A wonderful person and knowledgeable teacher, but her grading policy is asinine. She gives students 4/10 on essays for not wording it the way she said in class. Also she gives everyone the same participation grade. If more than 75% of the class fails an exam, you should reevaluate your grading policy :-)

Probably the best teacher in the school honestly. She knows her stuff and knows how to teach it. She makes history fun and easy to learn. She's so funny and personable and kind and she loves her job which makes you love coming to class.

Her lessons really get at how the government works and ties in current events well. Sadly the tests and quizzes don't test the material she teaches in class and instead focus on the readings. If you want an A in AP GOV, just bring your textbook in and read that in class instead. It's unfortunate that there is a disconnect between lessons/paying attention and getting a good grade. However, she is very nice and accommodating. Also, I find her funny. It's a question of taste, and how bad your grades are.

It's pretty obvious that Mrs. Salvin amuses herself pretty easily, but she can also be pretty moody and weird. She needs to lay off the jokes and actually teach something for a change.
