Brannum was the hardest teacher i had over 4 yrs at TC, i took bio without honors and i still i rececived the lowest grade i ve had in all 4 yrs. for my 10th to 11th grade, i had all A s in everything. Everyone told me to switch to Fick and i thought everyone who said that just can't work hard enough, but i ended up with a low grade even though i tried.

you guys are so whiny. the only reason why you guys are probably getting bad grades is 'cause you guys don't pay attention in class. also, she's not even that bad. everything she says is on the test, so you can't say that she doesn't tell us what's gonna be on it. the only reason people say bad things about her is 'cause you guys don't try and things are confusing to you. if you listen, it's easy.

Horrible. Not helpful at all or clear, and is the most notorious teacher out there in TCHS. Drop out of this class ASAP. Regular bio is just as bad as honors bio if you have her. Way too nitpicky about everything. You even have to pay for your tissues. 5 cents for 2 tissues. Seriously. There's nothing good to say about her.

Best Teacher Ever. She was a great teacher and I enjoyed all the time I had in her class. Her class is preparatory, and it prepared me for the difficulty the following year. She's funny and even though her class is difficult, it was worth it in the end. The lengthy homework helped me elaborate. Now, it helps me be clear and concise on my papers. Thanks Brannum!<3
