Mrs.Risdon was a great teacher in my opinion. I like the fact that she actually teaches and answers any questions you have. I learned a ton from her.

Isn't a teacher supposed to help students to succeed? But she is peeling student's confidence and self esteem.

She's a good teacher. However, she is hard to listen to with her constant mmkays and talking to herself. Her long, multi-colored nails are distracting as well. Just pay attention and do well on tests.

She's not someone you'd want to hangout with, but she's a great teacher. She covers everything in class, pay attention and you won't need to study. I wish I still had her.

Best math teacher I ever had. Volume can be a bit loud at times but understandable since that way, the back can hear. Easy to understand the material after she teaches it. Tests are completely fair
