Awesome teacher who really knows her stuff. She sometimes rants about young people and people with bad finances, but she is actually a nice teacher. She definitely prepares students for the AP Econ exam. Also, tests are easy with generous curves. However, you really have to read and pay attention though.

Great class. Read and be prepared. Arrive on time and actually participate. If you work hard you can earn an A. Ir you font put in time to read and prepare., then you will earn a B or lower. You have to work.

Extremely knowledgeable, very clear in her lectures, and helpful for those who struggle to understand concepts, she is an excellent teacher and well respected because she does a great job not only preparing students for the exam, but also combining economics with real world applications. Enjoyable and light experience if you simply pay attention in class, do the worksheets, and read the book before tests.

She knows economics. But, you have to work in the class. not an easy A but you can usually get a B. Classes are usually big which make getting help not so easy. Not bad as a class

Yes you have to read and go over the material multiple times. This is an AP class. She teaches extremely well and uses great examples albeit her voice can be monotone. Prepare for tests by spending a couple of hours reading the night before and looking over the notes. YOU MUST READ THE TEXTBOOK. Some questions are just facts that she does not have time to go over in class. Others can be supplemented by the textbook if you don't understand anything. Compared to Physics and Calc, this class is ez.

Yes, laid back. Yes, easy-going. Yes, knows her stuff. But that's besides the point.
At times, she is very frustrating. Goes on tangents totally irrelevant to the subject matter and treats the class like a room of monkeys. Once, I told her I would miss class the following week and asked if there was anything important I had to do. Her response: a bucket full of sarcasm, filling my heart with rage and anxiety, an answer that doesn't help the student or herself. I didn't leave her course happy.

She knows her stuff and is willing to help students if they make the effort to come ask for help. Funny too. Will answer your questions even if not exactly what the class requires for the day.

One of my favorite teachers in all four years. Loved the all-senior AP Econ class. She knows her subject, tells funny personal anecdotes and does great imitations of teenage behavior.

She rocks. She loves to teach economics and is willing to help anyone who wants to improve. She has high expectations for behavior. Lots of notes but it is an AP class.

shes a dedicated teacher and quite knowledgeable about economics (she's an ex-certified accountant), and cares for the well-being of her students. She is very laid back and casual - she always talks about her Newport beach days. Tests can be hard, so don't slack off. the class is repetitive.

shes really cool. while the subject of AP econ is boring as hell, she has some intersting stories and an awesome personality. shes pretty lax about stuff too. though she doesnt let you be that late.
