Schnute is the most narrow minded teacher at WCI and probably in the world. She thinks there is only one way of doing things and discourages students from taking their own path. She will definitely not give you the grade you deserve and takes away any pleasure you once had for math. Her marking is pathetic and if she doesn't like a student, she will bully them in a loud voice so that the whole class can hear. Not sure why she's a teacher because she is everything a teacher shouldn't be.

Mrs. Schnute Klassen is THE wonrst teacher I have ever had in my entire schooling career. I have felt personally bullied by her since day 2 of classes. She embarrasses me in class and degrades me by making me look stupid, I am immensely surprised nobody has taken her to the board and I am surprised she is still a teacher. I am deeply disappointed the school board and WCI would let a woman like this teach in their school and also decide people's marks needed for university.

Mrs. SK is an excellent teacher! She makes hand outs and explains things well. She is harder than most teachers, but it's only because she cares. She wants her students to not only get the marks for university, but to have the skills needed to be successful in university. I think she would also make a great university prof.

Student reviews are mild, IMHO, this woman is in education so she can be a bully. If you have a meeting and challenge her at all, your child will suffer. Parents, move your kid before this woman costs them their university acceptance. There are several much better math teachers in WCI. Too bad she can't be fired.

A rude bully, puts students in a seating plan according to their marks, points out and humiliates students based on their test score. Not a good math teacher. No compassion for students who struggle with test anxiety. Grade 12 students are relying on these marks for University.

To paraphrase Kanye West, "Schnute klassen doesnt care about black people." She was often rude to our african canadian students near the sem's end and they got in more trouble than their non ethnic counterparts for the same stuff.

She is a pathological liar, that gives students false hope before she fails them. She makes everything way more difficult and confusing then it needs to be, and takes off tons of marks for forgetting capitals. She also takes of marks for things like not putting answer in standard form, even tho it did not state it on a test. She targets students and bullies them in front of the whole class. Not only is she rude in the classroom, but she lacks respect and manners is weight room!

"I Paid for my own education" "My son is the best athlete you'll ever meet" "My husband is such a manly man man hunter" "Do your homework or no math dollars" These are all things you may hear coming from Schnute's math class. I actually thought math was a good subject until she made me feel like absolute garbage by taking away ANY possible marks she could. If I saw her picture on Tinder, I'd swipe left faster than you can say "PARABOLA"

This lady is evil she is satan. She is an adult bully. She will humiliate students with low grades and ESL or foreign students in front of the whole class. She is a ridiculous marker and if she doesn't like you she will find any way to take marks off. She is incredibly cocky, rude and mean. I had never disliked a teacher until I met her. She made my grades drop from 90s to 60s and now that I don't have her anymore I'm back up to 90s. She's just honestly a horrible teacher.

Schnute-Klaassen is absolutely the most infuriating teacher I have ever had. She does not seem to understand that she has to earn our respect, and that she could not be further from doing so. She frequently punishes people for being 1-2 minutes late for class, she punishes ESL (english-as-a-second-language) students for not knowing english, she humiliates people for getting low marks. The one thing that she does well is makes every concept painfully simple. But this does not stop me from hating.

She may think she is the smartest math teacher at WCI but she certainly isn't. One of the most arrogant, selfish, ignorant, and impractical teacher at WCI. Told me to "screw off" in the middle of the class for stating an error and rebuking her incorrect explanation. She insults students with low marks in front of the class handing out tests according to highest to lowest, saying out the scores in front of the entire class. She doesn't care about her students saying sexual jokes targeting them.

I found Schnute to be the most infuriating marker I have witnessed in high school. I could answer a question correctly, and still get 4/6 due to semantics. "oh that sketch in the margin? you didn't label the axises", "The variable looked like a zero, so I took a mark off". I found it very easy to get an 85%+ in the course, but in order to achieve more than that, you need to be a stickler for form. She teaches you well, just prepare to rip your hair out when you get tests back losing 20% on form.

Extremely passive aggressive, rude, but says everything with a smile so she appears nice. Unaware of how terrible she often makes students feel. Hands out tests in order of top three students.
There is no point in even trying to discuss, reason or understand her marking style, often used the phrase "oh but it's just one mark I took off".
YES, she may be extremely well organised, with her lessons and marking, that's great. But there is so much more to teaching than that.

Very smart, however, she does not know how to teach or clarify. She picks favourites and so your life may or may not be a living nightmare with her. Chances are you will dislike her class very much. She needs to realize that she is putting students's futures at stake. I generally use to achieve mid 80's-90's in math, and still do, but I left her course with a 64. Unacceptable.

She's okay, she's actually a good teacher, like she helps me to understand the subject matter, but she is slightly annoying. You can really tell which students she hates, sometimes you ask a question and she keeps interrupting and won't let you speak!

Over uses the phrase "Coincidence? I think not.". If you're late by even a fraction of a second, even if you have a legitimate reason, she will most likely keep you outside, and make you miss the lesson and any notes. And if you're late any more than once, she WILL send you straight to your VP. Nevertheless, she knows what she is usually talking about during lessons, and her lessons make a good amount of sense.
