She's too unfair on the students and tries to impose her own rules thus never bends to teach how the class learns best. I've learned nothing besides her unfairness and ridiculous attitude.

Not a bad person but not a very good teacher. Lot of busy work, have to learn everything yourself out of the textbook. Activities done in class do not relate to what is on quizzes/tests.

Great teacher! She's prepares you really well for APUSH. One thing she has trouble with is dealing with rowdy students in her class, so guys - don't give her trouble, and you'll learn a lot.

Shes really nice and shes very sincere about things. She really wants us students to become successful and schedules lots of make up tests to make sure we actually learn the subject. I like the way she tests us. she loves the subject and teaches well. A lot of people don't give her respect in class because she makes some mistakes but who dosen't? I think that she keeps us busy and i do learn a lo

I agree about the busy work and not slacking. Good at talking to classes but when you're talking to her personally, her smile is questionable. Very cheerful and energetic though. She loves her subject.

Ms.Tiederman really cares about her students. She was willing to take extra time with me to explain stuff I didn't get. Plus she gave me a great recommendation even though I gave her the form at the last minute

this teacher is not that bad just tough. (heres how to get an A: 1) be nice very nice to her and everyone around you try to be kinda quiet when ur supposed to and participate. 2) study from the moment u start her class and her test will be easy, make sure you remember events clearly she will try to trick you on ur tests, just study each chapter by reading it for bout 30 min a day.3) be nice to her

You know... honestly she isn't THAT bad as other teachers I've had... She just sometimes scares me with that really enthusiastic attitude because I have never seen anything like it before... She does treat us like kindergarteners however but all in all she's a good teacher.

I like the way Mrs. Tiederman runs class. I knew nobody in my class at the beginning of the year, and now we all know each other and have a lot of fun. Our class is very energetic for a 2nd period. And if you read the book, take notes, and do your best to remember things, you'll do well (but maybe it's just that I'm good at remember things). But I have to agree with the people who say she treats us like little kids.

she's a great person, although, a TERRIBLE teacher. she's the only history teacher i had that didn't know the facts herself. it was a extremely terrifying experience having history with her.

Taught well if AP Test performance is any indication. You'll only have a reason to hate her if you don't work. Can be a bit... much, but as for her first year teaching APUSH it was alright. In the end, we learned all we had to.

she doenst treat us like highschoolers, and her mind is very scattered 24/7. her class is..not that great, and her way of grading things changes from one to another. i guess thats what it means to have a infant and working at the same time.

ALthough her spirit is a plus.. it tends to become plain scary at times. She also tends to make things confusing on purpose, and teaches us how to write essays the DAY we write them for a grade.
