I understand that Frau means well, but the class is hard and there's lots of work. Very rarely we'll have a food day or movie day, and the rest is boring textbook work that I can't even focus on. I really loathe going there some days, and she can be a bit insulting to other students. She also has favorites, and if you need help she's pretty much useless. I also find her a bit intimidating.

I'm a sophomore but taking German 1 because I wanted to take German AND French at the same time. I wish I could drop out of this class but I'm gonna take German 2 for the transcript. She has occasional stuff like food days and lotto games, but aside from these rare occurrences it's going over worksheets every day. Boring and she doesn't really inspire me. She picks favorites and even if you get A's don't expect to get on her good side easily. Ich don't like Deutsch due to her

You either love Frau Merrill or you hate her, and your opinion of her changes throughout the year. She's a pretty good teacher overall. Most of her tests come from the book and a lot of what she does is from the book. What she doesn't get from the book is almost never tested on in the long run, but she'll give these almost random vocab tests from sections you wouldn't think would be tested on and then you never have to think about that material again. It's weird. She's awesome.

Took 4 years of German and enjoyed each year. She has her mood swings sometimes, but shes so much fun! Go to State if you can! Its a great experience and makes the class even more interesting.

If she asks you to go to State, GO! If you don't, and your good at German, it will haunt you for the rest of your German life in that class. Otherwise as good teacher, knows exactly what she's doing.

Firstly, the mood swings only occur if you provoke her. Secondly, so long as you do your work, she's the lightest homework load and study time quite possibly of any of the other IB classes. In the next, she's extremely helpful if you ask for help, and cares about the student if the student cares at all about learning. If not, then yeah, everyone else is right -- things do tend to get hard if you don't work. And, finally, I own the lot of you, so meh unto you!

I had Mrs. Merrill 7 years ago. She was a good teacher, but I was a little concerned about the "evil twin" side of her.
