She's a great teacher. Her tests are easy as long as you do your homework and study. She can be a bit mean sometimes, but if you stay after with her she is really nice.

Ms. Shinkman was a very hard teacher who pushed all of her honors students extremely hard. however, she cared very much about all of her students and it showed in her teaching. my biggest weakness was finishing tests in time.

You need to be willing to work hard and pay attention in class if you want to do well. She's tough but her tests are very fair. So don't worry, her class will force you to become a more mature and better student.

I had her two years in a row about 10 years ago. Disliked her first year, then started to see that she was very effective at teaching, and willing to help.

Awesome teacher - just because she's hard doesn't mean she won't help you out. You'll learn a lot from her.

I like her, mean on the outside, but at heart, she's very nice. You just have to get to know her. She runs a tough and challenging class.
