Amazing, I had this teacher in 2001. Based on most recent reviews, nothing has changed!
The other way around with everyone else, the textbook made me enjoy Chemistry, just difficult to go through her class without reading the textbook. Her teaching style could improve but possible to get a good grade in her class as long as you work hard and use your textbook for EVERYTHING.
Be ready to teach yourself and have information thrown at you. Don't bother asking her to slow down because if your in honors she expects you to keep up. She was worthless as a teacher. Me and my friends taught ourselves outside of class
RUTHHHHHHH. She is a great person, but not the best teacher. Super smart, but not good at converying all of the information
I do not understand her class whatsoever. She is incapable and slowing down and explaining things thoroughly, she just moves on through tough topics the whole class is struggling with. For a class as tedious as chemistry, she needs to learn how to make it easier to understand. I am hoping to drop her class at the beginning of 2nd semester. She means well, but explains nothing.
not an easy class but definately worth it, you will learn chemistry!! had her for chem and ap chem, LOVED HER! very nice and funny. "6.022 times 10 to the 23rd, go on and shout it!" hahaha
Billings was NOT a good teacher. She was incredibly boring. I didn't know chemistry was actually interesting until I took it again in college (and actually minored in it).
She is nice and helpful if your not rude and stupid to her
If you don't want to learn anything, then you should definitely take this class. I officially hate Chemistry now, and I've only been in her class for about four weeks.
Not a bad teacher, lots of teaching from the book. If you are intellegent, this is an easy class. People who "don't care" fail, she is not afraid to fail people
she gives out a lot of homework, but she's a nice person. i think she expects too much out of high school students that have a ton of other stuff to do
horrible teacher somw times she helps and other times i hav no clue
teaches too much by the book and not for the student is too fast and boring MAKE Chem fun not sitting there doing book work
She does give hard work, but if you read your text you should be fine, because all of her test questions come directly from the book.
