Nothing good to say. Mean woman. Let's just say I had her 19 years ago and I was compelled to search her on this and give my opinion.

She is really smart and knows EVERYTHING about history, but she doesn't give clear instructions EVER and gives two different versions of the homework, one in class and one online. She grades really harsh. She used to teach only AP/Honors classes and now she teaches a CP, so it's a ton of work for people who didn't sign up for it. She's pretty unfair a lot of the time and a little all over the place, but it's an interesting class and she challenges you to prepare you for college.

She was an extremely good teacher. She teaches well, but she can be a hard grader, but I suppose that makes us better. She is very nice, but just don't slack off in her class!

Not easy. But we do learn a lot. She could stop acting like an English teacher. Overall not a bad teacher.

Has a lot of knowledge but has a difficult time clearly communicating exactly specific ideas and points. This makes it hard in figuring out what she wants.

Difficult class.... WHAT IS WITH ALL THE TESTING?? She doesn't seem to realize that we understand when the topic is discussed.. not when it is tested on

While she is very nice, she can be slightly unmerciful. It is hard to stay on top of things in her class as she moves very quickly but doesn't acheive much.Obviously enjoys history though, she needs to be a bit less harsh when grading. better suited 4 hon
