Mrs. Patton is more like a classroom advisor than a teacher. Her teaching is confusing, she barely even knows what she says talking about, she makes mistakes with her math, and she never explains anything clearly. I'd recommend switching if you have her to save yourself the pains of dealing with her class.

She doesn't explain the material, so you basically have to teach yourself. Her tests and quizzes aren't incredibly difficult, but you need to practice the problems to do well. However, she does stay after quite a lot, and is very open to questions. But there have been days where she just puts the answer key to the HW on the projector,she spends the entire period doing nothing. She also frequently leaves the classroom randomly, with no explanation, and can be gone for up to 10 min. rate 3/10

If you are capable of teaching yourself/figuring out most of the math yourself, then you won't have a problem, and she typically makes herself available so that you can ask questions when you get stuck. Otherwise, I recommend switching. Her lessons are never clear, she'll do problems wrong, tests are harder and longer than she prepares you for, and she'll admit to taking needless points off of assignments but refuse to give them back because "It's not that big a deal."

If you have her for Algebra 2A, I apologize. Unless you're mentally prepared to teach yourself every lesson. Switch. Now. If you enjoy not being able to finish your tests and taking 4 page quizzes go right ahead and request her as a teacher. Nice lady, but be prepared to correct her on positive and negatives, Yes I'm serious.

She tries. But, truthfully, she is poor at teaching. Sometimes it felt like she scrambled to learn a lesson quickly before class because her knowledge on a topic was so devastating. Prepare to be ready to teach yourself everything. I got an A though.

Can be unclear but Mrs. patton honestly attempts to explain herself. She gives hw every night and we often end five minutes before the bell. Her tests are very hard and often a q will be on it that we did not go over in class, which is very frustrating. She is understanding though and willing to stay after for help. Her notes are unorganized and I would recommend taking your own out of the text b. She is a very nice person however and always asks how we're doing.

Makes algebra easy. You learn a ton in her class. Although it can get a little on the dull side.

A little new at teaching, but I give her credit. Good with her math. Sometimes unorganized, but a good person at heart. Always in a good mood.
