In light of the recent comments, I felt obliged to share my own experiences. She would often mention her martial arts experience. She was intimidating. She made things fun & would smile & joke, but when a student was misbehaving, she could become very stern.
There was an instance in which she threw a beaker into the back room, completely shattering it - I'm fairly certain it was to silence someone talking, but can't remember if it was done in anger or meant to be funny.
I am now a parent but 18 years ago I met her as an HHS student interested in learning self defense which she worked tirelessly to make as an alternative option for PE. My friends and I took her course for PE credit and learned so much from her and took that knowledge with us to college. Heidi helped to implement something that the students were in need of and did so with upmost care, concern and professionalism. I'm forever grateful.
Best teacher ever, even though I was a terrible Chem student- Mrs.g was always willing to help me out. Very patient, very kind (also would never hurt her students, she's always joking around that's her nature) anyhow, #freegauntner.
Mrs. Gauntner has been an amazing and positive influence on my child and others in her classrooms. She is dedicated to teaching and should be given the respect she deserves.
Mrs. Gaunter is a legend! Don't ever say she wants to hurt her students. The thing going around about Gaunter is not TRUE! FREE GAUNTER! She did nothing wrong Hudson High School! The Administration is WRONG!
I have Mrs. G right now. Although I'm struggling in the class, she does everything possible to help you. Always there if you have questions and she's hilarious:)
Mrs. Gautner is one of the best teachers I've ever had. She gives out a lot of extra credit too :) Overall, very smart, fair, and makes sure a student is never behind. ADVICE: never miss a test day, the make up tests are 1000x harder.
Great teacher. good at helping students understand, makes the class interesting!
very clear and helpful. the class is way too easy though. i can't even see the wagon i'm so ahead of it.
The best teacher! She is so patient and makes us all laugh each day! I would probably hate chemistry if I did not have her! However best teacher by far! Pray you get her!!
Gaunter is a nice person but knows when to put her foot down. If you give a solid effort in her class it will be rewarded. She is very knowledgeable and always willing to help.
She is a great teacher, the subject is hard though beware, yet with her teaching skills, there is nothing to worry about.
The best teacher, I love her and wish she taught AP Chem. I would take it then.
I loved the class and the teacher! BEST chem. teacher you can have!
She is such a fantastic teacher. The way she taught chemistry made it so easy to understand.
Hands down best teacher! Good at her job and super funny, she makes chem so simple and occasionally will beat a kid up or light something on fire. Just don't fall off the wagon and into a hole!!!!
The best science teachers! She's hilarious and awesome at getting the point across. She warns you where trouble spots are, and the effort is worth getting exempt from the final!
So caring and helpful! One of my favorite teachers I had in High School.
Thank you Mrs. Gauntner. You have made chem so easy for me to understand
No teacher is more deserving of a students effort than Heidi Gauntner. She is beautiful inside and out, strong, and balanced. She is understanding yet challenging. She knows what is important in life
She was a great teacher and really tried to help you understand if you needed help. And the karate demonstrations were hilarious!
She genuinely cares about everyone in the class and teaches so that everyone can understand. One of the best teachers at Hudson.
One of the best teachers I have ever had, but if you ask her to show you karate, you volunteer yourself.
Fav teacher this year! She understands that we don't understand everything. Awsome teacher.
she is the most helpful teacher i have ever had and cares about every one of her students. she wants to see everyone succeed
mrs g you are god! she is a very cool and very smart teacher and actualy wants to teach, if u get n her bad side though shes a biznatch.
Mrs. Gauntner is the shiz! I love that class! she's so helpful and understanding!! Love ya mrs. G!
gaunter is my hero, i wanna be her when i grow up. i mean... she's a lethal weapon. yeah. you rock mrs. g.
Mrs. Gauntner I love you! Your the best teacher I've ever had! I looked forward to your calls everyday! Event hough I might not like chem. you made the class
she helped me to learn how to avoid eating a bucket of goldfish
Gauntner really tries to help when your grades are low, not just tell you what an awful student you are. Great sense of humor, lots of fun.
She's one of the few teachers who doesn't care so much about her class as she does for the students. Makes her class a nice enviornment to be in.
Really cool, genuinely cares about teaching. She's very open and approachable, and is the only teacher who breaks boards or shows you pressure points in class!
A really great teacher. She cares for all of her students and will work with you until you understand the material. I luv her class. I wish she taught others.
She is one of the best teachers in the school! i look forward to being in her class because its just so much fun
GREAT TEACHER! she actually cares about the class and you, and makes it fun. She has a great sense of humor. Favorite teacher junior year by far
She's awesome, and she really cares about us, in chemistry and also outside of school. She's good at sledding.
Makes class fun, love how she likes to have fun with experiments.
Nothing bad to say here. It's always been a wonderful start to my day.
She is so cool, and though easy, was the best chemistry teacher in the school. Example of a class: Listening to Bob Marley while bending glass with fire.
