In college now. Still think back to this class and wince. Ms. Suchanek would use the first 10-20 minutes of class time talking forcefully about her political opinions and disparaging other viewpoints. If you agreed with her about everything, she approved of you (on a good day). If you didn't, she would lecture you in front of the entire class. It was absolutely unprofessional, not to mention intolerant. I learned very little the first year and decided to forego the second year.
always takes time to help students - loved her humor and direct honesty.
I took biology from her the first year she taught at ML. She was more involved than most of the other teachers. She gave me an F for a grade and citizenship. Was I really that bad Miss Powers?
wonderful woman, extremely intelligent. watch out for her politics (she won't be unbiased), but a great teacher. i was with her for a year that started because i had no choice, but it was some of the best times of my life
Awful teacher.I didn't have my assignment to turn in one day and she yelled at me in front of the whole class and I left the room crying!If you're not a perfect student, watch out!
Good information however she is extremely rude and often out of line in her dealings with her students.
My student will study ecology and evolution in college due to the hard work of this instructor - she is a jewel!
She's an awesome person, really fun class and a lot to be learned. Only thing that would make her better would be to leave her strong personal opinions out of the picture.
Suchanek is awesome if you dont like her there is something wrong with you She TRULY cares about students and she is a passionate expert in her field DONT leave ML w/o taking ES!
only MLHS science instructor who cares enough to take us into the field to do first hand work - very cool! Knows her stuff!
What's not to like - she's trained, she's sassy and she respects us. The course ties into many aspects of every life.
pretty cool most of the time, the class is really easy...tree hugger stuff...just don't mention fire marshalls to her and you'll be ok
dude..ms suchanek is a sweetheart. she has good intentions. just respect her, and she will do the same for you. totally NOT prepared for the IB test though 8-)
Jrs. don't always see how everything she does comes back around and ties together - hard to miss the relevancy for all of us.
Great teacher, a little moody at times, but listen to what she says, it makes sense and is relevant to the world for a change, as opposed to some other sciences
Stay away when she's in a bad mood, but her class is relevant and easy and when she's happy she's awesome.
at ML, you either REALLY like suchanek or you don't. some think her class is a waste of time (me included) because it is an SL and is supposed to take 1 year.
A relevant science that makes sense and is presented in a current and meaningful way for all kinds of kids.
She really knows her stuff and cares about her students.
