Patsy is a confusing teacher, who doesn’t necessarily teach but goes over power points. She constantly makes her students feel bad or dumb whenever asking a question, and her tests almost never match her notes. She is very unreasonable, and her homework is absurdly specific, using an x instead of a check mark or not spelling out an entire word on a lab will get you many points off. She always pities herself, and tries to make students feel sorry for her. She is a very unhelpful teacher over all.

She’s clearly very passionate and knowledgeable about her field but she has a highly erratic behavior with the only consistency being her complete lack of empathy and tendency to play favorites. She constantly tries to make YOU sympathetic for HER while never returning the favor, she is unneccarily strict, her class can turn from being the most painfully boring hour of your life to the most terrify to the most ubsurdly stressful. Her teaching is no better than her personality and demeanor. She e

Mrs. Vaden is obviously knowledgeable in her field, but in no way does that make her a good teacher. She is one of the most condescending, defensive people I've ever met. I've talked with other students, parents, and even staff. No one seems to think she's respectful enough or generally good enough at her job. I have learned so little in her class, it's appalling. She is not empathetic and doesn't seem to care much about being respectful to anyone.

MsVaden definitely had a lot of experience in the field and loved her subject area, but that doesn't mean she should have been a teacher. Her mood always depended on the day. She was unnecessarily strict and came to work with a bad attitude. If you made a mistake, she made you feel as though you committed a crime. Her class was not particularly difficult, just dreadful to attend. In short, if she liked us more maybe we would have liked her.

She knows what she's talking about. I'll give her that. But having had her my freshman year 1st period, my only saving grace was that I had band the next period. She made everyone feel terrible for asking a question and she had this insane laugh of a madman that she did before answering as if she shouldn't have to answer anything. Incredibly condescending. Unhelpful. And 2 years later i couldn't tell you a single thing she taught me.

Honestly, this woman has been nothing but incredibly rude and condescending to me, my child, and countless others throughout the course of this school year. She has lost my child's papers, never apologized, while also putting off several grades. Nobody understands why she's so hateful, but quite frankly, we're sick of it. She is obviously an intelligent, headstrong woman, but she has absolutely NO respect for others.

Is available to provide one on one instruction to students. Keeps assignments written on the board for several weeks so that if you are absent you know what took place in class.
