She's really fun, I look forward to her class every day. Puts her powerpoints on Google classroom so you don't have to write down everything. Makes history interesting by adding her own flair and fun facts. Some tests in the beginning of the year have questions about specific years, but they're pretty easy if you study. I don't like history at all and her textbook homeworks are a pain, but the class is great. Try to get a head start on studying and textbook readings, it can get stressful.

Her lectures were really interesting and she was a nice person. We took notes from a powerpoint and her tests had a lot of questions on specific facts.

Fantastic classroom presence, she's energetic and vibrant and the lectures are lovely and engaging. Has never said a mean thing in class. Having to do textbook readings is no surprise...it's a history class, you read things to learn ofc. Fair grader on essays, just make sure to write quickly and be comprehensive. Buy the Ethel Wood book to help you study for her tests and the AP exam. Sometimes tests random dates on exams, which is annoying. Best APWH teacher! #Riggio2020

Way too much textbook work for one class. She explains well and seems into what she is talking about but that's about it. She arrives at only a little before class so she never notices som *ahem* annoying before class antics and she seems to be somewhat clueless about people in general but if you learn by hearing her explaining history is her saving grace.

Really funny when she's teaching a lesson, but talking to her alone can be a bit awkward. Her humor makes the class interesting. Raise your hand during class. Always read the textbook, her tests will have questions that are based on textbook material. Towards the beginning of the year, her tests will have really specific questions like dates (month and year) and places, but towards the end of the year her tests will mimic the AP exam and be more analytical and comprehensive.

Class is very "college" structured. Class runs pretty smoothly. Don't worry about the summer reading test, the average was about a 60-70 with curve.

She's alright. But she loses major points becuase of her ego. Come on, you're teaching an AP class. Kids will be smarter than you. Thats just how it goes.
