Ms. Bender is THE BEST teacher ever!!! You're blessed to have her. She's extremely intelligent and helpful. You just need to ask for help. She makes the course so much more fun because she loves what she does and finds a way to crack a few jokes along the way. She's genuine. She's awesome.

One of the best math teachers you can get at Punahou, she really knows her stuff. She's the type of teacher to dedicate her time to her students, especially if you need help by going to see her after school. Her sharp wit and humorous persona made math class more lively. Thanks Mrs. Bender for a bomb math class!

Drea the slaya!! Mrs. Bender's class is not for the weak, but she is a true math wizard and an understanding, sharp, efficient teacher if you're ready for class. Probably the best math teacher I've ever had. She's legendary!

She treated me very unfairly, and even sent me out of the class when I had done nothing wrong. I felt extremely picked on, and went home crying numerous times. I despised math the whole year that I was in her class, and eventually had to bring up her behavior to my dean because she treated me so badly.

Pretty terrible teacher. She doesn't answer questions, instead she'll just give a "funny" answer that evades the question and creates more confusion. I'm really good at math and still get confused from time to time in her class just because she's so bad at teaching. She also plays favorites (or rather, un-favorites) and whoever she doesn't like will get in trouble for answering their deskmate's question, whereas her favorites text and do other homework without punishment. She needs to be fired

I had a very hard time with her during the year, and she is also a very strict teacher. You also need to ask her for help if you're struggling because she is a tough grader

Mrs. Bender is a very nice person, although her frankness can be brutal. The subject was a bit technical and formulaic for me.
