Excellent teacher. My daughter earned a 5 on the EOC, even though she was a Special Needs Student. Those students who have given Ms. Mena a lower rating are probably the ones that don't study and are failing the course. Get your acts together.
Ms. Mena will work you and expect your best. But she is helpful and understands if you talk to her. Give it your best and you will learn alot.
Man she picks favorites, and if she doesn't like you she'll try to fail you. When you try to be involved and ask questions she doesn't answer or looks at you like you're stupid. there is way too much homework and unneccesary text pressure and she acts like her class is a college course or something.
My child learned so much in her class, she is now pursuing a career in medicine. She is very knowledgeable.
She is in the classroom everyday. Although I wouldn't call what she's doing there teaching. She has been at this too long. A lab shouldn't be a paper you fill out, it should be an actual lab performed. Prior to taking the EOC all of the subject matter contained within the test, should have been covered.
When a student asks a question, provide an answer not a snide remark.
Time for her to start collecting her pension, because she has lost her passion for teaching ALL of her students.
Ms. Mena is without a doubt one of the best teachers (if not THE best) in the whole school. She teachers her subject VERY seriously, answers any questions to the best of her ability, and truly cares for the success of her students. Very strict when teaching and her own schedules very strictly. NOT an easy class but she does prepare you for her tests - anyone who says otherwise simply does not study, plain and simple.
Ms. Mena is a great teacher.she is very understanding and always willing to help in any way. very clear .....she makes biology/botany fun
She is the best science teacher. I have learned more from her this year than I have had in my entire life. She is passionate about what Biology.
Completely, utterly, wholly, soley, entirely type A. She runs on a schedule to the nanosecond, which is about the same amount of time she takes to elaborate on substantial data. If you don't understan
She's so passionate about biology it's almost contagious. Very caring, sweet and above all law abiding so don't try any nonsense or lame excuses with her.
ms. mena is amazing she cares about her students so much as if they where her own kids. she never forgets anybody. she is a tough teacher but she always tries to give you plenty of easy stuff to do to
Ms. Mena is an excellent teacher but tough. She knows her stuff and is passionate about biology. Exams are difficult but she is always accessible to students. She really wants her students to succeed.
ms. mena is one of the few teachers at DASH who really cares about her students. she truly loves biology and will go beyond what is expected of her to help us understand it.
