Ms. Pascale is definitely an amazing math teacher. This year she is my Hon Precalculis teacher. Next year she will be my BC Calculus teacher. She is extremely helpful. And yes the class is hard, but she know s that you know that. She can help you but only if you pay attention and ask for it.

Mrs. Pascale is probably the best teacher I have ever had in any subject. Her class is very hard, and that is an understatement. I have never worked harder in a class, but she makes it easy to be motivated to learn with her obvious extreme knowledge of the subject and the way in which she carefully explains things. I was nervous about taking BC Calculus, but now that I have met her and had her for a semester I can say it was a great decision. Do not be afraid to take her class!

She's great. Math can be mundane but she makes it engaging just by being funny. People complain about it but they're just salty that they suck at math. Some may not find it that funny but better than an emotionless plank of wood who hates their job. Very good at explaining things. While she is not available at lunch or after school, Ms. D is available and she is great too.
BC Calc is hard. People should not blame her for it.

I'm a math and science person. This is easily the worst math class I've taken. When she's explaining concepts, she tries to use analogies, but they never make sense. She tries too hard to relate to her students and makes way too many jokes - none of which are funny. I found her extremely annoying. She talks a lot about her kids. This would be fine, but it often takes away from the class. Worst class of my day. I try so hard to focus on learning the math, but she makes it hard. BC Calc

Yeah absolutely unhelpful and condescending. You can't ask her for help and she's too arrogant to function, it's insane. Only a good teacher if you like already took the class and have a PHD in physics and calc. Oh, this was Precalc btw

Ms. Pascale is interesting. She goes really fast in class and makes the people who are a little confused or behind feel stupid :( She doesn't answer questions directly and goes over homework SO FAST without any time to ask questions. She is really funny but I wish she would wait for many of us to catch up.

Ms Pascale is wonderful! If you actually try in her class, she'll love you! And if you think it's too easy, then take the BLUE test. It's a special hard test made just for the people who think the regular ones are too easy. She's such a good teacher!

Worst math teacher I've ever had. Teaches only to the kids who should be in higher level math and disregards the rest. Impossible to get extra help from her since "she leaves at lunch" which is incorrect and she just wants to use lunch time to grade papers. She is not engaged and not interested in anything other than calc which she told our pre-calc class that is the only thing she wants to teach. If you don't have her for calc. switch out. Worst experience ever.

She's very smart, but doesn't make time for students who need help, is kind of judgemental, and gets off topic easily. Her classes move at too fast of a pace.

If you are interested in math, you will learn. If not, Ms.Pascale will try her hardest for you to enjoy the subject. I think she is a great teacher; Tough, but knowledgable and fun.

Plays favorites like crazy. Actually, she doesn't really have "favorites", just doesn't like certain people. Don't know why. Not clear when explaining concepts, try to switch out.
