I took this class 4 years ago, and decided to give her a review now. lol. i took her geo enriched class, and thought it was really easy. She doesn't lecture too well, so you need to learn how to self study. That being said, the tests arent too hard and she does give group quizzes often. Geometry isnt too hard to self study so I guess if ur a B+/A- student in middle school math, you should be able to get an A in her class. She also tells some interesting jokes... -Sri 11-12
Though she tries, this class is pretty bad. She tries to fit in exams that would usually take close an hour and 10-15 minutes, but tries to fit it in a 50 minute time frame, giving the slower thinking a terrible time. On days when we have 80 minute periods, instead of making use of that time and taking exams on those days, we spend 30 minutes doing homework. Homework is for home, not for class, and I would much rather spend that time taking a long exam and getting a good grade on it. :|
She's a really nice person, but I haven't learned anything from her, and she might be one of the worst teachers I've had. In class, she makes us do next to impossible problems in two minutes, and it teaches us nothing. Her explanations are terrible. She gives far too much homework for the amount of content she explains in class. The tests are far too long, and she wastes a lot of the class period.
Ms Seidl does not teach anything. If you have her... expect to teach yourself everything. Her tests are also way too long, and 3/4s of the class always has to stay in during lunch or after school to finish them in which she gives you barely any extra time as she claims she has to be somewhere. She wastes a lot of time with the daily jumble, a word puzzle activity, and spends half the period correcting the homework. The day before the final, she helped us study by teaching us German math. (._.)
Ms. Seidl might not be a fantastic math teacher, but she is a great person! Sometimes I feel like she teaches too fast and she does mess up on a problem occasionally. But I feel as if she is one of the nicest and least intimidating teachers I've had! She's very lenient on homework points, loves to give bonus points, test bumps, etc. If you come in after school, lunch, tutorial she is more than happy to clarify and explain! There's few teachers like her who are so friendly and open...
One of my favorite teachers. She really knows what she is doing. However, her lessons are very unclear so be sure to ask for help at tutorial!
Are you sure you have a math degree? Teach the students better because they are all confused. Thanks.
As a person? Okay As a teacher? Horrible. Like everyone said, she does no teaching, simply gives us page numbers to read out of and expects us to learn. She has mistakes all over the place and we waste time in class doing Word Jumbles that are not related to math. She may be good at math but not at teaching.
I love Mrs.Seidl. She is fair and understanding. And her down-to-earth approach to teaching really helped me learn the concepts everyday.
I had Ms.Seidl for Geometry & I really think that her class was one of the best because I really learned alot from the teaching and class environment was nice and cozy so you could see what's going on and concentrate even more. I really liked that she helped me whenever I got stuck. If you pay attention in this class, you could get the basic information and knowledge of today's work. Her homeworks are also helpful and thoughtfully chosen?. But I agree, little more enthusiasm could be appreciated :P
She isnt the best teacher, I had to teach myself a lot of the calc. I did enjoy the daily word jumbles and random lion king and beach boys music though :)
At first I really did not like her after having her in geometry enriched, but after awhile I learned that she was very lenient in Calc AB. She always uses powerpoints to teach but that is time efficient. She can get pretty nerdy sometimes but overall shes a fun teacher. Her tests could be a little easier though.
useless useless useless. hardly ever explains in detail, all she does is read a powerpoint that she didn't make, mind you. if you ask her a question she tells you to hold on while she grabs her answer sheet. i learned nothing, in fact, i'm sure my math has deproved
Doesn't explain well and has a hard time controlling the class.
awesome teacher. helpful and easy to understand. at times assigns a lot of hw but usually it is easy. if you study for her tests than you shouldn't have a problem getting an A.
stop referring to the back of the book while teaching, other than that she's extremely nice and willing to help anyone
She's clear and knowledgeable and seems to want everyone to learn. Just do your homework. I never needed extra help, but she was always willing to give it to ot
I had Seidl for two math classes. She is a good teacher. IF you do your hwk and take notes you will do well on tests. Ferrante is the one w/ the hard tests.
i had her for geometry enriched and pre-calc honors. she is 482908402984 times better than s(c)hitneller. i wish she taught calculus BC AP instead of ferrante!!
Gah. The words! Stop it with the words. We are not kindergarteners. And you know what, not everyone in your class is a kid genius.
^.^ It's so nice to have a teacher who UNDERSTANDS YOUR QUESTIONS.
