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.

TERRIBLE TEACHER..especially first hour. She screams at the class everyday, singles people out, has made people cry, wont let you go to the bathroom, and repeats mindless things like 7 times(no joke)

I don't think she should be a teacher. She doesn't seem like she likes teaching, and usually when a teacher isn't happy, they take it out on their kids, and I think that's exactly what she does. Not s

I think she's a great teacher, when it comes to teaching. If people pay attention and enter work on time then she would be a little more confortable teaching and less of a control freak. She could be

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.

Tangen is definately not one of my favorite teachers. I feel like she has some control issues, and those red pens are disgusting... so glad i don't have her anymore.

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.

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.

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.

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.
