Mrs. Buchanan is a great teacher! She is very clear and is very funny. She will make you laugh and you'll have fun but make sure you do your work!

At the beginning of the year you will like her a lot, but as the year goes on you will get sick of her and she will get sick of you. She gets very mean towards the end, or as she likes to put it "spiteful and vindictive". She gets mad easily, sometimes is unclear, and is not a great teacher. But overall, her tests/quizzes are fair and her class was pretty good.

Very nice lady, classes were pretty dull and homework was heavy in the beginning of the year, but it got a lot better by the end. Super easy to get and maintain an A average if you actually try. Offers extra help often. Plus she's Swedish, so yeah.

She isn't a great teacher and her quizzes are unfair. She should go teach biology instead of earth science.

I just can't stand her sometimes. She's an alright teacher I guess, but she's so boring and annoying. She makes things confusing and we don't learn much. I'll understand something, and then she tries to explain it a different way, and then I get confused again. Sometimes she should just be quiet and make things more simple. Too many labs and too much homework and way too many review packets.
