Mean. Grades anything subjective with a sadistic approach unlike anyone I've encountered at Pen so far. Cannot clearly explain what her expectations are. Therefore, her grading is even more unfair. Spent 45 minutes one period berating students and telling them they did not deserve to be in AP, because they could not answer her question. Perhaps TEACHING would have been a better use of the 45 minutes.
She is really an amazing teacher and I learned a lot in her class. She is pretty strict about classroom rules but as long as you stay on her good side, you'll be fine. If you work hard and follow her guidelines you will be fine
One of the best teachers I had in high school...tough, but knows what she's doing. She really prepares you for college-level work.
Ms. Tootell is not a very good person. Her teaching is ok, but half the time we have to teach ourselves if we want a good grade. Her grading for subjective work (essays and projects) is very harsh. Basically, if she doesn't like it, but it is good, then you'll be receiving a low grade. She partially skims over how she wants our work turned in, and grades our work like we are college students. Personally, I recommend never signing up for one of her classes. If you do get her, leave.
I have had Ms. Krogh for two years, and I can say that she is one of my favorite teachers. To address the complaints 1st: yes she can have moments, but those are mainly to scare away the students who either will not be able to cope, or those who will not benefit from a higher level course (honestly teachers are human too). I recommend that if you truly enjoy history, you tough it out for the 1st quarter, and you'll see that she is a genuinely caring human being, and she is a very good teacher.
She has a mood thing. and she has favorites. no matter how hard i worked and tried, she would still give me a bad grade. BUT SHE PREPARES YOU WELL FOR AP EXAM!!
I still remember things from that class, and I took APUSH with her years ago. Unfortunately, she is insane, and grades with obvious favoritism. Got a bad grade in the class, even though I got a five.
i actually really like her, i would TA for her any day. yeah she's kinda mean sometime but she makes sure you know the information! i got an A both semesters so its not impossible!
shes an awesome teacher and a really great person. i know she seems crazy but in the end, one of the best teachers ive ever had. this is one of those classes where you will actually learn ALOT
She loves her juniors and seniors, but she really hates freshman and sophomores. She is a great teacher and you really understand the material once she's finished, but she's VERY demanding and rude.
Ms. krogh is the best teacher i have ever had. she was definatly trying and very harsh, but she has shaped her students top be confident and poised. those who rate her poorly are just to weak
No doubt about it, she is one of the best caring history teacher I have ever met. She has a lot of knowledge in World&US history. Just do your best, and there should be no reason why you don't succeed
Amazing teacher, willing to help, knows her stuff. she holds her kids to a very high standard. she can get frusturated because she cares and wants everyone to do well. such a nice person, talk to her
one of the few world history teachers who actually teach you something
ms krogh is probably one of the best teachers ever.she is hard. but stand your ground. she will try to rip you apart. show her that you can take it. and she will respect you. no stupid questions!!!!!
Logan Krough should not be a high school teacher. She behaves like a teenage princess and intimidates, belittles and harrasses students. So glad my son got out of there. Never again!
She is an amazing teacher!!she may be strick and seem mean but really, she is one of the nicest people and best teahcers i have ever had. she is always willing to help
watch out for her mood swings, so like, basically watch out for her 24/7
she's a really good teacher and you'll learn a lot from her, you just have to be careful about what you say and what you do in her class
she is psychotic. she hates students i dont even know why she became a teacher. i think she needs some therapy. maybe then she will be a little better. transfer out of her class .
she is so mean and moody - She screams at everyone to participate then screams at anyone who tries to answer her questions...STAY AWAY FROM KROUGH - She's psycho!!
once, i went to her desk to ask her a question and she yells to me: "GET AWAY FROM THE DESK!!" so i said okay and walked away... then she yelled at me again saying "THATS NOT FAST ENOUGH!!!"... lighten up krogh.
Ms. Krogh is nice a lot of the time. She is a good teacher though. But dont ask her any questions that have already been answered. She hates that. Overall she is an ok teacher.
She's, diffucult, you learn alot though, she doesn't like questions...
SO glad i transferred out of her class!! beware ms. krogh!!! BEWARE OF HER MOOD SWINGS!!!
She's hard, yeah. But COME ON! she's fun, and nice... and if you follow instructions, she's not angry! She is a little scary, but she grows on you! She will pre
....dangerous mood swings...i think she's an incompetent teacher...really...why is she in the room anyway...
many students complain about her, but at the end, it pays off through many in-class essays and tests. She prepares you for the future. She's nice if u r nice
in class, miss krogh was ridiculous. i dont think she has any concept of the work she assigns, or how her attitude affects some students self esteem. i hated having to walk on eggshells around her, and always staying conscious of The Mood Swings. she has
Ms. Krogh is talented at teaching history. She has mood swings, but she is effective as a teacher. She sometimes refuses to answer questions.
good teacher, but definantly has issues with what to teach and anger management
she's not too helpful because she's in a constantly bad mood.. and her essays...
she teaches history well, but she tests people on their english skills
