A lot of people give Ms. Kaplan a hard time for being strict, but as long as you behave in your class you'll be fine (although that might be hard for some of you buffoons.) Coming from Mr. Saya, her lessons can certainly be a bit dull, but she is always available for extra help and she teaches her subject very thoroughly. Most of the time, the students take notes from the board. Make sure to do your homework and volunteer to participate, and you'll be fine.
She explains things pretty well but her class is very boring. All you do is take notes, but her tests are really easy. Overall easy class but very boring.
She is a great teacher. She can be mean if kids fool around, but teaches well... which is what teachers are for. She does take the thinking out of math. You can do exceptionally well in her class by just studying a lot. She teaches you methods and shows you have to show your work. Great teacher.
very gooooooood :) ._.
I went to her homeroom with ome friends to give an announcement fom our club and she sais "Ladies and Gentlemen if you don't know how to give an announcement, you can leave."
She really likes pudding so if you ask her if she wants pudding or just put a pudding cup or something like that on her desk one day in class- she will love you forever. I did it and literally I was her favorite. Seriously many of you won't try this but you should.
Ms. Kaplan is a very strict woman. Coming in from Mr. Saya's, she's kind of a bummer. Most of her quizzes are medium level and the tests are medium too. But, if you're going to do well with a teacher like Ms. Kaplan you need to get on her good side. Never miss anymore than a free on HW, always come to class prepared, never forget to bring your notebook to school, and always come to after school when she's there (she takes attendance)!
Once you get to know her she's actually a very nice woman.
There are huge pros and cons to Mrs Kaplan Pros: Great teacher Knows everything Always after school Cons: Boring class Very, very strict Lots of studying involved
She is good, if not better, at teaching than Mr. Saya, but she's really boring, so her students are always less interested. Every class, you sit and take notes, so you never do anything hands-on. Still, no one ever leaves class without understanding something. TIP: STAY AFTER-she likes you a lot more :)
Incredibly knowledgable. If I ever know .000001% of what she does in math than I will be super proud! She knows how to keep her class in line and has an effect on her students that no other teacher has (Mr. Raff would kill to be able to handle a class like that)! Just with a few words like, "Is that the best use of your time?" she has every kid wrapped around her finger. She teaches me sooooo much! Sure, she doesn't joke around as much as Mr. Saya, but she teaches us MATH- what we came for!
Extremely good teacher- I always understand everything! She may not be as "fun" as Mr. Saya, but she's just as good, if not better, at teaching.
She always is like "Study The Flowchart" and strengthen your toolbox
Mrs. Kaplan is actually one of the most knowledgeable best teachers i ever had...She knows so much and if you stay after you get everything down pat!!! She answers questions perfectly...she is a tad boring...but you always learn something
Mrs. Kaplan has a boring class but I never leave the class without understanding anything. When I stay after she is helpful and very informative. Boring class but I learn a lot! "Why is it a good idea to copy down the directions from the do nows?" "Know the flowchart" "In the intrest of time" "alright"
she is okay but kinda strict and a let down after the amazing mr. saya. lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
SHES A GREAT TEACHER!!! stay after with her she likes people more if you stay after!!!!!!! dont do anything wrong and class and ALWAYS do you homework
She is strict, but teaches you tons of math... Which is VERY important. STAY AFTER!!! It helps your grade!!!
Ms.Kaplan is a good teacher but can be very strict. She is very helpful when needed and stuff.
All shes cares about are fruits and the number 69' ussualy has her blackberry a foot away rrom her at all times
ok, heres the deal. Her class is pretty boring, BUT she is a great math teacher. I learned a lot from her. and i you stay after, she helps you soo much
I think Ms.Kaplan is very sweet and nice and loves helping her students. But to be honest, her class is just BORING. notes, notes, notes, notes, and MORE NOTES!!
She helped me a lot, personally... but she doesnt seem to really understand her students very well, and sometimes she can not be helpful at all. its just frustrating.
I think that she is organized and very devoted and happy to help us.
She taught us a lot, but in the end, it wasn't as productive as other years. It is to my understanding, and based on my peers, that Mrs. Kaplan... was not the BANANAS!!! best. However, i am just stating my GRAPES!!! opinion. Thank you, Mrs. APPLE!!! Kaplan.
Ms.Kaplan!!she a really good teacher and she draws fruits really well,but She always says this,"to the notice of time, we will now move on to the Do Now..."and she never repeats her clothes...weird...
ok nice preson but wayyy to obsessed with bananas siriously, we are learning math, not fruit
shes a good teacher but she should stop saying "not to insult anyones intellegence." Also she said someone really smart i know would be taken out of advanced math just because of that persons behavior!!! Great teacher though. very helpful and clear
I hate this woman. She's a pretty good teacher when it comes to actually learning the material, but she's very strict about homework. It doesn't matter if there was a sudden death in the family, if you already used your free pass on homework, you get five points off your grade for the quarter.
