She is nice and knowledgeable, I'll give her that much... but very biased. I love her accent, but not when she's trying to teach because it's difficult to understand her, especially with her limited English vocab. Participation will be the death of you if you don't get her to notice that you exist. She will call on the SAME person MULTIPLE times even if that person has over 10 points while everyone else has 2. Survived first semester? Good, now count your blessings, then drop out for second

She is a very helpful teacher whose vast knowledge in the field of chemistry helps students understand most if not all concepts. She did tend to use the book a lot however, and her accent made it occasionally difficult to understand her. Her tests are worth nearly nothing which can help or hurt you depending on your test taking abilities, so it is really only her homework that genuinely matters. If you can get only average test grades and do all of the homework, you have an A.

She is one of my favorite teachers this year. Everyone always complains about her accent but i love it. If you speak Spanish its easier to get along with her. Thank God I do. The work is not very hard and she doesn't give a lot. If you don't understand something she does try her best to help you understand it. Overall she is a great teacher!!!

Ms.Martin has a really good sense of humor, however, she is also a very tough grader. be double careful when you take her class, because she will fail you in a blink of an eye
