One of the worst gym teachers you'll ever get. She favorites her athletic students who try very very very hard. She expects everyone to be a All Star and go pro in everything you do in gym. If that doesn't happen you're pretty much shunned by her. Ask for a different gym teacher. You will regret the year if you have her.

Seems to care about her class learning about fitness and stuff, but sometimes comes across as a bit condescending when most people aren't good at whatever we're doing. For instance, when our class ran the mile she remarked it was kind of "pathetic" the number of students who got in the healthy zone. She frequently says things like this during activities, which I'm sure makes the people who aren't good at sports feel bad. Other than that she is usually quite nice.

Nice teacher, but a little too serious about what we do (she gets too competitive into the activities).

While maintaining her tough gym teacher persona, she is kind and cares somewhat about students. Takes grading a bit too seriously, but good teacher overall.

the dictator of the gym, the master of the badmitten, Queen of the dodgeball, ruler of physical education. An iron fist is the only language students know

She failed me in my junior year because I didn't make up my classes, I didn't know and I wasn't skipping because I didn't like that class, I didn't anyway, there was some circumstances in my life I didn't like the way she taught me and the other students
