Passionate teacher plus she's funny. I didn't enjoy the material but I still enjoyed the class because I liked her so much
Mrs. Tobin is a great teacher. I have her for Human Interactions and I am learning great things about myself every single class, and she tackles a bad habit of hers every semester with her class. Self improvvment is the name, Mrs. Tobin is the game.
Spirit, strength, intelligence and savvy; she was an amazing teacher and I am so grateful that I took her English class.
Fantastic teacher that never let you get away with doing anything but your best
Ms. Tobin is a very effective teacher. I had her for HI, sophomore English and AP English. I am now a successful writer at a top ten college.
Mrs. Tobin is my FAVORITE teacher! I had her for HI and i learned sooo much! She is hilarious! you can go to her for anything. she is very helpfull!
I had tobin for H.I. and the first day of class i was VERY afraid. as the unit went on, i saw that she made H.I. enjoyable and very entertaining.
Awesome HI teacher. She's very blunt and I liked that. She doesn't beat around the bush, and cusses every once and a while and when she does its pretty funny. I learned alot in class and appreciated her good teaching methods.
Ms tobin is the best teacher ever. she really teaches you things. SHe doesnt lie to you she is 100% real!!!!!!
The first day of class I was ready to transfer out of her H.I. class because I thought this woman was way off her rocker. Once I got to know Bobbin, I realized what an intelligent person she really is and that you can learn a lot from her if you are willing to do the work. After taking both English and H.I. from her, she has become one of my favorite teachers ever.
Tobin should really have two profiles here: one for English, one for Human Interaction. In the latter she's a good teacher, while in the former she is iffy. English 10 with her was hard, but still some fun. AP English this year has been hard but no fun, and I honestly want to know what I'm supposed to have learned this year.
AP English 12: She plays favorites so much it's not even funny, and if she doesn't like you you're screwed. She randomly "ties" whatever is going on in the novel or play you're on into a random tangent or her beliefs. Also has an annoying habit of brushing aside any complaints with her teaching mathod as this being "college", despite the fact that 1) it's not and 2) it's not even like a college class. When the majority of the students wish they hadn't taken the class, that says something about the teacher.
Good teacher, easy class, made an icky subject actually interesting to learn about. The nutrition unit is probably her best unit and the community service project was fun.
Ms. Tobin is hands-down the best English teacher I've ever had. I was in her sophomore honors English class and her guidance changed my writing forever. She's inventive, witty, and very caring. Some people in my class thought she could be pushy and demanding, but I couldn't get enough of her class.
I found Ms. Tobin to be an excellent HI teacher! She truly is passionate and teaches the class well so that the students don't forget these lessons. Great lady too. Really cares!
The most awesome teacher ever. She made Human Interaction fun to sit through as opposed to akward. She is very straight-forward about the subject.
Ms. Tobin is one of Petaluma High's greats. Her stories are what make her class so much better than Ms. Wiley's. I never wanted to miss a second of that class because she'd go off on some story that you didn't want to miss. One of my favorites.
I believe I learned more in Ms Tobin's English class then in any other English class I have ever had. Although she can be tough, if you show effort she can become very helpful. I had a great time in her class, even if i did write so many essays.
People are unfair in their ratings of her. What did ya expect while taking human interactions? Yes I agree that her stories got a little two personal, but other then that I thought she was a great HI teacher. Also served as a great mentor through my years
I found her teaching method extremely inappropriate. She favored students and was very eager to make examples of those who disagreed with her opinions. I came to learn and left with a pocketful of embarrassing stories and uncomfortable situations.
my fav english teacher so far. she gives you the respect you give her. she's funny and out there, but if you are willing to work hard, it's easy to get an a.
Ms Tobin is the best English teacher I have ever had. My writing improved ten-fold. She is not wishy-washy like others and is not afraid to say what she thinks.
she was alot of fun!! maybe a little to detailed for HI... but it was a fun class
O.K. teacher, but her stories are a little too personal and scary (she taught Human Interaction, so that should give you a hint of the subject of these stories)
