she's really nice but she doesn't give back your quizzes, so it's kinda hard to determine where you are in the course unless you approach her. she also gives a lot of homework, which she rarely checks.

If you get her, switch out. You could be doing really good but you'll never know cause she never gives any marks back... so many complaints were sent to her by parents but she never replied to them because she's "so busy". If you are stuck with her, I'm so so sorry.

If you're not good at math, she's perfect for you. If you're already really good at math, then it's a little trickier and you may find yourself getting very distracted.

Ms. Asselstine was the best teacher I have ever had for math. She is so nice and sweet, you never get bored and knows how to keep students on track. She is very intelligent and knows her stuff!

Asselstine was a very nice person. She only snapped once despite the math class being super loud every day. The problem lies within her own effort into the teaching. She never makes handouts, only teaches directly from the textbook (literally chapter by chapter; some test questions are copy/paste from textbook even), and marks VERY slow. I'm talking multi-month slow for a single unit test. You can go up and ask her about what you don't understand, and she will make it very easy to get, though.

She's amazing as a person, but not so much as a teacher. Protip- don't ever expect any assignments or tests back. We have great discussions, but some of them aren't related to the topic at hand. I had her for stats, and as I compared her "smartboard notes" with the textbook, I discovered that she had blatantly copied the textbook onto the board, and then the students would copy down the board. I'm pretty sure that with skipping class everyday but reading the textbook, I would still get over 90

She's a very knowledgeable teacher who can clearly explain concepts to the class. I had her for AP stats. She did not go over several concepts with us in class, and sent us notes on the day before the AP exam. She handed back two out of five tests and no assignments. I know as the department head, she is definitely very busy, however she needs to care for this class a lot more. She's very good at teaching though, just some aspects need a lot of improvement.

She never hands things back or hands then back right before report cards. You'll never know where you stand in her class. She's only nice to you if she likes you.

Probably one of the worst math teachers in the school: simply reads notes to you, doesnt really offer clear explanations. Worst of all, she doesn't hand back tests and most likely doesn't mark them. Y

She's okay. She cares. Just often seems stressed. And then sometimes a little too condascending, which can be very annoying. Don't know if she realizes that.

Least helpful teacher I've ever had, she does just make up marks, and really I don't think she marks anything which is why I never got my tests back in that class

the head of a math dept that does not mark or return tests and assignments; students who complain too much get lower marks; it's hard to know how final marks are determined

Great person, a bit slow on the marking - but she's always busy with school or sport things. Good teacher, will take the time to help you understand.

She's a really nice person and she really tries to teach, but it's hard to learn and improve work when we never get ANY tests back all year. She doesn't even mark them.
