Ms. Bains is one of the only teachers who actually teach at McNair. If you pay attention in class and study hard, getting an A or a B is fairly easy. Ms. Bains is a phenomenal woman, with knowledge of the scientific world; you can learn a lot from a semester in her class, whether it be General Science, Biology or Chemistry.

She expects you to learn everything by your self, doesn't really teach us usually makes us just watch videos. Very rude and if you ask her to repeat something she'll say "no you should of listened ". If you have a question and she thinks it's stupid she'll tell you, infront of the whole class which is embarrassing or she says " I'm not even going to answer that".I probably learn more in gym then from her and she has favourites.

So incredibly awesome compared to the other teachers, especially the student teacher. I learned so much in her class and my provincial exam mark was great, because she helped review so much. Yes, she has expectations, but they are reasonable and fair. I like her a lot, because she listens to us about setting exam dates and is very good for extensions, etc. I will miss her classes.

Very good teacher. Relates well to students is very reasonable. But you could make your tests a little easier becuase they do go into detail a little to much. Should make written test easier.

Ms.Bains is definately one of the hardest teachers at McNair. If you are ready to work and be challenged, she is the one you want. However, Ms.Kwon maybe better for your class mark and her provincial scores are pretty close to Ms.Bains!
