Her lack of interest, motivation and unwillingness to help students is very apparent in her teaching style. Good luck studying for the AP test, you're definitely on your own. On top of that, her unprofessional attitude and biases leave her extremeley unapproachable to students.
I'm thankful she didn't completely ruin biology for me, otherwise I would not be starting medical school this upcoming fall.
Good luck guys

AP bio: Lazy. Unmotivated. Moody. She teaches like college professors because you're mostly on your own but it won't help you pass the AP test.

AP bio is a breeze if you know how the class breaks down. You should read the book occasionally and remember to do all the homework. First semester can be a little challenging, but second semester is definitely ez. Oh btw do all the labs as thoroughly as possible. She also gets alot of her test questions from the online resources so remember to take the online practice tests a couple times before each test.

AP BIO: I honestly don't know why people say Ms. Belanger is a good teacher because she's lazy and doesn't really teach you anything in AP. You're kind on your own. She gives good notes though and after a while, you understand what she's likely to ask you on the tests (which are pretty hard compared to Ms. Cacao's test, but that's a good thing b/c you'll pass the AP test). Just read the whole chapter thoroughly the last three days before the test and do the labs, and you'll be free 60% of the time.

I love her class. 3rd period was all I look forward to all year. Mrs. Belanger is so helpful and nice. I swear I love her (as a teacher that is) Her teaching is very clear and easy to understand. Not that much homework and gives quite a lot of extra credit. Shes just simply amazing. I'm happy I had her as a teacher and I'll miss you Mrs. Belanger. You made my freshman year worth it all. Thanks for everything. <3

Super cool teacher! Her class is fairly easy except for the tests! she's a tough grader on labs as well, but homework is extremely easy and the class consists mainly of taking notes (which are really helpful)! Ms. Belanger is really easy going and really tries to help you when you're confused. Just remember to REALLY study for the tests and you'll be good.

She's suuuuper nice! Her tests are hard, so be sure to read the book before each test. Not all the info is in the notes she gives, so READ THE BOOK.

Love how she lets us watch movies. The tests are fairly hard. Homework is easy, just answering questions out of the book and worksheets that give us all the page numbers with the answers in them. Overall easy teacher, if you pay attention in class, and if you don't, just review the notes/worksheets she gives you. Oh and the labs aren't that interesting, but they are a good time killer.

good teacher, very nice and fairly laid back, has clear explanations to questions. although it's a lot of studying on your own, it prepares you for college because that's how college classes are

Failed a ton of students for AP Bio...this is basically a self motivation class. She doesn't teach you anything at all...most of the time, you watch movies or do nothing in class. She is nice though.

Very good teacher, really laid back, doesnt really give lectures, but gives you the guidelines of what to study and read. Most of the time you will do nothing, and you have to learn on your own

Doesn't explain AP BIO that well and her AP scores reflect that, but she's a nice teacher. You can get by that class with an A w/out a book like me :).
