great teacher. Her lessons are clear, and her notes are great. She is very helpful, and her lessons are easy to follow. The only downside is that the tests aren't the easiest things in the world, and require a decent amount of time to study for

Yes, she's strict. Yes, she will send you out into the hallway if you disrupt class. BUT, she is undoubtedly the best Math teacher at Point Grey. Super organized, notes very clear, and is a very fair marker.
