I tried very hard to get an A in this class and eventually I did but without her help. She gives these long homework assignments every day, even after a test or project. She cannot contrepol her students and lets kids play on their phones, yell, and talk to eachother during class while she is lecturing. Then, if you dont do the work she will kick you out immediately. The only way you learn in this class is from friends helping you and she makes her average a C then asks why we complain.

She is nice, but she doesn't teach. But the class is relatively easy, I copied most notes in term one and all notes for terms two through four. She doesn't actually care :)

she's a really nice person and you will do fine in her class if you do the work and have a math/science-y brain but if you don't she doesn't explain things well.

Really annoying, thinks she is right about everything and will barely listen to what a student has to say. No flexibility on the homework, you have to do the notes her way, even if its not beneficial to a student.

she's nice, but ridiculously strict about hw, and never explains difficult things in class because, according to her, she thinks we'll fall asleep...

I had her for a C1 Chem class. It seemed like a lot of the people in my class struggled but I thought she was a pretty good teacher. She is a really nice person but can be pretty strict on some aspects of the class. Overall, if u study hard and do all the HW u will do well in her class.

her class is SUPER hard for curric 1. if you zone out for a minute, you will wake up to find the board full of hectic scribbles and notes that make NO sense. getting an A requires a LOT of work. she has very high expectations

This is one hard teacher. Sometimes a young, enthusiastic teacher is refreshing, but not in this case. In all honesty, she comes off rather offense.

She's kind of cool when she wants to be. She isn't too helpful, doesn't answer questions in class, rather you see her during J Block which doesnt help either

a tough subject and the fact that she doesnt want to explain it makes the concepts harder to grasp. She makes u go j block for help even if the whole class has the same question. wont slow down for neone. Her screaming bout the squrrel was funny tho.
