really bad teacher. Could not connect with the class and very rarely provided a good answer for a question. Unable to understand simple questions that a toddler could understand. If you are not naturally good at the subject, you will not improve, as little to no help is provided from confusing ramblings and anecdotes

Not that great of a teacher, but really cares about her students. Her tests are based off of the review packets and are extremely easy. She always comes up with bizarre analogies. Ladies and Gentlemen. Homework, homework, homework...

This woman is just so difficult to listen to. She picks on certain students who have a harder time with the material. She doesn't even pretend to be nice to those ones. Also, she is a penguin.
