Grades very toughly, seems to try to give bad grades.
One of the best teachers I've ever had. She provides clear explanations of concepts, and is very approachable. Definitely need to put in some effort to get good results, so don't slack off.
I loved Mrs. Heckman!!! She doesn't favor students for being "popular", but she will love you if you put 100% of your effort into her class. That's all there is to it.
Though still a very good teacher, she can be cold and often has a very flat affect.
After having had Binkowski, I didn't think any science teacher could be better, but Mrs. Heckman is definitely just as good! I look forward to her class everyday.
Couldn't ask for anyone better, just don't slack off. Bio is my favorite subject this year and I think I want to be a bio major in college now. You're the best Mrs. Heckman :)
Mrs. Heckman is a good teacher and shows interest in helping her students. She's an awesome teacher to have for your first year of AP when you're not used to it.
One of the best teachers I've had, and most of them have been terrible, so she's great.
If you put in a little effort you would be fine. Slack off and your screwed! She doesn't tolerate slackers.
Excellent teacher. Is well prepared beforehand, and gives fool-proof explainations of difficult concepts.
Ruth Heckman is the best teacher in the world! She is wonderful, nice, helpful, warm, and an overall excellant teaching. I recommend her to anyone! I love her
She's alright if you are willing to put the effort in...HOWEVER! If you are a slacker she will not be willing to let you makeup any work.
