Enough with all the hate reviews, Mrs. Gibbs was a really good teacher. Even though she taught stuff fast, may not have described topics cleared enough, and was hard, she always gave us chances like open notes with a flash card, offered a class money based system to increase your grade if you did bad on a hw assignment or exam, and is such a nice person if you get to know her. If you want to take Chemistry, I totally recommend her, but if you want to take the easy side, go for a easier teacher.

I am very good in bio so I expected to be good in chem too considering I liked learning about this stuff but she throws a lot of information at you and it's hard to retain it all. I recommending studying a lot she is a good teacher but grades harshly and is a lot of work!

*PLEASE READ*. She's so nice and gives you opportunities to get your grade up but she goes so fast in teaching , it's so hard to keep up and be interested ..no one really pays attention lmao when you have a double period you're just gonna wanna cry, it physically hurts your brain. BUT THE TESTS...I FAILED EVERY SINGLE ONE and I was in honors . Just pay attention don't fall behind. Do the multiple choice section in the packet before the test ..it really helps

One of the better Chem teachers, though none are particularly great. She makes a difficult subject slightly less so, and as I said, she's much better than most Chem teachers.

Mrs Gibbs..where do I even begin. OK, well to start off with, she was absolutely the worst teacher i had in my sophmore year. Not only was she unable to teach, but she also was simply a terrible person. This is not coming from someone who failed her class, I did well, but not because of her teaching. I had to study outside sources more than her stupid little notebook where we took useless notes for 42 minutes straight and absorbed no information. By far one of the worst teachers of my education.

Some people just get chem, they understand it. Not me, but Miss Gibbs and strategically placed notes during tests helped me pass. Definitely a great lady.
