If you have her for Biology she's going to joke around in class but she won't teach you, June is going to be a stressful month for you. If you have her for Chemistry she's going to be seriously psychotic and you'll have to rely on other methods to learn because there are very little lectures. Those packets do help but for auditory learners you need to learn from somewhere like youtube. If you don't follow what she wants word for word she's going to make your life a living hell.

She is a "I want and I want it now" type of person. She is an extremely difficult person.

This teacher is extremely disorganized in the order that she teaches students. She is one of the worst teachers I have ever had. A lot of people say they like her but don't like her teaching, but nothing justifies being an awful teacher. Drowning me in worksheets will not help me, please, I would love to learn from you, please do your job! Stop walking around the classroom in just your socks : If you want to be treated like an adult and with respect, don't act like a child, be professional!

If you dont do the packets then you aren't going to do very well in her class. She mostly makes you do the packets on your own and you can ask her questions if you have any. So if you prefer a teacher that's more proactive when teaching then don't pick her class. She's also quite old school, not the best teacher I've had. She doesn't seem to have that love and energy for teaching that gets students excited to be in her class. She tries though! Overall 3 out of 5.

She is a really cool, nice and funny person. However, as a teacher, she's okay. She explains the material well, but she isn't the best at reviewing and making sure her students know the material. She just throws practice problems at you and expects you to figure everything out yourself.

I had high school bio with Castaneda waaaay back in the day. From what I remember, she doesn't really make you do anything as far as studying goes, but honestly the reagents are the easiest exams in the world. Well, anyway, she definitely sparked my interest in Bio and gave me a fine educational base cuz now I'm in medical school.
