Absolutely awful, one of the worst teachers I have ever had. She is really mean and condescending. I HATED her class and dreaded going there every session. I don't know why she has positive reviews .
Of all my teachers, she does teach us. Spanish, history, physics are you kidding? Science is not my best subject but I have learned a lot and do a lot of labs which help me learn. I hope I do as well in Biology next year.
My favorite teacher and class. I come in many mornings and she always helps me. I make A's because of this extra help with understanding. If you work hard and do all of the assignments, you will do well. The labs are fun too.
I am a formal student of Mrs. Whitaker and I have Mr. Dull this year for AP chemistry. I was well prepared for Mr. Dull's class but I have one bit of advice. If you are going to take chemistry next year, keep all of your notes from this year. They will come in handy especially at the end of your junior year. Mr. Dull will not be able to complete all of the content before the AP exam so your notes from 10th grade will help you. ex. gas laws, electron configuration etc.
love the class, webpage is helpful, labs are fun, class is interesting. I probably will be taking higher level chemistry next year because I feel I have had a good foundation for success.
One of the nicest teacher I know. She is willing to help and cares that we do well. I like the easy going atmosphere of the class and the group work on white boards. Mrs. Whit is NICE!
I feel that I have learned a lot this semester. We took a pre test in the beginning of the year and I only made a 33%. We just too the test again at the end of the first semester, and I improved to a 80%! Mrs. Whitaker told us that we will be taking the test again at the end of the year and I hope to make a 100% once I learn the rest of the chemistry material. I think she is a great teacher and has influenced me to consider taking higher level chemistry next year.
Chemical reaction labs ROCK! I definitely will be taking higher level chemistry next year. The class is structured and very systematic. Mrs. Whitaker teaches well.
i really like the group work on white boards it gives us a chance to understand the lesson before we leave the class
So far this is my favorite class as a sophomore. I like that the class is interesting and I especially like the labs. Mrs. W explains well for all of us to understand.
Study groups in the morning before tests was helpful. Mrs. W is always there in the mornings to help you.
If you have this class next year,do the hw. and pretests. It helps because the test material comes from the notes, pretests and homework. Goo class. I learned a lot and it was interesting.
The mixture lab was fun. If you sign up for chemistry next year, you will be prepared.
easy going....likes teaching and it shows. She helped me by allowing me to retake a test that I bombed.
The labs are fun and different. Group work helps me understand the material better. Overall, good teacher
she likes her students too much, winking and licking her lips a lot. she assigns a lot of busywork that is completely irrelevant to the tests. she is very annoying and doesnt answer questions well
Fine first semester. Easy class in the beginning of the year. Flips a switch second semester. Grades plummet. Condescending.
I like her, but I had a hard time truly learning anything in her class. Sometimes she tries too hard to get along with the students. Overall, not too bad.
Mrs. Whitaker is a good teacher. She gives us fun labs, and food! She also has a really good sense of humor, and the squirt gun is cool.
I like Mrs. Whitaker because she cares about her students and gives us food.
