Wonderful teacher, fairly strict, no nonsense but knew when to have fun. Awkward sense of humor, but that made all her lessons more interesting and could really make you understand the people of the time.
And dances a mean Charleston too.

I LOVE MS. KEAN. Im very sad she is leaving. Her workload is quite immense and overwhelming at times, and she is a very jittery and quite unorganized woman. But her genuineness makes up for it. <3

Mrs. Kean is easily the best teacher in Nicolet, along with Mrs. Van Hecke. I worked hard, but learned so much in her class. The people that complain about Mrs. Kean are lazy or don't care, or a combination of both. Hand down, an incredible teacher.

I love Ms. Kean. I had her for Accelerated American History and she was the best. She's a bit confusing, but if you do the homework, she'll love you. I took the AP, which I highly recommend, and got a 3. She really cares about her students. Despite what everyone says, I think she is one of the best teachers at Nicolet.

At first, at the freshman orientation, I thought I wasn't going to like her... but i did. I loved her. I learned a lot. Too bad she retired. I hate the lady who took her place. WEIRD

Very nice teacher. Unfortunately, she assigns meaningless mundane work even at the honors level. You won't find the engaging and mentally stimulating discussions or even assignments in this class. It's back to middle school with the crunch of finding pointless definitions through pages and pages of novels that you won't care to read and words you'll forget after you're done filling in the definition for the last one.
