Sure, she's funny and I can vouch for her awesome personality. But teach? No. Not at all...I didn't want to cheat like the others and ended up with a C both semesters...I didn't learn squat in Geometr

Mrs. A is a great hearted person, but not the best teacher.She teaches well although if you go up to her and ask her a question.When she's in a bad mood, stay away from her. That was my mistake.

Amitstead's such a chill teacher (or at least on even days). Her teaching methods are the best. Just, always pay attention in her class, and go ask her for help if you don't understand something.

Easy teacher, just do the work and if you dont get it, ASK! She is really nice. The only reason someone would be failing that class is if the homework wasn't done. No tests, nothing.

I enjoyed her class! Her humor kept the day from going stale. The Alg 1 class was easy (I did all Homework, though), but there are times when I do not understand her lessons. However, she always made time for me after school to help--always!! A part from being a teacher who cares about her students understanding the material, she gives personal advice as well. If you build a connection with her, you will have an effective mentor on your side. Thanks for looking out for me while a HS freshmen and beyond!
