Blatant favoritism makes it really hard to excel in her class. She seems to take joy in building up individual students for different parts/roles and then pulling the rug out from under them and giving it to someone else. For a while she did this annually, take some poor girl under her wing and groom her for a part and then give it to someone else. Its heartbreaking to watch, and kind of sickening because its very clear she gets joy out of it. She constantly oversteps what is appropriate.
Honestly, I don't really like her. Her teaching is mediocre at best, she has blatant favorites, and she doesn't really give other students opportunities to stand out. I knew some very talented people that never got the chance to show their talent.
Although Im not one of her favorites she has helped me improve so much.She is blunt and says whats on her mind. Its really upsetting to see how ignorant people are to the amazing skill she has. She is such a talented musician and since she has come to South the choir is one of the BEST. People dont to realize that being the best doesnt just happen, you need a teacher like her.Even though I'm not a "favorite" I can respect a great educator.She challenges us because she sees potential in everyone.
Eccentric, mediocre singing ability, and moody- best 3 words to describe her
she's such an amazing teacher. i've learned so much from her in such a short period of time.
Simply brilliant, classically educated yet still appreciates Jethro Tull, Billy Joel, James Taylor and Jonathan Edwards....PLUS, I'd love to take her to the Prom!
Easily the best teacher at South. I have developed incredible relative pitch due to her class. Choir forever!
i love her. shes the first choir teacher ive had and easily the best. i will never forget what an amazing experience i had under her direction
Omg! I totally agree. I think the best traits to describe her are fake, arrogant, and ignorant. She can also be a bully sometimes-I have personally witnessed this and heard stories.
Pride. likes to think of her choir as a "family" and likes kids that say "i love chapin!". She should have been a salesperson
Her musicality is mediocre, yet she has a great deal of pride. Her personality is not so great. There's not much good to say about her
She has favorites, she is moody. You can tell what type of class ur going to have from the first sec you walk into class. If she's jumping around like a kid, it's a good day. Anything else, good luck.
sure she plays favorites but her class is so fun and she really acts like one of the kids. very playful and comical.great ideas for running a choir. one of my favorite teachers.
She has favorites and it is so annoying that she picks only her favorites and shuts everyone else out in the choir and only makes her favorites the stars whatever and it sort of discourages others in the choir, esp those with talent. You're a great teacher and helps us sing and everything but your personality needs to be more openminded and invovle everyone, not just your favorites. So youre a bad teacher i guess.
Amazing. That's all I can say. Incredible. The best teacher I've ever had.
shes really an amazing teacher. her class is so much fun and we all learn so much from her, although she does occasionaly play favorites. however, choir is my favorite class. where does she gett al her energy???
chapin you rock! you are the best teacher by far! I LOVE YOU CHAPIN!
Chapin we all love you! One of the best chior teachers ever! However you do play favorites. But most of the time you're very cool and really great to talk to.

She chooses favourites, she cant tell who can sing or not,and shes an ok teacher. I think she means well but no,Chapin im sorry but you are a crudy teacher
Omg Mrs. Chapin is probably the best thing that's happened to this choir department. CHAPIN U ROCK!
Awesome to hang out with. Amazing musical director. Easy to talk to. Best teacher I've EVER had.
Wow... What can I say... I had a great year in choir. We improved our singing so much, and had fun too! Chapes, you rock!
You really helped me improve on my singing, go Chapes!!!
