Ms. Johnston is an overall nice teacher.She knows her stuff pretty well.
She may be a good person, the science isnt in on that yet sadly, but she certainly is not a very good teacher. Her style is aggressive and demanding, she is known to be disliked by students and some faculty alike and doesnt seem to be willing to change her sour personality to make things a little happier for herself or her students. If the Ms. Johnston in the classroom is the real her, then I feel nothing but incredibly sorrow for her, she is a very angry and sad person.
had her 4 years ago, very knowledgable but poor people skills. my advice to you is to find happiness in yourself, go on tinder or POF but please do something. youre a bio teacher for students to go to university, taking out your frustration on them isnt fair. i know you are a good person deep down. give people a f****ing break seriously, it isnt easy on any of us. also stop making people wait outside, s***ts not cool
its like willingly walking into a depression. No enthusiasm whatsoever.
Simply WTF. Worst experience I had. She is clearly taking it on the students cause she is single. Come late to class and receive exile for 30min before let into class. WTF i have to fill out a paper explaining why I'm late. Bipolar and moody during her period so brace yourselves for the worst. Tests were too detailed and varied in content she never taught. If shes reading this plx retire and open this position to someone who can teach. I am now a 4th year biology specialist at UofT.
She hates her job... I am so disappointed. I love biology. Anne Johnston makes me hate biology. She has such a sour attitude towards her students and it feels as if she is working against the clas rather than for us. She should not be allowed to teach at such a great school.
As a former student that graduated 5 years ago, Johnston is probably one of the most passionate teachers you could ever meet. This is a trait that is lacking in many teachers past secondary school who could care less if you fail. Value this and it will be key to your success. All other semantics in school or life do not matter if you do not have the passionate drive as much as Johnston has.
Whenever she gives you a review sheet for test always read and know the diagrams she says, if you do you will get a good mark on her tests
friendly and kind, some moodswings...REMEMBER: never use her computer! hard part of tests: (comparisons); always a smile on her face(usually)
She's awesome! gave me a 95 in her biology class! for people who did bad on her tests, READ HER NOTES AND THE BOOK BEFORE TEST! straight forward questions on tests! love it!
lab technician @ sci centre taught better than her. is accusatory, plays favourites, and INEFFECTIVE. no passion for job or concern for students. i despise her
Less book to carry home! Explains clearly most of the time, tests aren't hard if you read the book at least for 15 minutes before the test. Creative in a way...
Shes tough... but trust me i believe that doing all the work in her class will pay off in our futures... sorta gets us ready for university
Sometimes unclear. Friendly and kind. Just do your work, participate and study and read the stuff. Can be good teacher depending on how you are in class.
marks MUCH harder than is necessary (and takes forever to do it). knows the material. its just she doesn't teach very well...if at all. IS capable of niceness.
Was actually able to mimic a Galapagos Finch in class! Excellent!!
I GIVE HER LEVEL ONE FOR TEACHING !!!!!!!!!!
keep up the good work !!!!!!!!!
