Linda-Gavin Morand is a 7th/8th math teacher at SVMS. Math with her was okay/decent for me, but sometimes, it was hard to understand math problems or methods she was trying to explain. For example, if you ask a particular math question, she'll tell it to you, but you still may or may not understand everything about it. However, some math subjects in her class are easy to comprehend. But many of the things she does to make the whole class understand a new math concept is somewhat questionable.
A class would start with a "Copy and Do", which basically takes up half the period of just people talking to each other. Afterwards, she gives a 20 minute PowerPoint that she never finishes because she's talking about how she went to the University of Connecticut or something. Finally, she gives you Mr. Zuercher's tests, which are on stuff she didn't teach (or was supposed to go over in the PowerPoint), so nobody passes. If you ask her about something, she says "you should have listened."
Mrs gavin morand was overall a nice teacher that you can learn with, in many cases she can be strict.
She's a good teacher after all
She teaches us a lot about math.
Gavin Morand doesn't teach. She always uses outside sources such as videos from other professors because she is lazy. She assigns you a page in the textbook and makes you do it. She is boring and old. She doesn't teach a single thing. Is it right for 80% of the class to fail? Screw off Gavin Morand horrible teacher
I went into her class upset that I got her, but she is made out a LOT worse than she is! She is actually not all that mean, but she is strict. If you actually talk to her she is quite nice and funny. As for her teaching, she could be considered a bad teacher because of how much group work she has you figure out on your own after watching a video, but if you ask her questions (specific ones) she is very helpful!
Mrs Gavin Miranda tries to be helpful, and tried to help you. If you step up and ask her, she will help you. She teaches in a unusual way, yet she's a good teacher
I am not happy with her teaching ability. Kids are more confused after her teaching. There is not one single student who is happy to be in her class. It is unfortunate that kids are made to suffer.
This teacher is boring, but not "mean". She does however love dragons. I had her for pre-algebra and she was a very bad teacher. One thing I am most upset about is when she didn't mention that an entire SECTION was going to be on a test, and didn't teach it or mention it. Everyone thought she skipped it (She does that sometimes) but instead it was on the test. She apologized after everyone noticed, but she didn't let anyone to retake it or even remove that question! Don't go with Gavin-Morand.
Have her for the second year now. No complaints! Her teaching style is better than others.
Well, let's just start off saying adjusting to Common Core is horrible! All the math teachers expect you to know the concepts, and you probably won't, like me. The tests are hard, the grading is hard, and the classwork is done in groups, so unless you don't have a person in your group smarter than you, then oh well! But in terms of her personality, she's odd. She LOVES Dragons, literally loves, and believes in Dragons, and everyone knows that. So bring her a dragon and you'll be fine!
She is not the best teacher ever. Her tests are very hard but she doesn't exactly teach all the subjects.
Linda Gavin Morand is not a teacher...and has no interest in helping children learn nor any aptitude in fostering enthusiasm for learning and growth. A perfect example of what is wrong with our public school system and its inability to move on inadequate teachers.
Mrs gavin is my math teacher she is pretty chillllllll ans nice but pretty STRICT too, she is a strong teacher that can let u learn good math stuff easily.
She is very strict on grading, not very nice too many students. She is not fair on grading and her ways of grading are to strict. I believe. I was warned before I had her class that she wasn't good en
it is not that hard to get a good grade if you study alot for the test, when i say study, i mean study all night
who likes math teachers really... she's extremely helpful, though. her test are uber hard O_O
she has a habit where when u ask a question she makes u feel like an idoit when she answers.
she's really hard but she's nice and will help u to get better.
she has a great personality, but she goes through lessons really quickly and you find your self teaching your self out of the bookk.She also gives really hard tests but it will help in highschool.
I don't think that she is a bad as everyone says she is. If you actually listen, you'll learn something. If you come early in the morning she gives you extra credit! Shes actually a really fun teacher.
she is the meanest teacher in the world an is extremely hard and she is weird fo instance shes obssessed with dragons. she is a rat
i had her for 8th grade she is a very good teacher she will prepare u well for highschool although at times she can be confussing&her methods sometimes dont make sense but she is an okay teacher :)
ughh, worst teacher i've ever had. sometimes teaches things that we aren't even going to need for hw, so we don't know what to do for hw. gives little hw, but still mean and boring in class.
She is very helpful when i have problems with homework, and she is always extremely organized. She is the only teacher I have ever had who has never lost any of my assignments.
Mrs. Gavin-Morand ROCKS>.....she doesnt give taht much homework (10 problems tops) and she explains well in my class. SHes really great
Mrs. Gavin-Morand is a good teacher but she's not always very helpful if you've been sick or been out. But overall she's a good teacher.
You dont teach concepts really well but got to luv ya
good note-giver, but she plays favorites really bad especially for smart sevies. o well, o well.
mrs. gavin-morand may be a little strict, but she gives good notes and makes sure students understand algebra.
pleath thake outh your homeworkth. ...she plays favorites! especially to really smart 7th graders!!
Ms Gavin-Morand is actually a decent teacher. I understand what she's teaching, plus she put me into Honors Geo! If you think she's awful, consider Intro...
VERY HARD i got a B and went to regular geometry, i am getting a 98% so i am going to H algebra 2 she is like hoonors
a great teacher in the building of my foundation of math
I'm afraid to ask her a question, she is very degrading.
