Ms. Liem's biology class tests a deep understanding even beyond AP, which seems inconsistent in difficulty level when compared to other science classes (Physics, Chemistry). My biggest complaint is that Ms. Liem is more concerned with adhering to a rigid curriculum and grading system rather than promoting engagement and interest, which I've noticed turns many students away from learning. This is not to say she's a bad teacher – just beware that she makes biology mundane with lots of busy work.
she made us do everything ourselves. she never told us what she expected in our work. and she didn't tell us the homework and we had to rely on the cycle sheet. she just lectured us the entire class.
she skips. EVERYWHERE. PLUS SHE SWINGS HER ARMS... she does not explain labs whatsoever, we are basically teaching ourselves. She has us take review test with button clickers and so far for the two re
Her skipping needs to stop. She always gives us three or more labs to do in class and never even explains HOW to do them. Does not explain anything and then we have a test the next class and basically
she teaches a horrible class. worst high school experience
She teaches you a lot and if you have her has a teacher, try to participate a lot and make her like you. It should help a lot.
She alwasy skips to turn off the lights :D. She's very helpful and informative, that is, if you're paying attention.
She is one of the best teachers I had. The stuff she teaches can be difficult but she'll help you. You will learn a lot from her. She is definitely the smartest person I know. She is very enthusias
Ms. Liem is a great teacher! The tests are quite challenging, but she teaches really well and is very helpful! She really enjoys what she is teaching (you can tell) and does terrific activities that h
Ms Liem is pretty cool. She is the real deal because she knows what she is talking about, went to Punahou, and just gets Bio. her class is hard and you shouldnt take it if your just trying to get an g
I LOVE Ms. Liem!!! Her class hard and you have to really work for your grade but it's well worth it! I learned a lot in her class and she's really enthusiastic about her subject. I even picked up some
Ms. Liem is incredibly knowledgeable in everything related to Biology. (In my opinion, she is the smartest woman I know - period.) However, intelligence doesn't necessarily mean kindness
never met a teacher more enthusiastic about her subject... she obviously knows and loves what she's doing and has great analogies... i learned so much!
hard grader/cirriculum, but a very, very good teacher. very knowledgable and experienced.
she is a wonderful teacher with a pretty easy class (for me) but her grading system is flawed and she is very bias... homework is worth WAY WAY WAY too much!
Knows her subject very well, but fails to motivate students not interested in the subject that much. She could consider redoing her teaching plans. But that said, work hard, pay attention, she's great
she's a hard grader but she's super awesome. i always have fun in her class and she has really creative and cool ways of teaching the material.
super hard teacher who treated her regular bio class like honors. but she knew her material and taught well
she jumps around from whiteboard to whiteboard... super enthusiastic. and knowledgable. bio honors was pretty darn hard though. she should teach ap bio too even though mrs. medrano is SUPER cool.
Good teacher but incredibly hard curriculum. Really helpful when you go in for extra help.
Outstanding and wonderful teacher, an even better person! Her teaching style is acting and she devotes all of her time into her job! She puts alot of effort into presentations!
i have to say, she is a good teacher. but she is a hard grader! she is nice but don't judge a book by its cover. she is strict when it comes to work
best science teacher ive ever had! really thourough and detailed lessons. she skips around the class and is so full of energy! really nice.
She is very detailed in everything she teaches, but she tends to go really fast on lessons
Really cool teacher. She skips to turn off the lights and her lessons are always thourough.
Prances around the room, but that's cool. Explains things really well and is always there to help, but really hard.
shes hard but is really willing to help if you ask. i loved having her for bio honors
Nice lady. EXTREMELY SMART AND KNOWLEDGABLE. But...she explains too much and often loses the class. The tests are too hard and they're not curved.
Great bio honors teacher. Grading very fair; if you work hard, you get good grades.
One of the most awesome teachers I've ever had. Grades harsh, but excellent teacher. Work a lot, learn a lot.
she's really helpful in understanding the material, especially her experiments we do. i learned a lot, and she made bio a lot moa interesting
ack. learn a lot...work a lot. I learned and am learning so much more from her than last semester....
She was my best science teacher ever! Clear, helpful, nice... she was a hard grader but helped us to reach for higher goals.
her class is really boring and difficult sometimes, but otherwise its okay
she's the koolest teacher ever. yes, hard...but still kool
Greatest Bio teacher, grades hard but fairly, made science my fave subject
She's cool. but a seems a little nervous while teaching.
A lot of work, but u learn so much! Excellent teacher, makes Bio awesome.
ya, she iz cool and funny...outside of class of course :D
shes a good, enthusiastic teacher, but too hard a grader
Shes not THAT bad. Anime fan, you can kinda identify with her if you're into it
awesome teacher, dunno why so many peeps didn't like her. she taught me so much
