Katherine Girvin

4.7 out of 5
4.7 Overall Rating
Based on 58 Ratings

10/15/14 - Like someone already said she really is a hard worker and definetly a leader.I was fortunate enough to be in four of her musicals and sing in her choir for three years. She has never played favorites once.She, just as a buisness owner would, rewards those who work hard. If you worked at a resturant and you could't pull your weight you would be fired, not rewarded. Use common sense. Anyway, if I could say one thing, I'd say thank. You're an amazing person and I'm lucky to have know you. Thank you Show More Show Less

10/14/14 - In regards to the previous coments made about Katherine Girvin, certain legal actions may be taken against the poeple making these comments. The action that should be made is a lawsuit against the two commenters under the charge of slander. And on a more personal note she is the best teacher I have ever come across or ever will and these acusations are nothing more than a petty way to tear down her reputation. Any further slanderous comments made can and will be taken to court. Show More Show Less

10/14/14 - I am shocked at the lengths people will go to lie about this teacher. I actually have been a lead in her show and she told me after I was cast that she had not expected me to be a lead so soon. I simply had a killer audition. it is stupid to assume she doesn't have a "vision" for her shows but I can tell you from personal experience that she does not pre cast. she "favors" the hardest workers. maybe if you stop being lazy for two seconds you might start appreciating her. I feel sorry for you. Show More Show Less

10/14/14 - She is my favorite teacher. She is a leader, not a follower. Overall an excellent worker, as you can see in her choirs and plays, and also an amazing person. She has been a role model in my life and has helped me through very tough times. I hope she finds a job where people actually appreciate all of her hard work one day. Thank you for the amazing times. I look forward to the rest of the year. Show More Show Less

10/13/14 - She is a good teacher. But, I don't approve of her getting so close to all of her students and gossiping about other students and parents. It's also really weird that she hangs out with her students outside of school, it's like she has no real adult friends. That kind of behavior can get her fired. She also yells at her students a lot. She also plays favorites and gives them the lead in plays. It's not fair to the others. Any student that likes her is because she takes them on amazing field trip Show More Show Less

09/15/14 - I had an amazing time in her wheel. I learned so much and had an amazing time. Don't be obnoxious and actually work hard. I also can't blame her for favoriting some students over others, don't expect her to treat your like gold if you misbehave or don't try hard! Again and amazing teacher, it was simply an honor being her student. Show More Show Less

09/03/14 - She is crazy and yells at students. She spends the night at people's homes and sleeps in bed with students. Really weird. She has no friends and hangs out with kids All the time. She tries to play matchmaker with junior high kids too. She has favorites and gives them parts in plays before auditioning other kids. She needs to be fired. Show More Show Less

08/14/14 - Everybody says that she has favorites. And YES. She does. But there is one thing you must understand. SHE ONLY REWARDS THOSE WHO WORK HARD. Simple. And it's not about talent. Like we always say "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." Show More Show Less

01/17/14 - Ms. Girvin is definitely not the average teacher. She has one principle that she never bothers to keep quiet about: anything can be achieved through hard work. She has worked very hard for her students, and she can tell who works hard and who doesn't. She is also very social with her students. She reaches a level of understanding with them that most teachers ignore. Many teachers come to school with ideas for their own personal goals and benefits. Ms. Girvin does the same, but for her students:) Show More Show Less
