She Is not a Physics teacher and and never taught Physics ever at Edward R. Murrow High School. She always teaches Regents Biology and Living Environment Regents classes at
E.R. Murrow H.S. She is a very kind and one of the best hard working caring teacher who puts the students first.

This is the place to let out all my anger about ms.maddix. every time i ask her a science related question she never knows the answer so she asks someone to answer my question. Also whenever we complete class handouts she collects them and never gives them back, so im thinking she throws them out and i need them to study for the regents. And i always pass her test because its the same test she gives us for homework, classwork, and quiz so i basically memorized every answer.

I really dont understand how Ms. Maddix became a teacher. She always talks about how "i couldve been a biologist and go payed a lot more but instead i'm here with you", if she couldve had a better job that payed better then why didnt she take it? she wasted the whole band on going over the aim over and over again. she said "___ read the aim" and the person will read it but then she gets caught up in something else and talks to someone else when a person is trying to read the stuff on the board"

This teacher Barbara Maddix is not a good teacher. She cannot teach at all. I am very afraid I am going to fail the regents with a teacher like this.If class starts at 11:50 , we dont start the lesson until 12:30 and class ends at 12:40.All Ms.Maddix does is make us copy notes she gets off of google and she doesnt explain not a thing. Honestly i miss my old teacher Ms.Budesa. Ms.Maddix is horrible.

Ms.Maddix is not mean at all, BUT she cannot teach. she has the aim,objective questions,and key words for more than half the band and just lets us copy it. we only lean for about 10 minutes mean while the band is about 55 minutes long. When someone is trying to correct her when she makes a mistake she gets upset and call us disrespectful. she talks about her mom, her life, how she got a scholarship to be a doctor, her"boyfriend", and it is irrelevant to the lesson. LIKE C'MON TEACH!

Ms. Maddix is very distracted and unfocussed. During class she talks about her personal like and doesnt focus on the curriculum. She also repeats the same things over and over again when she does teach. She most of the time starts to actually teach 20-30 minutes into the band. I feel very un-prepared for the regents which are in a little over a month. She also gave multiple classes the same test 3-4 times so we can know the material. But shouldnt we also focus and have tests on other materials?

She is sooooooooooo disorganized. She runs out of class at random times to get papers. And she repeats everything over and over and over. "It is due on Monday. When is it due, class?" Thats very annoying. And DO NOT ask her a question about anything because she will either tell you to pay more attention or tell you to not debate with her or disrespect her :P i hate her i hope i never get her again.
