Mixed feelings about her overall She was a knowledgeable teacher who was nice and understanding toward students but she gave out such hard quizzes and tests and in terms of her grading you could turn something in in the beginning of the quarter and not get it back till the last week of the quarter She had a philosophy that your grade didn't matter much it was all about being a good person May sound ok but she graded us so harshly as a result of this belief To her an A or a B made no difference.

Don't you just love it when your teacher gives you two major unit tests two weeks apart. Doesn't explain it to you and the one we are taking tomorrow she has only taught us two concepts that are on it and threw worksheets at us and said learn this on your own it will be on the test and no one gets it. She is a sweet person but just a horrible teacher

Unit test tomorrow and have not learned any of the material. Most topics are not learned yet by students and we have to create our own study guides which is even more stressful and terrible, very nice and fun teacher, but not my favorite

Nice teacher but she will explain easy concepts that everyone understands way too slowly and the stuff that is extremely hard she just assigns for homework and gives a pop quiz on it the next day. He favorite phrase to use when you ask a question is "You're smart you can figure it out" like really if i could figure it out i would not be asking you.When I need a simple answer she rambles about stuff and doesn't answer the question you ask so I just give up and pretend like I get it. She is nice

(APEX Biology 9)
Mrs. Richards is mostly fine.She tries to make sure everyone understands the material and gives homework to assist in comprehension. She doesn't give a lot of homework, usually, but when she does she gives a lot of homework. She's usually fair with communication but sometimes things are lost. Her teacher style is fine (teach material, go back and review, move ahead) and gives notes or has students take notes. However, very disorganized (labs not graded until months later).

So sweet! She is genuinely interested in biology and cares about her school. Sometimes she gets a little off topic, but it's always interesting. She also can be a little unclear and disorganized, but if she didn't explicitly say to do something, just go ahead and do it. Seems to actually love her job.
