Very spiteful, bitter teacher on a vendetta against all non-athletes. Friendly to athletes in season. Can't admit to personal error. Poor communications skills. Does not foster healthy relations

Mrs. Geesman is a very good teacher. If you fail a test you should go and get help! She will help you out if you show some effort that you want to do better.

I just want to say that this lady is my grandmother, and I'm proud of it. She has always loved teaching and will alwyas lover her students. if your kind to her she'll be kind back. If you know what your doing then you should have no problem.

If your the kind of student who needs to look at your notes to help you learn, then you're screwed. The notes she writes down never make any sense. She is pretty nice though. And I do agree with there being stange things on tests that we never discussed.

Not just for this class but does anyone else think they should raise the standards for honors classes? If you don't learn fast and you have to study a whole lot to pass tests, DON'T TAKE HARD CLASSES! Realize your inferiority to the intelligent!

seems to be a little up tight, im in homeroom and she is always worried about making us work even if we dont have anything to do, also she was my bio teacher, she'd teach us about cells and test us on motorcycle mechanics.

Everyone who complains about this class being so hard, maybe you should actually read the book and do your homework. This class is easy!!!!

Mrs. Geesman is really tough, but she's an excellent teacher. Biology honors is a tough course, maybe some people should have reconsidered taking it. It's nothing worse than I expected, and I rather enjoy it. Her class is very hard, but you learn a lot.

The class isn't all that hard if you go home and study which you don't even really need you'll do fine. All you have to do is memorize facts. She is a good teacher and explains everything more than enough for even the most inferior minded to understand.
