Although she is a good person, is not an effective teacher for Chem H. If you talk with her, you'll find that she's a kind woman, but her teaching has many flaws. Firstly, her idea of a lesson is showing a foggy powerpoint and then giving us worksheets. Secondly, her tests cover nothing from her lessons. There is no way to prepare, and everyone performs poorly. Lastly, her grading is pretty subjective. So get on her good side, kiss-up, and hopefully she'll spare you a point or two when you fail.

Ms. Moore has a low quality of clarity and and knowledge. The students can clearly observe that she chooses favorites and believe that a C is perfectly fine grade. In a community where an A grade is the standard bar set, this is awfully frustrating to all of those who have her as a teacher. Her attitude shows depreciation and her teaching skill is not helpful at all. If you have Ms. Moore be ready to learn on your own.

doesnt even use the textbook and her bs "interactive" notebook that everyone rushes to finish the day before she checks it is absolutely useless. she doesnt really teach and takes other teachers materials like powerpoints or tests. ive noticed shes has an affinity towards asian girls and the "cool" indian kids. i understand more material from talking with my table mate for 10 minutes than i do in the entire 50 minutes of class. if i could rate 0/10 i would.

I had Moore for freshman bio and she's easily the worst teacher I've ever had. She clearly wanted to be teaching chem and she tested on material we hadn't covered. She often contradicted herself, and many of her students had to go to the other bio teachers for help. She's only knowledgable about some units, and she spent a way too much time on those units. She basically gave us info to memorize but tested us on our "understanding" of the topic. Your best bet is to switch out or get a tutor.

The biggest problem is she doesn't teach. We had a lot of tests without study materials. Sometime she even tested things we hadn't covered. We have been given study sheets without answers, checklists with untaught concepts - they are not even in textbooks! She doesn't give home works either so you have no idea what are covered, what are not. If you have her next year, run! (ps. I think because of her, all the bio private tutors are making $$$$ in our area! :-) )

horrible teacher. favorites a ton, her test are crap and don't test understanding at all. doesn't teach as well. a parent filed a lawsuit against her for “bullyism, hatemotivated
behavior, discrimination, retaliation, academic fraud, lack of ethics, and the defrauding
of CA state and federal tax payers". pretty much sums up her as a person and teacher.

Has two "versions" of the test to prevent cheating when they are really just the same test one in purple one in goldenrod she gave me a bad test score because she used the wrong "key" sure

At the beginning, Ms. Moore graded labs/CERs strangely and had confusing tests. But by the second semester, perhaps it was due to all the complaints, she taught amazingly well(everything was clear and concise in her powerpoint lectures) and was able to answer all the questions I had.The tests also became easier and understandable. She's one of those teachers that you know you can rely on for both academic and non-academic help. Just listen and participate! I got an A on both semesters.

She used to be a weird teacher but now, especially in second semester she has gotten really good. She is actually a good teacher now, but you have to understand she may get a little frustrating when grading quizzes or alignments. She only looks for a few set of words and if you don't have them there goes the questions, even if you know what you are talking about. Thankfully she tells us these words during class and emphasizes them quite well, So take NOTES :D

Mrs. Moore seemed horrible in the beginning of the year. Like, I thought I would hate her class, and from things I had heard before, I was terrified from the start. And at first, she did kind of suck a little. But gradually, extremely gradually, she started growing on me. She's actually very nice and helps if you ask, and yeah her sense of humor's a little whack, but it's actually a bit endearing (though maybe I only feel that way since I have an Indian mother). Anyways, Moore isn't that bad. :P

I had Ms. Moore for Freshman Biology. She gives lots of homework, and then re-reviews with powerpoints. She is inconsistent with her work expectations. She often contradicts herself and says the textbook is wrong, probably because she doesn't really know the information well. She provides study guides for her tests, but her tests often do not reflect her guides, so be prepared for anything. She definitely favors certain students and ethnic groups. Overall, Ms. Moore was the worst teacher ever.

I think Ms. Moore was okay at teaching(I had her freshman year for bio). She was clear on assignments but could be very boring and unclear during lectures(she told us her passion is chem not bio). However, bio itself was an interesting topic for me and the class environment was also very engaging so I liked her class a lot. Bio was paradise compared to chem. I did hear from other students that she was inconsistent in dealing with students but to me she was always very nice.

I'm a freshman, and Mrs. Moore is my bio teacher. Honestly, I think she's a terrible teacher. She gives us way too much homework everyday (over an hour), and all the worksheets she gives us has material we haven't learned. She expects us to learn it ourselves, do the homework, and not get any questions wrong. She then teaches the stuff that we learned by ourselves the next day, which totally ruins the point of actually teaching. I hope I won't fail her class this year.

Ms. Moore is truly a terrible teacher. She might be a nice person I guess, but she honestly should not be a teacher. She contradicts herself all the time. She tells us something won't be on a quiz or a test, and then puts that thing on the quiz/test, something nobody has studied for. She clearly has favorites and if you are doing poorly, she rarely helps. If you ask her for help to raise your grade, she tells you to buy a book of practice problems and says you need to do those to pass. :(

She has made my son's life miserable in chem honors class. She is unwilling to work with kids or explain things when they ask. She makes up her own grading system that makes no sense. She teaches out of books from her native country as opposed to only using books that are sanctioned by the district. She tests on things that she hasn't taught the students. I will be glad when the school year is over. Sadly, my son has not gotten the education in Chemistry that all the kids deserve.
