She is a great teacher. She can be mean if kids fool around, but teaches well... which is what teachers are for. She does take the thinking out of math. You can do exceptionally well in her class by just studying a lot. She teaches you methods and shows you have to show your work. Great teacher.

Ms. Kaplan is a very strict woman. Coming in from Mr. Saya's, she's kind of a bummer. Most of her quizzes are medium level and the tests are medium too. But, if you're going to do well with a teacher like Ms. Kaplan you need to get on her good side. Never miss anymore than a free on HW, always come to class prepared, never forget to bring your notebook to school, and always come to after school when she's there (she takes attendance)!
Once you get to know her she's actually a very nice woman.

She is good, if not better, at teaching than Mr. Saya, but she's really boring, so her students are always less interested. Every class, you sit and take notes, so you never do anything hands-on. Still, no one ever leaves class without understanding something. TIP: STAY AFTER-she likes you a lot more :)

Incredibly knowledgable. If I ever know .000001% of what she does in math than I will be super proud! She knows how to keep her class in line and has an effect on her students that no other teacher has (Mr. Raff would kill to be able to handle a class like that)! Just with a few words like, "Is that the best use of your time?" she has every kid wrapped around her finger. She teaches me sooooo much! Sure, she doesn't joke around as much as Mr. Saya, but she teaches us MATH- what we came for!
