If she wasn't focused on befriending all of the soccer and volleyball players, she might actually be a good teacher. I had her twice and barely passed, despite the fact that English is my strongest subject. She would blatantly pick on the less popular students in the classroom. You could tell she brought all of her own insecurities when she downright cried and took it out on our class for half a year after she broke up with her boyfriend. She needs to grow up.
Ms. Dolan is a very fun person and ran a fun atmosphere, however, I felt that she played favorites and didn't know how to maintain balance. One day, we'd have a rambling discussion about gender roles, and the next, an impossible pop-quiz about details in a story that don't matter whatsoever.
Mrs. Dolan is a tough teacher to rate. She clearly has her faults, but she also has a few redeeming qualities. If you know everything about grammar, spelling, sentence structure and punctuation, you'll do fine. If you like to knit pick the details of every novel you read, you should be able to pass her pop quizzes. She's funny and interesting, but her friendship with students can often interfere with her ability to teach. She's the leader of Spirit Club with good reason.
I love Mrs. Dolan. Although we talk a lot in class she tries very hard to help us out. If you go in to talk to her one on one she is REALLY helpful!
She plays favorites-- watch out if your not one of those
She's typical new and young. But she's real, down to her fallible moods and misplaced enthusiasm. Should try to curb playing favorites, though.
Ms. Dolan is a very good teacher, she knows what she's talking about, she grades fairly.. not all STA classes will be easy A's. She relates to her students well
dolan's alright. she sometimes ignores people. She definitely favors seniors< which i guess is understandable oh well! she"s pretty nice overall
I love Ms. Dolan. Whoever has something bad to say about her clearly does not know her at all! She is SO funny and such a great person! I love her!!
Dolan needs to grow up. She's supposed to teach us, not judge us by our race, handicap, or lack of rhythm. Please please read the school motto!
ms. dolan is awesome! don't listen to anyone else. they are all just trying to be sweeeet. you are the best.
she was nice sometimes but increadable short tempered at others. even if shes talking to some student about her weekend shell yell at u 4 the same thing.
I luv Dolan- she is so awsome- i love ging to her room for actvites and frees cuz she is so nice to talk to and always makes u laugh
She does have favorites and i wished i didn't have her for 2 years of my life. Too bad she doesn't teach us engish and grades to hard!
Ms. Dolan, I think you are great! Thank you for all you do!
I feel dumber going to this class. We do nothing. It's a waste of my time.
Dolan rocks!! She is a good teacher, so stop slacking and maybe you'd see that! I heart you K!
what the heck...she complains about how other people type..but I am yet to read a paper of hers that doesn't have more than 20 errors...hmmm you teach what??
I had dolan one year, and requested not to have her again, i feel like i deserve one sixth of my tuition back from that year. she's just a babysitter
MS. DOLAN ROXZ MY SOCKS! To all those haters, it's just because you're slacking and don't do your work!! Sure My Antonia was boring...but GREAT GATSBY..HOLLA!
I had Dolan for 3 years, that is the almost the whole of my high school career. She was extreemly unhelpful,i learned nothing. i took electives just to learn
oh come on shes not that bad. but i guess thats because shes nice to me..shes a.o.k. in my book.
dolan is rude and mean,she reminds me of a 4th grade bully selecting certain people to talk to and let into her room. dolan has made me cry before. live the 4th
Ms D is one of the best teachers at STA. She truly cares about her students.
She has always been willing to help me and is an all around nice person
Picks favorites...hard to scale...it was easy enough.
I wish Katie Dolan would teach every class I ever take
