Mrs. Ryan is an awesome teacher. She makes even Honors level math easy to understand in a clear, consise manner. She can be a little short-tempered at times, but overall she's awesome. Better than Grigas.

She's an awesome math techer and she makes it easy to get good grades. It's the students fault they fail because they throw away the opportunity.

Very distraught over her low rating, as she told us in my 3H class. I don't see how anyone couldn't find her to be an excellent teacher.

I had her for 3A math, she was VERY LOUD, not the greatest teacher either. I could hear her from down the hall when I was in Monahan's BC calc class.

She always has a lesson prepared which is good, but it is impossible to get an A on anything so, why try?
