Absolute savage. Really hard in class, but one of the funniest and most down to earth people you will ever meet. Totally worth taking her class regardless of the grade.

Ms. Mulligan has changed my life. She is my teacher and my friend, and she is sarcastic as all hell, but if you can keep up, you'll be rewarded with more knowledge than you can ever have imagined, and some of the best advice anyone can ever give you. If you take her class and are disappointed, it is simply your loss.

Fell in love with the Andover history department because of this woman. She is dynamic, hilarious, and a child at heart. YOU SHOULD NOT LEAVE ANDOVER WITHOUT MEETING HER.

She is the best!!! Makes the class super interesting. Super funny as well. As long as you read all the assignments, the class isn't too tough. Be prepared to write a fair number of essays though. Overall a great class! I can't wait to take some of her electives!!

Such a great history teacher. I don't even like history but her class was one of my favorites at PA. If you are half decent at writing and pay attention in class, you can get a 5 pretty easily.

I liked her a lot. Funny in a sarcastic sort of way. I hate history, but I didn't mind her class. She also really tries to make class not boring, so you do a lot of different activities. Definitely knows her stuff. Not the easiest teacher, though.

You will never have another history class as well thought-out and with as much good material as Mrs. Mulligan's. She is full of spunk, and compiles binders for each student full of scans and articles from a miriad of sources. A though grader, but by far the best history teacher at PA.

Mulligan is a really good history teacher. Class is always fun and there's a lot of learning going on. The second you become bored in class, you basically miss a whole lesson. Be ready to take notes!!

She is a ridiculously hard grader, and usually the assignments being graded were far too broad and seemed thrown together in a minute. She did not seem devoted.
