Honestly she is kind of snarky and if you get on her bad side she makes it clear that she DOES NOT want you to succeed in any way, shape, or form. If you're quiet, keep to yourself, and pay attention you won't do too bad. She is super confusing and if a student on her "bad side" asks a question she basically refuses to elaborate. She'll spew out some garbage like "well you should've been taking notes" or "its not my fault you weren't paying attention" regardless if that's true or not.

She is a nice person but terrible teacher. If you get her as a teacher, switch out immediately.

I was apprehensive to have Mrs.Mahoney with all the horror stories I heard, but I was determined to make my own unbias judgment of her. She was fair in her grading and nice to the class. She always asked us if we understood before moving on to a new concept and joked every once in a while to lighten the mood. I think she made a HUGE effort to restrain herself and cater to the problems address here this year (2015) and for that she deserves credit.

don't get me wrong, mrs mahoney is a nice person and means well. however, when it comes to teaching she is very brief and doesn't do a good job explaining. most of the time, she expects u to know everything prior to her classwhen you ask a question, she is usually confused on how to answer and often gets irritated when students ask questions but hey isn't that what teachers are for? her tests sometimes include things that were mentioned in class once or briefly talked about on the homework.

She gets so annoyed if someone asks a question and is confusing a lot of the time so you have to figure some things out on your own.

Personally I liked Mrs. Mahoney. She was very friendly and nice to me and I always felt bad for her when some students disrespected her. If she was sarcastic or mean it was bc of the student's behavior. Not the best teacher, but nearly not the worst.

Not a great teacher by any means but a sweet lady outside of class and I just felt that needed to be said. She's not a good teacher but she's a good person.

Mrs mahoney ruined my freshman year . She is not a good teacher she doesn't teach. She often makes jokes and expects people to laugh but no one does. I have been a good student in math until she came into my life. If you get her switch out .

Ms. Mahoney...
She can possibly be one of THE worst teachers i have ever had. She takes too long on easy sections, but speeds up on hard sections. i passed with an A average, but my fellow peers, not so much. She barely teaches, and when you ask for extra help for homework she kinda gives you attitude and tells you fine. one time, my friend wanted extra help for the final and she said no. Don't get me started about her yelling. if you are good at math and dont study, like me, expect 70-87%

tests are mostly trick questions, some questions do not even relate to the notes. she just makes you copy notes from the white board. she says jokes that no one besides her thinks is funny. she counts down the days of school until summer. try to get another teacher.

She was so bad, I requested not to have her next year.If I get a 'B' in her class, Ms. Mahoney will have officially ruined my future. She was my least favorite teacher of my entire life. She's sarcastic and mean, finding herself SO funny when no one else is laughing. Telling jokes instead of teaching.She GOT MAD when someone asked her question and she just puts notes on the board; guess she doesn't believe in actually TEACHING the material(taught myself everything). She is the worst teacher EVER

Ms. Mahoney is the worst teacher I have ever had. She cannot teach. She gets mad when you ask questions, and gives tests on problems we were never taught how to do often, the majority of the class will not understand, but she still gives the test the next day.Doesn't seem to actually like children or teaching. I'm a straight A student, with almost all 100 averages yet I've never struggled more. She's unfair, unpleasant, and should not be teaching. If you get her, switch out. You have been warned

Ms. Mahoney is unclear when she teaches and she will spend about 3-4 days on a topic that most of the class find easy and then speeds through things that are incredibly confusing in 1 class period. She tends to be quick tempered and seems like she does not enjoy teaching. I usually go home and learn the information by myself.

her classes tend to be boring, but she's nice, will answer your questions, and doesn't give too much homework. she usually has us take notes and then we do worksheets so i usually have to teach myself the material on my own.
