I had Ms. Jay for AP Psych. She was really awesome. She keeps a really cool demeanor so you can't tell when she's pulling psych tricks on you, but it was a lot of fun. I really didn't know how much she cared about our class until she was in tears saying goodbye to us on the last day of school. For AP Psych, the AP test was our final, so that was cool.

You learn most of the material through the textbook (AP Psych), so it's okay if you miss a class. It doesn't really stress you out, and Ms. Jay is super cool as a person, so discussions will be interesting if your class participates.

I'm uphalled by the sub par ratings for Ms Jay. I had her for two courses and can confidently say she does not play favorites and is also a great teacher. I know she will take extra steps to help you, but you have to be willing to help yourself. With that said, if you are the type of student that "flies under the radar." Yes, you are not going to get a decent grade if you are not trying to participate in class.

I had her class for psychology(regular) and she is a really nice teacher. Though she does make you do lots of notes (dont do it the night before lol trust me and everyone else that has) the class is really fun and easy. You learn lots of stuff in that class as well. :)

She's great. She knows what you're thinking, knows what you're doing next. Amazing. Wonderful. Mellow and chill teacher. Kind of lost sometimes, but still very influential.

She favors and is unfair. If you are on her good side then expect an a, but if you're not then I feel sorry for you. Her class can be easy if she likes you.
