Without question the worst class I've ever taken. If you do not understand, don't ask questions. She'll get angry at you and dislike you. If you don't understand the material on a test, you'd better hope you can guess well, because she won't review. If you have a 92.99 at the end of the year, it'll be an A-, despite your pleading for her to bump it. She'll tell you she thinks it is a "fair" grade. Not helpful, easily offended, very unclear.

I couldn't understand her teaching or accent for the entire year. Anytime anyone would ask for help, she'd get really frustrated and expect us to know it already. It didn't matter how hard I tried, I didn't understand anything. So glad i'm done with Chemistry.

She has good intentions, but she gets mad about people asking questions, because she thinks you weren't paying attention. But at the same time, she's like, "if you dont understand, ask a question." And when she does answer you, GOOD LUCK trying to understand (not because of her accent, which isn't bad). DO ALL OF THE THINGS YOU GET ASSIGNED. She will collect a lot of them, and often times you won't know which ones.

I love her! I'm sure she hates my guts cause I'm a slacker, but if you can understand her through her accent (which isn't that bad) she explains things really well. Really hard, but worth it.

i'm suprised no one's mentioned her heavy accent, the first quarter is spent trying to figure out what she's saying. Doesnt matter how good of a teacher she is if you cant understand her.

She's different than most teachers, but that's what makes her good. If you're failing chemistry, it's because you're not studying and you're lazy. It's not meant to be a skate class where you can bs the homework and try to do well on the quizzes. I LOVE YOU DR. DEU!

Okay...so I had her last year for honors and now I have her for AP. If you are taking AP, DO the summer assignment, it gets you 20 bonus pts if you have it the first day of class. AP is HARD so only take it if you were REALLY good in chem 1, trust me...

How ignorant of people, criticizing her accent. You get a bad grade in Chem if you don't apply yourself. It's a hard class. Dr. Deu is an EXCELLENT teacher.

the only people who really think she's that bad do not try hard enough. don't be afraid to ask questions. the more you understand, the less you need to study.
