VVV I Agree with that person VVV when I was in her class, everything seemed unnecesary and excessive, but looking back her class really played a large role in helping me grow alot as a student. I wish

At first I thought she was a little harsh, but looking back she is one of the best teachers I've ever had. Very nice, and cares about her students

I don't believe assigning us chapter notes every night counts as teaching

A really nice teacher who cares about her students and wants them to do well. However be prepared to do ALOT of work. Grades harshly but always has her reasons. Is fair and always gives opportunities.

She starts out seeming really tough but as the year goes on you have more fun and the class gets a little easier

Toughest teacher I've ever had. Still, she does care about her students and wants them to do well. And she can be nice. Don't expect amazing marks in her class. And be prepared to work your butt off.

she's really funny but has intense mood swings (sometimes really happy but sometimes evil). pretty much the whole course is notes, but class is pretty interesting.

Hard grader but she makes class interesting and you can always do more extra credit if you need it.
P.S. pray that it is sunny outside when she is grading your tests.

Let's leave it at this. If you can survive Duncan, as in average an A/B+, you're a pretty good student.

Expect to get decent grades only if you are amazing at history or a teacher's pet/total suckup. She is often frazzled/incoherent in class, so expect to come after school at least a few times for help.

She is never available, if she is having a bad day she takes it out on the class, is an extremely hard grader, and plays favorites. If you aren't willing to work EXTREMELY hard switch out.
