Love, love, love Hirota! Though she was unclear about instructions sometimes and would tell us to read a whole book for next class, I loved her as a person. Very knowledgeable in history and dancing! We love you Hirota!

She's getting old. She forgets things she taught and then continues to give tests on it. She's helpful if you prod enough and she is nice, but she's very unclear with her instructions and tests are pretty tough.

I've had her for a few weeks, and I'm dropping her class (to regents) because she doesn't explain anything. I'm trying to do well, but I literally do not know what the homework is. This class is awful. Helpful hint, her tests are worth the same as her homeworks, so you have to do them.

such a smart lady and a great teacher. her class is hard but you HAVE TO do your homework. she might be better as a Japanese history professor because of her vast knowledge on the subject but still she's pretty chill.

How could you dislike Hiroro???? Yeah her class is hard, but you should be trying because she teaches you a lot. Plus she's probably the cutest, sweetest woman you will ever meet on this planet. You just have to do the work and realize that yeah, it's gonna be hard, especially if you're in AP Global. But she's definitely one of the best teachers I have ever had

Mrs. Hirota-Morris was AMAZING!!! I had her for AP Global, it was a wonderful class. Yeah, it was a lot of work sometimes, with three chapters of the textbook per night, but I miss her kindness and her discussions now that I'm in AP US History :(

Hirota was definitly my favorite teacher of all time. I loved all of her classes and she made all of them so much fun. There was never a boring class. She really made me want to work hard for her and I felt like when I got a bad grade i was letting her down. I really miss her and am so excited that she is starting the AP Human Geo next year. I am taking it just cause she is the teacher.
