I gave her a "5" on easiness, not because she's easy -- but because she made me capable of doing dang freakin' hard stuff! Best. Teacher. Ever.
Ms. Brinton is by far the best history teacher I have ever had. I am horrible at history, but because of her teaching I got a good score on the AP test.
She chose a book that was far too difficult! I love her lectures, but her tests are impossible to navigate. She puts lots of trick questions in them and is merciless to kids who can't keep up.
She prepares you really well for the test but needs to be a little more relaxed towards her IB children if she wants them to behavior her better!
Good teacher.... I agree sometimes the work is hard and pointless, but overall it's an extremely valuable class (the review essays did NOT help, a review book was much more effective )
The work is sometimes hard and seems pointless, but it all pays off for the AP test. She prepares you really well.
