Knows what she's talking about, but her method of teaching a new subject is to stare at the board and talk through her writing. can be hard to follow sometimes. I wouldn't tell you to switch to a new teacher if you had her, but don't expect a really outstanding time in the class.

Amy Lynn may know what she's doing for the most part and is pretty good at explaining it but she is definitely the meanest teacher I've ever had. Don't ever try to correct her even if she is very wrong, or she will glare at you. One day, she asked the class a question and no one knew the answer (I was in a class of only 9 people) so she completely flipped out. She started criticizing each of us one at a time and some of us even started crying, she didn't care she was so mad at us for no reason.

Ms.Debonis is easily one of the most intelligent person that I have ever met. It can be a little hard to understand everything that she teaches, but she encourages you to seek her out if you have questions. Definitely not a teacher that is going to hold you hand but that's for the best since I know that will help prepare me for college.

She was overall sweet! She tried hard for the kids and cared. Don't push her buttons, she is not afraid to snap back. Class was kinda hard, but she was always available for help and always offered up question time!

Ok, (my name here), I'm not sure you're thinking of the same Mrs. Debonis, she was a great teacher. Yes the class was dull, but she was hilarious and rather informative.

I was actually a student of hers when she taught basic science at Sherwood Middle School, and I remember her being really cool with me. However, here comes science fair time, and as a way to overcome my nervousness, I volunteered to do my presentation first. When I was done with my presentation, she sat there with this dumbfounded look on her face, and exclaime...."(my name here), what IS this??? and started laughing at me" From that moment I realized exactly how low class she really was :))))

Your class is extremely boring, im sorry, but it is. You should teach more than play videos for us. And be nicer when people ask questions. Thanks!

Debonis is a horrible teacher. She doesn't teach the material, and is offended when you ask a question if she's covered it once. Some people need repetition.

Debonis is my favorite teacher. She's very laid back. I can't tell if physics is just easy or if shes just a really good teacher. She makes you want to be in the class, my first experience like this, eventhough I still do not attend class often, i get anA
