Extremely disorganized, doesn't know what the students are asking, self study is basically on the contract. Tests make no sense cause she tells you to study topics that are not related to the test. Unless you study every night and memorize the textbook, tests will be a problem... but still a kind person at heart.

Shouldn't be teaching an ap class. Maybe she's a good teacher in regular global but an ap class...no. Disorganized, VERY unclear and unhelpful. She's a good person and sometimes I really enjoyed her class and I really enjoyed complaining about her but not an effective teacher. Some of her stories were extremely funny and there were some hilarious moments in her class. And in revolt against her teaching style I felt my peers and I came together. Interesting experience. learn to self study yayayay

Biased. Doesn't teach. Shows a lot of videos. Barely any work, and when she does give work, it's usually at the end of the term so she has grades for you. If you have her for AP, switch out or study every single day. Very disorganized, barely any notes. Almost no homework, and even still, she doesn't check it. Doesn't even prepare you for regents. A joke of a class. Transfer out if you get her. Do it for your own sake later on.

Had no control whatsoever over the class, and didn't teach the last chapter at all; we had to do it ourselves to know it for the final. Wastes a lot of class time on irrelevant stuff.
