Ms. Smallowitz (or Ms. Smalls as we like to call her) is a good teacher, and an even better person (she's so nice). She explains the concepts of biology really well, and gets kids interested in the subject. Advice: Participating will help SO much in her class. Her tests aren't impossible, but you definitely must study and attend extra help (which she always offers). She prepared me so well for the Regents, but not as well for the SATs (which is why I took a star off). But overall, I love her.

At first, i was wary, but she proved to be a great teacher who wanted her students to do their best. she explained most topics thoroughly and i did very well on the Bio regents and good on the SAT 2. her tests were rather hard, so study a lot and take good notes! she will help you or answer any questions you have. although she may not yell if you dont do your hw she will take away points, be ready to be prepared every day with hw. she is really nice and brings in food a lot! :)

She is a really nice person and a great teacher. Her tests are hard and class is boring, but you can ask for help and she will definitely make time to help you. Tip* Go to the review sessions after school. They really help. And she gives food there too.

She was ok. She was really nice, but i was never able to pay attention, and whenever I asked for help with something, she really didn't help me effectively. I got a B , and I'm a straight A student..

One of my favorite teachers ever. Made everything really easy to understand. She's one of those teachers you could just talk to for fun. So much fun in that class.
