I'm a 2012 grad, but I think Mejia deserves this praise: even to this day, I have used the concepts I learned in her AP Psych class in every interaction I've had with others. She knows her material and did her best to ensure her students knew it too.
An excellent teacher in AP Psychology; she knows all the material, and really does help you prep up for that AP Test better than Middleton. She has a final exam, unlike Middleton, however, but that only goes to prove her desire to encourage all students to study up! She is definitely the most patient, considerate, helpful and even elegant teacher I've ever had in my nearly 4 years of High School! Keep up the great work, Mejia! We love you! (I got a 4 on the APP Test!) <3
One of the most thoughtful teachers in the campus! She's extremely well-versed in Psychology, and although her tests and assignments can prove to be challenging, she definitely preps you for the AP Exam. Trust me, it'll all pay off ( I passed it - thanks Mrs. Mejia! ) :D
Just stay awake, be respectful, read the book at least thrice to fully understand every concept - it doesn't take long if you do it by the assigned portions - and don't procrastinate for a good grade. ;)
Her class is "alright" to be honest. It's probably what you would expect from an Advanced Placement kind of class. Her tests are pretty challenging... you REALLY have to understand the concept - simply reading from the book probably wont help, unless you do all the homework and constantly ask questions, especially about the practice tests. I would suggest that her homework points be worth at least 3-4 PER assignment, not merely 2.... Some assignments ARE worth a lot of effort not to mention.
Best teacher ever!!! Even though she can get a little boring at time... but maybe because it's 6th period when every one is tired :}
Your grade is based on tests and participation pts is like 1/4th of grade Especially hard to stay awake in her class ): , never do anything actually interesting (well on occasions we do experiments), but most of the time its
Mrs. Mejia is an AWESOME TEACHER! By far, one of the best teachers I've ever had. She's very understanding and passionate about what she teaches, and she really looks out for you. I loved her!
Very caring and knowledgeable teacher! She knows what she's teaching and recognizes your efforts which really helps. Definitely one of my favorite teachers after taking her class. Reading listening=A
We won't forget you and how much fun you made both Chemistry H and AP Chemistry (with your random appearances). You were really a lovable teacher and I'll miss you. Rest in Peace
I'm going to miss you Ms Megna! You were truly an amazing teachers. I'm never going to forget all the fun we had last year Rest in Peace <3
Rest in Peace. We will miss you as our Chemistry H teacher during high school. Good memories. 2010
Hardly gives out any points and relies too heavily on participation - which is WAY too overrated in her class. Straight As/Bs test scores amounts to almost a C with a bad participation score.
Tremendously patient teacher - very understanding and empathetic. She explains psychology very thoroughly with exceptional comprehension - anyone who said her lectures were boring doesn't deserve to be in her class!
I can definitely tell she loves and cares about every one of her students. Just because she is quiet and old a lot of kids take advantage of her and put her down. But she still maintains her cool and teaches just the same.
She only likes the people who sit in front of her projector! (e.g: Rohan and the other guy, or Stephanie and Kelly). She is a bit intimidating, although it may not seem like it!
She's very sweet. Sure her lectures can get a bit...boring, but she really does help to understand the material. She taught me well for psychology - I passed with flying colors :) Her work can get tedious however.
I Love Ms. Megna! She plays favorites, but she really reaches out to everyone.
so i had this teacher in the past, and honestly she plays favorites, she gives you an attitude for no reason, pays attention to specific people, and isn't always ready to provide extra help at a different time if asked for
Ms. Megna's class is actually pretty easy. I don't get how people say her test is not like the homework. I did all the homework and when it came to the tests, I didn't really need to study at all.
A teacher worth having in your high school experience...
i think shes an okay teacher. i think people complain because there not use to ap classes or there just lazy. she knows her stuff. you just have to work hard do the stuff
She knows her psychology, I'll tell you that! Talk to her if you have any problems. She listens. Very compassionate. Class is sometimes boring, but I mean, she prepares us well for AP.
