she wasn't good at teaching in front of a class but she knew what she was talking about. She's dead now
Just lectures the entire class. Everyone always has to try their hardest not to fall asleep every single day.
She is quite the teacher. Very knowledgeable on her subject and clearly cares. Albeit the class gets boring, but if you care enough to get a great grade, you will pay attention, any bad grade or trouble on a test is your own fault. She really gives you tons of opportunities for e.c. and practically gives you the test for the review. She just asks you try, just wait 'til you have chemistry before you complain about this class. All together fun and very helpful.
What a joke of a class. I had over 100% in bio, but she put us all to sleep. Someone literally fell asleep every day.
Graduated in '98 but remember her being helpful and kind outside of class. Tests were hard, but I never liked science anyway.
hard to stay awake. i think that smartboard made my eyes go bad.
hard class even in regulars. her tests are impossible but her review packets are impossible and take up all your time. to many pages on the final packets to. she makes her classes the hardest to pass
ya no..they dont call it honors bio for nothin. ya, was hard. but we all learned somthing from it (not that i still no it. but then i did :-D ) PS... dont let her no if u wrestle..
her class is hard but she really is there for us students
Too much memorization... and she hated are class 7th hour 02
Shes not very cool, we take notes all week and then have a test on friday basically. too many assignments with no time to study
She is the kindest teacher at Northwest. Wonderful lady, and always there to help after school... I like her teaching style as well.
I agree with the person who said it was a DIY class. I give her class a DIY difficulty rating of 5 stars (on a 4-star scale). Proceed with caution.
She is very hard and I would love to switch out of this class.Too much work.Doesn't teach. What more can I say?
Gibney is nice and has a pleasant personality. The material she teaches her class, however, leaves much to be desired. The class is just brute memorization.
I hope this new textbook they're getting will encourage her to change. I really didn't feel like it was an Honors class. We hardly ever discussed anything.
i dislike this lady very much,lets hand the kids a packet, have them find the answers and then give them a test no movement involved, love the 10 page papers to
Not too hard, if you pay attention. Boring. Lots of memorizing, but you learn alot. Tests are LONG! I wish she would stop looking and printing volleyball pics!
she's a good teacher, but i personally think she should be at the upperclassmen level. her teaching style is hard to follow i think for freshman
gibney is a great teacher and makes her classes as good as possible good person too
a good person, but she should be more involved in actual teaching, and work on more interactive stuff. too many worksheets and busy work.
Boring, but u get a lot of info. Too much busy work. Picks on people too.
Really awesome teacher overall. Great teaching style, and is there for help anytime you need her!
