Feb 24, 2012 No longer teaching math because of numerous parent complaints. So now she is "teaching" freshman science and physics!! It is painfully obvious that she is not qualified to teach these classes. Look at her homepage on school website. There is no mention of what college she graduated from, degrees, credentials, or professional organizations she belongs to! Only that "I've always had a passion for science"!! Who doesn't list their qualifications and accomplishments? Someone who isn't qualified! Flag Rating

Jun 08, 2011 I simply cannot believe that the posts praising her are from students. Does she have a math credential? Does she understand the material she is teaching? Flag Rating

Aug 22, 2010 I think she rated herself several times, and that is the only reason that her ratings aren't all 1's. Does she have a degree in math? Flag Rating
