She is not helpful at all, and is very lazy. I am struggling and she never acknowledges the fact that any of us could use some help. She can be nice but she certainly can get really mean. Sometimes she doesn't control her temper and makes mean jokes

Ms.B is a good math teacher when she is in a good mood. When she is sour though, she gets really angry easily. Also the answer keys for worksheets have many mistakes. Test marks are deducted for the tiniest things. Other than that, Ms.B is ok.

Very Bipolar. Good teacher when she's in a good mood, but tends to bring what ever is bothering her into the class. Not worth putting up with her bad side. Had a horrible experience with her, and made music just another subject.

She gets the job done. ALWAYS. Weather you a are a star band student or one who is struggling she will make sure when you leave Junior High, you are a excellent band player. The occasional mood swings are present but she pretty easy going. As for math, she teaches well. Students understand the topic well. Oh and how could I forget what she says before every test: Good luck, enjoy life and drink coke!

This year I was in grade 7, so just starting junior high, and Ms B was an AWESOME band teacher! Best one I've ever had! She is nice, funny, but could b a little strict at times, but only to the students that were being annoying and stupid. She's awesome and I'm so happy I might have her for Math AND Band next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D
Luv ya Ms B!!!!!

You make me change my fav. from pepsi to coke :D. The FUNNEST and most TALENTED teacher I have ever ENJOYED class with. Yes people she get stressed, don't we all? Think about the 300 some students she has to handle, we all take band cause we love her. She's like superwoman, because I'm sure no one else i know can handle this kind of pressure and even grade 9s are a lot to handle (I know Cause I am). But she still save the day by making everything fun and musical. Very helpful and kind and adoring(-able)~

This fantastic woman made me love coming to school just so I could attend her class. She was exremely enthusiastic and was really good at all the instruments. I am now graduating high school and plan on mastering in music performance, and this lovely lady made it all happen when she took my tuba away and suggested I try the flute instead. best decision I ever made.

She is is best music teacher ever. Especially if you are somewhat good at what you do. I have no idea why people would give her ones, be it out of hate or out of jealousy it is extremely unfair. You have no idea how hard she works to please her students. We can conclude that she is the best music teacher ever. We hope she wins the elkhorn award one year,
