11/01/10 - I find Ms. Shotland to be unprofessional, extremely biased, narrow-minded, and obstinate. She dresses inappropriately for her job and over-exaggerrates her lectures, which leads to loss of her credibility. It is impossible to negotiate anything with her. Her grading system is arbitrary and lacks any real basis. she is one of the worst teachers I've had yet. Show More Show Less

08/23/10 - Her grading was terrible (stupid point system). She plays favortites and sadly she did not like me. :( It is nice though that she gives out lots of candy and cookies, and she makes the class get up randomly to ask them weird, silly questions or do awkward jumping jacks or something.

04/06/10 - she really works to get kids involved and keeps everyone on the same page, but sometimes she teaches students with a left wing bias. some of the information contradicts what i've learned in the past, but all in all she is ther to help a student succeed. Show More Show Less

01/23/06 - She plays favourites with her students, and makes people who have trouble with the class very uncomfortable. Even if you study hard and do your work you can't expect a good grade if you don't agree with her views 100 percent. Asking for help from her doesn't get you anywhere either. Unless you come into the class already knowing almost everything about US history, I feel that you cannot get an A, and you will dread the class every day. Show More Show Less

05/18/04 - Ms. Shotland does not use the text-book in US history just so we get her version and nothing else. Her ferociousness to Republicans causes discomfort. Show More Show Less
