I love Ms. Tierney she has been a great Marine Science teacher she teaches an easy class which means you really should not be fooling around in her class and she really puts up with crap that students give her. I'm sad this is her last year of teaching.

Tierney is a wonderful teacher. If you do everything she tells you and not fool around, you should do great in her class.

1. High pitch annoying voice 2. Makes the subject way harder than its supposed to be 3. Mandatory Test corrections. If you dont get the material in the first place then you will not be able to do the test corrections, so you get a worse grade 4. When you ask for help she tells you to read the book 5. She freaks out when you ask other people for help because she told you to look in the book
Heres some adivce, if you get Ms. Tierney, get out. If i could have switched out i would have.

AFS-- probably the most painful class. She's a bit of a misanthrope. Do not want.

If you respect Ms. Tierney and do the best you can in her class, she will do whatever she can to help you pass the class. So what if she's a little outdated? She knows what she's talking about.

On some days she was cool but most of the time she wasn't helpful and was mean, we had to teach ourselves the math and it was hard, especially the lab reports. All i can say is thank God im done...

Don't listen to any of the 'bad' reviews. Ms. Tierney is wonderful, funny, and smart. She knows EVERY science (chem, bio, phys). However, her class (AFS and chem) was simply too much busy work :(

Be polite, and she'll respect you. She seems to like kids with a good sense of humor. But there's a lot of quizzes. Try not to stare at the clock TOO often. Hardest class I've had by far.
