. She's almost always available after school and is willing to help anyone who doesn't understand the topic--she's very devoted.
Best. Teacher. Ever. Haven't even had her yet and I think that.
One of the most Influential teachers at Vestavia and Alabama as well. Her great education combined with her enthusiastic and "no baby talk"for teaching AP Gov/Econ makes her one of the best teachers.
one of the best, rating explains, and you guys spelled the name wrong i had to spent time to find this
im in her class right now! i love it! its my favorite class ive ever had. im gonna miss her/her class when i go to college next year..she's very intelligent and well informed
I'm one of her former students, now in college. I remember Shaffer as being one of the most intelligent teachers in the school, and certainly one of the best teachers I had.
She is so incredibly smart. I don't know a single person who has her and does not fall in love with her class. We renamed her son Jim.
The only teacher that i actually feel bad about not doing my homework for
Mrs. Schafer is SOO cool!! You really teach well and I learn a lot from you..and really smart too!!
Mrs. Shaffer is the best thing that ever happened to VHHS! You learn about anything and everything her class including Gov/Eco! Keep on teaching,you'r da bomb!
Could a teacher be any smarter? (don't think so). I stay up to date with politics cause of her class =)
Talk about a beautiful mind! My Hero!! She is amazing and keeps us all up to date on our personal political intrests. Though the budget project was hard, it was very rellevant and helped me understand money. All hail!
WOW this lady is smart!!! She is a great lady and knows what she is talking about!!!
