People who dislike Ms. Risdon are those who cannot handle her class. In truth, her class is one of the best at the school. The level of Algebra 2H is nothing compared to that of Precalc H and Calc AB/BC AP. It is has so much structure that you're never left hanging. There is never something she hasn't taught that appeared on the test. She always makes sure every student is taken care of and well taught. Yes, she can be harsh, but so is the rest of the world :)
good teacher but very strict
Mrs.Risdon was a great teacher in my opinion. I like the fact that she actually teaches and answers any questions you have. I learned a ton from her.
Isn't a teacher supposed to help students to succeed? But she is peeling student's confidence and self esteem.
She's a good teacher. However, she is hard to listen to with her constant mmkays and talking to herself. Her long, multi-colored nails are distracting as well. Just pay attention and do well on tests.
hard class, but she really teaches and helps students actually learn the material.
Hard class, but if you pay attention to what she is teaching, you'll pass
go into the class knowing you'll have to work hard (especially for Alg 2H). she'sgreat teacher, I learned alot. take her class seriously since she's devoted to making you prepared for precalc honors!
she's really makes sure that students are able to understand the material and to know the fastest and easiest ways of completing problems. she was an amazing teacher! (though its easy to get bored)
Apparently she's on weight watchers. I don't think its working. ;]
she is the best math teacher i ever had, she teaches so well and helps you learn everything, she is very serious though
She's not someone you'd want to hangout with, but she's a great teacher. She covers everything in class, pay attention and you won't need to study. I wish I still had her.
too many 'mkaaay's. i think her tests can be easier. or she needs to provide lessons with more details.shes alright.
Best math teacher I ever had. Volume can be a bit loud at times but understandable since that way, the back can hear. Easy to understand the material after she teaches it. Tests are completely fair
don't know about the personality, but definitely a good teacher. i learned so much.
not very easy, but definitely helpful. prepares you for years to come.
She really needs to stop eating *junk* food every morning and stop that mmmmmkay thing... seriously. Otherwise, pretty good teacher.
good teacher, tests are tough, class is repetitive. turn in all homework, make sure you know the material very well cuz she makes her test as hard as possible. Very annoying when talking. mmmmmkay!
i think she's a pretty good teacher, she can really embarass a student though
What everybody said was pretty much true. But I don't think she teaches all that well, but maybe that's just me. And she definitely picks on some people...and screams...it's scary. and she's mean. but like the others, she's mmmmmkay ;)
she definately knows what she doing and tells you what she wants so you know what to study for on tests, quizes, etc. but shes kinda scary at times, but then again, which teacher isnt?
Her class is okay, tests r kinda hard, good at teaching tho.
Great Computer Teacher when I had her at MHS but really I think she's Mr. Mackie's daughter from South park MMMKAAAYYY
She is a very bad teacher and never finishes the lesson. We always have to guess how to do the hw. Definitley picks favorites an sticks with them.
mrs. risdon seems like she likes to pick on the male students a bit... she's also very strict with theorems...
i had her for 2 weeks & then dropped out. i kno shes an excellent teacher, but no no...not for me. yu really need to earn th grade...
hard,good teacher, but hard, good teacher though, did i mention hard, pretty good teacher, oh yeah, and she's hard, yet a good teacher, to conclude, she's hard
wow so hard very clear helpful, she answers ALL your questions test are too hard though. teaches good but her easy homework doesn't get your ready for her tests
Skilled teacher, clarifies everything and knows what she's teaching about. Hard at first, but she teaches well enough to compensate for undercomings.
Although she is a bit challenging she is extremely fair and she tests you on what she teaches-never surprises. She knows what she's talking about in math.
She is very challenging and she is very formal towards her students...she is very fair and a very good educator...
She might not be very lenient or nice, but she's fair and she teaches well.
She teaches the subject matter well. so well, in fact, that students do well on her difficult tests.
shes amazingly hard but i learned a lot. she's a good teacher.
