Never before in my 18 years as a student in the public school system have I met a teacher as incompetent, unprofessional, and just downright lazy as Janet Croon. Whether it`s waiting until the end of the quarter to tell you your grade or simply not administering a benchmark test because she simply "didn't feel like it."
-No consistency
-No study materials
-Claims her health problem prevents her from completing her duties (i.e. grading papers)
-Tenure is the only thing keeping her hired

I cannot express in words how horrible this teacher is. She is rude, she is strict, and she is horrible at teaching and keeping track of papers. She lost a notebook I had been doing assignments in through the year, lost of work went into it and I submitted it and nothing, she said she would return it and then told me she didn't know where it went.
She is irresponsible and talks about her daughters way too often.

Doesn't teach anything at all the whole class and then expects you to find out about the homework yourself and doesn't let you know about it at all. Every test is basically a pop quiz because she doesn't tell you when they're happening and she also is rude if you don't do something right. Had her freshman year and made history my least favorite subject. I legit liked math more...

I don't think she knew what she was teaching us half the time! Like she'd bring up one thing and then reword it into a fumbled mess and it was just horrible. I honestly would switch out if you have her. She basically makes you learn on your own with stupid 10 page packets and stupid essays, like me and my friend literally sat there the whole time half the time or I'd sleep.

She's nice and she's knowledgeable, but she can't teach. You will learn more about her daughters than history.

The worst teacher. I have learned literally nothing in that class. She assigns assignments without informing the students, and relies on past lesson plans and inaccurate powerpoints to teach. Horrible

She moved through the little information she gave too fast, then assigned truckloads of busy work. That, and the interactive notebook made for an unenjoyable class. One word to describe - pumpkin.

Croon is, like Burkett, a very nice person... but she can't teach. At all. I learned absolutely nothing in that class, and I aced the IB exam PURELY with what I learned from Warstler. Not IB worthy
