An absolute nightmare of a teacher, she has no system in grading whatsoever. She will make a test out of 26 points, and remove 2 for a spelling error on the word "phenolphthalein." Did I do well on her tests? Interesting question, yes, and at the same time, a huge, resounding NO. It's more of an involuntary placement of my fate in the hands of a grater power. Honestly, she's the only teacher where you can leave a test feeling great, only to discover you've scored a 20/30. Thanks for my first C!

She's pretty cool and easy. Not that inspiring of a teacher, though.

Very sweet woman. Get off to a good start because she'll hold a grudge. Not the best teacher, but easy to make up for by reading the material. Very picky grader on tests.

So nice! She really wants you to understand. Make sure you go over what she talks about in class before a test. ALWAYS WRITE YOUR UNITS! Even in your work.

Dr. Finley was one of my favorite Exeter teachers ever. I'm not a very sciencey person but because of her I ended up loving chem!
