I absolutely love Ms. Solomon. She brought my global history class to life by helping us apply history to the real world and by sharing her stories/personal experiences. She's one of those teachers who gets you to think outside of the outline of the textbook and encourages you to form your own opinions. Considering I hated my history teacher last year, this year was a pleasant surprise. I've become a lot more involved in reading about current events and found an interest in politics as well.

shes an okay ap euro teacher. she talks about her life a lot which is fine, i feel i learned a lot about european history. i ended up getting a 4 on the AP and a 94 in the class. if u do well on the tests, which are pretty hard i would say, u can get a good grade. she tried her best to give everybody good grades. shes a friendly and helpful person too

She is one of the most knowledgeable (and funny) teachers at tech and she knows what she's doing. Her lectures are NOT like any other history teacher's (thank goodness), she won't use the overhead or powerpoints-she'll actually hands on approach ur questions and she'll provide you with the best info to copy down. she's amazinggg and im going to miss her. the only con? for ap euro there's only 5 days of review in her class so don't expect to pass the exam w/o reviewing yourself.

Beyond a great teacher. An angel of sorts. Really understands the students. And I mean REALLY understands them. She will do whatever it takes to get the info. into your head. If you have her for freshman year, REALLY consider taking AP Euro. She's the ONLY Euro teacher. I ended up with a 4/5 on the AP Test and a 98 on the Regents.
