Well.. She isn't the best teacher in the world but I must say that she's very knowledgable, which she's suppose to be. She does have some biases but who doesn't. Sure, teachers are not suppose to highlight there biases during class but she does it (sometimes). The subject that she teaches is VERY boring so don't expect to watch comedy movies in a history class.. The subject is dry but she teaches well.. She'll be nice IF she feels that you're not someone who hates studying / life ;)

Mrs. Alstrom rambles on during lessons. Although she is very knowledgable, she gets off topic which causes the class to lose interest. She uses a powerpoint for every lesson which doesn't always engage the class.

She talks a lot. Her topics of conversation are pretty interesting, but completely irrelevant to the work she gives. Basically, she wastes time talking about things while we can be doing work...and then she'll complain that we don't do work. Of course, it's expected to be done at home, but talking about something irrelevant doesn't help us keep the relevant things in mind.

It took her probably all term for her to remember me by name. She thought I was someone else, who evidently skipped a lot of her classes! I was so confused, didn't she recognize me by my face? I asked to pick up an assignment and she said "Oh, I don't think I have yours, I only have this person's here" And I was like... "That is me", and she looked so confused. Also, when you ask her a question she doesn't really get down to the point. She'll start off GREAT but then get totally off topic.

Mrs. Allstrom is a GOOD teacher! I had her for both religion and society change. Terrific classes, she is very knowledeable and informed. Classes are always interesting, because she talks about real life and makes you think. What I really liked is that she lets you express yourself and she is open to discussions. Some students often pull her off topic, but I like the fact that she allows us to express ourselves, and it gives people who don't normally talk an opportunity to be included. Great experience!

She talks a lot... And half the time you can't even follow what she's even talking about, because she likes to pull random things out of her head. For example, a student asks a question about a certain topic, she'll talk about it for maybe 2 minutes and then get sidetracked with a mini subject and talk about that for half an hour, all of which has no relevance. She marks easy though.

If you have Ms. Alstrom you're very lucky. She is one of the few teachers who is incredibly learned on the subject she teaches. She teaches World Religions unbiased. If you want to learn, you will.

Mrs Alstrom is great. Be best part of her class is when the little know-it-alls really stick to their guns and are wrong and I get to laugh at their expense. But she's really a great teacher.

Mrs. Alstrom is great. She'll help you if you ask and is detailed in her overhead notes. I like it when she gets off topic; I remember the general ideas behind her points when she provides information a couple different ways. The only thing I don't like is when she picks us to ask a question out of no where. It's a little scary. Okay it's a lot scary!

I like Mrs Alstom. She gets us absorbed in most of the things she teaches us. Sure, she doesn't always stay on topic, but that usually makes it more interesting.

While some of her lessons are interesting, I find that she has a tendency to make students space out a little. I also find her quite intimidating.

I hate civics class, although very easy and I would be getting a 98 (Getting 93 because I didn't hand something in :P), I don't like Mrs. Alstrom. She blabs on about things, I would tell you what they were but I forget. The only teacher in my life where I have not been able to pay attention to someone talking for more than 2 minutes. I honestly forget what she's said after the first few minutes because civics is so boring and unnessescary.Hasn't taught me anything I hadn't allready knew.
