Had her for WHH last year. Dr. Garber is easily the best history teacher I have had, and I have had pretty good teachers. She is incredibly knowledgeable, and her discussions in class are fun. Class is repetitive, but interesting, and I learned new stuff everyday. BUT. She gives a load of homework, most nights. I have had to outline about 5-7 pages every night, and her vocab is a killer. Make sure you make friends and split workloads, and dont get caught (duh). 10/10 would recommend.

Extremely knowledgeable on the subject, she is very qualified! The class can be difficult but I finished the year with an A+. The exams are difficult and the homework can take upwards of a few hours, but I genuinely enjoyed coming to this class everyday. It also forced me to learn time management and critical DBQ skills. Do not drop the class, it prepares you for the rest of high school, she is awesome, and you will have a blast!

She's a great, interesting, and fun person but doesn't consider that you have other courses that you receive homework from. Doesn't hesitate to assign 4+ pages of outlines notes or give advance notice of vocab due dates. (Vocab will take you 3+ hours to do and oftentimes you will have a week to do it). So if hours of history homework and endless lecture don't sound like a good time to you don't take her honors class.

the single best teacher i've ever had the honor of learning from. she's an outstanding scholar and you will learn something in her class. it's very difficult, but then again, she teaches honors and ap, so if you're not up for it, don't take it.

My favorite class of the day. As long as you get the work done during class, she lets you get off topic and have the funniest debates. I look forward to her class everyday. I don't know why everyone says that she is so mean because I have never seen her get mad.

She's honestly one of my favorite teachers that I've had this year. I didn't realize how much I really appreciated being in her honors class until the year ended and I was able to see just how much I had learned. She teaches the class just like a seminar, so there's never a dull moment and everyone has to participate to fully understand the material. Yes, her class takes a lot of work (sleepless nights occasionally required), but it's rewarding, exciting, and informative. -JH

She is a little eccentric to say the least but she is a nice person. Dont drop in the beginning of the year its definitely worth staying. The class itself is fun but it is a lot of work. (the volcabs will make you cry). But the midterm and other for her class was much less memorization of specifics so in someways the tests easier. just write A LOT on tests.

I didn't really like cuz her tests are pretty hard, and for essays, she's a pretty tough grader....... if you get her, drop out.
I just hated her class cuz I think she didn't really like me.
Advise from a friend: Don't take her class
If you do, well, then GOOD LUCK (you'll need it)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Her teaching style is to give topics that you must outline for homework and bring in the next day for class discussion. Speak up in class because she loves participation! A lot of work (reading documents, defining sometimes 50 vocab words, outlining chapters) is involved for success, but it's worth it! Love her class discussions~

Dr. Garber lectures, so if that's the way you learn, you'll be fine. She's an easy grader, as long as you do your homework and terms. Never be afraid to write too much in her class. She's a bit dull sometimes, though.
