Ms. Refkin is the best English teacher I have ever met. She can be kind of funny at some times but she also knows when to "lay down the law." Her hard work has led me to be a better writer and class is never boring! She knows when we're talking in class or doing something wrong but almost never cass you out; she'll just kind of move towards you as if she wants to hear what we are talking about, which effectively puts a stop to the talking. 10/10 would recommend.
she can be kind of condisending to the people who she thinks are not smart when ever I try to answer a question I says and she just moves on to the next one. When she calles on the people she likes she engages with them
She was my English teacher when I was at Hunter in 8th grade and then for my senior project. She was amazing. Really supportive and creative and helped me pursue my dreams to become a writer and filmmaker. She's the best.
hate her so much because she plays obvious favorites and is really condescending to those she doesn't like
one of the best teachers and mentors i have ever had. she is a kind, low-key, brilliant and fun woman and, frankly, everything a high-school english teacher should be.
I had her for AP Lit and I enjoyed the class.She may not be the most outrageous teacher but she's nice and runs a good class.Awesome lady!
I do not like Ms. Refkin as a teacher, she can be very obnoxious to people that she doesn't like, and it ruins the class. I can say about the same thing for Ms. Alviar too.........
nice, easy to talk to & approachable, knows what she's talking about. loves to teach. doesn't pick favorites, but she'll like you if you pay attention, do the work, and say good stuff. she's cool ^^
One of the best English teachers in this school. Love going to her classes.
Ms. Refkin is a very insightful teacher. Her tollerance for BS is very low, although her acceptance of her students and her love of teaching make her a saint.
I love her as a teacher. Balanced in every way --open to different views, not too hard or too easy grader. She's also willing to set aside and help you 1 on 1
Ms. Refkin was a wonderful English teacher who was essential in the development of my writing style. Now that I teach English, I'm using a lot of her techniques
she's very nice. but the whole mets thing just ruins her coolness.
