Mrs Manwell doesn't really teach much...her course lacks structure and there is never a clear schedule. She also doesn't cover topics fully in one day, then she gives worksheets due in 2 weeks, and then a test. She doesnt do much with the curricculum

She's a really nice person but she can't really teach. It's kind of confusing. If you have her first, she lets you get breakfast on break.

She is a good person. Despite what people say about her, she can be funny and kind. The problem is she is a terrible, confusing teacher. Her tests are so so hard. She doesn't help at all. But I disagree with all the posts about her being mean.

She is definitely one of the worst teachers I've ever had. She never teaches in class and she expects us to get good grades anyways. She loses her temper so easily and can often be found yelling at a student. She expects us to know so much on stuff she hasn't covered at all. In our own research, she expects us to know everything that's going on even though we haven't learned about what to do. Worst teacher everr.

She can seem a little stuffy or dry, but she's really knowledgeable. Students who know what they're doing are well-off, those who just bumble around are not going to have a good time.

A very good teacher and clearly loves biology However you have to be very very smart She can seem mean at times but thats because shes old and sick of having to deal with stupid kids (i would be to) B

A TON of work, but she prepares you well for the final. She may seem a little mean, but she really isn't. She expects class participation!

Her tests are a little harder than other bio teachers and her class dull at times, but she can definitely teach. Her molecular bio class is really interesting.

People tend to not pay attention in class. If you have any interest in biology, Manwell's a great teacher, you'll learn a lot and do well on finals/regents/bio sat.

lab reports and tests are pretty killer. do well in her class if you do the homework and really pay attention to her slideshows. not the nicest, but easily one of the more knowledgeable bio teachers!

do good on her tests, and you'll do good. participation, as always, is a plus. she'll answer your questions, most of the time. just don't fool around in the hallways or she'll yell at you. (lab reports are a nightmare.)
