I had her for AP Lang and currently have her in Philosophy. In AP Lang, she barely prepares you for the AP Exam. Barely any of the work she gives comes up in the exam. She crams you two weeks before the exam too. So, you will definitely need to put in some outside time. But, she has an unique and amazing character. In philosophy, she really makes you think and respects everyone's opinion. I'll really miss her.

Mrs. Voss enjoys an unconventional approach to teaching students, using tests to gauge student knowledge before administering lecture. Unfortunately, this unorthodox style is not conducive to a student's learning nor his or her grade. These tests are heavily weighted in the gradebook, which means tests on subjects you have not learned will be used as the primary base of your grade. She enjoys a cynical outlook that commonly obscures clarity as well.
Overall, she can be fairly difficult.

She might be quite intimidating to approach at first, but she actually cares. Although her class may seem like a psychology class most of the time, the vocab tests really help. Only the last ~2 months of the year are reserved for AP review, which actually could just be mostly done with the study book she told you to buy. Her class was enjoyable for the most part. :-)

Ms. Voss is very maternal and kind to every student. She strikes me as an intellectual person who knows how to teach AP English very well and articulate her thoughts on literary works. You ROCK Ms. Voss!!!

I like Ms. Voss, she's nice and caring. Although she gives a lot of essays it's a pretty alright class. You're better off taking AP English with her than get stuck with Ms. Chen.
