This math class was such a headache. Make sure to pay attention in class and try to keep up with what is going on. You need to work really hard and deal with her attitude.
I don't doubt that Ms. Weiss is knowledgeable, however, she simply fails when it comes to sharing this knowledge with her students. Not only did her lack of teaching frustrate me, but I was not given the right materials (homework/classwork) to teach myself the lesson. When I approached her about this, I did get a kind response, however, no adjustments were made in effort to help me do better in the class. Unless you were a teacher's pet being successful would be difficult.
Really great and interesting teacher for bio.
As long as you don't give her a reason to hate you then you'll do fine. Took her class for geometry and you can deff get an A. She always offers help and stays for lunches and such. Supper sweet cares a lot LOVE YOU WEISS
I got a 5 on the AP thanks to her.
Super tough but fair. Learned lots.
I had another teacher for math this year and I wish I had Miss Weiss again. She really knows how to make me understand.
The best for AP Bio. So prepared that the test seemed easy.
She does NOT prepare you properly for the AP and because of it I got a 2. I am very mad at this establishment and the AP Biology program at our school because I was neglected. I used to draw pictures of this other boy during class, but I highly doubt that had to do with my C's and 2. This class ruined me and this teacher is the reason why. Avoid her.
the best, pulled a 5 on ap bio, dont think i missed a question
I had her for IAT and AP Bio. Even though she gets good results on the AP, she makes you fell bad for asking a question. She is also somewhat intimidating
Ms Weiss can't even keep to her word and meet her own deadlines. But she holds us to. Morale sucks and she hazes students. Should have retired long ago. Why would anyone from Northwestern have to teach at Beverly? Oh I know, it's the only place you can get away with not teaching and calling yourself a teacher. Teaching to the AP but learning little and belittling us is unprofessional. She only has the class because she is lifelong friends with the Principal. Sad and deplorable.
you won't like her at first and vice versa. as time goes, she'll start to grow on you guys and the general relationships will grow. with this said, at any point she can still be very strict and out of line. her class is not easy if you have her for an AP class. even though she sorta messed up my GPA, i like her. she's sorta nice and pretty damn funny.
Mixed opinions from each student, but from the students who did well she was amazing, others would say she is terrible. She tries to help, and provides the opportunity to succeed. She likes EVERYBODY.
Have her for Ap Bio. Honestly, without a doubt best teacher in this school. The class itself bonds and it's like family. But, AP Bio is an extremely hard class, and she tries to make it easier, but st
AP Bio-prob. the hardest class at the school. Too much material for sophomores and tests are way too hard. That said, weiss is a good teacher and a great lecturer-she just needs to be easier
AP Bio. The class wasn't that hard, it's just lots of reading. If you manage your time and don't procrastinate you'll be fine. It's a lot of material, but she prepares you really well for the AP.
Had her for AP Bio-not an easy class at all-Lots of reading and hard long tests.However, Ms Weiss prepares you extremely well for the AP, has great lectures, and is an immense help to students
i had her for geometry....shes a hard teacher but she taught me alot!
i had her for ap bio and she increased my love for bio. a great teacher and a really funny person. she goes above and beyond the ca of duty to make sure her kids succeed!
Her AP Bio class is very hard. The AP exam is much easier than her tests. Don't feel bad if you get a C or D in AP Bio but a 4 or perfect 5 on the AP, that is what most people get.
She is a great teacher, expect to do work on your own in AP bio, but not too much. But whatever you do, do not leave your notes for the last minute, you wont do as well on tests.
She's really a nice person if you think about it. She teaches really well too, so you will benefit. No need to worry about her bad rep.~ she's really nice as long as you try/ask questions and show that you really care. She likes people who care about school, and try hard...you can tell that she is really genuine. She gets interrupted during class a lot by other teachers.Everyone seems to love her
excellent teacher. you will learn tons from her. she really knows her subject. she will prepare you for the AP very well. dont take it personally when she's rude...thats just how she is.
She respects you if you're polite and behave in class (AP Bio). However, she does favor her athlete students, and her bio lectures are very boring. Other than that, she's ok.
She's an excellent teacher with good methods that work and are fair. She isn't difficult, it's just that the class is. She is very well-qualified to teach AP Bio.
Being in her class room makes you wish you where a female playing vb. that way she might accually pass you.
her ap bio class is really tough, and she isn't lenient with grades. her teaching is okay, but you have to study on your own to do well because the tests are hard.
She overprepares you for AP Bio. Not necessarily a bad thing but it makes the class tough. Very strict, but she is a nicer person outside of class when she's not yelling at everybody.
She challenges and fully prepares her students. Her classes are definitely worth taking.
Coach Weiss is the best teacher ever. She is so animated and interesting and really cares. She's rough at the beginning, but then you will think she's an awesome teacher, she exp
Poor communication skills. Does not understand her students.
She's a good teacher for AP bio knows what shes doing. she REALLY hated me but its okay i still think she was a really good teacher and you'll be really prepared for AP bio. but its tough
She is not as bad as a teacher as everyone thinks. She loses her temper sometimes but she does care about her students. Her classes are difficult but you'll get through it. I had her for Honors Bio and Ap Bio and I have gotten A's all semesters so far. Work hard and stay on her good side and she's not that bad. Some people hate her, but she really isn't that horrible.
I had her for IAT fresh year -- a really wonderful teacher - shes great
she is strict about grading papers. I guess thats good for her ap class. her lectures are clear and helpful on the ap exam.
she prepares her students very well for the AP, but she plays favorites and does not like many people
first of all the teacher has nothing to do with how well u do on an ap exam. If the students worked hard that does not mean she did all the work.
Dont ask stupid questions if you are in her biology class......As a matter of fact, dont ask questions at all.
Excellent teacher. Really challenges her students. I love her!
everyone from her AP bio class this year (2004) got 4's and 5's. i think that says something.
she can sometimes give u an attitude but it's bc of her own personal problems. other times she can be nice and explains things clearly.
if you get to know her she's very nice- i was borderline in her ap bio class and she let me re-do a lab for extra points so i could get the higher grade
she's cool, but sometimes she doesn't know what shes talking about...
