Mrs. Hankins came back this year after our other Science teacher had to leave. While she was certainly a better teacher (she taught us more), she was kind of strict. Her tests were somewhat difficult, but she really helped people prepare for them in class. A lot of people didn't like her, but I thought she was pretty good! I don't know how she taught other units, but she did her best in trying to make us understand the Genetics unit. I think she was good at helping students understand the topics

I had her class a couple years ago. She is a REALLY good teacher especially when you stay after for extra help. Because of her, I finally understand science. I still remember the things we learned :)

I counted the word "okay" 96 times. In one period. So, if we all do our math correctly, that means 5 (periods) X 96 = 480. That's quite a bit. All in all though, she was an great teacher.

I learned so much from her last year...probably the most i've ever learned in a science class. It's really sad that she retired but I'm glad that I had her as a teacher.

a very mediocre kind of teacher. there's nothing special about her, and she CAN be a bit boring at times. it's the cirriculum that's exciting-- not her. but, i mean, it could be WORSE.

She really isn't that bad of a teacher, having her first period one year was not that bad, althogh many say that she puts to sleep, its really not that bad. She doesn't give like any homework.

Punishes you for being a good student, knowing what you're supposed to know. Also, she's one of those old hags who loves to punish you if you're having too much fun.
