I had Mrs. Dinota for AP Chem and I have to say she is among the top 5 teachers I've ever had. She will get explain stuff as much as you need and she will help you whenever you need it but, eventually she expects you to learn it on your own. I'm flat out going to tell you this here though. In AP Chem reading the textbook and doing your homework will directly correlate to your grades so if you fail a test that's on you. Overall if you're willing to put in the work you'll be fine with Mrs. Dinota.

Mrs. Dinota is my favorite teacher I have ever had. I had her for 10th grade Honors Chemistry and am currently in her 11th grade AP Chem class. She always is there to help, she is so knowledgeable, she's easy going, she's kind, and she has an awesome sense of humor. No doubt in my mind says that she deserves anything less than a perfect rating.

If you plan on taking chem in college, take AP Chem. You'll be able to sleep through chem 101 and part of 102 and get good grades. Nothing she has ever taught me has failed me yet.

I got all A's in Honors Chem, but got C's and D's in AP Chem, but got a 4 on the AP test, so be careful. She can be harsh,but a great teacher all the same. NHS- she's strict and doesn't take any bull from anyone

Yells when the ENTIRE class doesn't get something. Should spend more time on that instead of letting us struggle.
