Ms. Hobbie is brilliant! She is so intelligent, so passionate about her subject and really wants to make it fun! Her tests are hard though. She grades very fairly, but her accelerated course tests are soon hard and long! So are her take-homes, which also tend to be puzzle-like. But, she is also very helpful and if you go to her will spend endless time with you and guide you ( and basically give you the path to soling the puzzle!) Much respect to her

classes you dont learn anything and then on tests the material you should be learning is like Arabic when you are illiterate.

She's absolutely no help at all... She grades REALLY harshly and her tests are WAY too long -- every time, every person in the class was forced to stay late, it was ridiculous.

Had her for about half a term when my teacher left. Above average teaching-wise, but then again, lots of teachers at exeter are. Coming from Mischke was a let down. Grades harshly.

She grades the accel. classes harshly-- her difficulty of her tests are nowhere near homework problems. She basically leaves you to understand concepts on your own.

She's cool. Kinda bland though. Like eating cheese pizza from Villa Pizza in the mall. It's pizza, but it doesn't really taste like anything at all.

If you work hard in her class, you will do well, but if not and if you do not seek help, it could get harsh...

Really cool, but I feel like she would be more appreciated by her students if she were to teach in a middle school.

She's one of the nicest teachers I've ever had, but she grades the accelerated section very hashly. Regular chem is fine

She wrote my recs; I got into college. That and she's a good conversation outside of chemistry also.
