I had her for Honors Algebra. Half way trough the year she sent me to regular Algebra. She said I couldn't handle honors. When my dad heard he put me back in honors. I have an engineering degree from an Ivy League school, so who was right?

Do your work and don't mouth off and she will respect you. She will push you hard, but the results are worth it. She is always ready for help before or after school which is good because class moves quickly. The homework load is alot, but i suppose you get the practice you need. She definetly knows alot about what she is teaching.

She is so mean! Whenever she actually teaches us something new, she says "you guys should know this already." She is not pleasurable to be around and is slightly scary.

While I did not do so well in her Algebra 1 class last year, she prepared me to go on and retake it this year, where I got an A. She's really nice if you let her know that you want to succeed.
