She's alright, I like the fact that she drops one test grade, but she likes to toy with her friends and talks too much about her children... wish me luck for math analysis next year :(

She basically spends 45 minutes talking about her personal life and THEN gets around to teaching. If you want a good grade in that class you have to do a lot of work on your own. She also picks favor

I GET WHY PEOPLE ARE TALKING BAD ABOUT HER. SHE'S NOT THAT BAD THOUGH. HER FIRST TEST THIS YEAR WAS RIDICULOUS. BUT IF YOU REALLY FOLLOW ALONG AND TRY TO LIVE UP TO HER, YOU'LL DO FINE.

Most of her classes got horrible grades this year. She gives flimsy explanations that don't help. Transfer if you want a good grade in Algebra or Algebra II Honors

She always stood around talking about her family/her deiet/etc and never taught us anything. Then, when kids complained about not knowing how to solve a problem, she would get upset! UGHH!!!

She never really explains the problems, but rather just solve them and expect us to know it and looks at me or other people stupidly if we don't. Nice person if on good side.

Cant see how she is mean or hard. Easy A or B as long as you show up to class on time, do your homework,complete all the college projects,listen when she goes over the practice tests, and don't cheat.

She's more concerned with your general future than she is with teaching math. That's a little frustrating when you want to understand math and she's talking about how her family members succeeded.

You get a lot of homework in her class but her tests are so easy. Her practice tests are exactly the same as the real tests.

she's an okay teacher, makes lots of mistakes, talks about her daughter too much, keeps favorites, easy to pass her class if you learn the material by yourself, a very well-rounded person if you know her outside of class. =]

you must listen attentivetly in this class, because if you doze off for a second you wont understand anything unless you read the book yourself which i doubt anyone does anymore.

I really hate Mrs. Rabe. She rarely stays on the subject of math, and she just doesn't teach it well despite her 30 years of teaching.

Very hard slim chance of passing with her teaching. She should have become a physcologist instead of a mathe teacher.

always has after school help sessions available, teaches well (for me) fair grader (tries to make your grade the best she can, usually drops lowest test and/or quiz scores, and she weights the final so it will help u more than hurt u)
