She is a very good teacher, although she can seem cold and even a little cruel at first. she is honestly a very sweet and kind teacher. She also teaches very well and explains things thoroughly. Grades harshly, but realistically.

Worst teacher at Syosset. Fortunately, she understands the importance of grades (more for her seniors than freshman) and if she is apathetic about or likes you she won't let you fail (i deserved a B and got an A) but if you are in the large group that she dislikes for no reason she will take off points w/o explanation and you will pray your final grade is within negative 2 standard deviations of your actual grade. Shes views her opinion as fact, based in no human reason, so just nod and agree.

Eager is literally the greatest teacher you'll ever have. She's brilliant and her lectures are amazing. Her classes are so interesting. You will struggle so much in her class but come out with so much knowledge. She is harsh at first but if you get to know her, you'll find out that she's actually really sweet and helpful and just well amazing. I don't know any other teacher that was as interesting as her. Best teacher. Best class.

Great teacher who makes you work very hard to do well in her class but teaches in a way that is so respectable to me that it has totally changed my outlook on school in general. Also, in our class, the way she assigns us documents to read really helps with the DBQs that are to be expected on the AP because they help build up skill in POV analysis over the course of the year that is so hard to master. In short, she is an amazing and one of my favorite teachers.

Not easy to be the minority in a class of superbtight Asian & Indian kids. The class does not have any diversity & she wants you to eat breathe & live World. Forget about all other subjects.

Blatantly plays favorites. I have a low C average in US gov because all she does is show videos and yell at people. Switch out if you have her.

AP World 1 is INSANELY difficult. Be prepared to pull all nighters four nights a week. She prepares you really well for the AP and is more than willing to answer any of the questions you may have. While her answers may be ambiguous because she doesn't want to always help you, she wants you to help yourself, she will help you whenever you ask. Her tests are insane. I got a 13/100 on the first test. Also, if you don't eat sleep and breathe Social Studies, DON'T TAKE AP WORLD 1 YEAR!

wow what a tough teacher. Her class was most stressful of them all. of course, i may not be the smartest. the midterm and final was ok. she prepared us for the ap exam rather well but she has slacked off a bit since earlier years. she expects you to be readily dedicated. you will end up loving your textbook because it teaches you more than her. she teaches you to teach yourself. after the ap exam she gets really nice :D . never admit you were right and she was wrong, or ... yea. good luck!

Quizzes every Monday before she teaches the chapter, 4 paged documents every single night, 30 paged chapter every weekend, high-speed nonstop lectures, tests that may cover 4 chapters, and your first failing grade ever. She's extremely strict in class, but outside she's very sweet. Ms. Eager goes straight to business, no chitchat. SHE WORKS YOU LIKE A DOG, but it all pays off on the AP exam (statement doesn't apply to GPA). SHE'S VERY DISORGANIZED; SHE LOST MY ESSAY, BLAMED ME, & GAVE ME A ZERO.

I'm seeing a fairly wide range of opinions about Ms. Eager so I'm going to clear this up. Ms. Eager is a teacher that expects excellence of her students and has very low tolerance for laziness and whining. She only teaches AP courses and the rigor she teaches with should be a standard for AP teachers. 75% of students in an AP course shouldn't be getting an A and if that's the case there's something wrong with the course or the teacher and generally it's not the course. Suit up or shut up.
