Ms Aboody is often late or absent with little explanation. Many subjects are barely touched upon in class and feature heavily on tests. A couple times, we were given new topics a few days before the test with the expectation that we would google them and teach ourselves the topics. She always goes off on irrelevant tangents and makes weird jokes. She's a nice person and is willing to help outside of class, but we don't have that free time, and if she could teach better that wouldn't be needed.

I do super well in her class and she really likes me (which is the biggest plus because otherwise I definitely wouldn't feel the same way), but if anything she's just FRUSTRATING. babysitting isn't the best word, but I feel like I have to be the one checking up to make sure we're all set with my grades/other things. her jokes make it fun but it's hard when you don't end up going back to things you started (which happens all the time) and stuff like that.

I was really frustrated with Ms. Aboody and her unorthodox teaching style. She wastes a lot of class time, her jokes cross the line and she doesn't explain concepts very well. Sometimes I'm not sure whether she understands the math herself. BUT I can tell she cares a LOT about her students and if you approach her outside of class she will do her best to help you out, give you practice problems, resources etc. You can do well in this class but you have to be proactive and learn on your own.

Ms. Aboody is an incredible math teacher. Even when I sometimes don't get it, and so don't participate, she checks up on me to make sure I understand the material, and when I don't, she explains. Whenever someone does badly on a test/quiz and feels bad about she goes out of her way to make them feel better and get them a tutor. She's incredibly nice and a great teacher.

Super nice person, and I feel that I'm learning a lot, except in her class some kids get it and some kids don't at any given time. Those who do participate, those who don't get it don't participate and will just be lost. Kids often feel intimidated that if they ask questions others will find them stupid, but don't be so intimidated! She's so nice, and she won't find you stupid and it won't harm your grade to ask questions - it will help you because you'll do better on tests.

I didn't have the best year in math in 8th grade. Her teaching style does not match me. Sometimes she doesn't teach, and the majority of the time, she puts up a problem and expects you to know it. Those who do, raise their hand. She assumes everyone knows it. She likes to put challenging problems on tests, but by practice, they aren't much harder than the hardest in class. She is the nicest lady ever, always understanding, and lets you retake tests a lot. She's a bit crazy but it's refreshing.

Ms. Aboody knows what she teaches very well, and she makes every attempt to help you if you need it, as well as to make up points on quizzes and tests. She does go fast, and can be hard to follow since she leaps between other topics (like belly dancing) and math quite abruptly. Overall though, you learn a lot, and she makes it fun. A great teacher.

Her jokes can be offensive, but are mostly vulgar, inappropriate and disgusting. She'll often show us a little more of her body than I'd like; shaking her bottom, slapping her leg and not to mention scratching her back.
The teaching style sucks, too. She gets sidetracked so only teaches for half the period, and she teaches quickly, speaks quietly and has awful handwriting. She begins whatever she teaches randomly. She makes assumptions about her students. She expects Einsteins in her class.

The 'Boods is out of her MIND. If you're good at math, like I was, then she's not that hard a teacher. If you're bad at math, good luck learning anything and expect her to ontract out one of the many tutors she knows, rather than giving you help. That was probably the funniest class ever, though. If you're a good student, you can just sit back and laugh into your sleeve all year.

Linda Aboody is a very nice person that is always willing to entertain you in every way that is possible. Her humor, though, takes up more time than her lessons at times and causes many students not to do quite well. Today report cards were received and the only students that got better than a B were the students that had learned the topic prior to her lessons. I enjoy being in Linda Aboody's class but she is too easily sidetracked.
