I failed her AP class but passed honors by the skin of my teeth. I have an excellent understanding of Euro politics now.

It's hard to imagine that some who works me to the bone could be sooo cool. I know the AP will be a joke, after having her. I'm sad that I'm the last class to have her though. She's classic.

Bures is my hero--plain and simple. She loves her students, and I am going to miss her when she finally retires after this year. Working hard is her philosophy, and it seems to work...

A great history teacher when her own personal political biases do not get in the way of teaching (which is very often).

I think Dr. Bures is perhaps one of the best and most devoted teachers out there. She takes time to prepare her lessons, and though some of the assignments may seem ridiculous, they help a whole lot.
