Nov 15, 2014 Very horrible teacher. She bullies some students and ignores the rest. You can't understand a thing she talks about and she doesn't care if you don't understand. She will move on and give you a test even if no one understands the materials. Cross your fingers that you don't have her. Flag Rating

Oct 16, 2014 Mrs. Cagney is a pretty good teacher. However, she isn't that helpful to students. Whenever someone has a question about a math problem, she totally ignores that person if not that many students have questions on those. Also, we don't have a textbook in class. This means that we don't have a reference to study off of besides our notes. Flag Rating

Oct 15, 2014 Mrs. Cagney is one of the worst teachers I've ever had and that's saying something. I have no idea what I'm doing and she just confuses me more when she "explains". No one else knows what she is talking about. Me and my friends WAIT for the days she is gone because other wise this class is honestly a living he11. GET OUT WHY YOU STILL CAN Flag Rating

Jan 19, 2014 People keep complaining about her Freshman accel. class being too hard. They don't realize she had to teach us Geo, Algebra 2 and trig all in one year, as well as extended materials. Its not that she's a bad teacher, she tries her best to teach you what she can. But if you take that class, be ready to have a lot of work at home. Its not at all impossible, I barely put in more effort than my previous classes and still got an A. You just have to learn quickly that you have to work in that class Flag Rating

Aug 01, 2013 Cagney did a wonderful job explaining in detail each concept and formula she used. She is very knowledgeable in her field. She was extremely helpful if you just asked for it, and she also lets you retake a majority of her tests. As for the tests, they were all very doable as long as you understood the material, although she liked to throw in a curve-ball question. To all the negative ratings- have you considered that you are the problem, and not her? Flag Rating

Aug 01, 2013 I really enjoyed having Mrs. Cagney as a teacher. She's very nice and always willing to help you out if you don't understand a concept. We had a ton of material to cover in freshman accelerated and it would have been impossible and impractical for her to go over everything we had to learn in class, so we did have to learn some concepts outside of school. She answered any and all questions presented to her in class, though, and I generally felt very prepared for tests. Flag Rating

May 12, 2013 She doesn't teach the material at all. If your in the freshman accel class you have to learn it by yourself. She's a really nice person but shouldn't be teaching that class. Test retakes are the best part about the class

May 30, 2012 Your teaching skills are simply atrocious, your attitude to your accelerated students is irritating, your only good ratings are from kids in Geometry B (a class so easy a caveman could teach it), you never ACTUALLY teach ANYTHING to the accelerated kids, only expecting them to recall EVERY SINGLE PIECE of knowledge shoved down their throats from previous years or figure something out by themselves. I hope you never teach another Freshman Accel class ever again. You call yourself a teacher... Flag Rating

May 05, 2012 Freshman Accelerated was by far the hardest class I've ever taken in my life. I can only maintain an A by putting in hours of extra practice every week, and even then sometimes it doesn't work. Much of the assignments you need to literally go into the book and teach to yourself because I guess she just thinks it fun to leave you on your own. Often getting algebra/trig answers wrong, Cagney is a good person but an abysmal teacher. I've been frustrated, angered, and very sad due to this class. Flag Rating
