Yeah, Miller is pretty good, he come up to ELD students during every test and ask them do you need help or anything. Anyways, Sobieck is the hardest, then Miller is the second for Alg 1. But he is good

Assigns us homework from textbook but that's like every teacher. Math is not my favourite subject but Mr. Miller is always cheerful and tries his best to help us understand math. He is very enthusiastic about math, which makes class less boring. I think he teaches well and makes us take notes on worksheets that you fill in so it's really easy. If you need help, he is always happy to help you and he knows we don't like homework and normally assigns us very little homework.

geo honors and tbh he's pretty hard, also if you ask him for help during lunch or after school he'll choose you for like every single problem to answer it , also study your notes bc that's where most test questions come from.

He doesn't really teach... like all he does is make us write notes everyday. The year consists of notes and homework and quizzes/tests. And he always gives excuses to why he doesn't have our tests graded.

great teacher! He gives clear, concise lectures. The amount of homework and tests are also pretty reasonable. The only downside is that he is a slow grader, so don't expect to see ANY test (maybe a few quizes too) grades on powerschool for a few weeks from when you take the test

Great math teacher. Lectures well and gives reasonable homework. He is very lenient on behavior and isn't afraid to crack a joke or two to keep the class awake. However, he gives you your chapter 5 test back graded during the middle of chapter 8.... He's a slow test grader so don't expect to know what you got right away. It'll take a while... But overall, a great teacher.

miller recently replaced my 5th period alg 2 class. b4, i had nairi who doesnt teach at all and alienates her students. miller is such a big improvement, he makes math so much clearer and we actually learn from him and not have to use the book ourselves.

well, his geometry honors class, for me, is pretty fun :D although he often give us the wrong page or problem number for our assignments (just like today)...and sometimes he doesn't seem to notice that he gave us too much problems, and I really don't agree that we should copy down all the questions and figures from the textbook, but I like how he teaches us, I like organized note taking...cuz it helps me study, and he's kinda a fun teacher, so I guess he's good ^_^

He's really good when he's teaching geometry and stuff, but when it comes to AP Calc, he's not that helpful and most of the times, his lectures don't really help and you have to read the chapter or ask other people.
