Moore does not teach, and when she does, she cannot teach. Learning materials does not match up with the tests and quizes she give. She is extremely unfair and does not grade properly. She sets her expectations very high, but does not give instructions on what to include when writing explanations, CER, and lab reports. Taking de anza classes would be a smarter choice.

Moore now teaches AP Chemistry. I had Mrs. Moore for freshman year bio and she ruined biology for me. I entered AP Chemistry and decided not to transfer to the other AP Chemistry teacher (Mrs. Gupta) since I thought Moore would be better for chem as she is a chem major, boyyyy was I wrong. Moore cannot teach this course properly and she is unfair. Recently, there was an test issue as she plagiarized a test from online and made us all retake it the next week as the "questions were circulation."

She doesn't even teach and gives very hard tests. Contrary to popular opinion, she is probably harder than Lerner. Clearly wants to be teaching Chemistry and doesn't care about her Biology students. None of the stuff on her tests is from the powerpoints or anything she says in class, and for the Physiology unit she just told us to go self-study. But if you are good at cramming, you can scrape an A.

Although she is a good person, is not an effective teacher for Chem H. If you talk with her, you'll find that she's a kind woman, but her teaching has many flaws. Firstly, her idea of a lesson is showing a foggy powerpoint and then giving us worksheets. Secondly, her tests cover nothing from her lessons. There is no way to prepare, and everyone performs poorly. Lastly, her grading is pretty subjective. So get on her good side, kiss-up, and hopefully she'll spare you a point or two when you fail.

Ms. Moore has a low quality of clarity and and knowledge. The students can clearly observe that she chooses favorites and believe that a C is perfectly fine grade. In a community where an A grade is the standard bar set, this is awfully frustrating to all of those who have her as a teacher. Her attitude shows depreciation and her teaching skill is not helpful at all. If you have Ms. Moore be ready to learn on your own.

I had Moore for freshman bio and she's easily the worst teacher I've ever had. She clearly wanted to be teaching chem and she tested on material we hadn't covered. She often contradicted herself, and many of her students had to go to the other bio teachers for help. She's only knowledgable about some units, and she spent a way too much time on those units. She basically gave us info to memorize but tested us on our "understanding" of the topic. Your best bet is to switch out or get a tutor.

The biggest problem is she doesn't teach. We had a lot of tests without study materials. Sometime she even tested things we hadn't covered. We have been given study sheets without answers, checklists with untaught concepts - they are not even in textbooks! She doesn't give home works either so you have no idea what are covered, what are not. If you have her next year, run! (ps. I think because of her, all the bio private tutors are making $$$$ in our area! :-) )

At the beginning, Ms. Moore graded labs/CERs strangely and had confusing tests. But by the second semester, perhaps it was due to all the complaints, she taught amazingly well(everything was clear and concise in her powerpoint lectures) and was able to answer all the questions I had.The tests also became easier and understandable. She's one of those teachers that you know you can rely on for both academic and non-academic help. Just listen and participate! I got an A on both semesters.

She used to be a weird teacher but now, especially in second semester she has gotten really good. She is actually a good teacher now, but you have to understand she may get a little frustrating when grading quizzes or alignments. She only looks for a few set of words and if you don't have them there goes the questions, even if you know what you are talking about. Thankfully she tells us these words during class and emphasizes them quite well, So take NOTES :D

I had Ms. Moore for Freshman Biology. She gives lots of homework, and then re-reviews with powerpoints. She is inconsistent with her work expectations. She often contradicts herself and says the textbook is wrong, probably because she doesn't really know the information well. She provides study guides for her tests, but her tests often do not reflect her guides, so be prepared for anything. She definitely favors certain students and ethnic groups. Overall, Ms. Moore was the worst teacher ever.

I think Ms. Moore was okay at teaching(I had her freshman year for bio). She was clear on assignments but could be very boring and unclear during lectures(she told us her passion is chem not bio). However, bio itself was an interesting topic for me and the class environment was also very engaging so I liked her class a lot. Bio was paradise compared to chem. I did hear from other students that she was inconsistent in dealing with students but to me she was always very nice.

I'm a freshman, and Mrs. Moore is my bio teacher. Honestly, I think she's a terrible teacher. She gives us way too much homework everyday (over an hour), and all the worksheets she gives us has material we haven't learned. She expects us to learn it ourselves, do the homework, and not get any questions wrong. She then teaches the stuff that we learned by ourselves the next day, which totally ruins the point of actually teaching. I hope I won't fail her class this year.
