Turpin is the best. She's completely magical, somehow she makes Euro so much fun. She's super nice, and though some people think that her lectures are boring, I think they're interesting, though that may just be on part, since I like history. The tests aren't that hard for me. As long as you understand the material and the significance of the events! Absolutely love her. Also love the updates on her and Thomas. Such a cute pair.

Ms. Turpin is AMAZING! She is by far the best teacher I've ever had! If you're taking A.P. Euro, you can't go wrong. Work hard in her class, and you will do great. Just don't cheat, she takes that really seriously. She stays after school almost everyday, and you can come in everyday during lunch and she is always there to help. It is a hard class, and she will push you, put it is completely worth it. I was so lucky to have such an amazing teacher!!!

Ms. Turpin is an AMAZING teacher. She cares a ton for her students. She prepares you extremely well for the AP test, if you put in the effort and do what she suggests. Her class isn't easy (it is an AP class so.....), but definitely doable. You would be lucky to have her. Only great things to say for Ms. Turpin.

Ms. Turpin is really nice, and despite being AP her class isn't that hard at all. Just do your homework and study, and you should be fine. Definitely pay attention since she gives a lot of pointers and prepare you well for the big test.

AP Euro. A notoriously dry subject that Ms. Turpin handles beautifully. By the end you will understand everything and be prepared for any AP history class afterward. She makes the most complex events (eg French Rev) into easy to understand parts and gives an extremely strong base to build upon. She is truly magic.

I absolutely love Ms.Turpin! She is one of my favorite teachers from AHS. I had her for AP Euro and she taught me so much and really made me like the subject. She is a great teacher and very passionate! If you can take AP Euro, you should! It is a challenging class, but Ms.Turpin will always help you and wants you to succeed!

A great teacher! Goes above and beyond what is required, even for an AP teacher, and makes the material much more accessible. She even gives her own time to do things like mock AP tests.

Ms Turpin is sooo awesome. She knows what she talks about, and she's great with helping people study. She does as much as she possibly can to prepare her students for the AP test, and that's how I got a 4. She's fun, and definitely made AP euro one of my fave classes last year.

AP Euro was really fun with her, I learned A LOT. She can actually talk from experience about stuff like the Berlin Wall. Take AP Euro - hard class, but definitely worth it. You feel so much smarter.
