she teaches everything from the textbook but her tests are really hard if you don't study well enough. she puts answers up to the homework daily but her class is mostly self taught. shes nice, fun and laid back for sureee. never troubled me to do my homework or assignments or come on time but i still passed her class easy.

Teaching style is great. Lessons are straight to the point and never bore you. Willing to explain anything if you ask. Wish she had taken a bit more material from outside the textbook, but overall fantastic and engaging teacher!

Ms. Havaris is fantastic...anyone that says anything bad is just not a good student...she offers help everyday at lunch, you just go find her in math office...I have her for grade 11 math and hope I get her again in grade 12. Everyone I know that has had her loves her.

She is unable to answer the questions she provides for homework. She provides us with concepts and questions we never covered on the texts and the final exam. She never offered extra help. Havaris was actually taught how to do one of the lessons by a student during the lesson. Her lessons flew by and at the end I had no recollection of what I've "learned". I do not understand why her career is teaching. On the bright side, she's nice. That being said, I"m glad to be out of her class.

she teaches only like 10 minutes everyday, and rarely takes up difficult homework questions, all she says is that it won't be on the test. THe tests are easy but u r not gonna learn any advanced stuffs in her class.

really cool teacher! sometimes her way of explaining things aren't the greatest but she's very understanding and always willing to help. a little too lenient and doesn't motivate you to work hard but she bumps up marks!

To8/23/05:she occasionally can't answer a question, but what I experienced was it would have been a question that was not assigned and would think about it and get back to me

Nice lady... unfortunatly nice isn't the only thing you look for in a teacher. She spelled "eraser" wrong the first day of school... things went downhill from there. Can't teach.

let's say, to prove A=B. This math teacher will say: if A=B (students ask why), then assume A=B (students ask why), finally let A=B (all students faint) Not j/k

I think she can't teach- quit sitting down on your desk and doing your own thing. She needs to put on a smile. She needs to relate to the students.
