*Shiver* Ms. Ryan would always give my class the tests, then since we never finished them, cut off the problems we DID finish, making the problems that the rest of the class didn't finish count more, worsening the classes grades. I don't think anyone my year got above a B for the Honors class.

In all honesty, she's the worse math teacher I've ever had. She didn't teach much, and she kind of expected us to understand things at a rapid pace, not really realizing how different Geometry Honors was from Algebra 1. Her class spent the whole year complaining about how confused we were.

She isn't easy going unless you get on her good side, which takes a little bit of kissing up. But she isn't bad as a person once she likes you. She could use a little work on her teaching though.

Mrs. Ryan is a really nice person, but she has turned my best subject, math, into my worst this year.

Debby Ryan is the reason why there are unions in the schools...to keep incompetents like her from being fired.

She shoud not be teaching Honors Math; apparently she has no feel for the structure of the material or how subjects build upon each other

She is beyond reproach. She does not believe in teaching the required material; instead the students can learn it on their own. Thus far, not impressed w/ Math Dept.

Apparently she is not clear and as a result it's difficult to learn; and I understand that going to extra help does not help either.

Mrs. Ryan is a very nice woman, and if you behave in her class she'll treat you well. The problem is that she's quite unclear in her teaching. Do the hw if you want to learn.
