I had the BEST math experience with her! After taking her class, you actually get what math is really about. So, Yes, her class is HARD and if you're not prepared to do all your homework, study for

She can really teach but her tests really separate the A students from the rest of the class. I was the only A student in her Alg. H class in Fall'05. She really doesn't give many As.

You can't mess with Engle. She is one of the most helpful math teachers of all time. I'm class of '11 and unfortunally our math department is horrible except for ms. Engle.

Ms. Engle is one of the HARDEST teachers in Lincoln, but she is probably the best teacher in this school. You learn so much. However, her tests are killer, beware.

She's a great teacher, but a hard grader. You could learn a lot from her class though. If you had her class before, trust me,the STAR tests and CAHSEE tests would be really easy compared to her tests

She taught me trig and analytical geometry from 1989-1991. Fantastic, effective, and memorable teacher. Showed genuine interest in her students' *understanding* of the material. Hope she's well.

ms engle is a great person. she IS hard, but i enjoy having her class. she always brings so much fun and energy to the classroom. now i am in college, and have to bear with all these boring professors(lucky enough she didn't ruin my college application as much...phew). i am telling you, you will miss her--in a good or a bad way.

she is hard... my parents aren't that happy with her even though they don't say anything about it. she doesn't count homework but she will lower it if you don't do it, your entire grade is based on your test, and her tests are deadly, you'll always end up with these BIG numbers or No Solution after like ten minites of solving. you should be happy with a D in her class 2.5/10 teacher

I like the way she teaches because it forces me to study at home as well as in school. Sometimes I feel like i am fall behind in that class but i found out that i am not the only one. What i like most about this class is that my grade actually mean something to me. When i get a C+ or above, the feeling is so rewarding that makes me want to stay in her class.
