I think this woman is brilliant. I've been exposed to more useful content in her class than I have my whole undergraduate career. I've paid $1,500 each for courses like genetics, biology of the cell, and physiology - just to refer back to Mrs. Brewers notes. If you can't appreciate her you are immature, lazy and small minded. Good luck in college!
Mrs. Brewer's class is the best class I've ever taken. She's so funny and so fun to talk to. If you don't love her you're wrong!!!
These other reviews don't do Mrs. Brewer justice. I went into the class thinking that she would be a tad conceited and cold based on what I heard, but she is very relatable and her stories really make the class interesting. Her lectures are one of very few that I can actively listen to the entire hour and her use of models is unique and helpful. Her stories make it even better. Very tough class, but one that makes you very glad you took it.
10 years have given me enough of a perspective on Ms. Brewer as a teacher. She is by no means terrible. The best way to describe her is the teacher version of an overachieving asian kid at troy high constantly looking to pad a resume with meaningless accolades. While I do respect the fact that she makes the effort to even do these things, but the praise for her is over-exaggerated. She is an un-inspired teacher who can only teach to the test and can't answer any of my harder questions.
She is the worst, has this massive ego just because she won some meaningless awards. Quizzes have grammar issues everywhere so she past biology but not English. Cant explain for jack and calls out student for no reason just to make them look bad. Her labs are a huge waste of time not helping us understand the topic and is to busy trying to be funny and saying how perfect she is it waste out time.I11 don't know what USA today or Oprah was thinking but they have low standards for a good teacher.
SHE IS THE WORST TEACHER EVER!!! She'll just show you her stupid powerpoint in the beginning trying to act like she is the smartest person in the world. Doesn't help and CAN'T ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS!!! She only cares about students winning contests for her!!!
Useless. I'm glad though-- with this class, I am now prepared for professors that can't teach in college.
I'm one of those kids that is smart enough to get by without much studying. So I could do her tests and get good grades no problem. It was no thanks to her though. This was definitely one of the worst teachers I ever had. She is overly conceited on how many "awards" she got, half of which I couldn't even find on Google. She doesn't teach much either, all she does is give me a summary of the book. Why'd you give the textbook then? She doesn't cover any extra material and can't answer any question
Most conceited person i have met in my life. First day of class she showed us a power point of all her life accomplishments (she somehow has lk 50 teaching awards) Overall terrible person and terrible teacher.
Terrible teacher. She can't answer any question clearly and her quizzes are hard. Boring lecturer.
Mrs. Brewer's...interesting. She's definitely not the worst teacher ever, but she's one of those teachers who just does her job and doesn't go that extra mile to help the struggling students. If you're smart and study, this class will, for the most part, be a breeze. If you're not, she's not really that approachable or helpful.
I must say that a lot of her models are very helpful, but I feel she kind of gets a lot of undue credit because of her smart students. Overall a good teacher.
7 years later, with a degree in microbiology, I still draw on the things I learned in her AP bio course.
Rather rude. Pace of the class is extremely fast, and she doesn't offer help [even blames students for not being smarter]. Sucks all the fun out of Biology.
hard class, but she explains things very well and is really organized. makes bio fun. love the class
She works you, but you learn a ton. The class is face-paced, but doable if you're motivated to study regularly. She's very organized and explains topics well. My favorite class and teacher at THS
She's a nice lady, but unforgiving. Bio AP is a very hard class, and you MUST prepare for it. I think a lot of people unfairly blame her for their own lack of motivation.
ms. johns is a great teacher but i don't understand why she's always laughing.?
she explains biology very well we are very fortunate because she gives us notes and eother classes have to write everysingle thing out she is a good teacher and i cant wait to have her for AP
I love Miss Johns! She's so nice. I actually liked biolgoy and understood what was going on. And she's always willing to help. I'm glad I got her for a teacher this year.
I came into this class loving the science of Biology. I came out this class entirely rid of all my neurons.
Frequent talk about boyfriend. Often brought him in to set up labs, erase boards, etc. Boyfriend graded notebooks in error. Hard pressed to get corrected...
Give her a break guys, she is a cool teacher and a cool person... her explenations are awesome and she can keep the class alive.
Mrs. Johns is a cool teacher. Bio Ap is a really hard class i think it effects what we think of her. still fake though
She just isn't clear, can't answer ?s without looking at her notes.
altho she's tough u guys don't give her enough credit
but the school could only afford the bargan with the low iq
Mrs. Johns should be clear on what will appear on the tests.
too much work...too little learning...but good for the AP
