SHE HAS THE WORST ATTITUDE IN THE WORLD. Cannot teach to save her life, she's no negative. And when she teaches a lesson, she read from the book, and doesn't even make sure her students understand. And when you ask a question, she makes you feel dumb. She just says "What do you mean you don't understand, I just taught it." I know you just taught it but the way she explains it makes no sense. She tries to be funny, and said "Its like cancer it won't go away" I thought that was a little messed up.

Had this class during the 2015-2016 school year, and boy it was a tough ride. Her class is VERY dry and bitter, no class participation at all, but more of a boring lecture that nobody understand. She goes over the textbook problems without even clearly explaining a new method/approach and calls that a "lesson". Be prepared to do a ton of practice packets before AP exam, studying two months ahead for finals, and the class in general.

Ms. Nava is one of my favorite teachers! I recently had her for AP Calculus AB, and her notes are very clear and to the point. She made Calculus a fairly easy subject. I have to admit that she may not be as "fun" of a teacher as the other teachers, but if you pay attention in her class, then you will learn everything you need to learn and more. Not only that, but she's incredibly nice and lenient. She will give you makeup tests and curve any test many people did badly on!

I love Mrs. Nava! Even though I failed her class, it was because I didn't pay attention. Other than that shes really good at teaching and breaking it down.

Her teaching methods aren't exactly stellar, and she often seems standoffish. But she's very understanding and she'll take a liking towards you if you do well. She's also very organized.

She's a fairly good teacher, however you can easily get on her nerves. Just be sure to do your work and stay focused, and you're fine.

Nava is nice and easy for Calculus. She gives easy extra credit and curves tests if the whole class does poorly. She's okay at teaching. Students need to study hard themselves, but ask questions.
