She is clueless to be honest and never knows what the class is doing. She never teaches anything and often gives homework on fill in the blank notes, which she gives the answers too, and notebook questions which is the only way that we learn anything. Class is also really boring because she often gives fill in the blank notes and makes you watch Bill Nye. At this point I'm sick of Bill Nye because she shows it so much. Her tests are easy as long as you've done the homework.

She changes the class format daily. Makes it more interesting. My class is early morning so I'm always so asleep.

Mrs. Yakulis is a great teacher. She is very funny but can sometimes be clueless to what students are doing. She is easy-going and understanding. The class mainly consists on using reading note taking guide, watching videos, and using interactive websites. The tests and quizzes are very simple and easy to score high on. She is a generous grader too.

She's super boring, and not very knowledgeable. The class mostly consists of note-taking and watching Bill Nye... of course, while taking notes >:(

She was the worst teacher I've ever had. She was often rude, and belittled, demeaned, and bullied the students. As a teacher, she is very unqualified and seems to know less then her students. I empathize deeply with anyone who had to go through the trauma of having her.

Mrs Yakulis is overall an extremely nice teacher, which is a plus. However, she doesn't seem to know how to teach. She gives us fill in the blank notes, and super easy tests. Most of the time, she redirects us to other sources (Bill Nye, CK12, our Textbook, etc) for information rather than teaching it herself. Her grading system is horrendous, and she will often lose your homework or other assignments, and then make you do it again, blaming you for the loss.

She's very nice if you're on her good side. If you're not... then you will not like her. It's obvious she doesn't know the material she is teaching, and we watch videos and do labs that don't have anything to do with the material we are learning.
