Mrs. Goetz is a pretty amazing teacher. She makes sure that everyone understands everything and explains She always brings up what the AP/IB test requires/wants, which is really helpful. We're always working until the bell. The only 2 things I want to mention are that 1) she doesn't go over homework in class and 2) she has favorites, but the only way you can tell is by who she talks to more, not by what grade they get. If she likes you or not doesn't affect your grade at all, your work does.

Easily lovable, but I find my experience with her very difficult as a student. As someone with attention problems and depression, I might've come off like I didn't care & feel that she pegged me as a "certain type" of person and maintained that impression, despite emails from my counselor. Lessons are very unhelpful and unclear, leading me to study on my own but do very badly on unit tests. Openly admits that she "doesn't hate students because she doesnt care enough". Plays favorites.

I love Ms. Goetz. She is super-fun every day, makes all of her notes interesting and enjoyable, loves to joke around in class and stuff, and is really chill. Even though I was taking one of the hardest math classes in the school, it was probably one of my favorite classes I have ever had. She is also always willing to help and answers your questions while teaching well. I suppose the only thing that might not be the best is that she's so chill, if a student is slacking she won't really interfere

Great, enthusiastic, fun teacher. It's a very fast-paced class but she does a good job making sure people understand and she always makes herself available for extra help.

Quirky and comes off as a good teacher. Unfortunately she has a tendency to play favorites and to tell stories instead of teaching. Come to her at lunch and you will be mobbed by her followers. Become a follower and you will receive at least a A-.

Ditto to the cult-like followers. I wish she'd spell it out simple so I could get a finer grade. -1000000 marks for the difficulty to understand her. 1000000 marks for hearing her larger-than-life ejaculations from across the hall!! hahaha. Quirky, but loveable. For a teacher, Id prefer an actual strict educator. As a person, respectable, funny, interesting.

Plays favorites in a terrible way, and Mrs. Goetz has almost a cult-like following of people who love her. I am not one. For people who aren't always great at math (especially in hard classed), such people frequently ask questions. She would rush class or not allow people to ask questions so that she could tell amusing stories. While I usually like teachers who tell fun stories, it shouldn't be more important than the class. Mrs. Goetz seriously need to get her priorities straight.
