She is a great person but a horrible teacher. its not our fault if the entire class fails on a subject you didnt bother to teach so u could finish grading. no matter how hard i study i can get higher than a b on her tests. well at least she is retired

She teaches the material and is a good teacher but... prepare for boring notes. (Don't be surprised if you find yourself falling asleep!)

Ms. Sams is pretty chill but the thing is that she loves to give powerpoints on top of powerpoints, teeming with notes. You have to know what she writes on the board and what's in the book. But either

Teaches alot of stuff, covers everything but tests are a bit too hard. Nice enough and also a pretty cool study hall teacher :)

she's not the best teacher, but she's so chill and lets you get away with anything :) just don't be overtly disrespectful and you'll be fine.

she's definitely a great person but as a teacher she's NOT. b/c of previous years' misbehavior, she's become super strict & harder upon her new years. when i say this, i mean it..NO ONE likes her...
