Mrs Burnett is the BEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD. She cares so much about her students. She does everything she can to help students understand. I wanted to give up and drop out of the class but she encouraged me and now I'm getting the highest grades in class. I was devastated that she was retiring.I stay after school all the time, it's very helpful becaus I usually do t understand the lesson when we learn it in class but I understand better after school. I love mrs Burnett and I will miss her.

She will be one of the best teachers you'll ever experience. I will admit I was frustrated with skill drills, but she is helping you to become better. I really like her, because she tries her best so much. Hope to see her in geometry again.

Mrs. Burnett is a wonderful teacher. She may not be very organized, but she is so dedicated to helping her students. If you are like I was, struggling and confused, stay after school! She helped me so much and the only reason I didn't fail was because she stayed after. It's sometimes hard to focus in her class, because many people excel at math, but I promise you, just stay after school or go during lancer time and you will be able to understand and even enjoy all her stories in class!

She is an amazing person with an innate understanding of how to teach. Many students, like myself, say she explains poorly. Mrs. Burnett has to teach a class of varying levels. I strongly advis you to stay at lancer time and after school if you are unsure. She may be confusing in class but she excels at 1 on 1. She makes it seem easy. Don't just judge her based on the fact that some kids are amazing at math and some aren't and she can't teach them all at the same time.

She's extremely hardworking and cares a lot about her students. Yeah, she gives a ton of homework, but it's actually really helpful. I learned a lot in her class. I used to dislike math in the beginning of the year and now I like it because of her. As long as you do your homework and aren't super rude, she'll like you.She's not half as strict as some of these reviews say. In fact, she's pretty chill. Great teacher and cool person to be around.

She was a good teacher and cares about her students but have out way itoo much homework, even on test days. She was always willing to stay after school for help, though. However, she is very unorganized. One time my class was supposed to have a test but she LOST THE TEST so we didn't have it. She also has the " wall of fame" where she puts all of the best test scores which is cool if you are on it, but embarrassing if you are not. I also hate the skill drills she makes us do. Overall rating 7/10

Mrs. Burnett is a good teacher however, after 16 years she has not developed a good teaching style. In Mrs.Burnets class we do warm-ups, check HW, and get assigned HW. Honestly she could be helping student get better grades. Two quarters in a row I missed honor role because of this one class. Im not saying Mrs.Burnetts a bad teacher, but she needs a better way of teaching whats on the test. And Finn, if your reading this PLEASE stop distracting the teacher and let other people ask questions!

Ms.Burnett is one of the most caring teachers I have ever met. Math is not at all a strong spot for me but she took me from C's at the beginning of last year to a pass advanced on the SOL. She is one of the only teachers I have ever met who knows their subject backwards forwards and upside down. I stayed after many times throughout last year and she was so kind and helped me a ton! I definetly recomend doing that If you have any difficulty. She is the most dedicated teacher I have ever had!

All she does is assign us tons of homework every night out of the textbook, even on test days and the days before them. She is not a teacher, for all she does is project the textbook onto the board and act like we already know all of it. She never gives extra time on quizzes and tests, even though they can be as long as 5 pages and we don't have a lot of time in the first place. She she doesn't care at all about helping students. She's a horrific teacher.

Mrs.Burnett is the best teacher I have EVER HAD. Everybody talks about how terrible and off topic she is and how strict she is but she is honestly amazing if you're not arrogant or rude or disruptive. If you are stupid (like me) I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING AFTER SCHOOL EVERY CHANCE U HAVE. It will make u get on her good side and if ur on her good side she will be super lenient with you on tests and quizes. Also amazing help! Classes are hard to understand but stay after school it's ESSENTIAL.

Some people fall in love with Barb; let me reiterate my word choice of "SOME". She speeds the class up so fast that you could be doing a whole chapter in a week. She teaches straight from the book, so you might as well spend the whole time fondling its text rather than actually listening in class. She picks favorites and can be rather rude sometimes. She expects you to know everything already, and she won't care if you get left behind. If you get her, switch into Mr. Huang!!

I liked her class until I was absent one day and had to retake a quiz. I finished then handed it to her, but she lost it, so it went as a 0 on my grade report, bringing it down to a C+. I asked her everyday for three weeks whether she had found it and whether I should retake it. She declined and repeatedly said that she would find it and that there was no need for another retake. She never found it and it brought my high school credit course final term grade to a B when I could've gotten higher.
