08/27/14 - One of the worst teachers I have ever had, does not teach anything in class, instead she has us go home and learn it ourselves. Its called being a teacher for a reason. Show More Show Less

08/07/14 - Her classes, all of them, are ridiculously difficult, super strict, no smiles, felt like educational prison. Class consists of daily notes, homework = essays....all day every day. NO SLACK. 2nd semester is easier if you survive 1st.. Show More Show Less

03/11/14 - She is a difficult teacher, but her biggest issue is how strict she is. She filed sexual harassment on some of the smartest and nicest kids in my class (over a joke!) to prove a point; not caring about how he she may have ruined their futures. Show More Show Less

08/14/13 - Great for entertaining lectures and she really prepares you for the AP test, but she barely teaches you how to write for her and it becomes an annoying trial and error process. Her readings are awful and pointless, and she gets off topic a lot and it made her do 3 decades in a week once, but she would get extremely angry at anyone who would ask her to not digress so much. She has a really bad temper too, and would get angry at kids for seemingly minor things such as being late. Show More Show Less

05/22/13 - In all honesty, my APUSH class this year tarnished my love of History. She is extremely "elitist" and will stick her nose up at you any chance she gets. She will grade you based on how much she likes you, regardless of how hard you may work on something. Falsely accuses students, and straight up is one of the most wishy-washy teachers at McIntosh.

05/02/13 - Amazingly entertaining lectures, but she gets off topic very often and by the end of the year she had to rush through 3 decades, and if anyone ever mentioned that she gets off topic too much, she would get so angry. Many of her readings are convoluted and awful, and you're kind of own your own in learning how to do FRQs for her. You learn a lot about History while being entertained, but you will also suffer many headaches and angry rants to people. Show More Show Less

07/30/12 - Wasn't that hard of a teacher to be honest. As for note taking, she has her study guides online and you just write down whatever's not on the study guide when she shows the powerpoint in class. Also with bring your own technology, keeping up with her was fairly easy. FRQ's and DBQ's are hard, but tests have a fair curve. Projects are kinda demanding. Other than that she's not that bad.

02/05/12 - She went through notes so fast that by the second week I gave up and just started writing down random words or phrases from the power points so she wouldn't call me out on not taking notes (which she will if she catches you). Her readings were long and usesless and took up a lot of ink and paper from my printer. But I did like that she really did prepare you for the ap test, which I did surprisingly well on. Other than that she has a HUGE temper. She really acts childish when she gets angry Show More Show Less

01/28/12 - Mrs. Hansen is a great teacher who is concerned with the success of her students. It is the hardest A I have ever earned, but I have learned so much from her. But be careful because "beatings will continue until morale improves" (It's a pirate saying). Show More Show Less
