Honestly this woman is a walking textbook, but what else do you expect after teaching for so long. All you have to do to get on her favourites list is shut up, listen, bring your textbook, and be on time. Has an odd humor to her, but you get used to it.

Easily the best teacher at MDHS. Very knowledgeable, explains material well and the answers to her tests are literally the notes you have in your notebook. She's a lot cooler and funnier than people think. If you're actually a student that pays attention in class and does their work, you'll love her. Taking law was the best decision I made in high school. Definitely recommend you take law as it's not that difficult to get a good grade. Honestly my favourite

Let's get one thing straight. If you're going to be a student in her class that isn't willing to do any work and just slack off, you're not going to like this teacher. That being said, if you're a student that is engaged and willing to learn, Ms.Zajdner is the most knowledgeable and best teachers. She explains material very well and is a lot more funny than people think. She gives out tests for each chapter that come straight from the notes so it's really easy to do well. Take Law.

Great teacher! Explains material well and actually cares about the students. Her tests are generally easy as she gives frequent ones. She has tests at the end of each chapter so the material doesn't build up. Overall, Law is a fun class and you should take it!

I LOVE her in law. I've never had her for any other subject, but have heard she doesn't like teaching business, which is why she's not the best for business probably. She's a very fair teacher though, and if you listen and do your work, you'll do really well.

She should spend more time on teaching the lessons then talking about her kids and picking on kids. Also needs to find a way to teach students other than writing tons of notes on the board trying to use the most complicated words she can think of to make herself look smarter. She has mood swings can go from being the nice to rude in a flash. If u don't like kids don't be a teacher!

I would say Ms. Zajdner is a pretty good teacher. Make sure you don't anger her, for she will pile on the homework. For the most part, business is a lot of note taking, but there are the occasional discussion afterwards. It depends on the class dynamics.
