She tries but not only does she word questions very poorly, she likes to try and be tricky. This misses the point of learning. Also, her lectures are very ADD, she has ppt slides with no information

i think our team never really liked her until we actually had biology in academy. she pushes you hard during middle school and you think it's the worst thing in the world, but she really prepares you

Many students who did well in her class that did not get As in high school science, and are not even taking honors or AP classes, and VV. Tone down the difficulty; it is unnecessary and not in depth.

5 times harder than other 8th grade science teachers. Super fast-paced. No offense, but her typed notes are confusing and they have typos. Too hardcore, but i guess it helps?
