Mrs.Stein always was willing to work after school if I needed help. Her teaching style was great. She's really encouraging, and an exceptional teacher.

I Liked Mrs. Stein as a person but not a my Geometry teacher. This was the first year with common core geometry and she did not handle it very well. She made us very confused. Her tests were so hard I barely passed them. I always had to get outside help to understand her math. If you get her as a teacher you better be ready to work very hard

She gives you easy homework and classwork, but when the test comes she gives you something that you have never learned.
Very laid back counts the number of papers to pass back wrong a lot. ( umm hello math teacher)

My class was a bit crazy, over the top. In regents geometry it was like core. I had solid mid-90s but that's because Im a hard worker. If you want to learn and get good grades, you have to go in on your own time and get extra help. You get no attention in class.

Pretty difficult, willing to help you if you don't show up. If you don't show enough interest in the course you're screwed. Just pay attention and do the work, and you'll be fine. Hates slackers. Seriously.

I found Ms. Stein to be one of the worst teachers I've had. She teaches as if we should know the material already, always overcomplicating things.

Watch out for Mrs. Stein. She overcomplicates math, especially in course 3H, making it harder than it needs to be. However, survive 3H and you'll get Mr. Meskutovecz, a much better teacher. She goes way too fast, especially early in the A.M.
