I love this woman :-)
She is enthusiastic and cares about her students. If you don't like her, you probably aren't working. She makes math easy, and is always willing to answer questions. She rocks!!

I had Mrs. Whalen for both Algebra and FST(15 years ago). I disliked math itself, yet she approached her classes with patience, fairness and a great sense of humor. She never gave a grade that wasn't earned, and I respected her a great deal.

Poor teacher...did not help me even when i reached out to her and made it clear that i was struggling. Spends more time accusing me of being lazy than she did helping me...i finished every single homework assignment. Thanks for nothing.

Some kids don't like her but I think she's hilarious. Her Algebra I class is easy and I'm always quoting something that she says.

Fun person but not a good teacher. And she won't help, she'll only tell you to go to the ASC. If you ask her to go over something she'll explain it EXACTLY THE SAME WAY so you still don't get it.
