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.
A real challenge getting throught this class, but she teaches well and it was fun (kind of). :D
People who can't pass her class don't belong in this High School. She's a challenging fantastic teacher with a curriculum designed for gifted hardworking students.
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.
shes really nice and a cool teacher, but shes soo hard! i have a D in her class and it seems like she doesnt tell us what to do she expects us to figr it out!
Awesome teacher. Great lecturer and taught me all I knew about bio. Harsh grader but if you're smart you get used to her tests.
Dr Gubala is one of the best teachers at franklin. You learn a lot, but don't expect to have a lot of fun. She also expects A LOT of her students.
Dr. Gubala is such a great teacher! She is single-handedly the reason I want to go into Biology in college now.
one of the nicest people ever!! but her tests are hard as cheese!! Gubala is so cool & will mos def prepare you for bio2
One of the best teachers at school...knows her stuff and communicates it well through lecture...will prepare u for the bio ap exam like no other teacher
Dr. Gubala is so awesome. She has a real passion for biology that rubs off on all her students . bUt she's really tough!
Great teacher (if bio's your thing). However, her ridgidity on unreasonable test questions explains my 3 rating on helfulness.
really hard tests but a great class and you learn a lot
unnecessarily difficult and unfair grader... but nice..
very effective lecturer. you learn your stuff. try to get her at some point
Had a palpable passion for Biology and teaching that rubbed off on her students
amazing teacher-she will prepare you for the AP exam, but it takes a lot of work
extremely knowledgeable and organized, but was not a fair nor inspiring teacher
Great teacher. Despite failing 1st semester, I minored in Bio in college.
I loved both Bio and Bio AP with Dr. Gubabla. She is a great teacher.
The best biology teacher I've had. Her enthusiasm draws you in.
Undeniably competent, but unfair grader - esp. on group projects
wonderful! because of her, i'm now a bio graduate student
Learned a lot from her but she is a very unfair grader
