I would just like to point out how there are bad comments coming from a community where students and teachers are supposed to have great relationships and respect each other. Given the ratings and other experiences it brings one to wonder if Karen is a good fit for SWS.
Karen, Spirituality and Outsider were two of my favorite classes! Great discussions, great books and short stories, no burdening homework... all you could ask for! As long as you like writing and proving your opinions, you're all set to have the best class of your life!
Karren is cool, but her class is no joke. You'll have to work hard, but it's worth it. Your writing won't improve that much, but you'll have great, deep, interesting discussions almost daily.
she's an amazing teacher, but she is stubborn and a little self absorbed. she picks favourites and doesn't seem to have a consistent grading system. she is a very good teacher though, and she will help your writing
Karen's nice, and knows her stuff, but can be very headstrong and difficult to argue with. She's the more conservative of the three SWS English teachers, but if you do the work you'll earn a lot of respect from her. Humanities is the best thing that will ever happen to you, take it.
INCREDIBLE I was so lucky to have her for two classes. She was my first SWS english teacher and she molded my writing into what it is today.
SWS is so lucky to have Karen. She is a younger Abby in many respects but she is clearly independent and leads her class in her own style. She is more challenging than the other teachers and doesn't take b.s., but you walk away from her class feeling absoultely new from when you walked in. Thanks Karen for everything. xoxo
cool teacher who adds to the community and shares the power. revolutionary!
great teacher but needs to raise the bar...assign papers, keep us working. wonderful person, sooo talented
Great teacher. Good books, but she can kind of pick favorites.
