"She's bad because she failed me."
Stop with that mentality. If you take the time and effort to keep up with her classes, you'll come out with soaring marks. Unfortunately, many seem to think that they should be allowed to pass school with minimal effort. That being said, Mrs. Fortney is partially at fault in this matter as well. She does not get to know her students well enough to cater her teaching to their character.

Definitely not as horrible as kids would gossip about. I would not recommend her as I didn't find her very useful when I went in for extra help. It seems like she marks you way to hard for grade 9 math. Though I highly appreciate the extra help. Personally, I find her very intimating and looks to find the flaws in you and doesn't accept your successes. Overall, I think she needs to cool down then she might actually be a good teacher.

The majority of negative reviews here are from her immature grade 9 classes. Fortney was a great teacher when I was in her class a couple years years ago. Everyone I knew took grade 9 academic math coming from grade 8. Fortney basically divided the college math kids from the university math kids.

i dont want to disklike her, but i have to. All she does is show you a power point the entire period, and then she gives you 5 pages of homework...which you dont know how to do because its so hard to pay attention. After that, she gives you the hardest test of your life and expects you to get a 90% on it (cuz you know, were all math geniuses). she doesnt teach you anything and then she fails you. Youre pretty much left to teach yourself.

I dont know what you guys are talking about Ms Fortney is a excellent teacher. OFC your going to fail if you dont do your work on study so dont blame her for not babying you like your 6th grade teacher. Only 2 things I would say would be if you are reading this is PLEASE go a little slower during your lessons so people have time to copy the notes and pay attention at th e same time and if your late but in class she marks you absent :/ Gj ms fortney. (First semester student)

I don't know what you people are talking about. Are you in high school or are you coming to a party? It's high school and no one is telling you to fail you lazy little bastards, put some work into it and ask for help and you'll finish her course with a good mark. I'm not saying that she's an easy teacher but some people are honestly over exaggerating it over here. TBH Fortney failed me cause I was like you little slackers but once you get to know her and respect her, she can teach you great math

She knows what she is teaching but seems to enjoy the failure of her students more than their success and is very rude to them. She is not helpful at all and is very intimidating.

Ms Fortney is a super strict teacher who enjoys the math misfortunes of her students. She knows her math (I had her for summer school), but is very PICKY AND CRUEL about it. Just stay away.

The worst teacher I've had without a doubt. Classes mostly consist of reading the textbook even when u don't understand something; will not teach(answers ? with ?). Also dislikes many students openly.

Horrid teaching skills. If you asked for help, she'd tell you to look it up in the text book. Teachers are there to help you learn. She might as well just leave the class-I could teach myself.

Not happy with her teaching methods, when my son asked for help, he didnt get it, so he was left behind like many other students in her class. Mrs. Fortney needs to slow down and help other students.

If you do your homework regularly you won't have a problem. She doesn't give you answers, but she'll help you find them. Lunch time help worked for me.

Constructive criticism:Your teaching method of asking so many questions makes it more difficult. Sometimes, a simple answer helps us more than exploring issues.
