Best teacher I ever had during my time in the public school system, never had a teacher care so much and put in so much effort that it propelled students into working harder out of respect. More qualified than some college professors I've had and creates a safe space to talk about things that are normally put under hush hush by other teachers.

Very nice woman with great intentions, always keeps students involved and thinking which I loved. However, she often spoke about topics-Economics/ Philosophy- which she clearly did not understand on objective terms, and thus promoted the works of Marx with a clear bias against Capitalism whiteout having correctly defined it.

Her exams/quizzes are pretty difficult, but she's one of the best teachers I've ever had. She's lenient about some things, and she's the best sophomore teacher out of all of them. I had fun in her class, and she was always excited, even in 1st period

Her class is challenging, but keep mind that it is an honors level class. You want to hear what she says and had infinite respect for her students. She honestly cares about all her students and just wants the best for them. If you plan on taking Humanities it is imperative that you have an open mind and an interest in the arts. You can get easily get an A in the class if you do all the extra credit. This is in amazing class and I urge everyone to take it.
