Sadly she's the only teacher that teaches bio acc. Extremely picky and is a perfectionist. Thank god she got a lab assistant to correct her homework. She doesn't let you turn in late work WAT-SO-EVER. Her grading system is all sorts of funk. A quiz was only 8 points while a homework assignment was 18. She knows her stuff but can not teach for the sake of her life. When you ask her a question she doesn't know, she starts talking quietly.

Ms. Corbett is really nice and sweet but extremely picky when it comes to her labs. She recommends you read articles and textbooks to learn about biology. Honestly, I don't think she likes her job very much and is biased. She also speaks soft and her mood is based on how students treat her. Just greet her and show her that you care and BAM you just got yourself an A.

I had her for Biology Accelerated. She did not teach or explain anything. If someone asked her a question, it'd go like this: student: Ms. Corbett, what's an ATP Synthase? Corbett: well, you're the ACCELERATED student with the book, so let me ask you: What IS an ATP synthase? well if we knew, why the hell would we be asking. she's pretty scary too. we never ask her any question until we have thoroughly searched the book. By "we" I'm referring to the entire class.

SHE'S SO NICE! That's so sad how some people are so mean. Just because someone has a bad grade in her class doesn't mean everyone is..

she doesn't speak loud enough in her lectures, and usually does not fully answer any questions. her class is quiet and her teaching skills are not too great.

IMO, one of the best teachers at Arroyo. Ever since she got all her family problems set aside, she's been wonderful. This year, 2010, we had an 80% Advanced score on the Bio CSTs! Great teacher.

Worst teacher ever! Can hardly classify her as a teacher because she doesn't know what she's doing.

Corbett was a good teacher this past year in my eyes. She wised up after her family problems last year and it really shows. Gives effort to teach lessons, and actually is a pretty good teacher.
