She is so nice. Honestly, she is the first math teacher I've ever had who actually helped me instead of giving me practice problems and then moving ahead at breakneck pace. Very funny too

She never clarifies anything during tests because she thinks you're asking for a hint, even if something with the format of the test is confusing. She also over exaggerates things. For example, at the end of class, I had my playing cards out, and she told me this story, which I believe is false, and I would never do, on how these kids were gambling, which I don't do at school, and how the guy who won didn't get his money, so he brought weapons and tried to stab the loser.

One of the many teachers that are nice but bad at teaching.She clearly loves her students, no doubt about it. But her teachings are really bad. Whenever you ask a a question she would ignore it and say " talk to your partner" even though we both don't understand it. We don't have a textbook to bring home so it makes it harder to learn it after doing absolutely nothing in class. I recommend skipping Geometry 1st year, just to avoid getting this teacher. I have no reason to lie so just believe me.

She's a great person and is incredibly funny, but she's a bit lacking when it comes to teaching. I didn't learn much, and I had her for two years in a row. I'm considering retaking all the classes I had with her in college.
