I had Mrs. King as a junior. Although there are a ton of negative reviews on here, she is truly an amazing teacher. You cannot expect a good grade without doing your homework or not being a good student in class; hence, if you are disrespectful, she will be too. She will give you respect if you do, and treat you the way you treat the class and her. I still come to her, to talk and will continue too. Forsure the best teacher I have and will have.
Ms. King is someone I respect solely as a teacher, not really as a person however. She is quite moody and condescending, but her job is not to be nice to you; her job is to teach you math. In that respect, I think she should be commended. She teaches the material very well, and her tests/quizzes aren't hard. She is much nicer when she is not teaching to be honest. All in all, If you pay attention in class, you will do well.
Mrs. King is an amazing teacher and person. Though she sometimes is in a very bad mood, she is still great. I can not STRESS ENOUGH how good of a first impression you need to make on her to do well and for her to like you.
When I first came into the class I thought that Mrs. King was very cold and unwelcoming, but I was proven wrong throughout the course. She is very compassionate and funny, she teaches the class well, and her tests are based on everything she says in class. All you have to do to ace her class is to listen carefully, be nice, and get help if you're unsure. Best math teacher I've had in my life.
Mrs. King is a fabulous teacher and she really knows how to explain stuff well. If you come after school for extra help she is particularly nice and helpful.
I honestly am kind of conflicted with this rating bc she can be very rude towards her students, but means well. She is actually a rlly good teacher and is willing to help although can be very blunt and that makes her sound rude. Honestly ppl need to suck it up bc she tells the truth. Very good teacher actually, just cranky sometimes. Clear and can be nice at times, though she obviously has favorites. Good teacher overall just needs to be a little more friendly sometimes.
My son had her few years ago. Thought about her today and decided to talk. He had many outside activities that required him to travel/participate many hours in Boston. She is unwilling to understand each students' needs, not to mention how disrespectful she can be sometimes. Very disappointed to see that she is still teaching at LHS
At first I didn't like Ms. King because she was very moody at some times, but she actually is a good math teacher. As long as you understand the material, you will ace her tests. If you try hard, it will be easy to get straight A's. If you need help she is always willing to clarify any confusion. My only regret is that if I should have not slacked off towards the end of the year. Besides that, her class was a 4 out of 5.
HA. She is just so mean. MOODY! She favors students. Can't believe shes at LHS for so long.
She is terrible, I doubt she is even human. She is incredibly moody! She also will end you if you dont do the hw. I didnt do it and for correct answers on test, she would give me 2's. Absolutely crazy, satan-spawn
Too much textbook use, she refuses to let kids think "outside the box" or find creative solutions to the problems. Has a "my way or the highway" approach to teaching and doesn't seem to like dealing with kids.
Relies way too much on the textbook, incredibly moody. Nice one day, death for the next few weeks. Overall terrible person. Doesn't deserve to be a teacher at Lexington High, let alone for 20 something years.
Couldn't do my homework for a legitimate reason, but she gave me a zero because it was my choice to perform in the concert. In reality, my music teacher told everyone it is required for everyone to perform and stay for the entire concert. This teacher is very rude and doesn't understand her students' pressure in school and is quick to make conclusions. Thanks for giving me the zero.
she's a very good teacher--she explains the concepts clearly, she's a little strict in grading proofs, i didn't think she was any more moody than the average human being. she's a great teacher
I HATE HER. SHE IS REALLY MOODY, FAVORS STUDENTS, AND DOESNT LIKE TEACHING. LEAVE PLEASE OR AT LEAST TRY SOMETHING ELSE WITH UR TEACHING.
I honestly don't understand why she is a teacher.... she seems to hate teaching.... she probably needs the money
The only reason she liked me was bc I brought her baked goods in my Senior year. I was out for a week (Chillin) and she was really nice about it but yelled at other student who was out for 3 days bc he was sick. WIN. She really liked me but I secretly hated her =P She is just a really mean person I think.
I love Mrs. King! She is tough, yes, but if you are willing to put the work in she is willing to help you...she has your best interest at heart, offers retakes, always offers extra help and is an excellent teacher.
She expects alot and is very harsh if you don't do the work, but you will learn alot from her if you do. As long as you don't give up math your senior year, what you learned from her is worth it
very good teacher but don't ask her questions in class. always defer to her authority on everything and she will love you.
Mrs. King is the worst teacher I have ever had!! Granted, I am not the best math student, she was extremely reluctant to provide me with any assistance and extra help when I needed it.
She is a good teacher but has the ability to make boys cry. Don't ever challenge her authority or you will lose. Overall I had a good experience, but I don't like math and her class got boring.
hey shes alright for a person who isnt fascinated with numbers. She knows I hate math but tries to help me get a good grade. Not a bad teacher, id have her again
If you're into drama, SWITCH OUT before it is too late. She will not accomodate someone who is passionate about something other than her class. Attitude!
although she maybe a hard teacher and that i realli hate her, she made me push myself to prove to her that im better than wat she thinks
some kids don't like her but i think she works hard to help us. nice once you get to know her.
mrs king is sometimes very nice, but sometimes not nice at all. She is always here for extra help, and loves talking about her kids,
she always had a few bitter words of discouragement for me. Such as telling my group member that it was her own fault for picking me as a group member! Lithium
way to fast, need better explanations, need to have more patience
A nice person underneathe it all. you just have to dig through the layers of insanity and constant mood swings. it's a hard class, but she does help, and she is nice. just out there.
Mrs.King is a great teacher. She cares a lot about us. She always is giving us extra help and trying to help us do well.
A good teacher, she gets the point across and is always suggesting extra help. Problem though, very very moody. Not usually in a good mood. Doesn't make you feel good about yourself. You should be able to do this by now.
