People complain about her because they copy assignments or fail to read the textbook. Ms. Anderson makes you do your stuff and prepares you for the exam. If you fail then well, you failed yourself. gg get rekt

Although the review below is unreasonably vitriolic, this site is simply a method of anonymously venting at a certain teacher.
Ms. Anderson is one of the most helpful teachers I've had at West, and as a college-level course, it is expected to utilize your textbook to the fullest extent possible. Even so, she's willing to help you out during her free periods, in class, etc.
Amazing teacher. AP Chemistry is a fast-paced class. If you can't keep up, don't take it. Can't wait for HL Chem.

Anderson is the best teacher I have had in years. She makes the class fun and interesting to most students. Although the class is fun, do not expect a cake walk to get an A. Still, she perfectly prepared us for the test and is my favorite teacher yet

Ms. Anderson is one of the best teachers I had at West. I had her for both Honors and AP Chemistry. I am a chemistry major in college now largely because of her.

Ms. Anderson was/is fantastic! I had a free period, so I would go in and ask for help. She's also hilarious and is always willing to help.

Chemistry is a really hard subject, and a lot of people dislike Anderson because they disliked the subject. Quite honestly, she is hands down the best teacher I could have hoped for for such a difficult subject. She is clear, very willing to help students and help us work through things. While she wasn't a classic "fun" teacher, she is friendly and willing to crack jokes and make fun of her students. I've never once seen her get angry or needlessly enforce arbitrary rules. An excellent teacher.

Unfortunately, this year she had to close her door a lot because the class down the hall kept yelling. It started with Ni's, then Moo's, and now it's just yelling. Sometimes they disrupt us during a test, it's really annoying. The chem class is good though and Anderson does a good job. She likes making fun of Enrique.

An amazing teacher and hilarious too. Sometimes she's a little too apathetic when you're asking for help though. She's definitely my kind of teacher though. And she really does want you to succeed.

Have these ratings been censored? My experience in her class was different than other people here. I studied and did well on the AP test but badly in her class. I wouldn't say she's "fun" or helpful.

Ms. Anderson is one of the best teachers I've had at West, and she is by far the best in the science department. AP chem's a lot of work though - don't get behind! 85 = A = awesome and necessary.

Not only does Anderson have a great sense of humor, but she is cynical to boot! Definitely one of the best teachers at West, if not in the world! She knows how to deal with obnoxious students!
