Now that I am a senior, I realize what a horrible teacher Ms Runice is/was. You are thought to memorize lots of material, but she really does not going into any kind of intellectual depth. The textbook was as good as she was. In fact the textbook was more interesting.

She can actually teach and she overteaches, but you can actually understand everything. She gives great notes and her tests are pretty easy if you pay attention to her homeworks. Finals will be easy.

While many people I know hate her, I found her a good teacher. My previous teacher had been simply awful, but Runcie managed to actually TEACH me. Hard, and not nice if you talk in class, but very clear and concise.

She's a pretty hard teacher, though the only time she speaks loudly is during her lectures. I barely ever hear her when she announces due dates and exceptions for the HW and stuff, and sit near the front!

She's by far the hardest Living Environment teacher. She gives long notes and limits questions. The homework is mind-blowing. But the result is usually very well trained students.

Although she's very strict with labs, you'll get the most out of her class. She'll repeat something at least three times to makes sure it's understood. Guaranteed to pass Regents
