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.
She made me hate math. I can't believe I had her.
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
Awesome math teacher, I hope to have her again, she is so smart and good at teaching, from being a bio-engineer. Smartest woman I ever met, Keep teaching mrs. bender and make the test curves higher!!!
One of my least favorite teachers. She was very mean and I once got in trouble for helping my tablemate with homework because it was "not homework time"
Really Good Math Teacher. Knows What she's talking about and makes math easier and fun!
Definatly the best math teacher. You understand every thing super easy. But watch out she checks home work every day and gives you homework quizes every cycle.
bender is a great teacher but her tests are unbelieably hard. i learn a lot, but you have to do extra work to stay on top or above median, shes also quite a cool teacher
Strict but nice if you're on her good side. Very clear and understandable. Math is my worst subject and I managed an A- in her class for the first time ever.
bendanator. bad temper. lots of quizzes, but good teacher. strict about dress code. favors boys in my class.
Benda! oh how I love this woman. yes, her class is obscenely hard, but definitely worth it.
Mrs. Bender is a very nice person, although her frankness can be brutal. The subject was a bit technical and formulaic for me.
It's THE Bender to you! Rocket scientist, really. doesn't just tell you how to do something, makes sure you really understand it. slaughtered my GPA, but most I ever learned.
mrs bender is awesome and i love having her as my alg teacher
she's a lot better than some other alg teachers. but yeah, she does make some mean jokes
Excellent math teacher, knows how to get back on task, keep the class in line, provide precise and clear explainations, and keeps class light and fun!
awesome teacher, very strict, throws people out often
