I had Mrs. Horsey for precalc H. She may not be the clearest math teacher or have the easiest tests, but she is a pretty cool person outside of class.

Ms. Horsey is extremely smart, and she is a very caring person. However, she is disorganized and frequently digresses. Yet she explains all the concepts in several different ways and if you seek her help outside of class, she is more than willing to help and very knowledgeable. She makes her tests and quizzes hard, but if you pay attention in class and do you homework, you should have no problem getting an A. She truly cares about your success in life and about you as a person.

HOMEWORK, HOMEWORK, AND MORE HOMEWORK. Even on the block schedule days you don't have her. Always a chance to bring up your test grade after. Sometimes it seems like she doesn't care about her students but she means to best.18357

Ms Horsey is a warm and caring person. She is highly intelligent, teaching one of the most difficult classes offered in high school. She is an excellent role model especially for her female students. She has a crazy sense of humor and possesses hidden talents like leading music. She rates 6 stars out of 5.

Ms. Horsey cares a lot about her students. She is definitely a good person, if you talk to her a lot about grades or other things she actually gets invested in it. However she's not the best at teaching and grading things on time. Because of this she gets super stressed. Tests and quizzes are definitely challenging, you have to put in a lot of effort to get an A.

Very hard to focus in her class because she always seems so distraught. Sometimes she uses that to her advantage by excusing her behavior for being in a stressful situation. However, she's most of the time more than willing to help during lunch. Very caring and cautious person outside of teaching

She doesn't really have much teaching ability. When it comes to something she can't teach she depends on the students to teach themselves. She claims to be extremely smart and boasts about her son and her successful student career.

Never answers questions clearly and is VERY easily distracted. Does not come to class on time majority of the time and is constantly overcomplicating the simplest of lessons. Takes a good 3 or 4 weeks to finish ONE chapter.

Talks about her son everyday. Assigns random, lengthy homework on the spot. Comes late to class. Doesn't know lesson plans. Doesn't attempt to teach. Cannot answer questions clearly. Grades tests extremely harshly to an extent where success is rare. Takes too long to grade tests. Harasses students and kicks them out of class for no good reason. Favors certain students. Does not know math. Has no ability to teach whatsoever. I considered taking my own life almost everyday in that class.

People like to hate on horsey because she's a hard teacher. HARD. She's pretty bad at grading stuff...I think I took my chapter 4 test and the day before, she graded our chapter 1 test and handed it to us...sometimes she likes to give a couple life lessons, and with a talkative class and a couple of outgoing individuals, she'll love your class, and she gets easily distracted. Horsey definitely wants to help every student in her class and I really learned a lot about math. 780 on MATH II. WOOT.

She takes a very long time to post grades. She does not show much flexibility of how to teach or run her class. She also spends a lot of time in class talking about irrelevant subjects, like her son.

Skips chapters yet tests on them. Test grades take weeks to complete and don't match homework or quizzes. Discourages kids from coming in for help. Complains about workload.

The most important thing is that she does a very good job of preparing you for calculus. She's always very clear and makes sure you know how to do everything. Excellent teacher!
