The only person I've ever met that didn't like her said it was because she was a democrat. Ms Oglesby is not only a great teacher, but a great person. She makes learning fun despite the difficulty. If you like her a lot in class for her personality and her in-depthness, in human rights club, we learn about her opinion on a lot of topics and she helps the club get involved a lot. She is a wonderful person to be around! 10/10
Now that I'm almost finished with an accounting degree, I want to acknowledge the contribution that Shan Oglesby made to giving me a rounded education. Her anarcho-marxist whatever ideas have been stuck in the back of my mind for five years now. During my first quarter in college, and for one of my first assignments, I had to produce an example of a Ricardian competitive advantage table. It felt so wrong. Also, surplus value is a bigger problem than Ms. Oglesby even knows.
Her classes are hard, but she makes up for it by being a stellar teacher who cares about each of her students and their success. If you can handle the rigor of her courses, I highly recommend her.
Her ap classes are not for the faint hearted, but as long as you are willing to take hours for Whap or Ap Euro, her lectures are very interesting and insightful, and her way of teaching forces you to think more. By far my favourite teacher.
An amazing teacher with an incredible knowledge of history. Her class is hard and she doesn't teach to the test but you will learn so much and get a better understanding of the world
She likes to talk about things that are interesting, but not all that helpful in terms of the big test.
Even though WHAP with Oglesby may seem daunting, she makes learning history much more entertaining and clear. You may think she's a hard grader, but everything she does is to make you smarter... Do whatever she tells you to.
Oglesby's ratings may seem scary, but she is by far the most interesting, clever, and compassionate teacher I know. Having taken AP World, AP Euro, and Philosophy (CHID) from her, I know that she pushes her students because she wants us to be brilliant. Oglesby goes over the subject in analytical depth until we are able to draw conclusions on our own. Her class isn't for the lazy, but take her class and you'll receive a quality college-level education and critical thinking skills for life.
One of my favorite teachers. I hate history and she makes me want to listen to the news and read books on past and current events. Makes complicated things much easier to understand and is very knowledgeable.
Best teacher ever! Her class is pretty hard but she is really funny and nice and good at teaching. She even made Pearl Harbor seem funny!
Fantastic course, and an awesome teacher. She got me into philosophy and political science.
One of my favorite teachers at Kamiak. The work is challenging, but it is very rewarding and worthwhile. She has a great sense of humor and is an all around good person.
luv her! she always goes off topic during class, but the bad side about tat is tat we dont get to talk about history/tests/writing prompts well.after 1st quarter, u might fall of the AP conveyor belt.
Killer course, sure, homework everyday and everything--but it is WORTH IT when you think of the wonderful 5 you get on the AP exam, and all the amazing speeches she gives. Favorite teacher EVER.
sure, her lectures may sometimes be irrelevant, but she's for sure one of the best teachers at kamiak. doesn't get mad too easily, and knows the subject well.
probably the most you'll learn about history and current events is from her class. best history teacher and actually helps prepare you for the ap test unlike other history teachers at kamiak.
Hard class, but it's very rewarding. She has a great sens eof humor and teaching style!
coolest teacher ever. biased lectures, but you learn a lot and it's always funny! she will definitely prepare you for ap tests. she loves her seniors. and we have cake.
she's a very good teacher..you really have to have her as a teacher to know what kind of a teacher she is..but i love mrs. oglesby. very hard to get A's though!
while she was a cool teacher, if you are conservative/republican a bit and get offended, i would not recommend her. a full blown liberal, she constantly pokes fun at the other side
Extremely knowledgeable in her subject area, but also very biased and isn't afraid to let it show. However, her class more than any other prepped me for college
most of the time i think her goal is that her lectures will make her students overthrow the government and start a revolution, it shocks her when you talk back
She is the standard stand up comic female. Great philosophy class, owns a duck and is very knowladgable.
Oglesby is probably one of the best teachers I have ever had. She will teach you to think, if you are willing to go on the journey. End of story.
Mrs. O is one of my fav teachers. She is excellent and encourages her students to form their own opinions. She is a great teacher for history and philosophy.
An awesome and very challenging teacher. Liberal, and can try to impose her views on you. Other thatn that, super
Ms. Ois the coolest teacher. She's honest and challenging and fun.
