She is really smart and knows EVERYTHING about history, but she doesn't give clear instructions EVER and gives two different versions of the homework, one in class and one online. She grades really harsh. She used to teach only AP/Honors classes and now she teaches a CP, so it's a ton of work for people who didn't sign up for it. She's pretty unfair a lot of the time and a little all over the place, but it's an interesting class and she challenges you to prepare you for college.
oh stacey! she helped me a lot, but she gave us ridiculous amounts of work and was such a hard grader!
She was an extremely good teacher. She teaches well, but she can be a hard grader, but I suppose that makes us better. She is very nice, but just don't slack off in her class!
now that i have novak it makes me see how much of a better teacher she was, wish i had her again
Love her! She's an awesome teacher because she's really enthusiastic and knows her stuff. People are complaining because they are LAZY.
Not easy. But we do learn a lot. She could stop acting like an English teacher. Overall not a bad teacher.
Has a lot of knowledge but has a difficult time clearly communicating exactly specific ideas and points. This makes it hard in figuring out what she wants.
Difficult class.... WHAT IS WITH ALL THE TESTING?? She doesn't seem to realize that we understand when the topic is discussed.. not when it is tested on
everyone quit your whining. if you do what you're supposed to you'll understand. ok, so her tests are hard. i had her in 8th grade. i still remember everything
she is an awesome teacher! the work she gave us was hard, but it really paid off. i learned a lot in that class. (and btw honors history was harder than cp)
shes a really good teacher! very clear and gets to the point, doesnt like too many littel Lenin details! shes hard but good
dude, poelstra rocks.and all you fish (freshman) are lucky because you get her two years in a row. haven't had many teachers that are better.
While she is very nice, she can be slightly unmerciful. It is hard to stay on top of things in her class as she moves very quickly but doesn't acheive much.Obviously enjoys history though, she needs to be a bit less harsh when grading. better suited 4 hon
pick one ENGLISH or HONORS HIST. just get out of our classroom... just go away!!
I love the primary sources she gives us to read...a great intellectual challenge
