I'm surprised by some of the positive comments about Melhus. Lots I could say...but I'll just say that this teacher has taken the joy out of what used to be my favorite subject.

O Ingrid. In the beginning of the year you will notice she seems like really good but once you get to the third and fourth quarter she starts to lag a little. she crammed about 8 units into the fourth quarter and a final exam!! When we have nothing to do we just watch a social studies movie or play jeopardy. She is a good teacher most of the time but sometimes she can tend to slack off. Although she might seem easy her tests can really trick you sometimes.

Ms Melhus is the best social studies teacher I have had. I didn;t learn anything in social studies last year, but this year has been great especially the stock market game.

I'm sure that Ms. Melhus is a nice person, but so far she has been a little disappointing. She gives pointless packets about the inforation that is t even on her tests and projects where you basically have to teach yourself. On the other hand, she at least tries to teach you and she is knowledgeable about social studies.

I love Mrs. Melhus. She was the most helpful and caring teacher I've ever had. She taught me so much last year, and helped me in everyway possible. I wish I still had her as a teacher. You should feel lucky to have such a caring and sweet teacher for social studies.

Our class schedule -
1) Listen to her tell a boring story from her childhood
2) Collect guidelines for project
3) Use textbooks, books from library, and online reasources to gather information for the project that was assigned one day, and due the next
4) Hope to god you took good notes on other peoples' projects because that is all you're getting for the quiz tomorrow
5) Repeat
(Where does she come in - you might ask? Nice one, she doesn't come in other than to assign projects)

Mrs. Melhus is the worst teacher I have had in a while. She is not helpful at and ruins my day on a daily basis. She is probably the most bias teacher i have ever had the displeasure of being taught by. She acts like she is neutral and then is clearly not. Mrs. Melhus is a Hippocratic , and ridiculously bias public school teacher. Her tests are unfair and she grades by the name on top of the paper. Mrs. Melhus is by far the worst Social Studies teacher I have ever had. Period.

Someone must take a stand and get this awful teacher out of our middle school. We are spending our prescious tax dollars to pay this woman's salary and waste our kids' time? It makes no sense!
