Honestly, DaCosta is the best math teacher you can get. She's extremely helpful and funny and clear. If you have a question, she will answer it without a doubt. Barely EVER makes mistakes on tests (I've never seen it happen). She prepares you well for every test and gives you appropriate homework. I have never learnt as much as I have in DaCosta's class. I would 1000% take her again as a teacher (even if it weren't math!). LOVE HER.

Best math teacher I've ever had. I'm not a huge fan of math but she makes it interesting and will make sure that you fully understand concepts. She's intimidating at first, but you'll eventually notice that she's a very nice person and she's actually pretty funny. She's very good at her job.

Amazing teacher! Teaches everything in a very concise and understandable manner. As long as you do the homework, you'll do well in her classes. She can seem a bit scary but is extremely approachable when you go to her for questions. She is strict on coming to class late and using your phone (as in neither are acceptable). I really wish she taught grade 11 or 12 math. Everyone who's had her as a teacher leave with a lot of respect for her.

One of the best math teachers at FX. Takes her job seriously, brilliant teaching, and can control her students! She may seem intimidating at first, but she loves students that engage themselves and ask questions. She's always there to help, and will recognize your effort.

She's an amazing teacher. Explains everything clearly and concisely, gives you plenty of time for homework in class, and always has answers to every question. She puts up answers to test and quizzes so you can check them and find out what you did wrong. Really wants her students to succeed. She can be strict, don't come late or forget assignments.
