Mrs. Dibble is such a nice person, but not a very strong teacher. She does not come across very clear when teaching. We watch alot of videos that dont help when preparing for a test.

Fire her. I had her for Chemistry last year, and I swear she's the worst teacher I've ever had. She literally teaches nothing and just shows videos. I really felt like the guy from the videos was more of my teacher than she was. I guess maybe the labs were okay, but simulation labs? COME ON!!! The tests, don't get me started. She never said what'd be on the test.
TL;DR The only learning you get is from reading the text book. If you want to know what'll be on the test, then too bad.

I love Joyce. I'm taking AP environmental science right now and it's a great class! There's barely any work. I don't read the book and still get B's on the tests. Also, tests aren't a big part of our grade so I still have an A! She's a really cool person and if she likes you you'll really enjoy her class.

Read the book or you will fail, ignore whatever she says because it is all useless information. All of the points are on the tests, JUST READ THE TEXTBOOK and do well on the test and you will pass.

She's a nice person and is very smart, but lazy when it comes to teaching. We do computer simulations without having learned the subject- basically relying on Google searches to teach the topics to ourselves. We were doing a simulation, and I looked at her computer because she had her ear buds in, and she was watching cat videos on YouTube.The final isn't even about material covered in class, she said no one has ever passed it so she curves the test a lot.

So pretty much she is a very smart lady, but when it comes to teaching and helping, lets face it, she doesnt know whats going on, she is lazy, and her lectures dont help one bit. And when it comes to the test, most of the kids get 'D' or 'C' so she curves it so much to make it seem they get good grade. But really if all the students do horrible shouldnt she realize that its she teaching skills.

Ms. Dibble is much better than most seem to think. Her lectures can sometimes be boring, though if you want to learn chemistry and do well on the tests, then definitely pay attention and read the book. She is always willing to help and answer questions. She covers more material during the year than Mr. Montbriand, so having her as a teacher can be beneficial if you are trying to get into AP Chem.

I love Mrs. Dibble. Had her for chemistry. She is one of the nicest teacher I know and her class is easy and not stressful which is a good thing. Unlike most other teachers, she's really relaxed... both with her grading, her homework policies, and her classroom policies. Honestly, I wish there were more teachers like her, as she permits you to learn at your own pace without a stressful workload. Those who give her low ratingsjust don't want to learn and don't care about science. Sigh, it's unfortunate.

She doesn't really teach, she tells you to do something and if you ask for help she tells you to read these little green books. Plus these green books we don't get to use out side of class so you do it in class or fail. But she is easy becusae she never checks your work so you could write something random and she'd give you 100% but thats only on notes and workbook on labs she runs through it but tests she is stricked. but shes not the worse teacher i had so shes ok.

Not that bad of a teacher. Covers a lot of material. Learned quite a bit from her class even though her lectures were somewhat bleh. And you guys who give her a low rating can't get a decent grade (e.g. an A) in her class are clearly idiots. Learning in that class is very easy with or without lectures. Easiest class.

Eh, her class is an easy 'A'. But she needs to loosen up a bit. Also, she spaces out a lot. Her class will be very boring unless you have friends there. Don't even bother paying attention to the boring, monotonous lectures/movies/whatever, just read the textbook if you want to learn chemistry and get an A in her class.

She teaches a do-able class if you get used to her style of teaching you can definitely get As if you tried. Not a teacher to learn from. Learn from Mr. Montbriand if you want to learn chem

She is funny, laid back and nice, but not so great at teaching. She does one powerpoint on a chapter and then you have to learn the rest yourself. Its a tough class.

she's a nice person but not the best teacher. you'll learn more about computers than any chemistry in her class. which would not be too bad except her tests are very difficult.

god help you if you take this class. YOU WON'T LEARN ANYTHING! she can't teach and her answer to every question is "because that's how we do it in chemistry!" or "you've already learned about that! read the book!" instead of learning, you will make a website on "Think.com" and do some nice powerpoints. what a waste of my time!!!
