Mrs Manwell doesn't really teach much...her course lacks structure and there is never a clear schedule. She also doesn't cover topics fully in one day, then she gives worksheets due in 2 weeks, and then a test. She doesnt do much with the curricculum
Worst teacher ever. She should retire or fall down the stairs.
Actuallyrealy nice funny teacher.She sometimes doesntt get around teaching us things before she gives a test on the.i never want to ask her where stuff is in the lab(for research bio)because she gets easilyannoyed.Good if you already understand bio
I hate her from the deepest darkest pits of my heart.
She's a really nice person but she can't really teach. It's kind of confusing. If you have her first, she lets you get breakfast on break.
Her tests are really hard and she doesnt know how to teach well. I think the main reason is because she teaches Research
She is a good person. Despite what people say about her, she can be funny and kind. The problem is she is a terrible, confusing teacher. Her tests are so so hard. She doesn't help at all. But I disagree with all the posts about her being mean.
i hate her. worst possible teacher. her tests are hard and she doesnt even care about her students.
she's a good teacher as long as you study from the txtbook
there is absolutely nothing nice to say about her, she isn't nice, pleasant to talk to, or a good teacher, she gives a lot of work, is NOT helpful, NOT clear and very forceful. I would recommend professional help. Her tests are really hard and i know the other teachers are hard to for Freshmen biology but if u get her, definitely transfer out as fast as possible, there is no one worse than her
possibly the worst teacher i ever had. she gives out the hardest tests and her voice is so low (in volume). she also has a bad attitude. i definitely do not miss her.
In my opinion, worst bio teacher ever. Had her last term. Horrible teacher, you don't learn anything from her. Her tests are hard considering you didn't learn anything. Hated her in general.
She is definitely one of the worst teachers I've ever had. She never teaches in class and she expects us to get good grades anyways. She loses her temper so easily and can often be found yelling at a student. She expects us to know so much on stuff she hasn't covered at all. In our own research, she expects us to know everything that's going on even though we haven't learned about what to do. Worst teacher everr.
First of all, she needs to change her attitude. She acts like the crankiest person ever, and snaps at random students. Also, yeah I get it. She may be knowledgable, but what's the point if she can't teach properly to her students? She also has favorites (usually the popular kid who participates a lot, meh.) and doesn't actually interact with her students. And she will hate you if you get bad grades on her test. Don't bother trying to talk to her if you get bad grades, she won't understand.
Ask students from Fall '11 (like me) about the chicken and cornflakes question and you'll see what kind of teacher she is.
i sat in the back, and her voice is rlly mumbly, so i frequently drifted off. she's rlly nice tho, and knows what she's saying, and sometimes we had little class experiments. she started using google docs and thats where we submit hw, so u basically can just bs the hw. she does give a lot of work (GRRR LAB REPORTS) and her tests are HARD but study off the txtbk and u should be ok
She knows her stuff, but she can't teach it. Very irritable, and test are tough.
She can seem a little stuffy or dry, but she's really knowledgeable. Students who know what they're doing are well-off, those who just bumble around are not going to have a good time.
A very good teacher and clearly loves biology However you have to be very very smart She can seem mean at times but thats because shes old and sick of having to deal with stupid kids (i would be to) B
A TON of work, but she prepares you well for the final. She may seem a little mean, but she really isn't. She expects class participation!
Her tests are a little harder than other bio teachers and her class dull at times, but she can definitely teach. Her molecular bio class is really interesting.
she's not the best teacher in the world. she yells for no reason even well im trying my best. i didnt like her
Sometimes vague about when certain assignments are due... Could be more straight to the point in class though!
People tend to not pay attention in class. If you have any interest in biology, Manwell's a great teacher, you'll learn a lot and do well on finals/regents/bio sat.
lab reports and tests are pretty killer. do well in her class if you do the homework and really pay attention to her slideshows. not the nicest, but easily one of the more knowledgeable bio teachers!
She's a good teacher. I have her, and she gives out extra credit oppurtunities for each test. Great teacher. Dont be afraid to ask for help.
a good way to prepare 4 a manwell test is to read the chapter over 2 or 3 times, when i read it once i get a 80ish when i read it twice i get like 90ish
The class is hard, but I feel like I understand it thanks to her. Can be strict but isn't mean. Prepare to wash your hands a lot.
shes really nice to me when i ask a question. she can answer almost everything,great memory for science stuff, but for everything else (mainly spelling), not so much. awesome teacher though!
the teaching is amazing...but the tests are really hard
do good on her tests, and you'll do good. participation, as always, is a plus. she'll answer your questions, most of the time. just don't fool around in the hallways or she'll yell at you. (lab reports are a nightmare.)
shes a great teacher, she explains everything and shes the type of teacher that doesnt mind questions she jsut has a problem with people playing around on the escalators
seems cold but can be very nice. difficult to understand. assigns pointless, time-consuming work occasionally. lab reports are killers. its easy to dislike her but makes up for it by doing something awesome now and then.
She's a good teacher....the class is pretty hard, but she does drop your lowest grade and curves your grade too.
Excellent teacher- esp. with her freshmen Advance Topics in Biology Class (S$1/2S or SUB1/2). Be confident- she will help you a lot and she is very kind.
great intel teacher, she's maaad chill once you get on her good side.
helpful and nice, she will pump up your Intel Science Project by a LOT
she's only strict w/ freshman for a reason; you'll grow out of your immaturity tho. a really cool and helpful woman; don't be afraid to approach her
tests smack of self-righteousness, but she curves handsomely in the end. administration keeps her in line.
