Mrs. Carlson...she didn't teach me anything. My parents had to teach me algebra. Everyone I know that had her class says that she was the worst thing in middle school. She told me that I would get a job on a street corner flipping signs because I was so stupid, and the reason she said this was because I raised my hand in class to give an answer to a question. She berated the whole class and would ridicule us individually in front of the whole class. She was the worst teacher I ever had.

Mrs. Carlson is such an amazing teacher! I had her for both AVID and Math. She may be strict but its her way of teaching so we can pay attention. Mrs. Carlson, tries to make math as fun as possible. For AVID she helped me become a better student than I was before. She may be difficult at times but always try you're best!

Even though she is tough, she is a really great math teacher. She helps you before and after school, and finds ways to make math fun. I never regret having her. Best math teacher ever.

VERY hard teacher. But I think geometry will be easy. Maybe.... I am still in her class and do not know what to expect. I hope she is easier this year.

like everybody else, she is the hardest and unfair math teacher in the school and makes atleast 1 person cry a ear, but besides that being in her algebra class made geometry hella easy in high school?

She is NOT an easy teacher but she is probably the most inspiring and most important teacher I've ever had. She grades extremely hard, but in a way that makes you realize what you're doing.

She Is an Excellent Overall Math And AVID Teacher. Even though she may seem mean, or unfair, is because she cares. Something ms.chi wouldnt do. So far Mrs.Carlson is one of my Favorite teachers.
