Wow- someone who sings math— she’s awesome — structure— caring— but firm— and oh so knowledgeable— what a blessing for teens to learn math from ! Positive role model— so easy to talk to and easy to dialogue with- keeps parents informed on progress— and pushes kids to excellence...
Sets you up for the real world without false expectations but is also very motivating and helpful whenever you need it!
A former student here now in third year university,
Mrs. Gertzos is a rare teacher in that she cares both about what she teaches and who she teaches it to. Personally she was wasted on me as I brushed off the summary booklets as a waste of time and unnecessary homework, however, in retrospect I wish I took her class and her advice more seriously. The ethic she invokes in her students which is required to get a good grade in her class prepared me for University well and I recommend her highly.
Such a sweet lady! She is a bundle of joy. She is so caring and really gets to know her students which is great. I loved her snack days and Friday Challenges. The content is difficult, but it will prepare you for future endeavors in math. Sometimes talks a bit fast so it can be difficult to take in information. Lori is also very organized and the summary booklets and unit overview checklist helped me study and stay organized. I now make summaries for other classes too.
Very organized. Have used my summary booklets countless times for reference in university. Thanks for the solid preparation.
I learned to work hard every day, use my notes and text as resources and to ask questions. I learned to persevere and try but If I was still stuck. she would always be sure to guide me in the right direction. I appreciate the time she always had for us - she makes sure she is available at all times to help her students be successful. Thank you for preparing me well for future math courses.
She's so great, I can't even explain how much I lover her, we are best friends. She loves all of her students so much, she's so energetic and enthusiastic
very sweet and cares about every single one of her students and wants the best for them!
math isn't just math in her class - it's art, writing and comics!
she's just awesome at what she does, and is always willing to help you succeed!
She is so amazing, She helped me out so much in math and I wasn't afraid to ask her question!, Man I wish I had her every year:)
Does everything she can to help you understand. Just ask; she's there to help you succeed. Thank you Mrs. Gertzos.
Ms. Gertzos is one of the most generous, caring teachers I have ever had. She makes math make sense, and truly cares about her students.
Kind of elementary style of teaching. She was very approachable and friendly, but didn't bring a whole lot of interest to math.
