She will be like your mother at school rather than the chem teacher. I was her AP student this year and found this class really challenging. You will get limitless number of homework so you better be prepared. You will sometimes find yourself being frustrated cuz other kids may have higher average than you. But dww always ask for help and self stidy then you will ave with 5 on Ap exam and easy 800 SAT. Good luck to all and have fun!!!!

My review from last time is under.
Even today may have been a bad day for me today in her class, I still have to say that she is a very inspiring teacher. I may not necessarily be amazing at Chemistry ( my strongest science is Earth Science), I have to say that she manages to shown radiance with her amazing passion.
I always feel bad when I end up being stuck in traffic, but I'm glad that I have her amazing words written down.

People may criticize her in the lab, but she's the most prepared Chemistry teacher in the school. As an Honors teacher, she will push you hard to make sure you understand Chemistry, and her notes are clear. What she teaches does appear on the PSAT and SAT. She's very enthusiastic when it comes to Chemistry, and she sees her textbook as her Bible. She brings her analogies in the classroom, and her aura outside the classroom

She seems very intimidating at first, but she is actually a very kind person. She cares about her students A LOT. If you don't have a good grade in her class, she really encourages you to do your best. She is often slower at teaching compared to the other teachers, but it's because she teaches more. She may yell a lot and get frustrated easily to those who are below average. And homework is the MOST IMPORTANT.
Students grade exams, but she checks over them. I know because I used to doit

As someone has mentioned, Kim is nice outside of class but she doesn't know how to organize her own work and that causes the classes she teach to become quite confused. I've dealt with quite a number of not-so-good teachers and Kim's personality can be so confusing that idk how to feel about her. Overall, I wish I had a diff teacher.

She is pretty good lab teacher, she explains everything in the beginning of class. But she tends to be late and leaves class late will lots of unfinished lab papers. She get's pissed if you tend to get her labs incomplete or unsatisfactory a lot. In the beginning of the year, be prepared to get butchered. Later on, it's gets more chill (as long as you don't have a bad reputation), she doesn't grade you strictly much. She scans your paper to make sure you have the essentials, and that's it.

In my experience, I've learned that Kim is a very great person, but a very bad teacher when it comes to slow learners. Often times there is no point in asking questions, as she begins to complain and state, "But this is so simple", great teacher if you learn at a fast pace, but Kim makes Chemistry be learned so that you only know Chemistry, not understand it.

She's not that great. She lets students grade exams, so that she does less work. Can you believe that students graded your mid-term and final exam? And she even has many babies on the side so that she could use pregnancy as an excuse not to teach. Someone has to teach her to use contraception.

It shows that Mrs. Kim genuinely cares about her students. From listening to her speak you can tell that she is interested in chemistry and wouldn't mind spending her whole life talking about it. She's always willing to offer extra help or tutoring when a student needs it. She makes sure that everyone understands her even if it means moving at a slower pace. She also applies what we learn in class to the world around us, to make it easier to remember.
