Best teacher I've ever had. She is incredibly knowledgable and will teach 3x what you need to learn (which is great if you like biology). You will be ridiculously prepared for the AP test (and college bio) with this class. Her tests are really hard, but once you get used to her style and take advantage of bonus it's not impossible to do well. She's incredibly patient and obviously loves teaching. She's also a very cool lady outside of class and does a lot for Ben Franklin.

Dr. Gubala is by far the toughest teacher I have ever been taught by. One thing is she actually eaches the subject. Even though Jesus couldn't even pass her test (I don't know how there so hard) you will definately walk out of her class knowing some type of biology.

Her tests are really hard but I love her class. She really prepare you for the AP test. Tst grades are always low but she grades other things pretty easily and she gives unlimited extra credit!

I think shes a pretty nice person but she expects too much from her students. A "C" is like a "A" in her class, but then again, you learn a bunch! I think it should be a bit easier,honestly.

She's a good person, she's really nice and helpful, but as a teacher...I'll pass. I've never gotten the grades I get in her class before and I've never studied for one class as much as I study for hers. She makes everything so hard. However, her class is passable. GOOD LUCK to next year's freshman.

I like Dr. Gubala as a person, but as a teacher she's mega-harsh. I always do my homework and I try to keep up in class but it seems like theres always something I did wrong. And I usually study for the tests but the only difference it makes is whether I get a high F or a low F.

She's nice but she moves so quickly. Some time it can be hard to keep up.One thing that I could say is that she helps you ALOT with what you need to know.Sometimes she over teaches though. Another thing I could mention about Dr.Gubala is that she never yells or raises her voice at her students.

She's nice but she moves so quickly it can be hard to keep up. I find it annoying how she has us read chapters and do hw on things we haven't actually talked about; we just write the answers without knowing what we're talking about. Also the fact that we have to do EVERYTHING with our lab groups just makes things more complicated. However, once you learn to keep up, you'll learn biology. She's good prep for college.
