The class can be moderately difficult, but it varies from student to student and the time put in. Great teacher, explains well.
I had Ms. Steelman for CS 1,2, and 3 back in 2007 -2010. She taught the material in a very clear and concise manner and made her expectations very clear. The skills and education I gained in her class have helped me throughout university as well as in my career as a software engineer. One of the best teachers at the school.
i LOVE LOVE LOVE ms. steelman! best cs teacher ever. explains everything well and gives ample time for assignments.
Some may say that her class is hard but in reality she is just preparing you for what life will be like in a more professional atmosphere of programming. You have to be dedicated to her class, but if you do, you will succeed. She spends a day or two explaining what it is that you have to write and then you just write it, very hands-on. The only really hard thing about the class are the tests because when you actually write the program you can press run but you cant on the test. But overall, good
one of the worst teachers at the school. had her last year - barely got an A. doesn't teach (SHE ACTUALLY DOESN'T DO ANYTHING), doesn't really help students either -- relies too much on student assistants. tests are usually hard - again nothing was taught. somewhat strict grader when it comes to programs too. computer science just isn't taken seriously in this school :\
Ignorant, lazy, and obsessive. If it's not her way, it's not any way. One of the worst teachers in the school. Grades extremely harshly, but you can always get an A since she always makes mistakes when writing tests.
She is a very fun teacher and she is nice. I am not very good at programming so I had a hard time but that is just me. She is the best teacher ever in terms of being nice.
I took AP Programming 2 without Programming 1 or programming knowledge due to her recruitment. She really went out of her way to make sure I caught up and understood the material, and I always felt I could ask for help. Her class is very relaxed but not a joke, little to no homework, and she's generally flexible with deadlines. Great teacher!
I learned so much in 3 years of programming with her, very good teacher and she made the class very fun
After having a year of Monshi for Programming 1, I have to say that this year with Steelman was been a pleasant surprise. Instead of lecturing, she works side-by-side with you to make sure you get it.
I had her my first three years at churchill for C++, CS, and CS AB. Though the class is hard, she tries her best to teach the material to you. dont worry about if you dont understand programming after you finish the class because I am so glad I took the course since it makes MatLab so much easier in college
She's a good, fun teacher who tries her best to help her students. She goes over some complex stuff but if you don't understand the concepts you can always go to her for help.
Mrs. Steelman teaches her class geared towards the kids who don't know their stuff as well as others. This is good if you have trouble with the concepts, but if you truly get it, you will find the note days unbearable. While she doesn't help with everything, she will do her best in every case.
good, fun teacher, agree that she can be moody occasionally
i LOVE mrs steelman. shes the nicest teacher EVER and she is so funny. i love to hear all the ridiculous stories about some of her other classes.
She is a great teacher - the best comp sci. teacher i've had. even though i didn't do too well on the ap java...
Horrible, doesn't help, just refers you onto other students or the book, barely knows the material.
Some times its hard to understand the concepts, but its still a great class. makin programs and all.she allows you to use the teachers guide but its still hard!
Steelman has some ups and some downs. Overall I had a good experience with AP Computer Science, but there were a few rough times...
THE BEST PROGRAMMING TEACHER! i loved mrs steelman & noone should refute that...she is a great teacher and was so funny.allowed u 2 be urself and liked u for it
Excellent teacher. Does a great job explaining things college profs can't. She has a desire to help her students. I respect her greatly.
Very good teacher. Very funny. She actually knows programming.
She is THE reason Churchill's computer science program is so good.
Mrs. Steelman is awsome... she offers help when necessary and has a sense of humor
i like the way she conducts the class; whether you're more of an independent learner or one that thrives in a classroom environment, you learn the material.
it's impossible to sleep in her class even though it's only programming! but she's a good teacher.
I love this woman. She makes programming a pleasure.
she is awesome! the class is so free and she makes learning this fun! a good example of open ended learning
boy do i hate MBCS, but she is helpful making it all good
steelman is the BEST teacher. shes really fun and understanding but she also knows how to assert herself as the teacher/authority figure. the class would be a lot harder except she's really good at explaining things.
