I had her for both my freshman and sophomore years, and she is a teenager at heart. Sometimes she can be a savage when she roasts kids who fool around in her class, but she also is a great biology teacher. She's probably the hardest grading HBIO teacher but she is still a great teacher, just don't get on her bad side cuz that's really scary. Also really sassy, but she converses with students easily. Also don't sleep and pay attention because she will totally roast in class you if you do.

She talks too much about herself and students who are failing honors bio she will put you down to regular.
Not a really good teacher compared to Forsberg.

Great teacher, but she really played favorites; always went easier on the jocks and popular kids, which annoyed me beyond belief. She was really funny and I definitely learned a lot, but frankly the way she acted was awful.

Solid teacher who knows her stuff. Her ego kind of gets annoying. The whole 'I am better than everyone' attitude gets old very quickly. She does care about her students (ad nauseum). Her favoritism is also exhausting.

I don't like bio that much, not that it isnt a complete joke or anything. Doc Mock made the class fun even though its a boring subject. She also likes to be "the popular teacher" and "the nice teacher that teaches that hard class"

I liked her, but I guess that's cause I sat upfront and so it seemed like she'd talk more to the people in front and therefore like those people better. Still - bio was easy and i liked that she got off topic, even if it was corny.
