She's extremely fun to be with but you still have to respect her to a certain extent. If you take her class be prepared to read the textbook on your own. don't procrastinate on hw! The research paper is actually much easier than how she hypes it so don't stress. She's great but theres a decent amount of work. Lab days are by far the best. Also shes extremely helpful so don't be afraid to ask her questions

Ms. Hake is a fun and upbeat bio teacher. Labs are very interesting, and her lectures are worth listening to. Lab finals are a pain, though. The class is actually quite hard, but just study for tests and make sure your labs are 100% correct.

I love Ms. Hake! Possibly the funniest and best teacher to have! If you're ever unclear on a subject, she'll describe it until you understand. Love the labs. You do read the textbook a lot on your own for the homework. As long as you study from the textbook the tests should be easy!

Mrs. Hake is a super funny teacher, but her class is really hard! Barely any people get higher than an A at the end of the semester. Her class is really hard, but if one wants to survive her class, they need to pay attention and take notes.

I currently have Ms. Hake, and I think she is truly an amazing teacher. She makes lessons fun, without taking the educational part out of it, and is considerate when it comes to assignments and correcting tests. The only thing I do not like about her class are when you get a grade from one person in your group, but I can deal with that. She is really hilarious, and I'm enjoying her class.

Mrs. Hake is the best (: she will help you grow as a student AND as a person. She is available to help whenever she can, and will even give advice in your future years of high school. Yes, she's tough, but she's tough in a good way. Regardless of the grade you end up with, you will have gained plenty of knowledge in biology and lots of good memories! She incorporates plenty of humor into her lessons and makes some concepts much easier to grasp that way.Great teacher, wish she taught AP bio.

Mrs. Hake is great! She's hilarious and is very helpful and caring, but her tests...are not so caring. They're HARD. Especially the lab final... And be sure to be very descriptive and down to the point in your essays because she is a very hard grader and looks for facts and details. If you don't, you'll miss 12 points just on essays, like me.
