She is not that great at teach what we need to know. On the bright side all her test are publisher so if you read the chapter and focus on the bold print you will be fine. The most important thing is get work finished on time and turn in the packets and YLRP on time. She does pick favorites and if you offer to help pass tings out you will easily become a favorite. Gower it is also pretty easy to get on her bad side.

I would always dread this class, she did not teach well and her class was boring. She played favorites and couldn't care less about some of her other students. I wish people who get this teacher luck staying awake in the class

She picks favorites, not very helpful and don't get on her bad side. It's really quite easy to get on her bad side, and although it may be an easy A if you finish all your work... she assigns too much work for a short amount of time. She's sort of harsh but if you don't do anything wrong you should be okay. Don't expect to get into Bio if you blow off work.

easy class, but you need to study since she doesn't teach in class that much, she should give us more time to study for tests and assign less pointless projects

I had Mrs. Obrien's class 5 years ago and it was such a fun class! She was so laid back and hilarious and her class was just so chill and such a great environment to be in. Everyone was comfortable around her and each other and she was very understanding and clarified very well on whatever she taught. Best science teacher I ever had.

You will get an easy A with her, but don't expect to learn much relevant material. She also doesn't really know her material that well

Took a pair of scissors from a student who was kidding around with them with friends (stupid judgement on the part of the student) said the most the student would get was detention. Wrote the student up like they were a mass murderer and student was suspended under zero tolerance. Next time get all the facts before you act.

she's a little weird. she plays favorites more than any other teacher i know, too. thankfully im on her good side, but if you're not, you dead. she's really strict to the people she doesn't like. and if she doesn't like you and you ask her a question, she answers with a really mean attitude. she makes a lot of her students feel bad about themselves, too.

Mrs. O'Brien (AKA obi) is SUPER nice. She really cares about her students. She actually teaches you, so you know the material. She is super helpful if you have a question and is WAYY better then belida or linden. she is a really awesome teacher and its super easy to ace her class because she makes sure everyone in her class understands the material and she cares so much, its like all her students are her own children...in a good way.

Looking back on her class from Uni, I used to think her class was too easy, but it's actually HARDER than Uni science, in chemistry, especially acids/bases, she goes over the subject with much more detail than my current teacher. One of the nicest teachers at Rancho.

She's a pretty awesome teacher. She's like Driscoll, and my current sci. teacher (except my current on doesn't teach :P). But she's clear, concise, and her class is awesomely easy. She's outgoing too.
