I had her for drivers ed, so I cannot attest to her math teaching skills, but in the car she was always very easy going, helpful, and encouraging. She would point out mistakes and would tell you how to fix it and make sure to point out when you did well or improved. Overall a great teacher.

I had her for Precalc. Pretty straightforward - do your homework, take notes, and use them before tests and the class won't be a problem. She's nice if you're nice to her, and vice versa.

I had Ms. Gamelm for my senior year Pre-Calc class. She was basic, and her style worked well for me. An average day in her class consists of a small lecture for the 1st half of class and then time to work on classwork/homework. If you have questions you can go and ask her and I found her responses very helpful. She is a very good teacher if you are an independent student who doesn't need much help. If you are constantly confused in math, this teacher may not be the best option.

Not the best teacher of all time, but I like her. Also, it says I need 50 characters so I'm just typing this sentence out now.

If you need a lot of help understanding math, she is not the teacher for you. If you are fine reading the book and paying attention when she tries explaining, you will be fine. Her tests are much easier than the other teachers and she is very lenient in class.

Doesn't teach at all. I had to have another teacher tutor me because I was so lost and confused, and trust me I wasn't the only one.

I had her last year, and I'm in her class this year again D=. Is it just me, or does Mrs. Gamlem go really fast? Yeah, I think she does. So if you don't get the concept, you're going to be left in the dust, not knowing anything. Other than that, she's a pretty cool teacher, and she is nice to her students.

EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. She is a nice person, but she does not care if you do well in her class or not. Teaches in a style that either you get, or you dont. If you dont, U R screwed

I like her. The class is kind of hard, most people don't finish their homework in class although we get all period. She explains things well, if you listen. I have 100%.

She is WAY too serious about her job. She needs to lighten up in order to make class more tolerable for everyone. Good class tho. U learn alot from her.
