Ms. Schulman was one of the top two teachers my daughter had in HS. She ended up taking AP Chem even though she doesn't need it, because Ms. Schulman's fascination with science is absolutely contagious! I am frustrated and angry that she was transferred and that the school would not say where she was sent. They lost a true educator.
Knows the material herself incredibly well, however she is a very poor instructer and cannot teach a classroom. She does not know how to convey the material to the students so that they have a deep understanding of the lessons. And the class is weighted so that 90% of your grade depends on Labs, Tests, and Quizzes. The other 10% is incredibly time consuming "check-assignments" (aka worksheets and other classwork or homework). Thus, if you fail a test, your grade plummits!!
She knows an extraordinary amount about chemistry, but she can't convey it very well. Unless you have a previous knowledge of chemistry, this is a difficult class
Understanding the material in this class is more important than just doing homework for the sake of doing so. It is more important to ace the tests and labs to get on her "good list".
Great teacher. Energetic class with lots of sarcastic humor that is relevant. Definetly a class everyone needs to take.
Just make sure she understands that you actually want to learn the material. You really do have to try hard in this class, but it pays off because she is a decent teacher and a brilliant lady.
If your not good at math, DON'T take her class. Take notes from overhead and do practice problems. She only helps the students she likes (which are those who get A's). Need to do well on tests.
I graduated years ago and I can tell you that Ms. Schulman is one of those special teachers you will fondly remember 10 or 15 years later. Through elem, middle, high school, college and graduate school few teachers stand out like she does. Do yourself a favor, if you have a chance to take a class from her- DO IT.
Schulman is absolutely the best teacher I had in high school - she's awesome, she's fun, and if you take her class seriously, you'll learn a lot.
she is a very intelligent lady however she needs to break it down to high school level so more of her students can understand
She's a brilliant person who knows what she's talking about, but it seems like she can't get the point across to her students. She's cool though!
ChemistryGT class is hard with lots of work,but shes a fun teacher and tell odd jokes that supposedly relates to Chem.
Cool teacher but you'll get your fair share of work. She's tough but fair.
She's is awesome...good teacher right there! I've learned a lot and it's one of my few classes that are actually challenging. Rock on, Ms. Schulman!!
A great teacher for advanced students. She can see through most of the tricks we have for slacking off, and she's really committed to helping us learn.
