Excellent teacher. People who say nasty things are probably mad because u have to work to get a good grade.

she taught SAT prep, didn't teach us anything, only like two strategies. then i got help from a guy on the college board and he said she was wrong. she tried to sneak in biased politcs into the english prep section.

Gave her a happy face rating earlier this year cuz even if she is nasty, she didn't seem so bad. But she's just gotten crazier and meaner. Hates us all. Just insanely hateful.

She knows her stuff, but she oozes contempt. Her pretense at political neutrality is laughable. I wish she'd quit it with the political cartoons--such a waste of time. Patronizing.

possibly the meanest, most insolent, evil teacher i have ever had. maybe if she wasnt so biased she could teach a class for once. and i got a 4 on the ap exam despite getting a c!

Ms. Grimes' class was a joke...but at least it was funny! I was in her class about seven years ago with good friends, so I have fond memories of goofing off!

She's been giving me a hard time since day 1. She's biased (hates republicans with a vengeance). She yells at everybody a lot. I should have transferred out.

the woman is oblivious to everything. she has favorites, and since i'm not a 'favorite,' it took her six months to learn my name

Mrs. Grimes loved me to death and I could barely stand her. Made for an interesting classroom dynamic.

Ms. Grimes has read the government textbook, but that's about all. She does very little to motivate her students. Meanwhile, she teaches straight out of the book, and if you ask her a question about anything not in the book she won't give a coherent answe

While I don't know how she acts towards her AP students, Ms. Grimes behavior during regular classes is disrespect, condescension and disdain at its worst. I don't care if the woman's smart, the fact I am required by law to be treated this way is sickening

She needs to understand that we don't know what is going on in her head.
