A good, informative teacher. If you're in the front row, you'll find that she's shouting RIGHT IN YOUR EAR.

She's nice and kind but she is very very gullible. She tries to teach the class but can't seem to get a hold of the students. Needs to improve teaching skills big time!!!

once in class, a student was on his cell phone. When accused of talking on his phone, he told her that it was his wireless calculator and she believed him

althouh it is easy to get good grades from making up tests (which is nice of her), without hiring a tutor, i would never have learned the material

No joke, she is senile.If you want to learn math, I hope you like teaching yourself from a textbook. Other than the lack of coherence, she's a delightful woman.

She is really not as bad as she is made out to be! Mrs. Herring is a kind, god-fearing woman who really wants to see you do well. Go to JBlocks!

Mrs. Herring is one of the worst math teachers I have ever had, she tries hard, and if you are struggling she helps you learn, don't get on her bad side though

Although she trys to be helpful, her teaching style is very ineffective. She relay's too much on the book and should work on the problems step by step instead.

As long as you do work and try you have nothing to complain about, but sometimes she mixes up assignments so you don't know what to do for Homework.

Yes, we've taken advantage of her, but even if we didn't, her way of teaching just doesn't make sense. Goes by too traditional ways for this age...

Ok she is not the world's easiest and best teacher, but she is not so bad. I think if kids actually showed her respect, they would get more out of the class, like I did. She only hates you if you act like a rich snot-nosed Newton brat!

She's really nice and helpful as teachers go but a little confusing. She seems easy to take advantage at first, but I wouldn't start because it definitly doesn't last once she figures out who's not doing well in her class.

Not the best teacher, but she is nice to those willing to work. The only problem is that kids take advantage of her all the TIME.
