Ms Narvaez is very smart, but she does not know how to teach at all. I tried so hard in her class, and I asked for help and I got sarcastic comments and she had even insulted me pretty frequently. Her tests are ridiculously hard. I couldn't write due to an injury but she made me take a test anyway, and i couldn't write down any equations and she counted the test twice. She's very ruthless and doesn't know how to explain things. She is funny, however.

This is the WORST TEACHER. She gives us very little notes in class and if you try to ask her to explain she tell you to keep up even if you don't understand. How is that teaching. The tests are super hard and she doesn't prepare you for them. She caters to honors students because they already know the work. She is not very helpful and can be very mean. I'm afraid to even ask her questions because she will embarrass you. I thought teachers we supposed to help you.

I know a lot of you will say that she has an accent but that's just make me knowing you never even try to listen to her.
I used to think that at the beginning of the school year but if you really listen to her and try, she is an amazing amazing teacher that anyone can ask for. I remember how scared I was in the summer because chem is hard (according to a lot of people), but it turns out to be the opposite! She is the best and stop trying to make her seem like she's not

Honestly she is a bad teacher. All we do is copy notes which she gives a few moments to copy. We never have any class work to help understand the curriculum and her test are extremely hard. She is a bad teacher and her accent doesn't help .

Best science teacher ever. Her method of teaching is amazing. Yes, she does have an accent, but it's not like you can't understand her. She can be strict at times, but not mean. She's awesome.

She's really nice and makes corny jokes. Her accent makes difficult to understand at times, but not that bad. She goes kinda quick with her slide shows, so write notes fast. Her exams are decent alot of them are regents exams but if you are in honors, she will give some SAT 2 material. Make sure to raise your hand/answer in class she will like you!!!!

She is a good teacher when she is having a good day. Took a while for her to actually take an intrest in my grade. I'm a student that doesn't give up. I wasn't doing well in her class and when I went to to speak about my grade I asked her if she gives extra credit or assignments to being up student's grades. Her reply to me was "Why?" I then said thank you for time and left the class. Now she has warmed up to the class I guess and acts less of a stranger and actually looks like she cares

I find this class to be my downfall. She failed me first quarter and i'm still striving for a 65 as we speak. She doesn't like when you take to many notes and doesn't care much if you fail. All she says is so what if you fail. She's the worst as a teacher. She's a good person though.

This is my first year having her, but so far she seems nice. At some points it is a little bit difficult to understand what she is saying, but she does try to explain and allows you to do work (including homework in class) and assists you if needed.