Megna is probably the one of the nicest and most fun teacher to be with as a person. But when it gets to teachsing her notes barely help you, so if you're very lazy. I guess you can just skip it.
i have this teacher this year and i think she is nice however her lectures r soooooooooooooo boring and itd be nice if shed speak up and offer some MORE extra credit....like seriously
Mrs. Mejia really really cares about her students. I think that's a characteristic that she has that not a lot of other teachers have. Even though she may be really hard to hear, she still gives her 110% in everything she does. I really appreciate her for everything she's done for us! Oh! And HAPPY TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK!
i love her class. mrs. mejia is such a great teacher. she makes lectures so understandable that all you have to do is listen and pay attention and you'll understand the material. maybe a little bit of extra credit would be nice, but i think she prepared us for the ap test very well. even if we sped through some of the last chapters, it's only because she wanted us to really understand the previous chapters so that we would know it on the ap test.
class is great but some extra credit should be offered so that students would be able to raise their grade
great teacher really helps understand the material, but points are real hard to come by and i think some extra credit should be offered.
she's really nice and helps alot by taking you step by step, but for the past 2 months we've been racing through chapters and sometimes we're lost. it's just test, test, test. ):
Great Psychologly (AP) teacher! I had her my junior year. I started off with an F but raised it up to a B! Anything is possible =)
(AP Psychology) Ms. Mejia is a very nice teacher; however her grading system is not suitable to most of the students in which few points are offered. It's sad to put the responsibility on her but it would be nice to have more points because sometimes a student just can not have motivation without a better grade. I would recommend daily assignment, group quiz( as we had before), and much more opportunities for every student to participate ( in which people often argue that "How can I have fewer points?"
well i think she is a nice lady but her class is not easy. she needs to give students more points so we can have more chance to get our grades up.
mrs. mejia teaches well with helpful materials; however her class is filled with tests and quizzes on the materials so quickly. With the great amount of only tests and quizzes it is difficult to recieve an A in that class. Although there are homework points and project points that will be inserted at the end of the semester, i think that mrs. mejia should give us a percentage boost at the end of the semester like the other ap classes because for many ap psych students, this is their first year taking an AP
Megna isn't the best teacher but nice...BUT she plays favorites a lot. notes are okay but sometimes they don't help for the hw and tests/quizzes. her quizzes don't prepare for the test at all, neither does the hw.
She's a very good teacher, but please do something about the student's grades...like extra credit...her class is fun and all but the way she grades her assignments are pretty difficult...and not just me for me but as well as others!!
i loved the group activity that we did today about the fallout shelter, it was really fun and also i noticed the terms that we learned in class taking place during the activity and helped me understand it even better
ok. i love miss mejia but i really wish she was more enthusiastic about her classes, maybe is she did more expierments to show the class how certian things work, because her soft spoken voice and boring lectures just make you want to go to sleep, but she is nice and respectfull teacher, just needs to boost it up a bit.
Okay, mrs Mejia. IN ALL SERIOUSNESS YOU MUST RAISE YOUR VOICE. I CAN BARELY HEAR YOU IN THE BACK. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE TALK LOUDER SO I DONT HAVE TO STRAIN TO HEAR YOU. So many ppl have been complaining about your soft voice, maybe that is why you get so many students that get 1s and 2s on the AP tests. Talk more loudly and you will see ppl get more interested during class, for real. Maybe now you will get more 4s and 5s if you talk more loudly.
she isnt the best teacher, but she is a nice person...if you are her favorite. JUST TRY TO SIT IN THE FRONT and talk to her a lot! she DEFINITELY plays favorites a lot! her hw is usually easy, but the notes are very unclear. and the tests are VERYYYY DIFFERENT FROM THE TESTS AND NOTES! the finals, however, are pretty easy ... if u study.
What to say about such an tremendously insightful teacher? I strongly believe that teachers who don't often resort to yelling are the ones that seemingly the most respected, and Mejia is a prime example of this. I had her for AP Psych two years ago, and because of the clarity of the subject and coherent teaching abilities of Mejia, I am now more than ever contemplating Psych as a major in college. I'm very thankful that I let her know how much she impacted me before I graduated.
this class was my hardest and most frustrating class ever. shes very unclear. her notes are different than the homework. and the homeworks are 100% different than the test. which makes em really really hard. the only easy tests are the finals. plays favorites from like day 1. she doesnt like helping people except the people that she likes. she'll tell you to go ask someone else. be friends with her favorites lol. then she'll start talking to you. it worked for me
Plays favorites alot, and isnt good at finding another way to teach. you pretty much have to teach yourself if you're lost
ms. megna plays favorites "too much". she's really cool, but u hab to teach urself if u don't get something in class
she's cool and funny. we can already tell she plays favorites, but that doesn't get in the way of your own learning so don't whine about it.
Mrs. Mejia was definately one of the most amazing teachers i have ever had in my whole high school career. last year after taking her psych class i have decided to become a psych major. she is awesome!
She;s honestly an amazing teacher...i think ive aqcuired the most knowledge about life in her class...never raised her voice even once....amazing teacher thats really understadning..and truley cares for her students!! :)
She's a good teacher if you pay attention and figure stuff out on your own, but she plays favorites A LOT.
