She's a very nice teacher, but a very hard one. You have to put in a ton of work to do well in her class, and even then you might fail. Some people really like her as a teacher others cannot stand her teaching style. Her classes are not for everyone.

I never felt at ease in Lisa's class. She is not a very kind or understanding teacher and since I was always intimidated I could never focus on what I needed to focus on. It is a shame she is not a nicer person because I normally like science.

One of the nicest, funniest, smartest, most sensible teachers. Very hard course but she knows what's she's Doing and if you put in the time, the grade will usually follow.

Lisa's a wonderful teacher. She knows her material and is able to deliver it in a very clear, quick manner. However, sometimes she is TOO quick, making note-taking a little difficult. That can be easily remedied by going in to talk to her during extra help. Very difficult course but not impossible to get an A. Worth being on her good side because her sense of humor and personality is awesome. She is so much fun and one of the best Overlake teachers I have ever had.

I've had her for two years. Both classes were difficult and stressful, but she knows her stuff.

Doesn't let you make up tests, and is quite intimidating, but a good teacher nonetheless.
