Ms Nicolandis was a horrible teacher. On average she got our tests graded about 4 weeks after we took them. She expects that we understand the material and doenst do a good job teaching. First semester I had a C and then I got a tutor to actually teach me and then i got an A

Hey freshmen! I am so serious when I say if you have her on your roster in the beginning of the year switch out. I had a tutor the entire year because I could not pay attention in her class after a while when I realized she made zero sense. I believe she has a good idea as to what she is say but she speaks in fragments and while explaining she kind of just finishes the problem hoping you will understand. Math is something that often does not spark anything, a good teacher is vital early, get out

She is dumber then most of her students. If you are in her class get out ASAP. She doesn't answer your questions at all and gives you homework that even she can't figure out. Most of the work in her class is from other teachers that she hasn't taught yet.

She wasn't a great teacher, but not horrible. Some things she said make no sense but some things she's good at explaining. She does pick favorites, so get on her good side!

She is a horrible teacher. When you try to ask a question, she interrupts you assuming she knows what you're asking, but really doesn't and will talk about something completely different. She also just came out with this thing where she takes off points if you're "off-task", but she just uses that as a reason to yell at people.

All I can say, my first impression was VERY wrong. Back then, I was actually excited to learn math and do well for her..... :( Hang in there if you get her.

She tries her best and talks in a very loud voice when she wants to get her point across, and she's nice, but half my friends who have her are failing. Oh yea, really, you're best off seing the book for help before school =(

Nicolandis is a nice person, but not the best teacher. She is kind of a ditz, loses her train of thought only 10 times a day, and tries to turn of the overhead using the room light switch. Her tests are hard. My advice: don't worry about paying attention in class - just learn from the book.

She completely ruined my math life. When asked a question, she has absolutely no idea what she is talkng about. she CANNOT teach. When going for help she wastes time and doesn't clarify. She get upset at the class when the class doesn't understand..she judges people and im pretty sure I can't get into the top colleges i wanted to get into now, because of my grade. Even with tutors, my grade wasn't stellar. The only people that received good grades were those that already knew how to do it/understand fast...

Mrs. Nicolandis is underappreciated--in my opinion, shes a great lvl 4 ath teacher (although sometimes teaches too much stuff we already know) and knows her stuff very well. I've learned a lot so far this year and I'm gonna miss her when she leaves. Shes really cool--when we played Pictionary that was pretty fun!!

If you want your child to learn and enjoy math change teachers now. She does not know her material, does not answer questions and can be abusive at times.

She'll help you, but she doesn't know the material well. Wastes time-"I'm confusing myself". Fun but you have to do a lot of the learning on your own. (Algebra 2/Trig)
