As a psych teacher, she's responsible for a good deal of my psychological trauma. A psych teacher who berates you for having sudden panic syndrome and "not choosing the right time to panic" is a teacher who should be fired immediately. I regret taking her class and so do most of my friends. NEVER TAKE!!

She is really rude. I am normally an all A student and had to study twice as hard to get a B in her class. She does not help and won't even let our class attend other school events if it occurs during her class time. For an elective she asks for way too much.

She is an amazing teacher-do not let others bias you against her. She expects a lot, but really cares about students and helps prepare you for the real world. Make sure to tell her if you will be gone and make up your work quickly. Loved this class!

I love Tjaden. she teaches intro to psych and ap psych in very different ways. she is a lot nicer in her ap class and she is very knowledgeable. her class is so interesting and he stories are funny. when she is stressed she can be a bit rude, she blabs before thinking sometimes, and she comes off slightly crazy. strict with attendance! its better anyways to show up. miss a day and you're lost. she cares a lot about her students succeeding.

I had her psych/soc classes and aided for her. She's not bad, she can be demanding yet she's just prepping you for the real world. She does a lot more for her students than your average teacher.

the Psycology class is really interesting, be prepared to learn a lot. She grades really hard also, this is no easy elective. her college class is also quite challenging.

I don't know what some people are talking about because Mrs. Tjaden is awesome. I never thought I would learn so much in a single class.

1st day of school: "I am not going to bother learning your names because many people drop my class during the first week of school." Typical of her attitude.

Very direct and straightforward about what she wants. A little too picky about her personal wording, etc but overall a fine teacher.

She likes to speak down to and question your intelligence if you don't get an answer correct. I did learn how to think critically though.
