Nov 04, 2014 Mrs Mahoney is a nice lady but not a good teacher. She writes notes on the board and then gives us practice problems but doesn't do a great job of explaining. She also makes you feel dumb for not understanding something on the homework or asking questions. One thing I like is that she doesn't count your first zero for homework each marking period.

Aug 29, 2014 Personally I liked Mrs. Mahoney. She was very friendly and nice to me and I always felt bad for her when some students disrespected her. If she was sarcastic or mean it was bc of the student's behavior. Not the best teacher, but nearly not the worst. Flag Rating

Jul 02, 2014 Not a great teacher by any means but a sweet lady outside of class and I just felt that needed to be said. She's not a good teacher but she's a good person. Flag Rating

May 10, 2014 Okay let's just say Ms. Mahoney needs to be done teaching. At this point she is just cranky and overworked. Whenever someone asks a question she responds with great attitude and makes you feel like you are an idiot. She Doesn't care. Flag Rating

Mar 20, 2014 Mrs mahoney ruined my freshman year . She is not a good teacher she doesn't teach. She often makes jokes and expects people to laugh but no one does. I have been a good student in math until she came into my life. If you get her switch out . Flag Rating

Dec 17, 2013 A few words to describe the worst math teacher that I've ever had: sarcastic, snarky, mean, arrogant. She often makes ridiculous jokes then expects us to laugh, commonly gets example problems wrong, and is just plain mean at times. Flag Rating

Jul 16, 2013 Ms. Mahoney...

She can possibly be one of THE worst teachers i have ever had. She takes too long on easy sections, but speeds up on hard sections. i passed with an A average, but my fellow peers, not so much. She barely teaches, and when you ask for extra help for homework she kinda gives you attitude and tells you fine. one time, my friend wanted extra help for the final and she said no. Don't get me started about her yelling. if you are good at math and dont study, like me, expect 70-87%

Jun 26, 2012 tests are mostly trick questions, some questions do not even relate to the notes. she just makes you copy notes from the white board. she says jokes that no one besides her thinks is funny. she counts down the days of school until summer. try to get another teacher. Flag Rating

Jun 22, 2012 She was so bad, I requested not to have her next year.If I get a 'B' in her class, Ms. Mahoney will have officially ruined my future. She was my least favorite teacher of my entire life. She's sarcastic and mean, finding herself SO funny when no one else is laughing. Telling jokes instead of teaching.She GOT MAD when someone asked her question and she just puts notes on the board; guess she doesn't believe in actually TEACHING the material(taught myself everything). She is the worst teacher EVER Flag Rating

May 19, 2012 I don't know how her ratings are so high. She is unhelpful. Her way of explaining is to repeat herself. If it wasn't so late in the year, I'd switch out of her class. She teaches nearly every possible math class, so she's hard to escape, but my advice is to try your best. She is incredibly boring and I'd rather learn from the book. Useless. Flag Rating

Jan 08, 2012 her classes tend to be boring, but she's nice, will answer your questions, and doesn't give too much homework. she usually has us take notes and then we do worksheets so i usually have to teach myself the material on my own. Flag Rating