I hate her. She is mean, thinks she's 25, and lives alone with her textbook. Whenever you get up to go to the bathroom, she interrupts the whole class to say "is it an emergency because if it isnt i think you should use better judgement' although the whole point of not raising your hand was to not interrupt class time! ARRGGHHH
"For tomorrow i would like you to do page......... 1-100 all questions, all righty have a good day"! GIVEE TOO MUCH HW!!!!
i guess she's OK. i mean i'm really good at math so i find that she's a little boring...but again, that's me. she's really nice, clear, and ORGANIZED. i especially like her gradebook thing =)
"In the interest of time we will now move into the do-now" She always says that! But she is pretty kool and nice
I love her she is so supper nice. she always explains things clearly and so it is easear to understand!<3
not good!!!Tests/quizzes-easy Box of whixkey by the board???? Forces u to take a free if you dont glue in ur work She always "tells kids to say that..." All i learned is how to draw fruit
She is very strict like u need to glue in ur hw or she forces you to take a free. She doesnt do anything but draw fruit
REALLY good explainer and is so easy, but sometimes can get annoying, but take advantage of the easiness in math b/c it doesn't get any easier later on.
a good teachr, but sorta annoying b/c she says things thant can get on ur nerves (like i told u 2 ask that question) i like her tests tho cuz they r just like the quizzes
OMGshe is the best teacher eva!she was a really gr8t leader of choice. we learned so much in her class, and even tho shes kinda strict u always understand everything we miss her;(
Mrs. Kaplin- has to stop saying o i told that person 2 ask that question. Because guess what? SHE DIDNT!!!!!!!!
OMG i miss her SO much. she was actually the best teacher i have ever had. she may be tough but she teaches sooo much. she is sorley missed in CHOICE.
Mrs. Kaplan is nice but because i didn't glue in my HW she flipped out and made me take a free.
Heidi is easily 1 of my fave teachers! I learned so much in her class and she was so helpful! It is sad she is leaving Choice! I will miss her!!!
really nice, but not always very helpful. it is very sad that she has to leave.
wow...she is easily one of my fave teachers... im gonna miss her SOOOOOOOOO much next year. she was really a great teacher and leader of choice. she will be missed greatly
tests are physically impossible, you have to arrange the desks before the test starts, and she gives you no slack if you don't finish. only good thing is that she teaches well.
class is very hard and she assigns a lot of work. she is nice but many people find class very difficult.
it is soo sad that she is leaving. she was really nice and a gr8 teacher!
i can't believe that she is leaving choice! it is really sad.
nice teacher and really knows her stuff. just should be a bit fairer on grading.
everything needs to work perfectly for her. always makes students lives more difficult and has given no evidence that she even cares about her students.
her class is really hard but she is a pretty nice teacher.
now that I'm in High School I look back and realize how much she taught me. All the hard work paid off!!!!!
can be nice, but gives really hard tests and quizzes. isn't always helpful because she has a lot of meetings after school and during lunch
good teacher, for the most part. just puts stuff on the board and tells you to do it.
heidi is pretty good, but doesn't really help you in extra help. she just gives you problems and tells you if it is correct. then she shows ONLY what you did wrong. hard class.
this teacher must have the hardest class in the department, but she is usually nice and can teach
nice and clear, but can be overly strict and can grade somewhat unfairly.
doesn't give much hw which is good, but tests can be hard
insanely difficult class, but can be nice. staying for extra help is good
she is pretty good. sometimes your really happy to have her as a teacher, another you wish that she was fired. should lighten up and be nicer in grading, but knows how to teach.
shes okay, sometimes overly strict and often doesn't have time to help someone. needs to lighten up big time
a good, knowledgeable teacher. she doesn't seem to put much effort into making math fun, though. hmmmm...
a good, reliable teacher. outside of class she is really nice but is strict in class and doesn't do anything fun. she just needs to lighten up.
"Is the Advanced Math course too stressful for you?" That phrase really gets annoying. Other then that, she is pretty good.
she needs to lighten up. is it really neccessary to give hw over super bowl weekend?
Heidi is a great teacher, although she needs to lighten up on the outfits, and obviously running CHOICE is a big job, but she could make it seem she likes being in charge.
she is a good teacher that knows her stuff. i just wish she was a little nicer...
Heidi is an awesome teacher (w00t!!!) 18 thumbs up!!!!
she is really nice and gave me an extra day for my LERF when I lost it, not being mean and dopping my grade. THANK YOU!!!
Amazing teacher. Best Math and Science teacher I've had. Treats everyone how they should be treated and doesn't put up with crap. Very fair. Dresses a bit too innapropriatly though
Heidi is a tough teacher, but she has tought me SO much! She could be a bit kinder to students, but all in all is a good teacher!!
likes to knit and always chats w/ me about it during class... but is a bit strict. she is really nice and helpful and a great teacher. i enjoy math a lot.
she hates me. i'm never called on and she never tries to help me.
my sister compares her "temper" to the way a student would react if their best friend was mean to them....be mean back, and I agree.
she is nice and is a good teacher but never calls on me.
Heidi is tough, no doubt about that. She is a gr8 teacher . . .if only she had a personality to match!
a good teacher, very strict and rigid. not the nicest person ever.. but makes subjects interesting. dresses a bit too inapropriate
Not the most normal person, but an excellent math teacher. I felt really well prepared for the high school honors track.
Heidi really prepared me for High School. Hard with a purpose. If she was as good of a person as she was a teacher, she would be the best, but unfortunately...
Some or UR nuts. CHOICE was soo much more real with her in charge. Math was fun.
Her dress is VERY odd, CHOICE isn't a place to flirt Her strict curriculum doesn't allow concepts to build. Not a lot of discussion on a heady topic.
CHOICE was always a dictatorship, but Susan was at least a good dictator. Heidi is an OK math teacher, but fails to meet non academic needs.
A good teacher however doesn't run CHOICE well. Does ask you to stay after school a lot. Very easy to understand and often a fairly exciting teacher.
Kool and funny. I like the way the math topics link together. Kinda tough, but fair grader
O choice, those were some fun years. Heidi can't teach. And not that Susan is gone she runs Choice like a dictatorship...But it's ok cuz I'm not in it ne more..
The best teacher I ever had. Heidi makes math exciting and fun. Heidi has helped me enjoy a subject I hated
Fantastic teacher. Made math really interesting and fun... a little strange though.
