In middle school, I didn't like her at all. In high school, I'm really thankful I had her as a teacher. Even though you may think the stuff she teachs is pointless, it really comes in handy. It will be a tough year, but its all worth it in the end.
She is really stern and very annoying. I do not like her at all. She favors some kids and hates other kids. Her class is really hard and extremely boring, but it could get you in good classes for future years. Also, in her class you get a ton of quizzes. She is probably, no she is, my worst favorite teacher in the whole school.
Mrs. McKenna and Mrs. Race were two of my favorite teachers at Hoppock. Mrs. McKenna - although very challenging - helped me A LOT when it comes to preparing you for high school. I am in my Freshman y
Mrs. Mckenna has a hard class,but she prepared me even past my Jounior Year in Highschool. I remember that she always freshined the class by a little humor.
Mrs. McKenna was the greatest teacher I've ever had. I was in a rough time of my lifewhen i had her and she did everything she could to help me out.Now I'm in college and still no teacher compares
Mrs. McKenna is probably doing a great job preparing us for high school. But by the time we get to high school we've lost any passion we once had for scince, and we'll aproach it with a bad attitude.
shes a great teacher but shes an insane maniac (no offense to her) but really do u want kids to love science or hate it, also. she NEEDS a new hobby, i bet she tests. her bath water D.O. amounts!!!!
Everyone is complaining about tests... it helps you out HUGELY in High School... Physics will be a breeze!
Agreed that she is very difficult, but it pays off hugely in high school. You will be very well prepared and highschool physics will be easy. Just deal with it now and future science will be easy!
she tought me more about physics and in more depth in 3/4s of a year then i learned in a whole year last year as a freshman
the best teacher i have had in the 10 years that i have been in school. you may think shes hard in middle school but when you get to high school it all pays off. A LOT!!!!!!!
She might be hard now, but u will be glad you had her as your teacher in high school
She's ok. The best thing about her is she likes football and Rutgers. Alright!!! Bad thing is she's extremely hard and I can't ever understand her. She will help me though, and it works Studying helps
YOU ROCK MRS. MCKENNA!!!!!!!!She is a VERY good teacher.
Mrs. Mckenna. i only had her for 1 and a half years. but she was the greatest and most helpful teacher ever. she helped me get through a hard time and taught me a lot about science.
Tough but fair and MAKES you learn no matter how hard you try....
A very tough but excellent teacher. Science was interesting and working on the recycling project was great. I can understand the negetive reviews, but she really helps in the long run.
she can be a good teacher if she's in a good mood...she's only tough because she is getting us ready for highschool..sometimes she can be mean but she's better than some teachers
Rules and requirements seem unclear and changing. Detailed written directions would help. Also noticed correct homework marked incorrect. Trouble getting response for ?'s Try to smile and relate
Getting an F is your problem. She grades harshly and piles up on homework, but she gets the material done, and better than most other teachers.
I think you had something against my child. We would look at the quiz or test check with your notes and they would be correct. We knew what was expected but this is just outrageous
You need to explain stuff more, you really scare everybodyeven if no tests or quizes are going to be in your class that day everyone is seriouisly freaking out worst teacher ever
U were the toughest teacher i have ever had but u really help a lot in high school.
U don't explain! I failed my last test cuz of you!!!
ur a good teacher but u should explain things better to make them seem less confusing!!
I can't believe ur actually giving us a test on our last week of school...that should be against the rules!
ur a good teacher but ur directions are very confusing and you don't help us. u just give us the work and make us do it. try to be nicer and help out some more!
For one- you don't need to take points off if someone does not have a stapler!! Not the end of the world.
u were good at the beggining of the year but now ur mean! u also pick on most of the guys! they havent fully matured yet:-) you cant expect them to be perfect!
Good teaching, but hard. Makes you work and makes you learn. (*gasp*)
You pick your favorite students and leave the rest to be yelled at and criticized! You would be a great teacher if only you were just a little nicer.
she goes overboard on the metric convertions.. they give u a paper u use in 8th grade but she's a good teacher
