She is in the top 3 teachers I've had in this district, probably had even number 1. She is nice, sympathetic, and knowledgeable. She helped me get in all the advanced classes in high school and she puts an abundance of effort into teaching us about past and current events in the world. I can't express enough gratitude for her work as a teacher.

Mrs. Gaffney is the nicest teacher I've had so far. She is very very VERY nice, caring, and understanding. She makes school a more fun place to be.

She'll challenge you (which is really why she's there), but she's always there to lend a helping hand when needed and she really wants you to succeed. Very supportive.
