Without a doubt the best teacher I’ve had in my life. Mrs. State is truly the most genuine, kind-hearted, and passionate teacher I have ever met. Cares so much about her students&wants to help all of them succeed. Truly loves her job and believes in the power of education. She’s one of those teachers i’ll never forget 20 years down the road. quite possibly the most inspirational and significant teacher i’ve had - i learned to love learning as a whole from her (not just for the "A" in the class)
Quite possibly one of the kindest human beings to ever grace the earth! Her childlike enthusiasm is contagious and she is incredibly knowledgable and passionate about what she does! She also makes the most adorable faces and voices!
Loves her students and her job. She has a great personality but some of her teaching techniques I would have to disagree with. The class overall is challenging but it is definitely possible to get an A. Wouldn't recommend the class if you have a busy schedule.
Mrs. State is my favorite teacher at Westlake because she genuinely loves her job and puts so much effort into what we do. She plans out our exams and assignments online so that we always know when there will be a test. State is always available to help you at lunch and after school and is a very sweet person. 100% recommend this class.
She is an awesome teacher, when I don't understand she is always ready at awnser questions. As long as your willing to work she is an amazing teacher and I would recommend her to all of the incoming freshmen wanting to take bio honors.
Her class is my favorite part of the day. She is always extremely enthusiastic and seems to really love her job. She assigns projects and classwork that caters to all learning styles and students. She is always prepared for her students and goes out of her way to make time to help them. AP bio is an extremely difficult class, so be prepared to work hard. I admire how she is always trying to improve herself as a teacher and on top of that, she is a really likable person.
Mrs.State is a very intelligent individual, but one can tell right away that she is a new and inexperienced teacher. Although she knows the topic very well she is not very good at formulating responses to complex questions in a timely fashion, and often confuses students in the process.
Mrs. State is among the smartest, most helpful, and effective teachers I've had - not only is she a great person, but she really knows her stuff and much besides, and I really admire her dedication to structure and organization in her teaching. She's great at involving everybody in the class, and not letting a few people take more out of the day than the rest, and she's extremely helpful to those who go out of their way to try and excel. Go Cardinals!
She is one of the best teachers at Westlake! She is so smart and helpful! She really does care about her students and wants to see us do well! The tests for AP bio are insane, but I know it will just make us more prepared for the actual AP. She is super short and super sweet and has so much energy in class and makes you want to learn. She makes you stay focused, because she always has something planned, so don't bring other hw to class because she should and always has your attention!
