I have her this year and it's very frustrating to be in her class - she is loud and makes people uncomfortable. It's very difficult to concentrate because of her attitude. Overall, she's competent at teaching math and the class is easy enough, just do your homework and you'll be set - but be prepared to struggle through the 45 minutes per day that you have her.
Fenster wasn't my favorite. Do your homework and pay attention and you'll be fine, she cold calls and it's annoying especially when she makes us go around and " share answers" oh and study vocabulary for math, she's big on that.
Just do your homework and make an effort
Fenster won't be your friend, but if you do your homework then the tests are super easy. She does call on people during class, so make sure you're paying attention.
Basically, she knows what she's doing.
Had her for AE precalc. Lots of people do not like her method/attitude, but it is not that bad. It is true that her class is somewhat boring, but she is a very nice person and gives the easiest tests of all the AE precalc teachers.
she really didn't know how to talk to kids and make the class entertaining at all.
I think mrs fenster was a good teacher in terms of learning the material and doing well on tests. I honestly thought the year was so easy in her class. But I didn't enjoy the actual class at all because she's very boring and goes way too slow on problems.. That might be just because I understand concepts pretty quickly, but I thought it was unbearable at times to have to sit in her class. Not fun. But you'll do well! She goes through things a million times.. Trust me....
She's a pretty good teacher but when you have to talk to her..... you better watch out. DO YOUR HOMEWORK or she gives you a very disappointed look and calls you out in front of the whole class.... not fun. the good side is, she can joke around when she wants to. she's very organized and never really gets side tracked with is good for you because she doesn't go back and reteach things.
I love JFence! She's a good teacher and it's easy to do well in her class if you just do your homework and study. Even though you're learning math all the time she still makes it fun
I never enjoyed talking to her. She's a fine teacher, just do the work, study and you'll do well. She's so annoying though and not fun. I was constantly watching the clock in her class.
i know she may seem mean, but she's really good at extra help and she wants you to understand the material. if you get on her good side she is really nice and helpful. best math teacher i've ever had.
she is awful with high schoolers, and treats us like five year olds, while teaching us information that we've learned already, saying she's sure we've never heard of it. The more I listen to her, the less I understand.
being in her class made me hate math even more than i already did to begin with.
Not most enthusiastic person in the world. I found myself forgetting a lot because there's a lot more emphisis on memorizing and copying "her way" than understanding concepts
She is helpful and is willing to get people to understand concepts. However, she sometimes does the exact opposite, rushing through unanswered homework problems. She taps her feet a lot, too. She is overall good.
What people dont seem to realisze is that she is an incredibly gifted teacher and can always find a way for someone to understand the concepts. My only advice would be to pre-type the notes more often.
she always says were gunna learn something new but its always something ive learned b4!
Boring class, spend most of my time looking at the clock. I find her kind of odd, but that's just me.
whats with all these "boring"s?? She's a total nutcase, but far from boring.
she is a very good teacher. tests are easy, and even though she makes some mistakes, u will still learn lots.
Has a good attitude but can be confusing when she teaches new material, her tests are long and doesn't go the extra step with help that seperates out other teachers.
shes a nice lady- helpful, tests are good, really pays attention to your hw which is gd...all good!
good teacher. if you try, she'll make it so you do well. if you slack off, thats ur fault buddy
a nice person, and she does teach well, even if she makes mistakes
Dumbest teach i've ever had. Made mistakes all the time!!!
she doesnt give me partial credit on tests because i correct her sometimes in class when she does stuff totally wrong on the board
went from getting d's in ae to A's in her class. thats ok for me....
forces us to be awake 1 per. and go put up hw probs on the board even when we all refuse. take a hint woman. no one wants to be in your class. you're annoying
easy class, sometimes a little boring, but she's nice and you do learn stuff
Mrs. Fenster was a really good math teacher. I as able to understand all of the units. The class was a bit boring though.
This is possibly the worst teacher ever. She's not smart enough to teach High School Algebra.
EASY CLASS BUT IT MITE B THE MOST BORING THING EVER.........AND SHE IS SOOOOO DUMB 2 TEACH MATH
The best teacher I ever had! Made me finally understand math! Really cares about her students!
Wow. i never thought i'd have a teacher with this bad of a personality. She does not teach, she simply shows the students that she can do it herself.
had her last year, mean teacher, no compassion, EVIL!!! be wrned frosh she hates ppl who want to succeed, made me miserable!
oh looord......worst teacher i've ever had in my life. cranky, favoritism, got angry at the prospect of actually having to explain stuff.
