She's really sweet and cute and means well, but she doesn't teach at ALL and if you ask her questions she answers every question, but the question ask. She'll give us a lab first and then two days before the test she'll go over the notes for the first time. Sometimes we don't even get instructions on the lab.

She's a really sweet lady and means well, but she doesn't teach that well. She does teach, but she'll give us a lab first and then two days before the test she'll go over the notes for the first time. Sometimes we don't even get instructions on the lab. My class is full of 18 idiots who didn't care about the class at first and now just bully her. It's sad to watch, really. She calls out certain students during class, but most of the time they deserve it. I don't know how I've survived this far.

Mrs Norton's class is not the easiest, but every time I needed the help and took the time to ask her after school, she has been extremely kind and helpful. I didn't make the best grade in her class, but I feel that it really challenged me and I really earned my "B" instead of just having it handed to me like so many others.

I know this woman means well, at least I hope. But the problem with her is that she just can't teach. She avoids answering direct questions like the plague, and finds it fun to give as many assignments as possible in the shortest amount of time.

Well I'm going to have to write a review on here or one day I'm just going to go off on this "teacher" in class. Norton is not only the most disorganized "teacher" I've had, but she is the least helpful as well. We all just had a test where the class average was an F... Perhaps you should take some responsibility for that, you oblivious turd. I also concur with the rating a few posts below this. I have lost my religion due to the realization that this type of person is allowed near students.

I guess I'll add my own two cents even though the rating speaks for itself. This woman is even more disorganized than me, and I'm a junior boy which says ALOT about her. Besides that, she has no clue what she is doing when it comes to teaching students. As some people already said we have to spend our nights talking to each other in out facebook group just to learn the material she was supposed to teach us. The fact that she still has a job is a testament to the problems with the tenure system.

JK Rowling based Sybill Trelawney off of this teacher. The reason she doesn't teach is because she doesn't know. She is unable to answer many of the questions she gives us.

She is so NICE but honestly the woman can't teach for her life. She basically told us the first day of class that we would be expected to cheat.

She is a good teacher.She can be hard but she teaches you everything that is on the test. If you are in physical science,if all you do is try & you'll do fine

don't bother asking questions for clarity. Might as well figue it out on your own. Cause she will confuse you worse.

She doesn't do a great job of teaching. I just don't understand her sometimes. It's great that she scales the exams! I'm glad I'm out!
