Teaches like a college professor, but still knows how to engage us in HS. Difficult for the material (and she knows her material very well) but she is helpful and good.

Shes a good teacher agreed, but sometimes she gotta clarify some facts using a more creative approach such as experiments. Also, she should change the pitch in her voice now and then, to avoid the monotone voice, which makes the topic sound boring.

She's getting a bit tangled now towards the end but doing suprisingly well for her 1st yr as an AP teacher. Seems to be interesting and fun. Likes to keep class on track, personally dont like that labs count for 50% <-(Course mandate, not teacher issue
