Mrs. Painter is the most intelligent teacher I've ever had, her knowledge goes way beyond the textbook and she proves that with all of her great examples and in class activities. She also treats her students like adults and lets us eat in class which is pretty great. Her AP Psych class is challenging, however, and you won't be able to take your reading quizzes if you are absent, but hey, it's a college level class.
Ms. Painter is one of the best teachers at Folsom High. You have not lived until you have taken one of her classes, not even joking, do yourself a favor and enroll yourself in AP Psych or AP Gov/econ. I had her for psych and I learned so much. Her notes are very easy to understand and she is always willing to explain anything to you to help. She always kept us working and thinking and talking to out groups. She applied what we learnt to real life and was just overall amazing.
Perhaps one of our school's most experienced and excellent teachers. Beyond a doubt, she will make you work in her class, and some people may not like that. But the things she teaches will not evaporate into thin air out of your mind. Not a very strict teacher but she does set a fast-moving agenda. But you come out of her class knowing a ton of stuff more than when you started, whether it's Psych, Gov or Econ, and you'll completely dominate the AP tests without a question. Go Ms. Painter!
My all time favorite teacher! She's kind and helpful. She's strict but thats a good thing. Class is always on task and you learn a whole lot. She's very animated and keeps the class interested in what she is talking about. I hope I have teachers like her in college!
I've never seen a teacher work so hard for her class or make herself so available to assist. She really really does care. Her teaching style isn't the best for me-- too many powerpoints and the group reading SUCKS-- but it's
Loads of reading to do, very animated teacher. Loved her becuase she explained everything and answers everyones questions. Very fair and looks out for students who ask for her help. Will feel well prepared for the AP Gov test
Amazing. She is by far my favorite teacher, she is knowledgeable, and cares deeply about her students. without too much extra work, I passed the AP test, and learned more about government then I ever expected, she is amazing!
If you take this class for AP Government be prepared for the most homework that you have ever done in your life. However, if you do it, you will be so prepared
She is nice and helpful but ALWAYS seems to be in a rush. She needs to seem like she is taking more time to explain things. Great teacher, love the activities!
