She's nice but a little out there... i took marine bio second semester and the workload was ridiculous, to the point it was unnecessary, even though i had head that the class was particularly easy.

Actually an OK tech lab teacher. Just know that she is going to lose everything you turn in, so be prepared to turn it in again. Very helpful if you ask her questions.

Incredibly relaxed class; you learn as much as you're willing to learn on your own time and in preparation for quizzes.

Not a very good teacher. Don't expect to learn anything. Good class to sleep in.

She's ok...doesn't teach a lot, but I always had enough sleep before school so I never fell asleep in class. Specializes in marine bio, only had her for regular bio tho. Taking AP now, but I'm not doing badly either (maybe I just understand the stuff really easily?). She balanced out Walker in my IBET.

Ok, I didn't take AP Bio just because I had her for normal bio. That just about sums up her teaching skills.

She isn't very good at teaching a whole class. Working individually with her is more beneficial. Watch out for quizzes.

Biology was the worst experience of my life. I learned nothing and I am really angry with her for ruining the class for me. I slept all year.

Mrs. Wu is nice, but sometimes she just doesn't tell you enough directions, reading the textbook helps. It really does

Ms. Wu is nice, but shes very odd/weird. She thought everyone in my class was stupid except for a few people. She scares me sometimes.

she's really nice, but she won't teach you anything. however, her tests aren't very hard, and if you just read the book and don't be too lazy you'll do fine.
