Although she can be a little scary for the first week, she's an awesome person. She teaches well, her tests are hard, but in the long run, you come out knowing biology.

If you have her hang in there the first few weeks. She has this pseudo intimidation technique to scare people away. No matter how mean she can be she teaches well and can be funny.

Thankfully, I was on her good side in ninth grade bio. I thought she was a very tough but very good teacher. She loves to mess with her kids' heads but it's mostly in fun, and she's a great person.
