"Sergeant Sarah", as my friend likes to call her, is maybe a bit lacking in teaching style but is extremely helpful to students who don't understand the subject. Nevertheless, she's actually pretty funny and her class is legendary (Nothing to do with sharpie dueling going on in the back of the class). Her class is what you make of it.

I had her last year, and I don't remember a single thing about what she taught last year. There were more students in my class that moved down to level 2 than there were that moved up to honors

Very nice and cool person and very helpful outside of class, but as an in-class teacher she is not good. The way she teaches makes the subject confusing and difficult. We move on from subjects that no one understands, and no one is well prepared. Extra help is a necessity to even get a C in this class.

I am not prepared well for more challenging chemistry classes. She did not seem focused in class and taught things seemingly randomly, as if she thought of teaching it on a whim.

Good person, but will never give a straight answer, and all she does is make you copy notes and drones on while your trying to write them down

She's very nice and one of the best people around, but it helps if she actually TEACHES the information, instead of throwing the notes up and talking as we're writing

Attention science students: Do not go to your science teachers for after school help. She's the only one who can probably actually make sense. Tough but helpful teacher.

Can be summed up in one word--sadistic. Just wait until you 'review' for a test. You'll find yourself doing pushups per every wrong answer. >_>

Ms P is a cool teacher. She is hard but will always help anyone who needs it. Just study in her class and you'll do fine.
