I think she has a lot of knowledge and passion for her subject, but she is completely incapable of conveying it to us. This is the second year she's been my teacher, and I've yet to learn anything from her. She loses my papers, grades my tests incorrectly (she marked 3 correct questions as incorrect on my last test), and forgets my name once a week. Shes such a sweet lady but I truly don't think she should be a teacher.

Didn't enjoy my 9th grade year with her AT ALL. She liked me but I didn't learn much in that class.

The thing about Mrs. Schenker is that as long as you kiss up to her then you will find success in that class. However, if you stay quiet and don't agree with everything she says then you will be super annoyed with the class and all her kiss-ups that constantly talk to her. When we read the book "Night", she constantly talked about her Jewish experiences with one other kid in the class and everyone else had to listen for an hour. DO NOT RECOMMEND. RUN WHILE YOU CAN.

She is an awful teacher who forgets things on a regular basis. She has messed up all of my friends grades through her inability to use the computer. She doesn't respond to emails nor consistently available after or during school. She might be knowledgeable on grammar, but her ability to teach is ,well, let's say lacking. She is very biased towards her favorites, whom are usually girls All in all, if you get her transfer out as soon as physically possible.

Ms. Schenker was a teacher that consistently exhibited short term memory and loss of homework. Usually the decree was that students were always at fault and that the problem had to be reasoned out despite the loss of evidence.

Her grading scale is completely ridiculous and her idea of "easy and fun" far differs from our's. She loses assignments, doesn't curve when many people fail. She has no idea how to teach this generation. I have a C in this class because of lost assignments and poor grading scales.

I got a B in her class. I did less then half the assignments and walked around class during tests and quizzes to get answers. Probably the easiest class ever, but I didn't learn a single thing.

She's so boring. You never do anything in class. She loses all of your work and there's always mistakes on your progress reports...that is. If she even gives you a progress report.

Always loses your work, and when you continue to give in copies she ignores them then at the end of the quarter puts in all F's for everything she's too lazy to grade always drooling on her computer.

She chooses favourites and she's not a very good teacher. But she's nice enough easy to manipulate.

Didn't learn a thing in that class. not qualified to teach Pre-IB. makes up tons of excuses as to why she doesn't have your work. Just get your parents to complain and you'll get a good grade.
