One of the best teachers I have ever had (Only had her in APUSH) class is really fun and hilarious. Homework/notes can be overwhelming but I think it is definitely worth it, also I am taking Legal H next year!

should retire. Weird curriculum and does not handle social situations very well. Teachs legal like I am in elementary school. Probably better off in a middle school environment.

By far my favorite teacher! She is incredibly knowledgeable and will truly teach you a lot. (Hint: Ask her about sidecar racing.)

She teaches well, but probably too much work even for AP US. Funny and pokes fun of her students in a jokingly manner. Good preparation for the test i guess.

I've been in her class for two years too (AP U.S. and Legal) and she is the coolest teacher I've had yet. Can be a little unfair but can't they all.
