APUSH 1 was very difficult and stressful but the experience was definitely worthwhile and will significantly help in the long run. Although I have always resented the class and have completely forgotten everything about US History, the skills developed through outlining and working under the agile and high workload demand environment made transitioning to and doing well in college significantly easier.

I have had Ms. Dougherty for World Civ and APUSH 1. She is fantastic. though everyone does not necessarily agree with all of her political statements, she does her best to be impartial. Her tests are difficult - make sure you are outlining. Her class is very similar to other AP classes and college classes; so while it may be difficult, it's the easiest it will ever be for you. She is helpful and will give you extra pointers if you visit her during extra help. Overall, one my favorite teachers.

I absolutely love Ms. Dougherty! I used to find her over enthusiasm a bit irritating, but now I find her passion for history quite admirable. AP is very difficult though, so make sure you read the textbook thoroughly if you want to do well on the pop quizzes. She explains the information very well after the quiz though, so make sure you pay attention. She is super nice and fun and tells us tons of stories, and is overall a great teacher.

She's an okay teacher but she can't teach world civ! I guess since she teaches an AP class every year, she's used to teaching at a higher difficulty level, which doesn't benefit everyone... You can ask anyone who has a different world civ class if theres is easy and they'll all say yes, but if you ask someone who has dougherty, they'll say its actually hard..

She is fantastic! Her priority is to teach and make history interesting, not to screw you over. She's a wonderful teacher and a wonderful human being.Watch out though, there are pop quizzes. But they just force you to study harder, which is good.

Last year I had Ms. Dougherty and she was one of the most amazing teachers i've ever had. The class that I had her for was very tough and she understood that. I was doing very poorly compared to the rest of the class, but she really helped me out. I stayed after a lot and she was more than willing to give me pointers about how to get my grades up. She loves what she does and even though i was doing bad in the class, she made me like the topics. she went out of her way to help me. LOVE HER=]

okay teacher. best person on earth. gets off topic and talks about her fascinating life all class period sometimes. has a great love for johnny depp and thomas jefferson. i wish she was my mom. go ahead and judge me, she's the greatest though! go to extra help and just bond with the woman. She has the best stories, and sense of humor. She gives good advice and is soooo understanding and fair. I got an A because she curved almost every single test. She has a good sense of fashion and awesome shoes. iloveher.
