I'm about to graduate and am rating all my teachers here. But this one got fired so this review is pointless. Anyways, she was fired for having migraines and showing up anyways, subsequently falling asleep in class and being in pain and generally being dishonest about her condition, but it took awhile to fire her because her husband covered for her, as he worked across the hall. Before all that though, she was a Tigger-obsessed halfway decent teacher. Davis replaced her, so we're all better off.

NOT GOOD TEACHER, I am a parent, schedule to meet with her, she came 15 minutes late, her lesson started in 5 minutes, she is not supportive to students, absent a lot, do not very helpful to students. She is not a good teacher, she was at Mira Loma, I am glad she is gone. BAD TEACHER

My experience with Ms. Thayer has been terrible, she continues to show up to class late and falls asleep in class.
One day I walked in to ask her a question and she was asleep at her desk so I had to wake her up, and mind you this is during the school day. During one lesson almost every student in the class didn't understand what she was teaching, so when we started asking questions she became angry with us even when we were trying to understand the concept.

I did not understand math when I had mrs. thayer. She is a very nice person overall, and I enjoyed the atmosphere of the class. However, I struggled with almost every concept due to the way she taught

I don't know why there are so many bad reviews. Mrs. Thayer is really nice and always willing to help you understand something. If only she could finish a lesson every now and then...

Mrs. Thayer is a great teacher and will explain concepts to you if you ask. However, she sometimes falls asleep in class.

she's one of those teachers that teaches to the top 5%. you can ask for help outside the class and she offers xtra credit to boost grades but if she actually taught in class, those wouldnt be needed

Thayer's a really good teacher, but she's such a strict grader! Like she gives you half credit for miniscule things. But she's still cool and she does tell really corny jokes but they do help!

Great teacher. Grades fairly hard but that helps teach you to get things all the way correct. AP calculus is really fun and we learn a lot. You can fix a low grade if you try really hard and do EC.

great teacher, she makes everyone pass the IB or AP test (i have had her for both). my only problem is that if you do not understand something she won't go over the concept, only individual problems. sweetie!

For IB Math 1, she taught horribly first semester and then better second semester. Could grade a little easier. Is nice but does not seem to handle problems well.

I had her for algebra in the eighth grade, and I'm glad to hear that her teaching style has improved since then. She's a very smart and cool person in general.

A nice person, but she doesn't actually teach her IB1 class. We are expected to already know the material.
