Pretty hard class, gives a ton of pop-quizzes. Hard to finish a test because she gives you too many questions for the 45 minute period. Stressful at time, but she is a very good teacher and explains topics really well. Kind with offering extra help all the time.

Very hard class but it get so easier! She's terrifying but knows her stuff. She also said that she timed her test based on her self (not sure if that's true). I feel you are in geo a don't worry your grade will go up from the first quarter. Good luck!!!

pretty hard class, and gives pop quizzes all the time (in geo a at least). but it's cool to have a teacher who actually cares about her subject a lot, and youll have an easy time as long as u review the stuff at home and remember what she wants to see on tests.

Mrs. Roby can be very tough and don't expect high grades. That said, she is very knowledgeable and pushes the children to work hard. They come out knowing much more than needed by state exam. She loves her subject and conveys that to her students.

I have yet to fully grasp how one human being can be as passionate about math as Mrs. Roby, but she is an amazing math teacher. She tells you at the start of the course that you don't learn unless you fail first. She's not kidding. Brace yourself.

Alrighty, where to begin with Ms. Roby? Let's start with the positives- she knows her stuff, and puts in tons of time to help. Negatives? She assumes you know everything, and spends a lot of time being sidetracked with questions. Super nice, but I had a situation where she made an error on a test that made the question unsolveable. She counted it, and when I asked about it, she merely said, "You DO know that a 30-60-90 triangle has a rad-3 side, right?" I personally hate her, but she is nice.

She makes Geo A the most stressful, worst class ever! She over teaches for the regents which could be considered a plus but it is just unnecessary

FRAN ROBY. Where to start. ok so I hate math but I came from Bastone so anything was better than her. Roby is a good teacher cause she's really clear but man is she frustrating! Her tests get REALLY HARD as the year goes on and the final was ridiculous. hw is ok but her class gets stressful. i know a lot of people that hated her. she's nice though, don't get me wrong, and teaches well, but she can be really really stressful (and she wouldn't round up my 89.4 first quarter. never forgave her)

Her teaching style is very annoying. Many of the students in my class were "regular" towards the beginning and slackers toward the end, and I think that is due to Mrs. Roby's leniency in the beginning
