I'm a student at foothill middle and I have ms Elliott. She's knowledgeable about computers but she doesn't teach. Her class consists of constantly watching YouTube videos and teaching ourselves how to do our assignments. We also do random research papers that don't even help us. Overall, I don't reccomend taking this teacher or her class.

It's not exactly her teaching that's the issue. She jokes around, but she doesn't know who can and who can't take the jokes. It can seriously upset people- she's made students cry.

What can I say, she can sometimes be a good teacher but sometimes she could get very mean and cranky. She can be funny and nice sometimes but you have to listen in her class if you want a good grade.

Tried to be funny and attempted to be a good teacher, but in the end she didn't know the material she was teaching and was sometimes unfair on what she tested. You might have a good time in her class

She's way too sarcastic and she doesn't necessarily have favorites, but she does have favorites to pick on lol. She seems a little bitter. Most of her jokes are not funny. But she made class fun.

I don't have her as a teacher but I really with I did. She seems like she knows the subject better than the other teacher and prepares her students for high school better.

She is an ok teacher, but doesn't seem to know where the line of appropriatness is. many jokes are offensive and inconsiderate. that said, she is a very competent science teacher.

She is funny, though it can be harsh at times. The class can be difficult if you don't put forth effort, but whose fault would that be?

She is very nice and helpful, considering you do all your homework. As long as you try, she will give you good grades. She makes fun of people, so be prepared and act cool.
