By far the best teacher I've ever had. She was very passionate throughout history. She is also very funny and doesn't pick favorites. I actually miss having her. I learned so much last year. Be thankful if you get her :)

Man, Mrs. Shipman is the best teacher I've ever had. I looked forward to her class every morning. She knows what she teaches and she teaches it excellently. I feel like her classes are structured like college lectures, they have a very laid back atmosphere. You will walk away from her class at the end of the year with a love for world history.

If you get Mrs. Shipman for history, count your lucky stars. Seriously, her passion for history will rub off on you. I absolutely loved her. She's such a sweetheart, her teaching style is great, and she's just a flat out good person. Homework is a little lengthy though. Easy to pass her class if you just do your homework and the review sheets. I hope I get her for AP World next year. I LOVE MRS. SHIPMAN! :)

Mrs. Shipman was absolutely amazing. I had her as a freshman for History and she made it sooooo much fun. I out of the many things I got out of her class the one that sticks out is that: civilization as we know it owes its existence to the proliferation of "substances" many of you can guess what these are.
