now that im graduating and think back on my teachers, ms penna has definitely been one of the best. She makes you grow intellectually. she pushes you and makes you form good work habits. She has had the biggest impact on me. He is pretty fair to. Expect loads of work. YEs, you might regret being in her class for that one year that you're in it. but trustt me, you'll be glad you had her years after.

She's a wonderful teacher and loves history but the workload is more than a fair amount.Her strict guidelines and low tolerance for anything besides what she's asking for is a pain

she's the best teacher i've ever had, you'll learn so much more in one day of her class than at an entire year of college. be appreciative and just do your work, EARN your grade.

Ms. Heenan is a good teaher, however, does not go beyond the normal curriculum and is not open to the fact that she may be wrong at times.

why oh why did I only have you for one term? sometimes life is so unfair. You are a great teacher. Perhaps it's because you are young and are able to connect with students that makes you great, but great nonetheless.

I only had her for one term freshman year. I remember she gave A LOT of hw...but if you paid attention and stayed on top of the work, she wasn't too bad. I actually learned stuff in her class and wound up getting a 99 on the global regents.

I wish she would just give more interesting lectures, stop asking obvious questions all the time, and cut the group work. Her group work is a complete waste of time.

Nice teacher, in very possible way. Sometimes her class is boring, especially the group work <-NO ONE TRIES OR CARES. Wish she was more sociable in class though, sticks to class a bit too rigorously. Collects/assigns too much hw/work

i strongly disagree. she believes that she and only she is right. whatever she thinks is true is true no matter what. does not open her eyes to even see someone else's pain and does not bother to help a person out.
