Twyla's APUSH was undoubtedly my favorite class. Yes, it is hard. Yes, you must study and read...A LOT. But it is worth it. She makes learning US History fun and interesting and does a great job in exam prep. She has a good, Southern sense of humor and can be sassy and sarcastic with you. Just be warned, if you piss her off, she will be on you like white on rice. Just do your work, do well on exams, get on her good side, and you'll learn to love her class. Also, she hates kids coming late

She is undoubtedly my favorite teacher of all time. She always keeps her students engaged and the class is never boring. I guarantee that you will laugh at least once every day from her sense of humor. Her exams are very difficult and it forces you to pay attention during class and to always take extensive notes. She makes history enjoyable and I wish there were more teachers like her. She is the best.

Mrs. Preising is a master in her field. She truly loves teaching AP US History, and I loved learning it from her. Every day she takes her students on an adventure into the past as we learn how this great country was built. I got a 5 on the AP test because I put in the effort. If you are reading this as a prospective student, yes, this class will test your memory. However, you will come out a better student because of it.

A very good teacher overall, and you learn a lot from her class. She uses very strange methods of drilling it into your memory like getting you to remember what the Monroe Doctrine was by saying she claimed the D building as her own dominion. She's also obsessed with Georgia Southern University, so if they win a game it's always a good day in class. If they lose, then you are in for a bad day.

Preising is great! She's very good at making her classes interesting. Be careful, she can be a stickler about the formatting of assignments. Your name's in the wrong corner? = incomplete. She usually gives students second chances to get it right though. She's also one of those teachers who will spring a test on you without warning- so keep up with the reading! But her style works. Her students do very well on the AP. I have no regrets about taking her class. It's a great experience!

one of the best teachers at chaparral. she really knows everything about history, and is willing to help students in whatever way possible. she may be strict, but if you follow her rules and try hard it's an easy class.

her assignments can often be very ambiguous as to what she wants. her tests are hard, some of her rules and formatting are absolutely ridiculous and unecessary

She is a great AP teacher that prepares you for the test. She is a nice lady...most of the time. But she can be real mean about the formatting of papers and if you break a rule slightly.

One of the few teachers left who actually teach their students. The kids who think she is a bad teacher are usually the ones who are clueless about history.

First her name is Preising. She cares about the students and plays fair with all. She is very intelligent and very demanding. Students have been successful with her for 22 years!

Could be better, could be worse. Very traditional and conventional. Extraordinarily narrow-minded. Teaches well but demands huge quantities of pointless work that teaches little
