Dec 18, 2014 I had her for government. She is extremely smart but a poor teacher. Most of her tests were unnecessarily difficult and nearly never reciprocated the material we were given in class. I learned most of the material on my own time because in class she spent way too much time talking about inside jokes with her prior apush students and her personal life. She always seemed like she wanted to trick or outsmart you rather than help you learn. Very poor experience overall. Flag Rating

Dec 01, 2014 Hansen is one of the best etchers I ever had at MHS. Very nice if you follow her rules. She gives time to mess around and talk, so she expects you to listen when she is trying to instruct. Such a cool teacher. Flag Rating

Aug 27, 2014 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. Flag Rating

Aug 07, 2014 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.. Flag Rating

Mar 11, 2014 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. Flag Rating

Aug 14, 2013 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. Flag Rating

May 22, 2013 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.

Jul 30, 2012 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.

Jan 28, 2012 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). Flag Rating

Dec 15, 2011 Mrs. Hansen is a super strict teacher who knows a lot about what she's teaching, but not about how to teach it. We took notes from powerpoints every day and she went through them so fast that I never used the notes-they were incoherent little bits of uselessness. Also, make sure you never stop taking notes or move or smile or else she will call you out on it every time. If you are shy and quiet, she will probably not like you (like me). If you are talkative, she will love you. Good luck... Flag Rating
