One of the best teachers you'll ever have. She's knows psychology and the AP curriculum inside out and she's extremely good at teaching the material even if her lectures get a little boring at times. She really cares about you and wants you to learn and has a great personality to boot; I've only seen her get a little strict on some issues and I've never seen her mad.

The class is easy if you do the assigned work, and the assigned book explains things in a way that is easy to understand. At the beginning of the year it took me over an hour to complete the assignments, but it became easier as I am now able to do it in 10-15 minutes.

Would take her class again if I could! Probably my favorite teacher I've ever had!!! She is intelligent and sweet and always willing to help. I could never repay her for all she's done for me and my class. Overall, a wonderful, fun, and enlightening experience. Got a 5 on my AP exam because of her.

Had her in 96 and 98- one of the best teachers I ever had. Inspiring, and tried to open minds and help people. She also headed a class trip to Europe, a memory for which I'll always be grateful.

She is an incarnation of Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter. You occasionally get a glance beneath the candy coating exterior to see the truth within. With this knowledge, you feel as if she is perpetually lying to you. She is ridiculously strict about EVER questioning authority or having any kind of electronic devices out (I am surprised she allows watches). BEWARE!

Very very kooky, but in a good way. Avoid taking her regular class if at all possible. She'll give you the same workload she gives her AP kids. Seems to really like teaching.

For Psych she's ridiculous. She makes you write out 20 page packets which don't help and her tests will have 200 questions. She's boring and makes psych boring.
