Great teacher and the science of biology is fascinating, I just wish I appreciated it then as I do now. I did alright in the class by occasionally studying, though I wish I still had some skills I learned in that class today. During dissection week, my group was the only one to achieve extra credit by removing the pig's brain. My twisted buddy was rolling it around like silly putty while everyone else was freaking out over dissecting fish.

Great teacher, but wasn't the coolest teacher. She wasn't the funniest either and only had one joke. She was serious and cared for you if you cared about chemistry. I'm glad I had her because now I'm going to majors in chemical engineering.

I thought Mrs. Kierny was a great teacher. Ya, she's strict.. So what? I'm glad she's a teacher she puts her heart into her job. She loves to help and loves to feel like she did something to help you. If you've never gotten in trouble with her, its because you respected her. She may be tough but thats life. Glad she's a teacher. Andrew H.S benefited greatly!!

Was never so happy to be done with a class. Notes had nothing to do with the book, she only helped the few select people she liked.

everyone hates her, because they expect to be handed everything in school to pass. Mrs. Kierny can be brutal at times, but she is extremely willing to help each and every student to understand what she is teaching. She is also the reason that I'm majoring in Chemistry.

Mrs. Kierny is a great teacher, and she prepares you for college. Chem is not an easy subject, but she has great notes, and makes class fun. If you pay attention in class and do HW you will do fine!

Sometimes the material's boring, but she's a great teacher. She's also VERY efficient, and always there to help before and after school. She's incredibly fair in grading, and great at explaining.

She is always there to help you if you don't understand something. Her handouts are very helpful. You should keep them for a reference in college. She is the best teacher that I had. She made Chemistry easy for me to understand. She would always explain hard concepts until everyone understood.

Difficult teacher but very helpful. And she lectures A LOT. Save all the handouts. It is nice to have them a couple years down the road (for future classes).

If she likes you, you are golden. If she doesn't like how you color pictures of cells, she doesn't help you very much.
