Mrs. Bell is overly strict and unwilling to help students. She believes that she is right NO MATTER WHAT, and has clear and obvious favorite students. Avoid if possible.

I like Mrs. Bell's class. I learn a lot; she teaches me a lot; she's strict and sometimes moody, but she knows what she's talking about. Sometimes she's scary.

Actually a very good teacher. Can be vague and grades strictly, but Precalc was fun for a math-liker. VERY challenging tests and projects, but afterwards you will be satisfied with your topic mastery.

Her way of drilling in the material is very militaristic. I'm sure there are better ways of learning without taking full pages of notes for motion's sake and have your heart pounding the whole time.

She's a good teacher. If you are prepared for class and pay attention, you'll learn the material. If you're a good student you won't have a problem. If not— act like a good student in her class.

She's a really good teacher. She's not going to hold your hand through the class, she expects you to learn the material.

She is very unclear and talks to you like you are the dumbest person on earth. She also picks favorites, and likes girls much better than guys.

Its hard, but she's a good teacher. She knows math (i disagree with those who say otherwise and i had her for two years and SAT Prep). She knows math history, which is also impressive. Yes, this class does take a lot of independant work, but you should be responsible enough to handle that. Take notes, study, and go in for help and you should be fine. She does occasionally snap unexpectedly, and i suppose that is a legitimate concern for some, but its nothing too intense.

I have Ms. Bell for Precal, and she is probably the worst teacher I have ever had. She barely knows what she is teaching us, and is extremely unhelpful if you go in for extra help. Any questions or criticisms, she avoids. Her review sets have incredibly stupid questions that have NOTHING to do with what we are learning/have ever learned. Her tests include stuff that is not in the chapter/chapters that we are doing. Despite all this, it's not too hard to get an A if you do well on review sets.

Though she races through the material she is usually there if you need help. Can be a bit mean sometimes but if you understand the material you should be fine.
