Ms. Tran is not great. Her geometry students constantly complain about her, and she sets her standards really high for her students, without helping them. Her notes aren't helpful or interactive at all, since it's all fill in the blank (for geometry, at least), and she assigns homework every single day. Her tests are difficult, and she doesn't offer much help unless you ask for it personally. All she does is sit up in the front and talk. She also ends up droning a lot, and it makes me sleepy.

During first quarter, I have to admit that I did not like math with Mrs. Tran. She goes extremely fast, with a LOT of HW. However, I also soon realized that she tries hard as a teacher and is patient and willing to do as much as possible for her students. She has NEVER gotten mad at a student, and the atmosphere in the classroom is relaxing. You can always go to her for help, and though her tests are a bit hard, she IS preparing you for high school. THX MRS. TRAN FOR JUST BEING YOU. :)

ONE OF THE NICEST TEACHER IN OAK,I don't know why people hate her so much. She is super nice and if you ask her a question after school, she solve it step by step for you. She's also very talktive if you go visit her after school :D

In her class: every day she gives another boring lesson and speaks in an uninteligible way. Not clear with explaining things, not good with making things interesting, and definitely not a good teacher

ms trans system with the folders is complicated and creates extra work with the students by her desk. in my case i have to receive each folder one by one interupting me while i do my work. what she can do is for each folder group is to trade with their trading partners creating little trouble for each group instead of all of it to one person.
