Not the best teacher, I feel that the only reason I did so well was because I get science pretty well. I think it was good that she retired, I could tell that her being around chemicals for so long was not great for her mental abilities...

Knows her chemistry, just not how to teach it. It is almost as if this woman sat down and planned out the worst way she can possibly teach material. Paying attention in class is a lost cause, the only way to succed is by finding out chapter numbers and straight memorizing. My interest and prior love for chemistry has been tarnished by her class. Avoid her class if you can, it is NOT worth the honors credit.

It's easy to see why lazy students dislike her...she requires that you :::gasp::: actually do some work and thinking outside of class. Prepares you for college

Ms. Ligon made chemistry my favorite class last year, atmosphere-wise. Her spirit and engagement make chemistry actually tolerable!

She seems to know her stuff about chemistry but explains it at a super high level that you can't understand.

Shes a bit confusing at first, but you get used to her. Her assignments aren't that hard, and shes willing to help after school.

She is so scatter brained. I could not learn anything and had to get a tudor to even pass the class. She makes everything, even easy concepts really difficult.

It seems like she knows the material and would make a good chemist, but she can't teach.
