I liked her. To all you current students, if show an effort it goes a pretty long way
Really liked Mrs Duryea. She was super knowledgeable and willing to give extra help to those students who were struggling a bit but actually made an effort. There was a wide range of students in my class, some smart and some not so smart but I think she did a good job at keeping everyone's attention and advancing the students who actually wanted to learn
Does anyone know why she is missing so much school? If it is a medical issue, I feel bad. However, we've done nothing. She reads notes exactly from the board and doesn't elaborate on anything. How are we going to do well on the Keystone Biology exam?
The worst teacher I have ever had, a recording of someone saying "read the directions" would be a better teacher than Diane Dureya. The fact that she has multiple degrees is honestly scary
OMG MRS.D! She honestly does not seem like a bad person. But if you get her switch out! I dont think 'teaching' is having your students READ the textbook. When i think of DD, i think of busy work, the book, and teaching myself! Bio is a hardd subject and you actually need a teacher! HATE the class so much! Probably the worst teacher and worst teaching style at PR. SWITCH if you get her. SHE DOESNT EVEN KNOW OUR NAMES! She calls us by number! all you do is read the textbook over and over and over
I liked Mrs. D. as a person, but she's too HARD. Come on . . . It's high school not college!! You actually have to do work in that class.
I think that Mrs. Duryea is a good person...just not an amazing teacher. She tries to be helpful by giving us excess study material, but I just found it annoying. Maybe she will improve for next year.
Lousy teacher...made us color and listen to ocean songs
She isn't a very good teacher, She just gave us coloring worksheets. Coloring doesn't have to do with science!!! She also made us listen to these lame sing along tapes. WEAK!
