She is way too picky on labs and corrections, she expects us to copy down almost exactly what she wrote or else she doesn't give us points.

Oh god. Bio with her was soooooo boring. The notes are just 10000000 hours of fill in the blank. I did learn a lot, but that was mostly from studying outside of her class

Wow, she throws away all your notes from the first semester which is a major problem if you don't remember something in chem. her class is really easy as are her tests, but boring and unoriginal

Some people don't like her, but they're the ones that don't do much work. Chem won't ever be easy for me, but if I do the work I know I'll have a chance.

Interesting teacher (I love her light rules in class!) But turn in all hw on time!She goes off topic sometimes in class but it's no big deal. She still gets all the lessons done & we still all learn.

Ms. Nicholson is great teacher...she may make you do lots of stuff like hands on activities and homework, but in the end all that hard work is paid off.
