I have the advantage of looking back at a successful 28 year career having been taught by Shelley in both elementary school and high school. I owe my ability to think critically, communicate, write, speak, present, etc... to what Shelley taught me. I still remember the very first words she uttered to the class on the day we met her "Those that ignore the lessons of history ...", and from that day the incredible journey of American and European History, etc... unfolded. Thank you Shelley!
Great teacher for drama but please let me wear my jacket in your class
She is a bully. They're are days where I ditch class so I don't get tourmented by her . Every one is to afraid to stand up to her.
Could be one of the best history teachers i have had in my time in that high school. She is probably the most educated woman i have met and i love sitting in her class. Everyday i have yet to learn the amazing things she teaches and embeds in my brain! Even though she reprimands me and my friends i still think she is an amazing teacher preparing us for the outside world.
she actually is an amazing teacher and person. you guys think that shes mean and unfair. no. shes strict but very fair. everyone complains when they have a teacher who DOESNT teach for the life of them and cry when they realize its a regent class but guess what... were going to actually pass the regents in history all because of her. quit whining and grow up were all in hs just get over your little baby selves, grow a pair and man up.
and know current events.
has got a bad rap. knows everything about everything. love how she makes ppl think. and humiliates the ppl who deserve it (including me sometimes) expects a lot from us and not a particularly good teacher. loves the subject and cares about our growth and education which makes her different and thats why ppl hate her. bc †hey don't know how to handle her.
To call her an intellectual idiot would be insulting to idiots! corrected her on several occasions. F with a 92 avg on my tests b/c she couldn't handle a 17 year old with more brains than her.
She sometimes has interesting things to say, but she is just such a disagreeable person, and she always expects you to read her mind
she might be a little mean sometimes, but if you really want to learn something, shes the techer for you.
she cannot accept the fact that she doesnt know everything
I don't know what you guys are all talking about. Ms. Kaplowitz is one of the coolest teachers in the school and someone you can really talk to about stuff.
She is really a great teacher and I really respect her. She makes great arguments but still allows you to make your point.She is a person I can learn a lot from
I think you are all wrong about her. She is really a nice person and she understands when people have problems. You can also learn a lot from her.
did not teach well-"its all in ur outlines"..spent too much time talking about our ignorance and what we did wrong rather than the material(y we didnt finish)
i think she's one of the best that flatbush has to offer or any skewl for that matter. shes a great teacher and a great actress... yeah dear janet!
Know it all, dominating, but brilliant and interesting
