The class is very unorganized. If she likes you, the class isn't so bad. Make sure you participate!

Easy class. As long as you participate everyday you'll be fine. Not a lot of essays, her class was focused on talking in groups about events in the books you read. Most people had a B+/A- average, but Barkin is pretty harsh when she's in a bad mood and her class was unorganized and unpredictable. Other than than she's decent.

Mrs. B. is probably one of the most difficult teachers to work with at Amity. She yells at you for asking a question, and makes your work feel worthless. She refuses to listen to her students, SHE is always right, the students are wrong, point blank. Her homework at times makes absolutely no sense, DON'T expect to get full credit, she takes points off for no reason. Her lesson plan is scattered and I NEVER know what to expect in class. If you get on her bad side, she'll make your experience HELL

it seems as though i am first on the page I will now reveal my inner most secret. Every day i go into the garden and lie down with the vegetable. I pretend to be one of them and at times paint my self red to make the connection even stronger.

She is strict at times and doesn't explain exactly what she wants. Then when you don't do what she wants she gets mad. A hard teacher to deal with.

I think she is a very good teacher. If she likes you, you will like her.She gave me A's when smarter kids got D's. She's very enthusiastic and try to get on her good side or you will be sorry.

Overall she is a horrible teacher. Her grading system is very inconsistent; sometimes I get an A on essays, other times I get a C. I never know what to expect on her tests. She is not very helpful either. I asked her some que

She's a nice person, but she gives tons of hw and gets mad when you ask questions sometimes. Get on her good side and read the book and you'll do fine
