Grade 9 Math with Beagan was a like a right of passage for grade nines; but it's one you should avoid. If you posted good reviews, it's likely that you did well enough in her class (re - the few 90%ers) to garner her attention/were already good at the material. She bullied many of her students, ignored the individuals that had a hard time understanding the material and was completely ineffectual in her teaching methods. She might be good at math, but she's not a good math teacher.
Average teacher. I heard her brother is big on "toys" like whips, leather, handcuffs, etc. Must run in the family
Ms. Beagan is the most fantastic math teacher anyone could ask for. She not only managed to engage the enthusiastic students in her classes, but also the kids who were not so interested in math. I remember that there were a number of kids who walked in her class at the beginning of the semester who hated anything to do with math. Those same kids ended their semester with her absolutely loving it. Her teaching methods were great and her antics always made classes interesting. Thanks, Ms. Beagan!
she is crazy to be honest i did understand why she talked to her self and a teddy bear she also is to smart to teach
She only did examples. Half of the time she just gave us textbook work.
Ms. Beagan is probably the greatest math teacher EVER! She explains stuff to you and is quite undeserving of all the bad ratings - honestly, she makes math very easy, just be willing to learn!
I enjoy her teaching method, well planned lessons and she knows her stuff. Jokes may not always be great but at least she tries to connect with the students :p. Overall, excellent.
she makes the class very interesting. shes a good teacher from my experience
People give her a bad rating because they think she is too tough; she is only 'tough' because she is preparing you for college/university courses. You can complain all you want about her, but she is just trying to make your life much easier later on. Thank you for being a great teacher. -Jordan
I love this lady!!! She would be a great domanatrix with 'manipulatives'!! Just thinking about alegbra tiles has me 'excited'.
Great at teaching you if you're willing to learn it. VERY helpful however .
Takes too long to return test results, spends too much time being what she thinks is "funny"
she likes to sing the Indiana Jones theme song at random times
takes really simple things and twists them until even people who used to understand them get confused. she doesn't like to help people, and she spazzes a lot, but if you stay on her good side, she's like a one woman show.
She cares more about riding her horses than her students and most of her explanations dont make sense.She pretty much sucks, if you have her for a grade 12 class switch.
Well My average in Elementary school was 90% now it's 69% because she dosen't know how to use a texbook or buy one(we don't have any texbooks)!
what i found was that she would focus all her attention on the people who usually dont care about there work which would be like 3 people and then she would wonder why the other people were failing.
so smart, excellent teacher. you just have to accept her ways.
The greatest math teacher i ever had. Hard but explains everything so well...get her off topic on her horses, or her vacuum to make the class more interesting and she will relate it back to calculus
Ms. Beagan is a very odd person. And not in a good kind of way. She has her favourites and is also very tough as a teacher.As a teacher, I thought she was good
i disliked her teacher styles very much. She never helped the people that weren't her favorites, she was very unclear with everything, but also she gives a second chance sometimes
Incredibly unhelpful, even if you have a high mark (the only time she'll try and help).
My only concern is how she asks everybody to raise their hand if they understand and if not everybody raises their hand, she continues with the lesson anywy
very unapproachable if you're struggling with the material, but probably the best teacher to have if you're going on to University.
If you don't have a 90% or higher, she refuses to give you the time of day.
shes gonna make sure you know your math, and you'll like her for that
