Ryder is my favorite teacher!! She's hilarious and cares for everyone. she will act annoyed and send you outside if someone is actually being annoying, which is pretty funny. She might seem shy at first but she has a great sense of humor. 10/10 reccomend

Programming is my favorite. I usually end up researching the language myself and using that instead of listening at all to her lectures, which are pretty confusing. Everything else is exceptional.

Ms. Ryder and I are true homies. She's the best and I resonate with her and her love for cats. Her teaching is superb-- very clear and will make sure you understand the material. I one day wish to meet her cat, Momo. <33

The best teacher at the school by far. If you ever need any help regardless of what is it she can assist you. She teaches what is on the exam and will help you during the down time in the class.

Had her for AP Computer Science. Without a doubt she has opened my eyes to a whole new world of computers that I never knew I would have gotten into. Now I am seriously considering a computer science major for college.

Ryder is an interesting teacher. At first, she may not seem noticeably funny, but it's her wit and her very indifferent-sounding sarcasm that makes her incredibly enjoyable and affable. She knows her math really well and teaches the material in a straightforward fashhion. She's also super approachable and cares a lot for her students. Never gets angry and doesn't play favorites. Her class is hard but not overwhelming. Overall a wonderful teacher.

Ms. Ryder is one of the greatest teachers I have ever had. On top of being a truly gifted educator, she can also be very funny. She is one of the easiest people in the world to approach. There is a reason that anytime Ms. Ryder walks past a group of people at school, she is greeted with a roar people waving and screaming at the top of their lungs, "HI MS. RYDER!!!!!" She is a celebrity at WHS.

I've been in a total of 8 semesters worth of classes with her. She is really passionate about what she does and extremely nice and easy going. It has been great to work with her and she is honest when she does not understand how something works which is a very admirable thing to see in a teacher. Show her that you genuinely care about her class and she will give you a very rewarding educational experience.

I LOVE Ms. Ryder; had her for Geometry H two years ago and now I've had her again for Analysis H. Most coherent math teacher I've ever had; she's super helpful and hilarious. Once I was texting in class; she grabbed my phone and took a selfie!

Ryder has favorites, and she has a tough time not letting them distract the class. She likes the outgoing kids who are friendly to her, especially kiss-up honors girls. She runs a really odd classroom but is very, very nice. Watch out for sarcasm.

I think this was Ms. Ryder's first year teaching AP Math Analysis. She is a nice person and means well. I believe she will be a better teacher for AP Math Analysis as time progresses. She was just OK for AP Math Analysis this year.
