Well, Mrs. Tash has been through a lot this year and the personality that I faced in Semester 1 is completely different from the Mrs. Tash I am seeing in school. Mrs. Tash has a wonderful and caring personality now just like she used to have. Mrs. Tash is well experienced in preparing High School Students for college. It is a great class to start off with freshman year because she is literally like your mother in IB. She helps you get through freshman year with not many twists and turns.

Her attitude toward me and my son were very hostile. It seems almost as though she always has a chip off her shoulder. During a parent conference with my son, she kept shooting obvious dirty looks at him. I would not recommend this teacher to anyone.

Mrs. Tash is one of the worst teachers I've had to deal with. A student raised his hand to answer a question and got it wrong. She asked him if he had a boyfriend. He said no. She replied with that's why. She told a friend of mine that she should drop out of IB because she would never succeed. She hates guys and is constantly insulting them. If a guy isn't doing okay in the class, he apparently needs a girl to "straighten them out". Mrs. Tash NEEDS to be fired.

I had Mrs. Tash a few years ago and will never forget how she always used to call me out in class. She would bluntly call me out to "get drink of water" because her class was incredibly boring, especially when she forced you to read a book about the Holocaust. She disliked me for the friend group I was in. That caused her to always be watchful of me to a point where she called me out for being "too careful" and precise while I was FOLDING MY PAPER.

Karyn Tash is one of the most difficult teachers I have ever had. Her coursework isn't that hard to follow, but her tests and worksheets are incredibly confusing. She has a short temperament and only tolerates you if you are rich/pretty. She often gave long speeches about how this years IB class is "incredibly hard to work with and can't understand the simplest of curriculum" despite our best efforts. The seniors told us that she says this to everyone. Overall an intolerable woman and teacher.

My experience with Ms.Tash was neither enjoyable nor pleasurable, but I think that she does try to teach in the best way she can. Personally I think it is time for Ms.Tash to take a break and possibly retire because she is usually very hostile towards students due to what I believe is medical issue. Bottom line is that I do not believe Tash is teaching effectively, and while I respect her as a human being she hasn't done anything to earn my respect for her as a teacher.

Mrs. Tash is the most interesting teacher I've ever had. My feelings about her range from loving to hateful, depending on the day. Look, Tash bothers me sometimes, just much as the next person. But guys, seriously. Give her some credit. She's a good teacher. She knows her stuff and has the credentials. People writing super nasty things about her need to remember she's a person too. I think people get so hung up over the one time she pissed them off, they can't forgive her and see she's trying.

Ms Tash shows blatant favoritism and in general is terrible person. She is an elitist snob and will only give good grades to the students she likes. To be fair some of the class was helpful (sat words, essay writing) but she seems to make it her job to make students miserable

Part One If you don't like Mrs. Tash, chances are you claim she has "favorites". Do be honest, you're probably not an outgoing person. She develops relationships with the students that she can - those who are outgoing in her classs. She's not mean to other students, but all she'll say is "oh she's so sweet" about a quiet kid. Mrs. Tash always has the back of the freshman class, as she vouches for them at faculty meetings, sometimes disagreeing with other teachers to stick up for them.

She's a narcissistic b-i-t-c-h who only likes about 4 kids at SPHS. I had her a couple years ago and she didn't like me or hate me; I was sometimes yelled at and made fun of, other times she'd say hi or smile at me.. She never was nice to be around or to me. She made me want to quit IB, but thankfully I didn't. If you can make it through her class, you can make it through anything.

As a former student of hers, I can honestly say that life has become easier now that I don't have her to worry about. She was moody, irritable and just very unhelpful. She would never take the blame if she wasn't specific enough about an assignment. She helped cheaters in the Freshman class last year stay in the IB program just because they were her favorites. What kind of message does that send to students? It's baffling that this woman and her useless class have remained at SPHS.

If you ever want to cheat on tests, stay on her good sides so when you get caught she'll cover you and you won't get in trouble. Happened last year and the people who were caught cheating didn't even get in any trouble all because of Tash.

She's an awful person to be around. She yells and screams at students as well as bosses around fellow teachers. Her work is useless, and her class is a waste of time. The only people saying good things about her here are her precious little Rojians.

She's very direct and biased. She prefers girls, but she picks favorites among boys too. Get her to like you by doing the work right the first time and not being stupid or annoying and you will have a very very easy time the entire year. Great help when it comes to learning about the school and how to get involved, I wish I had done more of the things she said to do.

An enjoyable class but she is very Machiavellian. Uses her class and abuses influence as a teacher as a political forum, (i.e. the time change proposal, the newspaper article about the rojans). Obviously tries to be a favorite. Spends too much time talking about unrelated things. Is too lax, allowing people to go in and out of her room which is very distracting. Fake.
