People say she isnt the best but once you get to know she is a really good teacher, she makes jokes once in a while, and really makes sure that you know what you are doing. You go super umali <3

Plays favorites, never really tachers you much. More of independent teaching. She yells at you for the littlest things and has high expectations for your grades although she never really taches well.

She's a pretty nice teacher and she assigns easy work but she doesn't explain some things and her tests/quizzes are kind of impossible but overall she's a good teacher and it should be easy to pass her class if you can self-teach.

She is the worst teacher I ever had. She doesn't help you with anything and If you ask for help she will yell at you. She also THREATENS you with referrals for no reason and even sends you to the office if you so much as let your own table mate barrow your tape, pencils, pens, erasers,etc. She also gives irrelivent projects on math.If you ask her to have a parent teacher confrence she will just ignor it and try to change the subject. Im glad that Im not going to be in her class next year.

Ms.Umali is by far one of the worst teachers I have met. She gives no time to help you, is never clear on what to do and when you are aloud to work in groups and she says you can talk she still freaks out on you and gives extra work even though we are quiet. She is constantly threatening us with extra work and doesn't even give it out. Multiple kids I know have literally just stood up and walked out of her class because of how immature and criticizing this teacher is. I hope soon she gets fired.

I was her aid, and student . She does play favorites, but if you catch her in a good mood, then it's alright. Just study for tests and such. Everything goes to your grade. Tickets doesn't do anything, nor does extra credit, because I never entered them.

She's an excellent teacher. It's not true that she plays favorite. Some students are just too lazy and she doesn't tolerate lazy students. I like her system of teaching. Very Organized .

She is a teacher, with high expectations and doesnt cut anyone slack. So just toughen up and get through it. Pay attention and you'll do okay. In this class you can easily get your grade up if you TRY

She can be mean to her really bad students, and nice with her really good students. Can be hard to understand sometimes and pushes students. Overall an o.k teacher who has high standards.

She's rather ok. But she pushes the geometry students too much with her expectations. We're the geometry students who have skipped the average and so we must be very smart. It is very tiring.

Not one of my favorite teachers, but definently deserves some credit. Although I did not learn anything in her class because of all the homework she gave us, we definently felt that we were in a math atmosphere.

She gives out okay work, but understanding her is whole different story. She looks at the ceiling when she talks. She gives out the same lectures almost everyday. By the end of the first trimester, she had five different catchphrases.
