Ms Piper has an extremely unfair bias against people fron Takoma, especially boys. She also has a huge ego. Like cmon, we're in the magnet. Do you really need to say you used algebraic simplification to get a quiz from 20 to 15 points? Just multiply by 3/4!!! Maybe if she lost the ego and the bias she'd be ok…

Many people think that Ms. Piper has bias against or unfair toward them. However, I see that she is fair at grading and helping everyone. There is a reason why people think this, and it is because she is tougher than most teachers on people who are insubordinate, churlish, and arrogant. Being in the magnet, we have more than a fair share of those who possesses said attitudes especially the latter. Lastly, she explains very abstract and complex concepts very well.

She was a pretty good teacher. She really explains the topics well. She is kind of annoying though.

She always says bad jokes, and she absolutely despises people from Takoma Park. Also, the topics covered in her class are boring, TI, Excel, Stella, but that's not her fault.

Despises Takoma Magnets and doesn't explain anything. She assigned a project and never discussed the due date, then expected it the next class. Overall terribly biased, but still nice.

Average overall. Only a few issues with her (like when everyone loses points on things we never knew we had to do on an assignment) but things could be so much worse.
