Does not teach at all its up to you to figure everything out. Barely teaches topics and lecures way too fast. Tests are difficult and are on stuff that we barley learned. Class is easy if you do your homework.

Mrs. Schmalz is a great teacher. Sometimes her lessons are unclear and the students have to figure it out amongst themselves, but most of the times she teaches well. She is VERY harsh in following class rules (e.g tardies, drinking non water, eating, phone), so be careful. Overall I really like her and it's funny how excited she gets over holidays and special events.

Just had her last year,be honest I think she's not a bad teacher at all. Taking point off, is just like 2 ,or 3 point if you talk too much or forget to bring something, reasonable. And if you have question, ask her, then she will explain until you understand( that's what I did) Good teacher overall!!!

People talk about how "easy" Ms. Schmalz is, that's because she doesn't teach anything!!! She grazes over the surface topics, but her test are on much deeper ones.

She's adorable and really fun, but I think she's too easy. It's easy to do barely any work and get an A in the class.

She is good but really picky about small things, and takes off points without thinking twice. It gets rather annoying because her grading system is based on points so the loss of five points makes a big difference. Other than that she is funny, sweet, and teaches pretty well. If you goto her during tutorial she really helps you out! :)

shes cool, nice, and funny sometimes, but she cant teach for beans. It all ends to reading the book yourself and taking your own notes.

Love her and her two voices. Easy class, usually no more than 30 mins of homework like 2-3 times a week. Tests easy, she's pretty helpful. Interesting class, good teacher.

Ultimately her class comes down to copying notes from the book. Very boring class.

Very strict teacher. Tries to teach the material, but it all comes down to just memorizing it by yourself.

She's such a cool teacher. Her lectures are extremely short, and never plays favorites. It's really easy to get an A, since her grades aren't weighted, so if you have full points participation per week, it could boost you from a 90 to 100%. Seriously. (: i never studied for any of the tests (they are all scantron if you have Biology). you'll love her.

Bah, worst teacher ever! Very unclear, bad with directions. Annoying class, has no control over some classes. Picks favorites, lets some students get away with things while letting down those that really want to learn something. Got her? Try to survive.

Very nice teacher but goes way too fast on the lectures and they are very boring. She teaches a lot of stuff we will never use in our life. she should take a survey and see who is going into bio/med and if no1 is then dont teach us crap. I dont have time.
