Honestly one of the best math teachers I have had. In fact I kept the notes I took in her class and used them to survive Pre-Calc. Sure the way she grades is strict, but being organized and neat are valuable skills to learn.

Miss Gawbill's by far the best math teacher I have ever had. She is very strict at first but as the year goes on she becomes closer with the class & makes it one I looked forward to going to everyday. Her teaching style is great. The no iPads rule really helps us students to focus on what we are learning & not distractions. She's very knowledgeable & always has her students best interest in mind (she yells only for good reason) Her tests are easy because of how well she's taught the material

She is a Good teacher but very intense and strict. If you are on her good side, then you are set. Although she is strict, she is a very good and knowledgable teacher.

I had Ms.Gawbill last year. Even though she is very strict, her teaching styles are by far the best! Spectacular teacher- it was an honor learning from her.

Not really reasonable when it comes to absences...or much else really. Severe to the extreme; do NOT cross her. She is frequently disrespectful. Allows very few questions per class.

She is very organized but just can't teach calculus. When going over our homework, she would frequently be unable to explain the problems - as in, she literally did not know how to do them.

Gawbill is alright as long as you are on her good side. She likes making jokes about certain students, but if you get her alone she's fine. However, teaching might not have been the BEST choice...

She commands respect yet, hypocritically, does not offer any in return. A good teacher, but is overshadowed by the lack of dignity showed to students

you aren't a mathematician, you're a teacher. teaching requires lenience in the socializing area.

Not one of my favorites... I think she's a pretty good teacher, but her attitude needs a little adjusting.

Always tried to explain things, but gets frustrated and temperamental easily. But get her in a good mood and she can be unusually funny, and more helpful.

She's ok but sometimes she gets confused and forgets how to do some problems in class. She doesn't give the best notes either, but she is very thorough.

A very bad teacher. She doesn't like helping people at all. She likes to overcomplicate simple matters to look smart. Don't ever turn to her for help.
