This is the only teacher I ever googled in my life. I love this woman. Miss Garfield inspires me to be the best I can be. She is full of knowledge and shares it with such clarity. She is so real..so genuine. I wish she had a sleepover party or something Lol.. best teacher that walks on Cardozo's grounds.

You'll walk out of this class learning more about life than health. However, she knows her stuff. Absolutely recommend this psycho 1000%. She's nuts and you'll love it.

This lady is crazy. She comes into class yelling and screaming. She favors some students over others. She totally over reacts in the class and causes a scene most of the time and it is messed up. I thought forensics would be fun but she always doing crazy stuff and we never get through a lesson. That poor science teacher with her never gets a word in. She is always talking and most of the time it is about herself. they wouldn't transfer me. I liked it better when it was one teacher not two.NUT

She is a very good teacher. Your grade in her class is basically test, attendance, and PARTICIPATION. She cares about her students and many of them come to her to talk about problems going on in their lives. She is very open and opinionated. But she is very strict and crazy. When she yells she gets really loud and might even send you to the guidance counselor. You will have fun in her class. Her test are pretty easy, and the discussions are pretty interesting.

One thing is for sure-- I will NEVER forget Ms. Garfield. Although I absolutely hated her strict approach on the school's dress codes, she was BEYOND a wonderful teacher. She is genuine and truly cares for her students. Her class is easy to pass if you are completely honest with her and do what you have to do. Consider yourself INCREDIBLY lucky to have her as a teacher.

She is the best and crazyest teacher i've had in my entire high school years. She is a very nice teacher i like her teaching methods, even though some people i know dont like her i think once they get to know her like i did they will be just like me (can't wait to go to her class). Her class is a very easy class to pass and it is very fun. I wish a lot more teachers should teach like her.

Ms. Garfield is definitely the most memorable teacher i've ever encountered. It's very clear that her students feel safe in her presence. I have yet to open up to her much but given the choice and opportunity, she is the teacher I would go to for advice on almost anything. Every day, she never fails to reach out to her students and help them. I'm not even sure she's aware that she has such a powerful effect on us all. But I'm telling you, indeed she does. She's changed me in some ways that's for sure.

Ms garfield one teacher I will never forget. She truely lives her job and her students. I can honestly say that idk what'd I do without her. She's my role model on so many different levels. Althought ; I don't actually talk to her much about stuff her room is the only place I feel safe. She helps me alot more then she knows and I'm just so greatful. She's an amazing person. I can't thank her enought for everything she's done. (: Ty so much.!!

I like her class a lot, but I dont think she's a fair grader (even though she said that she is for 10,000 times), she gave me the same report card grade same as someone who had failed the tests and my test grades were 95 (AND I did all my hw)THAT was NOT fair!!! :(
