She was nice to me. I do believe she wants all her students to succeed. As a class tho, she was mean. She would yell if there was a little whisper. I had double period with her & I thought it was a nightmare. But I love how she grades. Students can do test corrections and she'll add points back to the test. THe test corrections was the only reason I passed! Her essays/assignments are easy. She makes you do outlines almost everyday but that's only bc she wants to prepare you for the regents.

She is a pain. She tries to be nice, kinda, but she can't. She has done many unfair things like literally collect only half of the class's essays. When we explain to her what she did wrong it's like it goes from one ear and out the other. She is not like other teachers since they can understand what we're saying. Many people dislike her and think she's unfair. Do not recommend.

Really stubborn. Does not know her material. When she goes over "her" power points it's like the first time shes heard of it and reads word for word from the board. Gives us so much notes and does not explain anything. Picks on students and gives students hard a hard time. Transfer out when u have the chance before its too late. no problem

Ms. Coffey seemed like a promising teacher the first day. It is through the first few months that you begin to see she has negative teacher qualities. Thankfully, it is easy to succeed in her class. Succeeding intellectually is a whole different story though;She is very lazy, she spins a wheel to decide the grades for all I know, underlining words that have no connection. She uses PowerPoints that typically date back to 2009 and grunts when she gets criticism and dismisses opinions.DONT RECOMND

She may not be the best global teacher but she was nice. If you are respectful towards her, do well, and listen, she will treat you the same. Keep on doing your work, get good grades, and global will be just fine.

She is a nice woman somehwere inside, definitely dont get on her bad side. Not a good teacher at all, she doesnt know how to teach on what's going to be on the tests. The trick to be on her good side is to help her out when your free sometimes. She'll love you. Expect to teach yourself.

Honestly, Ms. Coffey is the worst teacher I ever had. Her class is so boring. She has an arguement with at least one person everyday she doesnt teach. She hands out handouts and does not teach.

Ms. Coffey is a great teacher. When I came here to Bayside from my old school in Massachusetts she made me feel so welcomed and appreciated which was something that I greatly needed in my life at that particular time. She has helped me so much and has given me a good solid background in U.S. History which is hard to come by this day in age. Thank you Ms. Coffey.

HAHAH these ratings brings back memories. I grad. in June and I had her first term freshman year. She wasnt bad AT ALL.she was so sweet omg.and then..after like 2 months, BAM! She changed and became the Coffey many of us have come to know today. Im not sure what happened. lolz I remember covering my laughter with my hand ALL THE TIME because whenever no one knew the answer shed just stand there forever. and one time,no one raised their hand so she sat down and reapplied her makeup. Coffey=not one to forget.

Ms. Cofffey is one of the best teachers I have ever had. When I came into Global 3, my average was like 80. When I went into her class, it shot up to a 98. Even when I fell off, she encouraged me and my average went right back up. She always helps me even when she has nothing to gain. She is one of the few caring teachers Bayside has left.

Where can i start with mrs.coffey? you give us work that has nothing to do wiht what is on the test for example, today i had a test that had a question concerning brazil. Mrs. coffey can you please tell me when we learned about brazil. It's possible i've could've been absent then but i guess you could assume the rest of the class was absent that day also. My other question is, why do you constantly belittle people? Do you believe that by talking to us in this manner its going to help us pass?
