I had Ms. Porter for college prep biology, which during my time required a special entrance exam if you wanted to take it as a freshmen, which I did. Ms. Porter is strict but she is a good teacher and knows her stuff. If you are committed to learning in an advanced biology course, then you won't have any problems. Ms. Porter is a no-BS teacher who focuses on the science and that's it. I now have my Bachelor's degree in Biology and she is the closest you'll come in high school to a college prof.
Easily the worst teacher I have ever had. I learned nothing during a year in her college prep bio class. She does not teach, she loses your work, and she won't make eye contact. There is nothing good
Definetly do not take her. She is a very hard grader and does not care about her students. She is not very easy to talk to or ask questuions to. with homework, she will not help you. Have miss mick
