I disagree with most of the comments here. If you truly focus and try in her class, it is not the least bit difficult. She's always willing to help those who need help, and it actually a very nice teachers. I also honestly think that those who post negative comments just don't try to pay attention in her class, but that's just my opinion.
oKAY HARD CLASS I HAVE A C PICKS FAVS
I disagree with the previous comments. Aoki is a great teacher who is always trying to help. Do not talk in her class because she is very good at giving people extra workouts.
MS. AOKI'S PE CLASS IS THE WORST CLASS THAT EVER EXISTED. HER ACCENT IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND YET SHE DEEMS HERSELF AS AN UNDERSTANDABLE TEACHER. FURTHERMORE, MS. AOKI PICKS ON CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS IN HER CLASS. FOR INSTANCE, SHE WOULD PICK ON CERTAIN GROUPS AND DISREGARD THEIR QUESTION. ONCE SHE TOLD THE STUDENTS UNCLEARLY OF AN ASSIGNMENT, AND EVERYONE COULD NOT DO IT. WHEN THE GIRLS ASKED, SHE ANSWERED NICELY BUT WHEN THE STUDENTS HATED BY THE TEACHER ASKED, SHE RAGED AT THEM.
My son use to come home day after day crying and telling me stories of how his PE teacher would treat him. Forcing him to do extra burpees when he didn't talk even though she thought he did and singling him out in front of the entire class leaving him humiliated and embarassed. I do not agree with her methods and feel that she should not be teaching at Saratoga High any longer as she is a ruthless teacher.
When you get Aoki, most people would groan and switch out. HEr class is actually really fun, and if you try hard, she will acknowledge that. You will feel sore, but she is so enthusiastic and really tries to help you and your grade. She is rather partial to girls, but understands that you are human more than any other teacher will. Her asian jokes and back stories and music are really fun too.
people think she has a "good side", thats total bs. every time she doles out punishment, it is exclusively to boys. i am a GIRL and i notice this. at least 3 times, she has made the boys stay in to do burpees or be yelled at, when half of them are innocent and half the girls were messing around. if you get her, switch out to lugo or ellis.
She is the worst teacher in the world. SO annoying, if u get her for any class switch out
she's is a b*tch
she's not a good PE teacher at all; she makes u do weightlifting ALL the time and makes you do squats 24/7, no joke. and she's completely unreasonable. switch into lugo if u have the chance, TRUST me!
I had her for Japanese and I thought she was great. My hint for anyone who has her is to get on her good side in the beginning and ask her questions if you're confused about something. She can help!
Such a FUN teacher, can't teach at all though. Her classes are really, really fun so who cares. = )
Aoki is very hard to understand because of her accent, and she expects students to speak in Japanese. She is also unhelpful, strict and changes her stories often. NOBODY thinks she is a good teacher.
The thing with Aoki is this: she's a nice PERSON but a bad teacher. She's arbitrary, can pick favorites, doesn't explain Japanese well. Tests are pretty easy but she tends to dock you for tiny errors.
very nice when u get to know her...just has a horrible accent
She's an awesome Japanese & PE teacher and a nice person. She does an excellent job at TEACHING and pushing her students to learn. In PE she really works to get everyone into shape.. lots of running!
She's decent, and actually very enthusiastic about Japanese. Just get on her good side and despite the unfair grading/tests, her class can be fun :)
shes really nice and its easy to get an A in japanese, but she might make mistakes
Ok so at first she seems kind of mean, but if you actually get to know her shes pretty nice, just hard to understand. She doesnt really play favorites, just be nice.
ms. aoki is so funnny in japanese class..heard she was hard in pe tho
why people giving negetive reviews? I've had Ms. Aoki for 3 years for japanese and i think she did a great job. Ninhongo is such an awesome language!
WORST teacher...doesnt teach you anything..grades you on wheather she likes you or not..and she has no reasonings.
Mrs. Aoki: Your PE class is not as important as varsity football.
