Lovely teacher, super intelligent and very, very sweet. I always struggled in science class because I'm easily distracted and not great at textbook work, which is obviously necessary when it comes to science. She was still very kind to me even though I was not one of her better students and had trouble paying attention.

Good Teacher and a very easy marker.. She expects you to know as much as she does, so you kind of have to Google and use the textbook alot to do well on tests. She expects alot of detail on everything. On tests & labs, be sure to repeat things 20 times because it looks like you know what your talking about..

Dr Decat is such a sweet lady! She enjoys her job a lot, which makes it a very positive learning environment (which is very important, especially with the stresses of 4U/AP Bio). She is very reasonable, understanding, and very passionate about the content in which she teaches. You need to be very independent and organized, and initiative is important. She doesn't get on your case about being behind, and doesn't check if you're grasping concepts. It's up to you to do the extra work and get help.

She basically does the work for you. The Stomata peel lab with Moomoo was amazing. She did everything for me! Question after question, just ask her and give her a stupid answer and she will correct you and give you the answer

Dr. Decat is an awesome teacher :) Her lessons are very detailed although sometimes it doesn't cover everything on the test. Really helpful if you ask her for help and a fairy reasonable marker. She even accepted my work after the last day of work submission although I don't recommend it as she marks ten times harder! Also you can tell she's really into plants. I'll miss having her as a teacher!

Excellent teacher. The only problem I've seen with her is trying to figure out WHAT it is you aren't understanding, if you're lost on something. If you can articulate yourself well and explain to her what you don't understand, everything else should be great. Phenomenal lessons and an amazing teacher overall.

I had her for gr 10 science as well as gr 11 and 12 biology and she is definitely one of the best science teachers I ever had. She's extremely nice and can be really funny at times. Great teacher, no student at westmount should take biology from any other teacher.

She is one of the best teachers I have ever had at the school. She is really nice, and explains the labs to me in plain english, because some of them are oddly worded. She is also great (and I'm thankful) that she took some stuff out of the course (like stupid questions). She rocks.
