Student Feedback

I really liked the review games. The competition helped make it more fun and easier to review for the tests.

I always enjoy class. Our teacher makes class fun and interesting while also being understanding of the students. I also enjoy being able to see my other classmates, it makes the class feel a bit more lively.

Being in a class with a teacher made me want to impress her and do well. She does a great job of keeping students on track and yet moving along the information.
