Mrs. Homan has very high standards, sometime it feels like she's looking to deduct point from you, i know that's not the case. You have to be very meticulous. Normally in other science classes once you get the concepts your good, but in her class you have to do all these extra stuff, and apply it on the test. I found the class harder than it should be for a regents course, however overall found Mrs. Homan to be a very good person and teacher. My learning style and her teaching just did not align
Mrs. Homan is an amazing teacher in the sense that she does everything she can to help her students succeed. However, she has very high standards and her class was a little too fast paced for me. I don't love her grading policy (if you get below an 80 on a test your HW grade drops to 0 unless you do corrections) and the class was fairly difficult for me (I got a 79 on all but two tests in chem. It was torture). Still, I love her as a person and she is very helpful if you go get help after class.
She was very funny and definitely does her best to make her students succeed
Best and easiest class ever. Thanks to her fun, encouraging, and great teaching methods not only did I get the American Chemical Society Silver Test Tube Award for being the top 10% of Chemistry students in the nation, but I also got a 100 on the Regents exam without much preparation since I understood her really well. Rating says all.
Mrs. Homan is one who really knows her stuff instead of the science teacher that just teaches out of the book. Chem can be a boring class for many, yet Mrs. Homan knows how to prevent that. She doesn't lecture, in fact she avoids lectures as much as possible. She does numerous cool demonstrations and teaches through them. She also encourages us to learn ourselves by reading from the textbook, which may sound condesceding, but it's to prepare us for college. Great teacher overall! Way to go!!!
She's the best!! I love her!! Her teaching is crystal clear and she is so kind and considerate. Best science teacher ever.
LIVE LOVE HOMAN she was incredible always felt like i really understood what was going on not just memorizing for a test. really helpful if i missed a class. has great method for testing and homework. put in some work and be respectful and you'll love mrs homan

Teaches more than is necessary for the tests so students actually UNDERSTAND chem; funny and interesting; helpful and forgiving when students have problems; best speaking voice EVER
A nice techer overall, does fun demos, says funny stuff, but doesn't do much helpe after school......
Mrs. Homan is sooo nice. Personally I think Chem is easy, but even for the kids that struggle it always seems like she's willing to help them.
HO-Dawg! made learning chemistry entertaining from stories about eating mercury to setting her hand on fire. She has encouraged me to take up chem in college.
Organized, caring, funny, teaches well! Had her 4 years ago, and still remember!
she's awesome, one of the nicest teachers i've ever had, really cares about kids
Mrs. Homan is intelligent, kind, and organized. She is very precise and clear.
she's my worst teacher to im glad i dont have her anymore
Excellent teacher--still remember the demo days in class
the home. funny, crazy, ate mercury, knows her chemistry
The second time I went in for extra help she told me to get a tudor...thanks
Okay person, hard class. Okay while it was, but don't miss it.
