Great teacher. Can be intimidating in the start but once you get to know her she's a nice teacher. And our class has food all the time

I had to learn the chapters ahead of time just to keep up with her because she never really teaches. And she's retiring at the end of this year, and doesn't care if we fail! Where's the justice?

I had Farinells for AP Chem and she really prepped us for the exam. If you have her for Chem 1 it'll be hard, so switch out unless you plan on taking AP. She teaches like its college, i liked it.

Honestly, she is a hard teacher. Many people don't like her because of this, but if you do the work she will help you. The fact that she always gets a ridiculously high number of fives is a testament to her teaching ability.

although people say she doesn't really explain..she actually tries to make you learn how to reason by yourself instead of being just given the answer.
