she um... doesn't really know what she's talking about half of the time. this guy asked her a yes or no question and she went on about strawberries, emergency airplane procedures, and kayaking. but she's easy. although she hates people who talk...

Mrs. Heffernan is always helpful and available if you have questions or don't understand something. She tries her best to make the class fun and not too difficult and she succeeds!

I personally think that she was a great teacher. The year I had was probably the only time in my life that I ACTUALLY liked science... which is actually saying something when it comes from me.

she's disorganized and sometimes she stares you down and makes you feel uncomfortable, but she's ok. she's not mean, and her class is pretty easy.

She has no idea what she is talking about half the time. The other half of the time, she isn't talking.
