Yoda knows a great deal about history, but she presented it in such an overcomplicated way. The kind of culture surrounding the class was one of the most cringe-inducing things I've seen in high school. Students worshipped her "innovative approach to teaching" unquestioningly, and spewed out pages and pages of nothing for each assignment in an attempt to supplement the quality of their writing. In a way, none of this is even Yoda's fault, as she discouraged this kind of attitude. TL;DR Bad Class
Wisest teacher I've ever had. Extremely inspiring. Difficult class, but the learning was addictive. Yoda opens up an entire new love for learning that you didn't think you had in you - remarkable.
Hard but fair. Inspiring. Best SME teacher!
She woul probably be my favorite teacher if I didn't hate history.
YODA ROCKS! She is one of the few teachers that actually puts in as much work as the students!
Most judgemental reacher I know. Be prepared to work hard but more importantly worship her assistant if your ewant to do well.
She's the best if you do your homework. You'd also be hard-pressed to say her class isn't interesting.
Vicki Arndt-Helgesen was The very best teacher I had throughout my high school education. Having done about 120 credits in a few different colleges when i think of the best teachers she immediately shoots to the top! Best Wi
Yoda taught me so much. It is ridiculous the amount of information that she gives you in one year. I had her for both AHAP and Soc. and I don't think I will ever learn that much again.
Best teacher I had. Great teacher...fun, and I learned a ton. You learn how to think abstractly. Very helpful if you need help. Great at explaining. But do your homework, or it sucks.
Outstanding -- I've taken both Ahap&Sociology and my experiences were invaluable. She forces you to learn.
Yoda might just be the best teacher I have ever had, intelligent, yet willing to turn the class over to the students, even if you don't get her for American History, take Sociolog
She is a fun teacher to have and this is the first social studies class i've had in highschool where i've actually had to think. That might scare some kids away but i like it.
Arrogant, holds herself out as being more intelligent than she is. Teaching methods outdated as the theories presented in her class have largely been discredited.
Shes fun, but her lessons need a little updating, she is behind in her techniques of teaching. If you have her fro AP,good luck,regular,GET OUT, too hard compared to other teachers
She can be brutal, but you'll certainly learn a lot.
Very good teaching skills. Makes cirriculum interesting and fun. Definately a fabulous teacher
If I had a nickel (and dime?) for every mean thing she said, I'd be a millionaire. Though intelligent, it becomes necessary to tune her out for your own health.
Some people really dislike her. I enjoyed her self-righteousness. She's on target with most of her analysis, and will share it anytime. Just do the work.
very good teacher, makes history fun. A legend at East
Yoda is amazing. You will learn sooooo much, esp. for sociology. She has her own style and makes it fun. Lot of work, but soooo worth it. Don't miss out.
Yoda's class requires work, but the benefits are great. And remember Yoda, the Isreali army uses women as fodder ;) .
Fun class, but you need to be self-motivated. Get off on the right foot and she's more than accomodating.
