Ms. Liem's biology class tests a deep understanding even beyond AP, which seems inconsistent in difficulty level when compared to other science classes (Physics, Chemistry). My biggest complaint is that Ms. Liem is more concerned with adhering to a rigid curriculum and grading system rather than promoting engagement and interest, which I've noticed turns many students away from learning. This is not to say she's a bad teacher – just beware that she makes biology mundane with lots of busy work.
