Extremely well-educated and caring person, but some of the assignments are very confusing (and lacking in application to our current education, in my opinion). Theory of knowledge should be condensed severely, it adds no value whatsoever. Regardless, Volksen inspires plenty of students and is an asset to UAHS.
She tries to make the class more fun when it's boring. She's a good teacher.
Mrs. Volksen is without a doubt one of the best teachers I have ever had. Her course materials are challenging, but she makes class engaging and thought-provoking. I was encouraged by her enthusiasm to keep pushing forward and look at things through multiple perspectives. Her classes are not ones that you can slack in since the pace is rigorous, so make sure you keep up with the assignments and listen to her instruction. She also loves cats, so you'll hear stories about them. :)
Everyone else explained how she is very well, she is good if you want a somewhat easy teacher
Intelligent, compassionate , caring, determined. Made learning fun!
I'm in her etymology class and I love it! Totally signed up for the class on a whim and I don't regret it at all. The course is invaluably useful and she really tries to unify the class. I would absolutely recommend the class, it's really interesting.
Loved her. So helpful and kind.
A knowledgable and talented teacher who cares about her students and helps them learn and become better writers. Hands down the best teacher I've ever had.
Smartest, best teacher ever. Really makes a diffrence
Probably THE best teacher I've ever had. No teacher has ever made me think or will to achieve as much as she has. She helps when help is needed but teaches you how to be an individual as well. LOVE he
Best teacher I've ever had. Very understanding and thoughtful.
One of the smartest people I have ever met. It's incredible how she can speak off the cuff and really open your mind. Very good at what she does.
she is very special u wont find anyone like her anywhere else. she appreciates hardworkers. sometimes she gets too emotional and cry during class but i still love her! my favorite!
One of the most interesting people I've ever met. She's dedicated to creative writing (which is one of the reasons I aced the course, we only had one timed writing, and she never finished grading it).
Her class helped me so much to develope as a writer. It was ridiculously hard, but it was worth it.
I love Volksen, she cares about what she teaches and the people she teaches it to. She is also fun and interesting, and is willing to work with students. She is the only teacher i know who asks the students what they want to do and who really appreciates honesty. I am requesting her next year.
amazing at explaining things. The way she explained walden was amazing, it was actually inspiring although i hated the book
Really enjoyed her as a teacher and a person. If you have her definitely talk to her out of class. She's a really interesting person who is more than willing to help you with what you need. She's great for bouncing ideas off of.
Lazy teacher. Took forever to grade. She didn't get out final projects graded in time by the end of the year. Was supposed to send them, but never did. Waste of time class.
Definatly one of my favorite teachers. She knows how to get you to think and learn without destroying your social life. She was all about quality and not quantity.
the semester-long class ended 4 months ago and she still hasnt returned summer reading work. i feel bad because shes really stressed all the time though
Ms. Volksen is a great teacher and great person. My advice for her is to decrease the number of presentations because they take too much time for not such a valuable result.
Havent learned a single thing. She doesnt grade anything so I dont know what to change. We just read.
Very understanding. Doesn't fake her emotions or simile like some of the other teachers ...
Ms. V- I love your class and look forward to it every day. You manage to teach us and make us think without monopolizing our time. Keep up the good work!
Ms. Volksen is an amazing teacher. Not only does she make english more interesting and fun than any other teacher I've ever had, she's just a great person.
i loved english until i had mrs volksen as a teacher, she ruined the subject for me. she is an awful teacher and should quit
I love everything about her. shes artistic,funny,and likes intersting things such as eastern philosiphy. it's just that her personality sucks.
Ms. Volksen you're one of the better English teahcers I've ever had, you're always nice, helpful, and have a great sense of humor. Don't change and miss you!!
