I've rarely gotten a bad grade from Ms. Philpotts. If you have it means you didn't go and talk to her.
Extremely helpful and knowledgeable! Best bio teacher ever!
Great teacher. We are learning SO MUCH more than the classes with the other Biology teacher, it's not even funny.
Ms. Philpotts is one of the nicest teachers I have had. I don't understand why all of you are hating on her with all the offensive jokes. She is highly knowledgeable of what she teaches, and will go out of the way just to re-explain her topic. Sometimes she is a bit unclear on the test topics, and goes very quickly, but as long as one reads and actively participates he will be fine. And whoever wrote the jaw joke should just get a life, honestly? It's not a nice thing to say.
She literally doesn't know anything. I took biology last year and although I study really hard I can only get 80s in her class. Her tests have nothing to do with the class and she makes up random facts that the textbook will contradict. To top it off, you basically have to relearn the SAT bio info because she doesn't teach us anything... And she relies on stolen powerpoints..
Ms. Philpotts is very nice and teaches very old-fashion (not that that is wrong). She never clearly states what she wants in her test, making it really hard to get a high grade
nice person, but nice teacher, but relies on power points which are stolen. also, whats the point of reading the book if all she is going to do is tell us taht the textbook is wrong AFTER we use the textbook info on the test?
Stole powerpoints off of the internet and used them to teach. When she didn't know the material, she would read the powerpoint word for word and then have a knowledgable classmate explain. Did not believe us when we told the truth; her truth was ALWAYS right. Very strict and very hard to learn from if you do not copy literally every single thing she puts on the board.
I love Ms. Philpotts. Many kids don't like her because she is pretty tough and they don't want to do the work. But i can assure you that she is very knowledgable and a great teacher
She was very helpful as a biology teacher. Only the kids in her class (basically) knew what they were doing. And we learnt SO MUCH MORE than the other classes.