I think Ms. Megna is a good teacher. Although the tests are way harder than the hws, I think if you have really studies like really hard , it would pay off. It's a honor class ~~
the class itself it fairly straight forwayd, but the lectures and lessons can become mind-numbing and extremely boring. she tries....but the class is often very boring.
Megna is a great person but a mediocre tecaher, who tends to waste time as she walks around the room stamping homework. Her tests for chem h is not that hard if you work quickly.
Mrs. Mejia is someone who I could definitely learn from, for she has never raised her voice over 70 decibel (was it 70?) and what I've learned there will benefit me for life.
Teaching skills are bad but relationship with students are good. I like her class because it's fun and you can eat. Test are very hard, it's inunderstandable. Hates when ppl sleep
i'ts amazing how you handle the class well (even when we're rowdy), without every raising your voice. now THAT'S respect (not every teacher can get). :)
she's a great teacher!!nice,..except in french..it's kinda hard..i'm totally lost in there.she's helpful in psychology! i love that class.
overall she's really fun and cool but she favors the smarter students and LIES about the tests. not that great at teaching..
the class's overall easy, didnt realli have to study for it. liked the psych class, but some of the projects r kind of useless and pointless.wish didnt have to waste my time on it.
Keeps it very intersting with her experiments. I'm concerened about the pace.. can we finish everything be4 aps? I wish she wasn't absent so much cuz we mostly get busy work.
Her AP psych class is somewhat easy to get an A in if you do all the hw & pay attention in her class; she lectures a lot, but she helps you to understand & she gives great examples
She's good at being prepare n' teachin da lesson, she explains things well. The test are not so hard but they're worth too little pts so its hard to get good grade in her klass.
She is one of the best teacher in School because she understands her students. Also, i love when she talks about politics. Very interesting.
Mejia is the teacher I feel closest to, one that I can confide my problems to and get feedback on. I respect her for that. Her lectures aren't always clear but she does her best :)
makes you want 2 learn.Ilove the class discussions that we have cuz the students get 2 put some input into a topic.the experiments are so cool2.seemslikeilearnsomethingneweveryday.
Great teacher in psych. she knows a lot and is pretty prepared, unlike other teachers and students. only thing that i dont like is her political talk. besides that, she's cool.
she has that thing that makes you want to go to class, even though i dont really like the class, i still go to it because of the way she teaches it.
Psych: I wish she would speak upand have more clear notes, I dont feel like I am fully learning the materal and we dont have enough asignments, when we do its too much at once.
overall ms megna is an awsome teacher. very encouraging and always willing to help she teaches pretty well also and is one of the best science teachers ive had so far
although at times she may seem weird, she's really nice and goes out of her way to help students and encourages students, who are steady on their two feet, to help other students!
very personable. doesn't keep a distance between herself and her students. very nice and genuinely caring. i had 4 years of french and psych with her. i'll always remember her.
ms megna is a really cool chem teacher, she encourges her students and does a good job teaching. her class is fun and i always look forward to it
Mrs. Mejia's AP Psych class is challenging, but she is a wonderful teacher. She'll help a lot if you ask questions and she's has a very warm personality. :)
awesome!! tried to make chemistry fun and easy to grasp!
ms megna is really cool. shell help you so much even if u have an F in the class. she realy cares for the students, and she is possibly the best chem/physics
a true student's teacher. Really nice. Lends ear to anyone w/ a problem. French got to be a tad boring and her all french instruction in un-understandable.
picks favorites, unfair, doesnt help students, gives attitude, lazy, cant teach,makes many people feel that they are treated unequally,talks bull about students
She's a nice and approachable teacher overall but she needs to prepare us for the AP psych test more. We didn't even finish covering/going over the whole book!
mrs. mejia isnt that great! she needs to be better prepared when teaching ap psych. lets try to finish the book before APs next year.
pts are limited yet she actually does her best to teach. Mrs. Mejia is a well rounded teacher, although at times getting a A may be hard you actually learn alot
sweet teacher, but can't teach psych. doesnt prepare you for AP. drones on during class. tests are frequently unclear and worth too little amount of points
wonderful teacher who will always be there to help you. She doesn't play favorites and is very forgiving to even those who were bad. French 3/4 can be difficult
shes a great french teacher but needs to be more patient and its often boring in that class
good teacher and even good friend, but sometimes she doesnt understand things outside of our control.
She cares about her students and is understanding but she CAN'T write clear tests. She also lags and goes off-topic alot.
Ms Mejia is probably one of the best teachers at CHS. She's always willing to help and be a friend. French is always fun in her class, but sometimes her all french instruction, can get hard to comprehend.
