At the beginning of the year, I disliked her because she expects a lot out of the students in her class, but I'll tell you now, she was the best teacher ever. She makes the class fun, is hilarious, and get this- Actually knows what she is talking about and teaches it skillfully. Pretty rare for a teacher, and I'm glad I had her. She is a hard grader, so make sure you spend time on your homework.

She's honestly the best teacher in the school. Any student who has her for Biology is extremely lucky because she will not only make the class enjoyable, but also prepare you really well for Chemistry. 11/10 would recommend.
