Not easy to goof around in her class but you learn ALOT
She is there to teach - focuses on learning.
As a person, Tangen drove me up the wall. She doesn't have good people-skills.
However, as a teacher, she was able to explain math in a way which made sense that no other teacher in high school or college has been able to do since.
She's not nearly as mean as people make out. There's definitely some stigma regarding her, so people often intentionally push her buttons. Great for learning and rarely a day with homework.
she's very strict. LOL once our class stole the red pens. good times... but she's a good teacher, i'll give her that.
Do your work, don't talk, use her red pens- and don't use your pencil when she hands them out!
She may be a very strict and overbearing teacher, but she does her job, and she does it well. She actually teaches what she is supposed to, unlike many of the other teachers in the math department.
yeh she is strict but at least she has control over the class... you actually learn a lot...value it while u can cuz the rest of the math teachers are not very good at all
mv's hardest teacher. she's smart, and rules over the classroom with an iron fist. chooses good subs. but the class is silent and the atmosphere is grim.
Very strict teacher but after having a new teacher who doesn't teach the stuff well, she doesn't look too bad. Just be sure to do your work.
Ew... just not nice at all... I hate how she teaches.
She's a good teacher and you'll really learn the material from her. Do your work and you'll do fine--just dont be mean to her, you'll regret it.
Ms. Tangen acts very annoyed if I ever have a question or have to stay after class. Warning to all Freshmen: Don't look her in the eyes or she'll bite you.
all of those who rated with a smily face need to wake up in her class
She scares me. students don't even want to ask to go to the bathroom when she's teaching. You learn a lot, though.
Her class is the modern definition of a teacher having the mental advantage over her students. Her attitude makes no one even dare to utter a peep.
people should realize that school is not jail, but a place to which you go to learn-not talk. ms tangen commands respect, and deserves it. she's a good teacher.
Drop the class immediately if her name is on your list
Not one of best teacher at MV, she is really unclear and yells at people for doing nothing.
Honestly I havn't met one person who likes her yet. She yells at the class for talking everyday and sometimes no ones talking when she does.The room is tense.
i don't think ive ever had a teacher yell at her class as much as Tangen does.
Honestly, a lot of people really don't like her. A lot of people make fun of her--not nice.I've found her to be very effective--I really learned a lot from her.
She's not a horrible teacher... she's just not a great person
