While she may know the material, she has NO IDEA how to teach it
While last year with mr. Wong, everyone in my class was engaged, this year, half the class doesn't even care. She turned math class from something OK to veritable tourture. As she teaches, she is extremely unclear, and at the end of a lesson, I am still wonderig what it was about. What's worse is that she doesn't really accept questions.
If you work hard, she is a great teacher and is extremely helpful.
Lisa Buitekant of Horace Greeley is the worst teacher, and human being for that matter, that I have ever come across. From picking favorites, bullying and contstantly embarassing students to reaching out to parents for any reason, Ms. Buirkant is out to get you. If there is any measure you can take to avoid this class in hell, I strongly advise that you do so. She is neither forgiving, nice, or an informative and helpful teacher, and will surely be the most stressful part of your life.
Worst experience with a teacher I had at Greeley, and definitely my least favorite math teacher I had in all 4 years. She is very rude, even one-on-one, or even if you ask a simple question. She taught "harder" math, like Trig and pre-calc, so the class was difficult in nature, but she made it even harder with her hard exams. She literally made me hate math and I dreaded class trying to learn from someone as condescending as her. I was a quiet, well-behaved girl, and she was still mean to me...
She was awesome!! I never understand math in my life until I met her. She helped me so much and we connected. I wish I could repeat senior year so I could have her again. If you are struggling, you have to come into class and attack with questions and it will show how dedicated you are to her. I love her!
She's alright, she doesn't check much hw and she is nice but she can also be a huge dick sometimes
This woman is literally a Buitekunt literally she will look out to make you fail and embarrass you in front of the whole class. If you miss a class for whatever reason, she will question you in front of the whole class and accuse you of skipping class. She will always bully students even if they sneeze the wrong way. Walking in late to this woman's class is asking to be ridiculed.
BEST math teacher at Greeley!!!!
Greatest teacher ever
The best teacher I've had in my whole schooling career. She is extremely helpful and kind and has a passion for math. I used to despise math, and now I look forward to her classes every day. An amazing and caring teacher as well.
She is a good teacher and the concepts arent too hard, but if you raise your hand to ask a question she is very mean. She almost cant understand why you have a question in the first place. She asks students to ask questions, but then when you do she bullies students. She makes fun of students who dont understand concepts or are late to class in front of everyone. It's mean and embarrassing. She doesnt seem like shes means to be this way, but she is. She is a bully.
She's a witch. She's mean to students and makes the class uncomfortable with participating in class and asking questions. When answering questions, she is very unclear and almost makes fun of you for not understanding. She belittles students and screams at students who break a small rule. Taking notes is almost impossible because of how poorly organized her questions are. She is only helpful if you meet with her after class
You either love her or hate her. If you're on time for class and participate, you should love her. If not, you will be miserable. She can be very mean to some students but nice to others.
She can be very mean to students in class, but one on one she is extremely helpful and nice. She explains things well and her tests are very fair; nothing unexpected. Overall, great teacher.
BEST math teacher at Greeley. some people dont connect with her, though. she is extremely helpful and always willing to explain thigns to students in a manner that they can udnerstand
hard teacher and really mean! is 'sarcastic' but not funny at all..i dont even think shes kidding, but its hard to tell with her. made me hate math
She's a good teacher and she's nice, but she gives a lot of homework and she's not too easy.
genuinely mean lady...belittles her students and makes them truly afraid to ask questions in class, so they end up not understanding the material and doing poorly on tests, which only makes her belittle them more... vicious cycle of a vicious woman...
Although she attempts to explain the mathwork in a structure manner, she doesnt seem to connect to the students. Also, if you didnt complete your homework, or came late to class, it seems that she likes to pinpoint you in front of the entire class
I just dont think she likes guys. Kind of mean. Not the greatest teacher. I can't really explain why- she just doesn't teach material well. She does weird examples without giving a solid idea of what to do (which kids who aren't math geniuses need
She is a mean woman. she is not fair. she should have her legs knawed off by tigers and be mamed.
okay I don't know what some of these people are talking baout. Ms. Buitekant is one of best math teachers ever, she is so dedicated and so commited to both math and her students. It is not hard if you try, and if you are having trouble go see her.
She was one of the best teachers I had at Greeley. She really did everything in her power to make sure her students did well on the AP exam.
Gotta say - Calculus was much easier on the AP test than in her class. I think she wasn't very clear in explaining it....or maybe it simply wasn't my style....
She is the best math teacher I have ever had... even though I was the most difficult in her class, she took the time to teach calculus, like in Stand and Delive
Explains things badly. Acts irritated when students ask difficult questions.
