Never teaches, when she does it's just notes we copy down with little explanation. We then never look at those notes again. Everyone has to cram the night before the tests which are insanely hard for a class we never learn in. The only reason I think I passed the IB exam is because I read the 250 pages of the textbook we needed to know the weekend before the exam. The only good part of her class is that it's super easy and we do nothing until test day hits you in the face.
Hardly ever teaches us, instead, we learn everything through the textbook. Her tests are pretty difficult considering the fact that she lectures a maximum of two times per unit. All we ever do is textbook work, and never any labs.
Pretty sure the school only hired her for swimming, and is pretty easy. We will have entire blocks in which she just gives us an assignment and lets us do whatever we want for the rest of the block.
Ms. Bitting is one of the best teachers in PHUHS, she is a great teacher and will help you understand anything, even more she helps you with any life problems an amazing teacher
She's nice enough but her class is almost entirely book work. We just concluded the first quarter and she has only "lectured" twice. I'm using the term lecture fairly loosely of course, she just puts notes on the overhead and goes on about completely unrelated personal experiences. She's late to class almost every session. The class itself is super easy despite her short comings. (I'm in the SL Bio class, not freshmen bio if that's any help)
Even if you do not excel in biology, Bitting will be more than willing to give you extra help. There are many opportunities during class to ask questions, and you can schedule time to meet up with her. Very helpful teacher, and interesting class
Try not to sing in her class. And be a swimmer, she will like you more... and get good grades on her tests...
Her basic understanding in the use of the English language is poor.
She is sooo awesome!!!!! This is such a great class and teacher!
STUDY THE NOTES!!!!! Some information won't be in the section that you are supposed to read. A LOT of the test/quiz material is straight from the notes.
Really nice teacher. Makes class fun, super laid back.
ms. Bitting is amazing.. just make sure you understand the notes. She is so easy to talk to when in need of help. Shes really nice and dosent give to much work
Overall great teacher! Really relateable and nice! Just read her notes and you will be set!
One of the most awesome science teachers I've had so far. She's nice, but she cares about your education, as long as you study the notes you take, you'll ace this class easily.
Didn't like her too much at first, but she's really very nice. Doesn't prepare you too well for the exam, but the class is pretty easy.
if you are a swimmer then she likes you a whole lot more. divers get the short end of the stick and no awards even if ur a captain.
MS.BITTING UR AWSOME....even though i only had u for like 5 days...well 2 sessions
Coach Bitting is awesome! Though she spends more time with the swimmers..she still loves us divers! Great Biology teacher for IB kids.
She's really cool. Im not good in science but I can understand it when she gives us notes instead of reading out of the book. The class is interesting; we usually do something like a lab or something in groups instead of like silent classwork.
Ms. Bitting was a great IB biology Teacher! I miss her!
