Mrs.Vanwie was my 8th grade teacher. I've struggled in math since 4th grade. My average in 7th grade was a 65 all year round. With Mrs.Vanwie my average went from a 65 to a 95. She gives lots of worksheets to let us practice. I now don't struggle in math because of Mrs.Vanwie

I had Mrs. Vanwie in 8th grade and I've never struggled so much in a math class. Ever since 4th grade I've bee in advanced math without a problem and now suddenly I get a terrible teacher and everything went downhill. Mrs. Vanwie is a great person but a HORRIBLE teacher. I don't have anything against accents but you can't understand anything she says because she has a thick New York accent when she says certain things. I don't reccomend Mrs. Vanwie b/c she is very confusing & her tests are hard.

She's a really nice teacher and she knows her stuff too. She is pretty strict, but strict doesn't mean bad. I guess some people don't like her b/c she doesn't tell jokes 24/7 or something. idk Well, everyone has their preferences.

Don't get me wrong she is a nice teacher, she has a kind heart and cares about teaching efficiently. However, she is very confusing and not clear, she jumps from one subject to another, and if you don't understand then you have to go to extra help which still does not help. Some people tend to zone out because they don't know what she's talking about. She is willing to help you though and she does cool activities during the holidays.

I was a 8th grade math advanced student in her class and I can very easily say that she was the worst teacher I ever had. Before this class, math used to be my favorite subject and usually got 95-100 on everything. She cannot teach at all whatsoever and i personally do not how she got her degree in teaching. I have never gotten below 75 on a test ever before and this year I even failed a couple of tests while I got high 60s to low 80's on others. I passed the regents with a 91 thanks to my effor

She does not explain the math at all, causing the majority of her students to fail their exams. Afterwards she blames common core however in reality she is probably one of the worst math teachers I have ever had. she is a nice lady though.

TEACHES TERRIBLY. INTRODUCES YOU TO A TOPIC AND THEN JUMPS TO ANOTHER EVEN IF THE MAJORITY DO NOT UNDERSTAND. TALKS TOO MUCH ABOUT HER LIFE AND TELLS UNFUNNY STORIES.

first of all she is the worst teacher ever. of course all the math teachers are bad but she's the worst. She never explains anything in class but alway's tells us to come to extra help.
