Sep 22, 2011 Acts inappropriately with fellow department teachers.. no need to say who.. everyone knows. Brings her personal life to school with her, and mixes it with her professional life. Flag Rating

Jun 09, 2011 Her grading system is unfair and biased!! She plays favorites ! She seems more interested in her personal life at school than she is in her students ~ hence the wardrobe comments! Flag Rating

Nov 01, 2010 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. Flag Rating

Aug 23, 2010 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.

Apr 06, 2010 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. Flag Rating

Jan 23, 2006 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. Flag Rating

Dec 06, 2004 One of the most biased classes i have ever taken. you learn her version of history and nothing else. however, she is a really cool person outside of class Flag Rating

Nov 20, 2004 Nice lady, and she certainly cares about her students, but her class was the easiest waste of time. I didn't learn anything but her personal politics. Flag Rating

May 18, 2004 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. Flag Rating
