Best teacher I ever had, and definitely the teacher that had the biggest influence on how I look at the world today. She was great at playing devil's advocate when discussing issues throughout history and taught me that things are rarely as black-and-white as you might originally think.

Great teacher. In APUS, she is more boring than Evans and Lundy, but does a good job teaching. Very nice, class is pretty easy going and as long as you do all the work you should be fine. Overall,she is a good teacher to have
