She was my nicest teacher in 7th grade. She's very smart and extremely nice. She's pretty helpful but can have a hard time explaining some difficult concepts to people who know less than she does. I think she's underrated with kids in the school, but I think she's very good.

I had her for three years in middle school, she by far was one of my favorite teachers I ever had. She made coming to school fun for me and I found her dry sense of humor to be HYSTERICAL. I wish I could have her right now for calc because I'm drowning in bad teaching. Appreciate her while you have her.
