I love Mrs G, when I went to 6th grade she gave us jolly ranchers and she helps us get use to taking quizzes/test. First I thought it was very stressful, but I got the hang of it, and right now I'm not as stressed out.
Even though Mrs Giffert- Matthews' teaching style is different than other teachers', she makes sure you do your work the right way and that you understand what she is saying. She has high standards and expects that you meet them, which makes you stronger and you will be able to set higher goals for yourself.
In 6th grade she was everyones enemy. but now I realize her teaching style was logical and effective, however not so effective to 6th graders, move up a grade or 2 and you'll love it.
Best teacher I've ever had! Sure there's a lot of work because she wants to make sure you know the material. Loved having her as a teacher.
