As a student to switch schools in between semesters, I relied on my teachers to fully explain their class course. I ended up with an F on my first progress report. She wouldn't assign homework in class, wouldn't say when tests would be, and didn't even attempt to inform me how to get these assignments as she did it online. When I got an F, she seemed to not care at all, and didn't try to communicate with me until we spoke to the principal. Don't expect her to help or care for your grade.

Mrs. Fuhrman is the most terrible teacher I ever had in my entire educational career. She does absolutely nothing in class, yet expects you to be extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the material. I have no idea how she is still working there when she evidently has no purpose in a classroom setting. If by any chance you end up enrolled in her class, get out immediately. I am not kidding.

I managed to pass the class with a nice grade, but that had nothing to do with the teacher. Her classroom is a complete unorganized mess and so is her teaching. Her lectures somehow never actually provide the information needed in preparation for the test, she continually goes off topic with memories, and large assignments will be given with little warning or instruction. She served no purpose towards me as a student and I found myself having to teach myself with my textbook in order to pass.

she doesnt make her own tests so the info that you read in textbooks or study guide will not help, lots of questions on topics youve never heard before. almost impossible to get an A. would not recommend

Ms. Fuhrman is great as a person, but she cannot teach. Her classroom is always chaotic and out of control. Papers and books everywhere. Her tests are IRRELEVANT to the materials she teaches in class. I do not believe she should teach AP Environmental Science, although if you know her and what kind of person she is, you'll like her class eventually. Only good thing is she doesn't usually assign a ton of homework.

Worst teacher ever. I should've received an A but because of her poor organizational skills a whole project and several major assignments went missing. At the end of the school year i was able to locate 3 of them on her messy desk

horrible horrible teacher. She doesn;t know how to teach a thing and rarely knows what shes doing. You practicaly have to teach yurself everything. The majority of her students have Ds and Fs and a few As,--proof shes bad, Do all the extra credit you can

It seems she's got a lot on her mind and so much to deal with...but none the less, she seems to do her best and cares about how she teaches. So for those of you that are so critical of her, I think she's looking out for our best interest. thumbs up.

Cool teacher. Lectures/notes are sort of methodical (copy a transparency)... though, her humor helps getting through the period.
