Can come off as very rude (which I'm not going to lie, she sort of is) but definately knows her stuff. Gives significantly more homework than other teachers and grades somewhat harsher but it's not too bad. She will make it very VERY obvious whether she likes you or not. You will find yourself loving her at times because of her sense of humor and her stories and hating her at others but if you have people like Arash, Julian and Dchi in your class you will be A-ok.

If you don't feel the vibe with this one, skip it. It's either a love her or hate her kind of game. Don't risk if you even feel the slightest doubt. Go ahead if you like how she carries herself.

Ms. Bales is a great teacher, and is always willing to answer her students' questions. Although she sometimes comes off as mean, it is only because she cares so much about her students. A little less

She has bizzare episodes of abhorence towards her class. She focuses on the negative qualities of her students and enjoys having the whole class hate her. Your a fool if you stay in her class.

Come to class early and dress well. She's the best psychology teacher and the toughest. Don't argue with her. She is one of my favorite teachers in Bronx Science. She's definitely chill, just wait

mrs. bales is a great teacher. her class is easy because she teaches in a simple and coherent way and everyone should be grateful for that. her lateness rule is a bit stiff, but people shouldn't be late in the first place.

She is a helpful hardworking teacher. Well, her test questions are VERY HARD. But somehow she seems to be proud of it. She announces to the freshmen (bio) that she will promise them to pass the regents. -Simply because her test questions are much harder..

Good teacher, but you really have to work for a good grade. Should stop giving hard test questions and say Last year they said it was hard, I was going to take it out, but didn't, maybe next year. Did take us out to experiment for the first snowfall.

I totally and completely disagree with her beliefs on many issues, but she is a good teacher. I love her demos and activities, but sometimes she can't decide whether she's going to tell us something or not and she wastes so much time doing that.
