She was very helpful. Ms. Miller didn't get mad when only one or two people did their homework toward the beginning of the year she simply tried to figure out why (I wasn't that one person). The class got easier toward the end of the year as there would be a lot of bonus points. She just wanted us to be prepared for high school.

Ms Miller was probably one of my favorite teachers. It's true that she does get mad at people sometimes, but always understandably so (when they can't retain anything we've learned in the past month). It took a bit of time to get used to her teaching style and the way she wants you to do things, but once you do and if you try hard enough, you'll do fine in her class. I loved doing her projects and the final project especially because it can be about anything, eben if it's not related to civics.

Ms Miller only wants the best for her students. She focuses on understanding the material instead of memorizing. Her quizzes and tests are easy if you understand the material.
Recently she has changed her teaching because people have not been doing their homework and trying to understand the material. She has switched to textbook reading and powerpoints, which she said in the beginning of the school year was inefficient. So please do the homework or she will switch to a boring lesson plan.

So, basically Mrs.Miller is one of the hardest classes you will ever take. To start the year she is terrifying and insanely hard to understand. Once you start to understand it and figure out what she really expects it makes a lot more sense. She is actually the most incredible teacher that you will ever have. She teaches you how to write, think, present everything-- Also time management because she assigned homework constantley. Do whatever you can to be in her class its worth it 1000%.

Tests weren't too hard as long as you payed attention. However, her grading is completely subjective. She can bring your test grade down just for not wording an answer the way she wanted you to. Her projects are interesting. She has good teaching philosophy but her personality is horrible. She is extremely rude, and discourages interested students if she doesn't like them by embarrassing them. Her favorites are SO obvious. She spends half the class yelling/rambling.

If you don't like Mrs. Miller, it's because you're not trying hard enough. All she wants is to prepare you all for high school, and she honestly tries too hard and gives us too many opportunities to start and try. Sure, she goes off on tangents, but she knows what she's talking about, and if you actually put in the work, it's a great class. It's true though, that you either love her or hate her, so just be smart enough to love her and her class.

She can be a harsh teacher, but if you pay attention in class and follow directions on assignments, the class is really easy. The tests are pretty hard, but sometimes she gives out a lot of bonus points. For the tests I recommend listening in class, reviewing your mark ups and assignments. They really help. One of the best teachers I've had.

Mrs. Miller was at first not my favorite teacher, but she was amazing. She really taught us so much and she wasn't a boring teacher that would shut you out but she opened up and she would always ask you questions during your presentations, make sure you marked up your papers, and overall was an amazing teacher because she never gave you an easy test she gave you a hard one so you would study and even if you didn't do well she could always help you understand and she never gave up on me.

Mrs. Miller is, so far, the absolute best teacher I have ever had. She is hard, yes. She is harsh, yes. She also got me interested in politics. She makes you work hard and understand the material instead of reading the information and memorising it. Her 'lectures' are intellectual discussions that try to involve everyone. She has not only taught me civics but how to deal and work with people who don't share my views on a topic. She's the only good teacher on Yagottawannas to be honest.

You either hate Miller or love her. I happen to love her. She's the teacher that makes Yagottawannas a bearable team. She's a pretty hard teacher, though. She has these open response tests on material we haven't even covered, but they're open note so I guess it's fair game. Ms. Miller is actually preparing you for high school, which is why she's so tough. We all have moments where we despise her, but in the end I've learned so much from her class. She's one of the most informative teachers @ lms

Why do you call everything "yelling" when you mean she disagrees or doesn't say you are right. I can not remember one time she actually yelled. She doesn't embarrass you in front of class, but if you got the answer wrong, you may be embarrassed. She just wants you to think, to ask good questions, and to grow. I saw one kid cry once, and I also saw Mrs. Miller go out of her way to make her him feel better. I also saw her cry once because she was so frustrated with students who won't try.

I love Mrs. Miller. At first, she comes off as demanding and likes embarrassing her students when they get answers wrong, but it's all for success. She inspired me to do my best and got me interested in politics. For the students that have her now, just know that everything she's doing is for your own academic and general achievement. If you want to do well in her class, then don't blame the difficulty level of the tests and study! Understand, not memorize.

She really wants us to understand. I like that. She really wants us to ask questions. That's important. This service clearly isn't used much any more except by someone who is mad, so it isn't much good but I wanted to say something good because this is just wrong. If you look back at the older ones when people used this alot she was ranked the highest. It is sad that kids are allowed to write such lies just because they are mad.

I love Mrs. Miller! She was amusing, knowledgeable, and always available to offer help. I liked her re-writable essays, which definitely helped more than anything else in terms of high school prep. One of my favorite classes when I was in eighth grade. Her current students will appreciate the practice in a few years. It's a tough class - there's a reason we call her Killer Miller - but if you can't do it, why did you take honors again? She's a wonderful teacher. Anyone would be lucky to get her!

she was the worst teacher i have ever had. It's easy to get an A if u do all the essays and get at least a B- or more on the tests/quizzes, cause the essays are like 90% of ur grade. She really has class favorites and CLEARLY, i repeat, CLEARLY hates some students. For the students she hates, she doesn't give them oppurtunities that other students have and criticizes every flaw that the student has. She embarrasses the student during project presentations.Her teaching is sometimes confusing too.
