Absolutely the best. She teaches at a higher standard. To those that don't understand her writing one word on the board, thats college for you. You are supposed to pay attention and take notes based on what she says, whatever she writes is a key term to be emphasized. She is always willing to help and makes learning difficult material possible. She pushes you and always believes in you. Oh, and shes hilarious and a great all around person <3

Ms. Bruen is one of the best teachers at Mary Louis. She is so passionate about what she does and she is ALWAYS willing to help. If you put effort into her class you will reap the benefits. She pushed me to do my very best. I learned so much in her class and I cannot thank her enough for the experience she gave me!

Ms. Bruen is a very good teacher. She dedicates her time in helping her students that struggle and helped us prepare for the AP exam. We got off to a rough start at first, but we managed to make it a good year. I recommend her to any student who is interested in history.

She was excellent in preparing us to take the regents. But it was a bit difficult to adjust to her way of teaching. You have to pay attention to understand the concepts. Not a class for slackers.

She is a nice person but does not give good notes. She writes a word on the board and then underlines it a lot. But i got a 98 on the regents!

what are all these clowns complaining about her notes for? if you pay attention, you can make your own clear, concise notes. don't just stare at the board.

When I had Ms. Bruen 3 years ago. She's boring and EXTREMELY condescending. It's no wonder that AP Euro never runs, because noone wants to have her twice.
