Ms. Refkin is the best English teacher I have ever met. She can be kind of funny at some times but she also knows when to "lay down the law." Her hard work has led me to be a better writer and class is never boring! She knows when we're talking in class or doing something wrong but almost never cass you out; she'll just kind of move towards you as if she wants to hear what we are talking about, which effectively puts a stop to the talking. 10/10 would recommend.
she can be kind of condisending to the people who she thinks are not smart when ever I try to answer a question I says and she just moves on to the next one. When she calles on the people she likes she engages with them
She was my English teacher when I was at Hunter in 8th grade and then for my senior project. She was amazing. Really supportive and creative and helped me pursue my dreams to become a writer and filmmaker. She's the best.
one of the best teachers and mentors i have ever had. she is a kind, low-key, brilliant and fun woman and, frankly, everything a high-school english teacher should be.
I had her for AP Lit and I enjoyed the class.She may not be the most outrageous teacher but she's nice and runs a good class.Awesome lady!
I do not like Ms. Refkin as a teacher, she can be very obnoxious to people that she doesn't like, and it ruins the class. I can say about the same thing for Ms. Alviar too.........
nice, easy to talk to & approachable, knows what she's talking about. loves to teach. doesn't pick favorites, but she'll like you if you pay attention, do the work, and say good stuff. she's cool ^^
One of the best English teachers in this school. Love going to her classes.
Ms. Refkin is a very insightful teacher. Her tollerance for BS is very low, although her acceptance of her students and her love of teaching make her a saint.
I love her as a teacher. Balanced in every way --open to different views, not too hard or too easy grader. She's also willing to set aside and help you 1 on 1
Ms. Refkin was a wonderful English teacher who was essential in the development of my writing style. Now that I teach English, I'm using a lot of her techniques
she's very nice. but the whole mets thing just ruins her coolness.
