My review is kinda out of order FYI.
She's very organized and moves quickly. She can get mad when the kids act out of line. Also has a bias towards girls. Doesn't really teach, just passes out work and expects kids to figure it out. If you want a hands on teacher who walks through concepts, don't take her class. Expect to teach yourself most of the material.

These reviews are messed up. I think I know who wrote most of them. We deserved your bad grade and you got in trouble because you don't do any work and act out in class. Ms. Hataishi is tough but a good teacher. She is tough on students that like to clown around. If you need help she's there for you and she really cares about her students learning math.

I was told by another student today about the generally horrible reviews given to Mrs. Hataishi and its frankly sad to see. She is a very good teacher. While she can be strict it is for the benefit of her students and if you need help, she is always there.

Reading these reviews is painful. A bunch of students that did poorly in Mrs. Hataishi's class are given a platform to blame someone other than themselves for their poor performance. I was in Mrs. Hataishi's class I can honestly say that she was one of the most caring and knowledgable teachers I've had at Pali. Is the class easy ? Mrs. Hataishi has always made herself available for anyone that falls behind. She believes in rules and accountability. If you want to learn math, she wonderful.

Horrific teacher and person. She should go to anger management classes. Also, someone needs to educate her in the art of teaching. This women probably has a counterfeit degree from an online university. Finally, a priest or pope needs to perform an exorcism on her malicious soul to free her from her inner demons.

Ms. Hataishi is difficult, yes, but she is always there for her students. I've found that her biggest critics don't seek her help with the concepts or meet her halfway. She will push you, and bake for you.

i laugh reading at all of these reviews. i admit her class was pretty hard but while most of us students are laid-back and relatively lazy, she is the antithesis. She is very strict, uptight about every rule, and does not allow class clowns to highjack the education of the class. She also can be funny and "chill" at times. I got a C in her class first semester but that's because I didn't most of the work, 2nd semester I got a B. She definitely has favorites!!! if ur not her fav, then good luck!

She is by far the meanest and most cruel teacher my son had a Pali. And she does not teach the subject. You will need a tutor to pass and will learn very little. Better to take a class online and get out.

She is terrible. I had to hire a tutor and pay him so much money to survive this class with a good grade. Switch out somehow. She is horrible, a prime example of the terrible math department at the school. She does not teach and when she does it never helps. I truly believe that she knows the material but she doesn't deliver it to the students and she can embarrass in front of everyone. Has favorites. Grading became easier near the end of the year, however.

If you are not naturally good at math, pray that you do not get her as a teacher. If you ever ask her for help she will reply "well what do you think the answer is?" and she has no heart.
