Hard to pick which side to go for, for Mrs. Barkovitz. Either she's really awful or really wonderful but I'd say more to the awful side. Gives out a lot of homework and unexpected quizzes. I like how she puts everything in Genesis, but other than that she's below average. I suggest that she gets a hearing aid (no offence), because when I was doing my presentation with my group, she stopped us every 5 seconds to repeat our lines. And she doesn't hesitate to insult us in front of everybody. Awful.

SHe is a great teacher. I liked her, even some people don't. She is flexible in her ways at times and sometimes not as well. Sometimes her way of grading seems crazy, but you will still do well.

Cottage cheese. She was pretty boring, but looking back I was a senior that was in college by Thanksgiving. I kind of regret making her cry - but that is something I'll never forget. Chaucersucks.

She's good for every class except Advanced Placement. She doesn't tell us our work & expects us to go on Teachernotes before it's due to find out. She gives WAY too much work at once (and this is coming from a hard worker!)
