Not a knowledgeable teacher. Half of the time she didn't know what she was talking about. Students had to help her out a lot of times. She would snap at you for no apparent reason if you didn't understand something. At times was afraid to approach her Needs a reality check.
She'll be on your side if you DO THE WORK. Pull your weight and she'll definitely notice you're trying. Also, be sure to ask her when you don't understand something, and keep at it!! Biology isn't supposed to be easy! She may be a bit unorganized but she definitely knows her stuff.
Very kind lady, I just don't understand her style of teaching. It's unorganized and doesn't make much sense to me
She's really helpful, and very clear. One time I did not understand the homework and as long as you ask her she let me stay after class and she taught me what to do. On exams she provides really helpful reviews and I did really good on the exam. She makes science really clear and easy to understand
As a person, she isn't bad. However, as a teacher, she may not be one's first choice. Her explanations seemed to confuse the class rather than enlighten them, and there were a surprising amount of things that she didn't even know herself. She can be lenient, but you better have a good reason. Also, she mentions and asks for homework that was never assigned, and gave the complete wrong page number for an assignment she still expected us to do.
Constantly lost marks for stuff she didn't ask for. Her pace was all over the place and I felt like I was going to fail because of this. Before this I had been getting 70s and 80s in science, but after i had her, I was at a 64.
Great teacher, but you have to accept that she gives out alot of work. Cheesy sense of humor too.
A very unpleasant experience.
Bryne was a pretty good teacher to those who she actually liked. For those who struggled in science she barely bothered to help them! if she were to slow down her lessons and use less of the textbook and fully explain her reasonings and the things shes trying to teach she would have been good for me. She also is very hard to approach and makes you feel extremely stupid when you dont understand something in her class!!
Very hard marker on labs! She literally checks every last detail there is to find! Her tests are really hard for the most part, but it makes you feel real good when you do well. Overall she's fairly nice when you get to know her.
i've lost my passion for science, therefore losing it for school, and now i work at mc donalds. I live with my parents because she failed me in bio when i got a 60. I haven't dated anyone since 2 years. I am a hardcore gamer and i hate life. thank you ms byrne- fratoni for this. :)
Her class is hard, but you will thank her later when you're in post secondary and are taking a bio or bio related course. She is hard to approach but it's worth it. Never worked so hard in a class in my life and still only got a decent mark, but she's brilliant. Looking back, I'm really glad I was in her grade 12 bio class
Very, very difficult teacher. Great, but very difficult. Her course requires more than what is expected of you, and the only real problem, I think, is that she is very sensitive to syntax.
I lost my passion for science after being in her class.
Seems like a fun character, outside of the classroom, however she tends to play favourites, doesn't answer questions properly, very hard to understand. Often hard to approach, forgetful easily angered
I thought she was a fabulous teacher. The work is difficult and she makes you try your hardest, but I learned a whole lot and remember a lot from her lessons.
The reason for my success!! In '89ish she subbed @ Sir Winston S.S. for Math. She took the time to clarify, explain and explain some more!! Awesome lady!!
Doesn't realize how much pressure she puts on her students with the difficulty of her tests..plays favourites..doesn't acknowledge when a student is working hard.
i think she is a very vague teacher. My son had a 96 92 94 91 88 in all of his other courses. Meanwhile in Mrs. Byrne-Fratoni's class he had a 51 as his final.
Really good personality and really nice but when it comes to teaching shes not that great...
Ms. Byrne or "the byrne" as i liked to call her was an excellent teacher. I had her for grade 10 science. She taugh bio, chem and weather very well however if physics is not your specialty, get help (mr C was good) She's not too great at teaching it
She has an excellent personality,but needs to focus on teaching what she hates.Overall,excellent teacher.Hard marker.
super nice, always there for extra help, awesome person
Very hard marker, not helpful at all. Doesn't teach things.. just expects students to know it...
As a bio major, I know good science teachers-thanks!
Very hard, but no complaints since it is good prep. All students will do well in uni. because she of her expectations!!!
Very organized & helpful. Has high expectations but prepares you for higher grades. Makes it fun too!
