By the end of last year, she just gave you a look and told you to ask someone else if you wanted help.

She expects a lot from her students, and explanations are minimal. But if/when you get confused speak up, she will be more than willing to help. She was very entertaining!

Ugh Ms. Bethea hardly ever teaches and gives extremely hard tests that Ms. Rad writes so she does zero work. I hear she is a good student council leader but that doesn't help her students at all!

Ms. B was one of the best teachers i have ever had. She deffinately makes you work for your grade and you learn a lot in her class but she teaches in a nice fun way that makes you really learn it.

She seems to hate her honors kids. She never really teaches us, she just sits and acts lazy. Her lectures are basically Bill Nye videos (I've watched more TV in her class then at home this year).

She is not a good teacher. She is very lazy and just gives you the worksheets and tells you to do them. When you don't understand something she looks at you like your stupid and doesnt help you.

Yes, she is cool, but she doesn't really do alot for the "unpopular kids." She should stop focusing on being cool and focus on the kids who are never focused on

i'd think that if you have a problem with ms. b, you should tell her instead of whining here. yea, she teaches in a unique way, but she gets the job done.

Wow, try focusing less on being "cool" cause you're not, and try learning your subject. Stop obsessing on student council and TEACH! I learned all this in grade
