Mrs. Kigar is an amazing teacher who really cares about her students and is extremely dedicated. If you have the opportunity to take AP Lit, do it. I learned more in her English class than in all my previous ones. At times the workload can seem overwhelming, but Mrs. Kigar is always there if you have questions. Also, she knows a lot about helping kids get into college/college essays.

Mrs. Kigar is a nice enough human being, but she plasters this big, fake smile on her face as she assigns you load upon load of busy work. She seems to have very little compassion during the beginning of the school year, and doesn't consider how hard her students have to work on college applications. She knew many were stressed at that time, but still assigned projects and papers and reading every night. I expected that in the end, AP Lit would be better than AP Lang, but it definitely wasn't.

Ms.KIgar is probably the worst teacher the you could possibly have for English. All she really does is give you assignment after assignment. It's basically like she has no life. She talks about her family all the time. The only thing she is good at is being annoying and judgmental to many of her students. She likes to pick favorites. She try's to be funny but really she's not. She's a preacher's wife so all her jokes are related to her religion. Ugh Kigar's class is so no worth it!!! stay away!!

Mrs.Kigar is more than a great teacher, she's one of my absolute favorite people. One day I hope to love my job half as much as she loves hers, and I learn more about life and what it means to be human in her class than anywhere else. Most mornings I wake up excited to go to school and see what we'll be doing in Kigar's class. She's genuinely caring, patient, and helps us perfect our writing because she's honest with it, and treats us like adults. That is more than worth it. Stay awesome!

Smiles as she yells at you. Smiles as she talks about her family. Smiles as she grades arbitarily. Those are just about the only things she ever does.
