Ms. Wortman's AP Calc (AB) class was probably the most difficult class I took in high school. I have never been an auditory learner (I like it more when a teacher/professor writes on the board), but somehow I had to learn--because that is practically the ONLY way you will succeed in her class. That being said, she is probably the BEST teacher I had at Beverly. If you think you know what passion is, you just have to wait and meet this woman. She will whoop you into shape for the AP--I got a 5.

Ms. Wortman is a great person. She is very nice and quite funny. Usually I am proficient at math. Unfortunately her teaching method did not "click" with me and I am struggling to get a passing grade in her class. She will try to help if you ask for it; however, I am in such a deep hole from not learning anything that I fail to comprehend anything she says. Achieving in her class really depends on the type of learner/student you are.

Ms. Wortman is quite possibly the best teacher I have ever had and i'm sure the majority of her students will agree with me. I can not explain what she does but whatever she does it works. Her class is somewhat hard only because she's such an great teacher that it doesn't matter. If you put in the effort to learn you'll do fine. Also an automatic 5 on the AP Calc exam. She truly cares and loves her students. Be grateful if you have her because she will set you up for success. Love you Ms.W -HZ

She is really nice! At the beginning of the year, i didn't understand anything about geometry and now i'm starting to get better at it. she is very helpful and patient with students that don't get the subject. Very energetic.

She is one of the best teacher's I have ever had. She made AP Calculus interesting and easy to comprehend. Take good notes, ask questions, do the homework, and you should be able to get an "A". She is also very nice and funny, which makes her pleasent to work with.

So long as you do the homework, it's an easy A and an easy 5 on the AP. Great teacher, interesting, fun in class, supposedly more involved and helpful than Borsum.

DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS. She was the worst teacher i have ever had, she gives you no time to take tests and bases grades solely on if you do well on your tests.

She knows her stuff but it's easy to get lost, so take notes and do homework. Tests and quizzes are pretty hard. Ask questions. She seems nice, but she hated my class because most of us were failing and didn't care to make an effort.

She is a great teacher! She is so smart and really knows what she is teaching. Try not to get lost. She is really funny and always makes you laugh. She does not really have favorites-but just try hard and she will like you. Also-tests and quizzes are all that matters-you must do well-to get a high grade! Hard towards the end of the year. I hope I get her again in high school!
