ms. rooney is one of the most intelligent teachers i've had at beverly. she knows what she's doing and actually teaches history. she's nice in a weird way, if you get on her good side. act stupid in her class and she'll treat you like a middle schooler. her class can be a little bit difficult at times but she's very helpful if you just ask her for help.

one of my favorite teachers. she's hard but fair. to do well on her tests, read the chapters and go over the notes. most of the homework will appear as a short answer question on the chapter test. her lectures are really interesting and we always go off topic.

i like her and her lectures, but oh my god, she needs to prepare us better for the bailey test. i spend all my study time doing pages and pages of terms and yet they dont prepare us for the multiple choice at all! she is cool in that she doesnt have us memorize meaningless lists of names and dates, but she makes us write them all out. i really wish she could help us practice what she preaches: to study the major issues and general ideas of the topic rather than waste time doing terms (busywork)

The only things I didn't like in her class were the DBQ's and some test other than that she is a friendly person that gives a managable work load and her movies are great lectures are o.k.

She is so cool! Just study and her class will be fine. The DBQ's are hard, but she prepares you well enough (at least for world history honors)

AP review was really helpful. she's a wonderful person. she's sometimes unclear about homework so you've either got to pay close attention or ask her after class. i recommend you take her for ap. and participate in class. participation is a big component of your grade.

Even though she's probably the most challenging teacher I've ever had, she always has you prepared for tests and is always willing to explain things again. She can also be really funny.

She used to be nice and it was easy to get an A but now it is impossible. All she does is lecture on notes and gives hard tests and essays and grades so tough.
