I do not understand at all why she teaches normal courses. She expects so much for a non honors or ap class. You can see nice sides of her, but goddamn she should stick to only teaching smart kids because she explodes on your average student for being to “slow” and often gets frustrated. Unless you are the selected few that are heavily favored because you are funny or extremely smart. If you get her for chem (which she teaches 4 periods of) good luck
Great teacher, but you have to be willing to do the work! Fair grading, with no double penalty and much partial credit! Will learn a lot
Ms. Kim is my favorite teacher. Not because of her teaching skills, which might not be favored by many, but because she truly wants to put as many fundamentals of Physics as possible into your brain. She teaches what you signed up for, efficiently and completely. Her class is not easy unless you put in a little time & a lot of effort. She's a teacher who actually teaches, something that children these days won't understand because they wanted an easy A by doing nothing. Emphasis on "children".
She can be hard to deal with, but she actually lays the fundamentals well. As a college student now, i understand why she was so hard on us. If you plan to do something physics related in college, like engineering, know that Ms. Kim got you.
Ms. Kim isn't the best, but she isn't the worst. She's generally willing to help those who try, but the average student should be able to understand the material with good lecture notes and actually completing homework problems without an solutions key.
ms.kim plz stop for the love of god u r a nice ladi tho
well, Mrs. Kim, is one of the very few teachers at our school that are trying to educate us. Not try to give some works so that we can get credits and learn. If students' goals are to prepare for college, then having a bit of a talk with Mrs. Kim is definitely the best advice I could ever give. But if your goal is to get a good grade, just shut up and do your work. She's not gonna yell at you for doing your work. But if that doesn't work, go get help from Mrs. Kim. she's always there to help.
I agree with the person below me. She plays favorites. She'll yell at someone who is hardworking and smart, but will talk normally to someone who never does their homework. She seems to know a lot about physics, but she's not very easy because she can't explain concepts very well, so it's a self study class. It also seems like she wants to make you feel bad. For example, in class, she'll extrapolate the bad qualities in you and tell you she won't write you a letter of recommendation. Avoid her
BEST TEACHER EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHE TEACHES VERY CLEARLY!!!!!!!!!! i guess one bad thing is that her tests are hard.... but just study for them and you guys will be fine....... in my opinion, she is the best teacher i had at west........... its a fun class too!~
She is only nice to attractive boys. Go in at lunch and get her to like you and she will give you an a. She is ny least favorite teacher this year
Ms. Kim gets a bad rap for being strict and refusing to curve grades. If you're taking AP Physics, She will help you whenever she has time (she's often in her room before school and at lunch as well as after school) but I recommend you start looking into a tutor right now, preferably someone who's already taken her AP class. Also, the grades for AP are all shifted 10% down (i.e. 80% = A). If you're taking regular, prepare for a merciless grueling class that will totally prepare you for AP.
Half of my friends like her and half of us don't at all! She makes it impossible to do well in her class. It really seems like she's out to get some people.
I had her for physics and she was one of my favorite teachers. She is very knowledgeable in the subject and is always helpful. The subject is hard, but she teaches very well. Very fun class!
she is the best if you just do your homework. always hang out with her during lunch and after school. very good teacher but teaches a tough course
I am not here to judge Ms. Kim, only to point out that the person three spots below me does not know how to spell counseling.

Ms. Kim is great. I started her class not knowing anything about Physics and seriously considering dropping the class. She helped me understand the material and was always available to help. You must work hard, though. She is the best!!!
She's an okay teacher, but if you don't get something (which happens often in PhysAP) she doesn't know how to explain it a different way and just yells at you for not paying attention.
Excellent at presenting material, but to often mixes and unneeded social element into the class. She is not open to criticism, and can be quite incorrigible when critiqued. She does get the job done.
I don't know how people like this teacher. She favors people..
Ms. Kim is my favorite teacher at West High. She is so cool! I have her for physics, and if you honestly do your work and try hard, she'll like you. She just has some quality that makes you like her, even though she can be mean or snappy sometimes. I <3 Physics!
chem. is a hard subject but kim keeps us laughing. "what's wrong with you??" lol
OMG!! MISS KIM!! SHE IS THE BEST TEACHER EVER!!! I've only had her for a quarter but i love her and our chem class just rocks!!! We have lots of fun dont we?!!
SUCH AN AWESOME TEACHER!! Her one and only chem class has a blast in her class!!! She is sooo funny and there is alot of h/w but it prepares u 4 the quizzes and tests. GR8 TEACHER!
She is so awesome. Inspired me so much. She helped me reach for the stars.
MS KIM ROCKS....BEST CHEM TEACHER...TOO BAD SHE DOESNT TEACH CHEM AP ANY MORE
Ms. Kim is honestly the best AP teacher I've had. She's always there for you, as long as you ask. I've never felt so prepared for an AP test! (She ROCKS too!)
yay! ms kim is awesome =) whoever gave the 1's obviously doesnt know what they are talking about hahahahahah
Ugh! she always picks on me and I'm doing nothing but trying to learn and her class is mega hard, I'm thankful that I don't have to be her ta because she yells
Ms. Kim is very nice and so helpful. She still helps me sumtimes w/college chem.
