She doesnt teach, she shows you a powerpoint and tell u to write notes and doesnt explain anything, she gives you a random quiz that she said she told you about but she didnt. she is a terrible teacher and if you have her, i feel bad for you. i dont recommend her at all and if you dont get her when you go to kennedy, you are very lucky

She gets angry very quickly and her quizzes are really hard. She doesn't teach, she just throws stuff on the board. She talks the entire time during a quiz and doesn't even answer the questions about the quiz. She expects us to know everything because we are honors and puts so much pressure on honors.

Mrs.Choma can be a tyrant at times. She stopped Bird of the Day, and yelled at me right before a quiz. I wasn't even doing anything wrong and she screamed at me. She puts notes up and just talks.

She doesn't teach. She just throws the notes on the board and expects us to just learn it. She expects us to spend our whole nights studying. She always yells at us for talking and gets really annoyed. It's my lowest grade because I don't understand anything in the slides and she refuses to teach!

She puts notes on the board and expects us to know them all without teaching use the material. She thinks that just because we are honors, that we should know the material on the quizzes and test that she didn't teach yet. We get the notes on the subject after we take the quiz, and then after confronting her she acts surprised and acknowledges us but still fails to raise our grade. She seems to have sudden mood swings and outburst which makes the class terrified. To be continued...

She gives notes on slides and doesn't teach or explain them and expects us to know them. All her quizs and tests are from past regents and sometimes have information or diagrams we have never seen before. She wastes time daily with "The Bird of the Day." She never uses the textbook or workbook. Do not recommend at all

She is slow on all knowledge of science. Her quizs r slow and she gives us regents questions. Too many quizs and all we do is take notes and expects us to know all the material and expects us to also study 5 hours a day

Mrs. Choma was a nice lady--when she wanted to be-- and oh so very cold the other half of the time. She's not evil like a lot of the teachers that work at that school but she doesn't know how to teach. Yes, she is very, very smart and she knows what she is talking about but she doesn't know how to convey it to students. I got 40s all year but still managed to pass her class (I think she inflates her grades)... Also do your homework it will be the only thing that saves you.

Awful teacher expects you to know everything before stepping foot into the classroom. She teaches directly out of a textbook, and expects you to study 5 hours a night, forget having a social life. She may be qualified to teach on paper but that does not make her a good teacher. Her tests are IMPOSSIBLE, and you are essentially teaching yourself this course have fun. She should honestly be fired, and never be allowed to teach again. This is the most dreadful class, and is a waste of 42 minutes.

Wow! Mrs. Choma! I had her as a school teacher about 20 years ago! Kids, listen carefully and study hard. Mrs. Choma has a lot to offer you and can open your eyes and imagination to biology.

Great teacher. Students do very well. Can be a little "stuck up" at times but is a master at the subject. Politically it is easy to tell that she is very Democratic, and puts down the conseatives.
