The best class to catch up on homework from other classes. She has no clue what she is doing. She often forgets what she had said. She doesn't even realize when you hand in HW or lab a month late and still gives you credit (yes she's that forgetful). Her tests seem hard but they come from the Regents. Her teaching skill is very poor - basically just giving a bunch of notes to copy and they are hard to understand. My tip is just do your work, study the regents book, and you'll definitely pass.

She's not mean - she just doesn't teach well (tons of board notes to copy without explaining them) and is very disorganized, but at least her tests are super easy and her class is very easy to pass.

The review before is true, she DOES teach the same thing DaVinci learns and she is very easy on students. It's just her teaching method can sometimes be uncomfortable to some people but you are still able to learn and do well in her class if you work hard.

If you are put in her class, I would suggest switching out as soon as possible, if you are interested in passing the course. She is completely unorganized, disrespectful, and just plain lazy. She makes students write notes on the board for everyone to copy rather than teaching the class herself. She loses labs, gives her tests on things we didn't even cover, and cannot control her class one bit. She should have stopped teaching a long time ago, as she is not helping her students at all.

She's not worth being a teacher. She's incompetent, can't teach and can't even control her class. Sometimes she lost my homework and labs. I had to make up for them for my grade although it was obviously her fault.

By far the worst teacher ive had in my entire school career, and i'm not just talking about high school. Completely rude, unorganized, and plain overall terrible at teaching. Don't plan on learning.

Very rude, and yells a lot when everyone is behaving. She lost my labs and gave me a 52. I was able to fix the grade, but even so. Also expects us to memorize way too much--We had to memorize 3 blackboards in one day!
