She was pretty mean to me and obviously has favorites. Very smart and a good teacher, but she's a total try hard when it comes to forming a bond with the students.

Ms.Hollenbeck acts kind of bad sometimes, but other than that she's really good.
TIPS

-Make sure to have separate tabs for science
-DO NOT MISS SCHOOL!

This is one of the best teachers I ever had, she is literally one of the best science teachers. She has a good sense of humor which engages the class into science which by the way is my favorite subjects but for students who don't like science they will ! She will demonstrate the idea very clearly, and often involves technology in her teaching which is very helpful. I honestly recommend this teacher very much. For me she doesn't give that much homework, but I really like how she reminds people.

She is great...just great. If you studied, her tests are easy. She demonstrates how biology works. Except for the muscular system, I find her exceedingly helpful and caring. She is active, and takes pride in her collage. She does fun labs, and makes things easy for us to understand. I like her a lot, and am saddened by leaving her class this year.

Ms. Hollenbeck is probably one of the best teachers at Churchill, hands down. If you have/get her, you should be very grateful for her. She's simply amazing, funny, and an awesome teacher. She's the best science teacher I have ever gotten. The rest of the science teachers at Churchill suck. Be grateful. You'll love her.

She is probably one of the best teachers that i have ever had. The material in her class is pretty challenging because it's IB, but she explains in really well. She doesnt give out too much homework,and if you work hard in her class then you will be fine
