She is alright. She is very smart she just doesn't transfer her knowledge to students well. I understand that she teaches some hard courses however. She takes off so many points for so many little things and that's what always gets me because I tend to make a lot of careless mistakes. She is funny though.

she was nice. many people did badly on her tests because she made them worth so little points and took off points for not using a ruler even though you did. she was pregnant this year and that was always awkward.

Great teacher. Doesn't play favorites and is always available to help any student. She doesn't play god as some would like to believe and doesn't grade us unfairly.

math was my favorite subject. if you are a kiss-up you will do fine for the rest of us she doesn't care. on tests you will lose pts for every little mistake. if you write something like pts or another abbreviation you lose a pt for that which is so dumb. friends of mine have gotten tests back with no wrong answers and still have gotten B- or lower just based on things like that.

whoever doesnt think there is enough time on a test is probably an overachieving sophomore who wants to check their answer 30 times before handing it in.
