She judges people a lot and she does try to favor students, mostly guys. She can have a nasty attitude and always demands respect but at times she doesn't respect either. I liked her in the beginning

Too much groupwork, not enough time. Unfair tests where she can change anything at the blink of an eye. Sloppy handwriting, unclear notes. Very vague overall. Hypocrite. Alot of ppl dont like her :|

you either like her or dislike her...for me, i didnt like her that much... she rambles about herself and her life a bit too much and she makes you do projects about helping others/volunteering, her tests are pretty hard so study! if you do very well on exams and participate a lot in class, she'll probably like you

MS. Mahabir is the bets teacher. She's corny which makes her classes much more intresting and she stays on her topic if you don't get it. People who say she doens't teach well obvious they never gave her the chance.
