Lois Houlihan was the best teacher I had in grade school. She was the reason I went on to college as a pharmacology major. I was one of the kids she made fun of, but only because she knew my potential and she was sometimes frustrated when I wouldn't show it.

Mrs. Houlihan is AWESOME. She jokes around A LOT, but don't take anything personally. She is super connected with her students and is always happy to help. Her class is VERY challenging. If you're not going to work hard, don't even bother being there. Also, make sure you STUDY for her tests and quizzes. She usually gives a quiz each Friday. She's always telling us extra AP things which is cool to know. If you are polite to her and listen in class, she will LOVE you.

Horrible. Self study if possible. Does not teach proper material efficiently and does the problem for you. No sense of what is inappropriate territory and seems to get a kick out of insulting certain people. Has her favorites for sure. Attempts to make herself funny by insulting and potentially hurting their feeling. Highly recommend you not to take this class with her ... The it somewhere else. You'll save yourself a lot of trouble.

She's helpful if you meet with her one on one but I can't seem to follow when she teaches. She also makes fun of students a lot and feels free to announce people's grades to the class. I don't think she's a bad person per se, but she frequently crosses into territory that I consider inappropriate.

Love HER! She helped with very difficult problems. She is willing to meet students at lunch. When I didnt understand a lab, she did the questions with me.

She's pretty nice. Kind of the chatty type, you know, always looking for a way to bond with the students a little bit. Often talks about the dollar store.
