One of the best history teachers I've ever had. We clashed a bit in the beginning of the year because of some issues, but once I warmed up to her I realized that she's a phenomenal teacher - her lectures are absolutely amazing. You read the assignment the night before, then come in and have a lecture that fine tunes all of the information and makes everything stick in your head, then you have a rather challenging test or essay on the material. Prepared me SO well for the AP exam.

Susan is by far one of the most organized people I've ever met. Her class has an incredible amount of structure, and she makes it easy to get an A (at least if you're not in AP). The majority of the homework is to read the text (usually about a section or two of a chapter). Some days she won't, but almost every time you have to read the text, she'll quiz you on it the next day. If you read, it's hard to not get a 100%. Extra credit is always an option for tests, and I strongly recommend that.

Mrs. Benson is a great teacher. I had her for AP US and although her class is extremly challenging, she prepares well for the AP exam. Also make sure you do all the extra assignments she assigns consi

I enjoyed Ms. Benson's classes and she really prepares you well for the AP exam. She's a fair grader and as long as you pay attention in class you will do fine on the tests.

The class is a bit challenging, but she's a great teacher for the subject. She grades a bit tough on essays but it will prepare you for the AP exam.

Plays favorites too often, and tries to act like she's still in high school.
