Ellis Quinn is definitely one of the greatest biology teachers anyone could ever have, even with her difficult exams. Best of wishes when she retires.

Great teacher. Too bad she's leaving this year. It's a real downer to see such an enthusiastic teacher leaves. She really knows her biology.

She's a great teacher and sometimes tells funny stories! Beware of period 6A, it's at the end of the day and it makes everyone in my class sleepy.

I remember taking her class freshman year... I literally had to study 4 - 6 hours to get a 100% on two tests twice in a row. I LOVED HER. By far one of the greatest biology teachers EVER

Tests are not hard as long as you study for them and listen to her lectures. I love her quirkiness.

probably one of the best (if not THE best) teacher at DB. she gives lots of EC opportunities and her tests arent really that hard as long as you listen to the lectures and do the outlines.

I LOVE ELLIS QUIN she is, by far, my favorite science teacher IF you study like she tells you too (for 4 hours before a test[I usually study for 2-3]) you'll ace it no problem; tests = 60% final = 10%

This is probably the only hardworking science teacher in DBHS besides Mrs. Doner. She is SO hard, but she teaches well. Do not slack off in her class. She is very nice, and if you need help, she will give you help. She is very encouraging. I had one of the lowest grades in the class, but I worked my way up and was able to pass the AP exam. That is how much she prepares you. There are also a lot of EC oppurtunities.

Ellis-Quinn was by far the best science teacher I have ever had. She teaches well!! Her class is not very hard except her tests. Her tests are very hard!! You have to study hard for them to get an A. But you'll do fine cause she's a very good teacher.
