She is a really knowledgeable teacher but she doesn't answer questions well. She grades way too hard on essays without justifying why you lose points! She was difficult to talk to and didn't make global very enjoyable for me at all.

Mrs. Devane certainly isn't the worst Global teacher. There are definitely worse, trust me. Overall, all the Global teachers follow the same curriculum, homework, same everything. So, all that is really different per class is just the teacher. Mrs. Devane isn't particularly helpful when you ask questions, but she knows her stuff. There is a ton of textbook homework- freshman beware. Global is the worst class for about 99% of the people who have it. The tests r super hard, and she grades hard.

Well she is a really hard teacher but she's the kind that if you work hard then you'll be happy. i honestly think she's a great teacher. She knows so much and her classes are really interesting but you just have to get used to putting in a lot of work. So if you're lazy you won't do well but if you work hard I think you're going to do really well and she'll see that

Ms. Devane, is a great global teacher, who is knowledgable and good at getting her ideas across. At first, it just feels like she is throwing information at you, but her structure is actually very intuitive. We go in depth into many topics, and her note taking skills help understand longer and more complex passages. The course is not easy, but this is the case with all other 9th grade Global teachers, as they all follow a similar curriculum. You have to put in the effort to do well.

She is really not a nice person, she is condescending and jaded and should find a different career. Her teaching skills are nothing to write home about and she is a harsh and rather unfair grader. If you are not one of her favorites, beware! She will treat you as though you are stupid even if you demonstrate interest in the subject. I found her class to be a low point of my day even though social studies is my favorite subject. She can't be bothered to help students. Avoid!

She doesn't connect to her students at all. I feel like she doesn't remember my name now that I don't have her anymore. Whenever she gives you notes her handwriting is unreadable and she moves too fast to copy down the notes. She is unclear at times and her class is the least enjoyable of the day. When I had her, I hated her but overall she was fine. I learned mostly from the homework so as long as you do that you should be ok.

She doesn't really see eye to eye with the students. S.S. is my best subject and I'm finding hard to enjoy Global Studies. She never calls on me and "shh" 's me everytime I call out because she recognizes other kids who speak out but dont raise hands

Even though I did not get good grades in her class (mostly on quizzes) I still learned a lot form her. My average in her class by the end of the year was around a 3.0 so she is a pretty tough grader. Other than that she was really cool. Because of her
