She's amazing-- she cares about her students and if they're learning and it really shows. She wants everyone to understand the material and to do well. She utilizes real life examples that relate to the lesson perfectly. Her tests were a little on the challenging side, but this ultimately prepared me for the global exam and I can genuinely say that I learned and retained a lot. Thanks, Karp.

She is one of my favorite teachers. I had her for global 9 and 10. I thought her stories were really funny, and she's really passionate about helping everyone pass the regents and is knowledgeable. :)

I had her for global 10, yeah she does talk about her family sometimes but I wouldn't say excessively like these reviews project. She's very intelegent and passionate. She really wants her students to succeed and gets agitated when the material and work isn't being taken seriously. If you actually care about learning something she's great. If you're someone who's slacking and doesn't gaf about high school transfer, save both her and yourself the misery.

I had Ms.Karp twice for global 10 and i only failed the first time because i did not take the full year of global 9 and i only had her for the end of the course because i moved there late, but you can not get better than Ms.Karp , i got a 95 on the global regents and i can guarantee you no other teacher could have thought me as well as she did. Amazing , caring , smart and nice.

She is being paid to teach us SUPA economics but all she does is talk about her family and friends. She doesnt give any extra help. And when you ask her to meet with you after class her response always is the same... "I'm getting you ready for college! Your professor isnt going to have have any extra help. They probably wont even know your name. Your basically just a number them." Im sorry, but that is NOT the way to motivate high school seniors! My honest opinion is she should not be teaching!!

all she talks about is her life and she compares it with history which is confusing all i remember in her class is her stories and her voice is like something is always stuck in her throat and she talks to fast. all in all she sucks!

Good teacher but her voice is just like nails on a chalkboard. She loses her voice to this day and says "Mkay" over 80 times each class (students have counted). She is VERY smart and will like you if she knows you're trying or if you smile at her or laugh while she tells one of her stories. She always makes sure her family stories do relate to the topic. ALSO gives too many packets the last three weeks of school. Each packet has over 50+ questions and expects it to be finished over night

Herron's a GREAT teacher. (Except the superflous stories) Anyone who thinks otherwise just doesn't try hard enough. She worked so hard to help us pass the AP and I really appreciate her dedication.
