Nov 20, 2014 She is an amazing leader and prepares her students not only for choir events but also life events like having bosses and having a job. She teaches us to work hard. She listens to students and is very kind and understanding. She taught me a lot about music and gave me so much confidence through all of her love and support :) Ms. Girvin is a wonderful person and an even better teacher! I love her and anyone who says anything bad about her is wrong <3 Flag Rating

Nov 13, 2014 Ms. Girvin is an amazing teacher. She cares for all her students and is kind, loving, and caring. And whoever doesn't think that is probably some lazy ass princess that is jealous of the people who actually practice and do their job and get rewarded. Flag Rating

Oct 15, 2014 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 Flag Rating

Oct 14, 2014 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. Flag Rating

Oct 14, 2014 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. Flag Rating

Oct 13, 2014 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 Flag Rating

Sep 15, 2014 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. Flag Rating

Sep 03, 2014 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. Flag Rating

Aug 14, 2014 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." Flag Rating

Jan 17, 2014 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:) Flag Rating

Jan 17, 2014 A lot of people may say she plays favorites, but the thing is if you think like this you're probably just really lazy. Of course she would favor the students that actually work hard. The people who say she is unfair, are just lazy, ignorant, pompous, dimwitted, and just jealous of the people that actually work hard in her class. If she was so unfair and mean to her students why would she have 300 students in her class and why would she take trips with the students? She's amazing. We love her!!! Flag Rating

Feb 18, 2013 her class is SUPER HARD. (5 stars for easiness means very hard, not the other way around). I should acknowledge though that she is really really dedicated and talented at what she does, but I had to quit choir because there was so much pressure. But, if any of you can handle the pressure, then you should join choir because she really knows how to make a choir really excellent, and going on the trips to disneyland and beyond is really rewarding. but only if you're up to the challenge!

Aug 15, 2012 ms.girvin is AMAZING. anyone who thinks of her poorly is WRONG. she is just like a best friend to all of her students and teaches them the goodness in life through music. anyone who downgrades her beauty and talent should get an appointment with their local therapist. she is loved.. has been loved. and always will be loved.. by her students.. did i mention that we all love her? love, her favorite students <3 Flag Rating

Aug 13, 2012 If you think Katie Anne Girvin is anything less than extraordinary, you're wrong and stupid. You need to get your priorities straight and get your head out of your rear end. She has taught all of us so much and even made us good enough to be invited to New York and sing at Carnegie Hall. We're awesome. She's awesome. You, sir, whoever put up a bad review, you are not awesome. Just think about that. Parents have also commented frequently on how much better their children's grammar is as well :) Flag Rating
