She's alright. Just study for the double tests she gives and just bear with her. She's annoying but if you have to take her for health, you'll survive. Easy B. Ace the tests and it's an easy A.

She's not that bad. Her personality is ludricously annoying, but her class is easy. She barely collects homework and you can get an A on a test just by looking through the chapter once.

her class is pretty easy over all, she makes you do a lot of work out of the book at first but never collects it. she makes you do pointless notes, but the tests are REALLY easy shes just crazy, and lets just say...difficult to deal with.

I try so hard to not dislike Keyak.. but it's kinda impossible. It takes her about 15 minutes to start class because she's always having difficult time dealing with reamits for some reason. In the last few weeks of the semester, she gave us 4 tests/week!Unfortunately her guest speakers teach better.

She does not teaach much, not explaining the concepts and not giving lectures. She just tell her students to read the health chapters, than give multiple choice test. Sometimes two chapter tests at one time. She take off points on lilttle things. So....your choice!

Keyak takes Health class too seriously and makes you do useless activities and outlines and whatnot. Then she makes a big deal about covering your health book so it doesn't get damaged and other ridculous things.

she's really really really picky, and takes points off tests, homework, etc. for the smallest things like forgetting to write what reg you're in and stuff like that. A LOT of outlining which she doesn't even read but you have to turn it in.her tests are pretty easy but she's very picky about a coding system so we don't get a lot of time to actually take the test... a GOOD thing about this class is that if you sit in the back, you can do homework for other teachers and she won't notice :)

why is she so picky?! she's like da rosa, except MORE picky about stuff. if you want to do outlines, review questions, video notes YOUR OWN WAY, i suggest u avoid her at all cost. don't risk it. handwritten outlines, including almost EVERY SINGLE picture there are. it's so confusing what you SHOULD and SHOULDN'T include in your outlines. after you spend over 5 hours on them, she doesn't even read it throughly. she DOES take her class too seriously. i mean, it's just health.

she treats you like you're five. took an entire class to show us how to cover our books. she explains everything waaaayy too thoroughly. you MUST go to class each day. she will keep asking you for a readmit or parent note until she gets it. otherwise, she won't let you take the next test. health ed is common sense, so the tests are mc and not hard. she gives lots of hw tho.

I AM WARNING YOU, PLLLEEAASSEEE DO NOT TAKE HER, right before a test, she took 20 minutes to lecture, and we only had 20 min to take a 2 part test, and when i finished early, she did not let me go early, instead, she held the entire class after for 5 minutes, and almost 90% of people were done already...

She talks ALOT. She is fake-nice. Definately takes her job way too serious kind of up-tight too.. she made me go to her class in the LAST DAY of SCHOOL -________-. LAST DAY OF SCHOOL. Never did any of her hw, never studied for her class, never opened my book, got a C. =\. Is that good or bad? I don't know you decide. But remember.. she's evil.

she takes her job way too seriously, and that's basically all i have to say. she is nice but in a really fake way. there's tons and tons of busy work for health, it's actually ridiculous. and she talks too much. the good thing is that it's really easy to do other homework during her class (but then you are left with lots of health hw.) in conclusion, she's not horrible but the work sucks. by the way this whole review was about health, i haven't had her for pe.
