I had the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Phebus being a 99 grad and can tell most of the trolls on this site that it is probably your inability to grasp the concepts of physics that leads to your disdain for her. If you would have took your time and actually cared for your teachers instead of just seeing them as an authority figure that you must automatically rebel against, you might have learned something. She guided me into my love for engineering and now am a licensed professional engineer.

People either love her or hate her. In my opinion physics with her wasn't too bad. You learn a lot which will come in handy later on in college. Follow directions, pay attention, and be nice to her an

With Ms. Phebus, she is just not one of my favorite teachers. She doesn't teach the material too clearly and doesn't answer questions. She gets mad at you pretty easily, it felt like.

I love Mrs. Phebus! All the people that don't are just cruel. I took Physics II just for Phebus, and the class was so chill. I'm totally gonna miss it next year. I'm def coming to visit! - M.S.

She can't teach at all. I was a straight A student untill she screwed me over and her class wouldn't be that hard if she tried to help her students. Switch to Coach Brooks ASAP!

Her class wasn't so bad, unfortunately she doesn't understand how to explain the material in a way to kids that dont naturally understand it. Kinda her way or the highway

Ms. Phebus makes physics understandable--and that's not easy. Seeing how useless some other Physics teachers are made me appreciate her more.
