Dec 02, 2013 This entire class is a joke. If you want to do well, just do well for like the first few weeks or so, she'll see you as a good student on terms of homework so you can just write anything on the homework from that point on and she'll check you off. Flag Rating

Jun 18, 2013 She would yell "SHUT UP" at some students. She was also unprepared because our class was her "first pancake" She'd introduce new material before the quizzes. She also took like 15 minutes to do basic math like 66 12.
On the bright side, her class was rather easy

Jun 18, 2013 Sometimes she would let us talk and make sure we had a lot of review material. She stayed after school to help me understand the material on a lab practical I had to make up. However, she could be really strict and unhelpful. She would assign homework during the middle of the day, and being the "first pancake", she would expect us to complete the assignment, even though we had no idea about it. She picked on some kids for talking even if they weren't. Her tests ranged from easy to really hard :P Flag Rating

Nov 16, 2012 I don't really like her to be honest.
There are obviously favorites and we are always her "first pancake" class so she is so unprepared. One time, i was late for french(teacher so strict on bein gon time) and i had to write down vocab 30 secs before class ended. She also puts a lot of stuff on my test thats wrong and marks them as right which is okay I guess.

Apr 06, 2012 She's strict she always is like pay attention! But after she says that and makes us pay attention everyone listens then she blabs on about something unscience related! Her quizzes are extremeley difficult I got an f in her class! Because I'm not good at memorizing things and she just gives you the quiz amswers then tells you to memorize it and rather than having a review day she teaches you a brand new lesson wich is confusing Flag Rating

Oct 14, 2006 She's really funny...but she's kind of weird and she's clueless to what's going on in the class...you can do whatever you want, really. SHE EVEN LET'S YOU CHEW GUM! But she can give a lot of homework. She gave us a worksheet that she said should take us 20 minutes to do...the whole class agreed that it took them near ONE HOUR. Flag Rating
