I have her as a biology teacher right now and I have to say, she's my least favourite teacher. She goes really fast through the notes and I can't concentrate on her explanations because I'm trying to write fast. Alot of the stuff on the worksheets and tests are things she doesn't even teach you! She has her obvious favourites and I always feel scared to approach her when I don't understand something. Also, if she doesn't like you, she'll show it!

Worst teacher i've ever had. I've never met someone so rude and doesn't care about people who aren't her favorites. She sits you in order of her favorites. She gave me half credit on a project there were no rules too. Doesn't explain anything to you.

Mrs. Philips was one of the worst teachers I had during my high school experience. I never felt like I could approach her about questions. She is quick to pick favourites and is not ashamed to show it. Her personality is very rigid.

She really knows her stuff but has NO IDEA how to teach it. She is a horrible teacher and it wasn't even her first choice for a career. She even told my class that she has tenure so she does whatever she wants and doesn't care. One of the few things I liked was that we got extra credit for eating apples and peanut butter every day. And how she "traded" soda for $1

I guess some of her unorthodox teaching methods were questionable, but she really does know what shes doing (she told us on the first day that she ran a medical lab). But yeah, she clearly has her favorites, and is scary when she yells (made some kids cry). And she is sexist too, but I guess all that is her way of trying to be funny, which she sometimes is.

Poor teacher. She almost knows what she's talking about but is horrible at explaining it. She has favorites and doesn't hide that fact. I'm a honors student taking some of the hardest AP classes and yet her Biology class was the worst class I've ever had. Constantly contradicts herself and is kind of sexist (not an overstatement). She does not deserve to be a teacher or to instruct children at all.

Mrs phillips is one of the worst teachers you could ever have she ruined freshman year for me! I ended up with a B thanks to u and had to teach myself everything!! I'm so sorry if you have her this year, she is just rude and unpleasant. Most teachers at marina are good, so don't give up and if you really need help get a tutor. Good luck u'll need i

Mrs. Phillips is one of the worst teachers i've had. Even thought she knows a lot about biology, she cannot teach and her notes are not clear at all. She is also really rude, not clear about due dates

quite possibly the worst teacher i have ever had. her class is unorganized and she constantly contradicts herself. you basically have to teach yourself the subject because she has no idea what shes talking about. her class is a waste of your time and energy.

Mrs.Philips is my favorite teacher at marina. Her classes are kinda difficult to understand, and at times it feels like she teaches you everything except whats on the test, but if she likes you, you'll have one of the best years of highschool in her class. Just be yourself and she'll like you. :)
