Really just an amazing woman and teacher. Cares about her students, grades fairly (and after years of confusing essay feedback, she is our saving grace when it comes to clarity on what to improve), and leaves ample space for extra credit and help. It's not like it's an easy class or she's an easy grader -- on the contrary, actually -- because she 100% preps you for that AP exam. But there's room for you to make up missing points, and you'll get the grade you deserve. Thank you for a great year!

I really wish when we're going over SAT stuff she would give us her explanations for the answers, instead of just reading them out of the book. That would be helpful...

Well, Beth Madia hated me. Not in the way where I got bad grades or anything like that. But she did pick on me and my ideas, irritate me in class. But she respected us all. Alright teacher...i guess.

Awesome teacher. True, the workload is huge but totally worth it, I've got the 5 on the AP test to prove it. Genuinely cares about students and is always there to help. Also has great sense of humor.

Not really smart, but ironically thinks no one is at her level. Has unjustifiable disdain for students. Believes being hard equals being knowledgable.
