I had her for grade 11 biology acceleration course in summer school. I understand it's difficult to teach a whole course in a month but she was extremely unreasonable and had temper issues! She expected us to know all of the course context before hand and would get yell when we asked questions. Very discouraging, rude and strongly advise you to switch out of her class!!

Mrs. Reid is one of the best teachers I've ever had. She was tough, but it's only because she truly wants to see you do well and become something. If you're in her class, please read your textbook ahead of time. She wants to have a discussion on the content that you're learning, if you don't know the content you'll just sit there in deafening silence. All in all, Mrs. Reid is an amazing teacher, and it is your responsibility as the student to take initiative and try to learn some things ahead.

A very knowledgeable teacher. She has a PhD so don't mess with her. But she always confuses me with her different hairdos everyday. Makes it very hard to learn in class. She also yells a lot when you don't answer questions. Yelled at my parents. Confused them too. Every time I enter her class, I enter normally. Every time I leave her class, I come out sweaty.

She honestly scares me. You can hear her high heels clicking from a mile away. She yells a lot and it did cause me to break down, but sometimes she's okay. Always remember to bring everything with you, if not you're basically dead to her. It seems like you can't make mistakes in her class but for the ones that have her one day, I pray for you.

If you cry in front of her, she'll tell you to "not try that on you". When you're stressed and pressured to your breaking point, she doesn't care. She wants participation, but puts down students who get answers wrong. She's probably the most knowledgeable science teacher but she needs to understand what kind of age group she's talking to. I feel sorry for her kids, I wish you luck in life Sebastian.

She tells you to write within the lines on tests, but if you see her answer key, it's probably four times as long as the space she gives, and only fits because it's typed in a tiny font.

Although she is really tough, and has high expectation, she did explained her stuff really well for most of the time and she is really knowledgeable. I personally don't hate her nor like her, I did average in her class. If you are REALLY INTERESTED in Bio, then go ahead and take her class, you could learn alot from her. But you'll have to be prepare for a torment semester.

Teaching is like some sort of torture to her. You can see the anguish on her face the moment she starts speaking. The second you come into class she snaps at you. Expect tirades. She expects you to walk into class already knowing everything. If we knew the content already, we wouldn't have needed her to teach us, would we? She only wants MENSA-level geniuses. Everyone else can eat dirt. Learn the whole course yourself before taking hers. "You either get it or you don't."

Man where do I begin. She tells you to ask questions and all we do is write too much but when you ask questions, she starts yelling at you like you asked what 2 + 2 is. She marks up your test so much that you can't even see your own answers. Expects you to say good morning and good bye to her or else she thinks you were "poorly raised". Bring a freaking tape recorder to class, any word she says could come up on the test or exam. But, I guess she knows her stuff but she still has zero chill.

Had last year and hated it. She's always yelling at everybody. Complains if you write down too much stuff in class. Doesn't clarify what she's looking for in assignments and labs. Yells at you for asking questions, because apparently asking means that you didn't prepare well enough for class. You gunna come out of her class with an inferiority complex.

Worst teacher I ever had, even worst than my grade 1 teacher despite my bad childhood, she is moody at times and is complete hypocritical(not to be harsh) I suffer lots of things in the past , all I do is hear yelling everyday, scares everybody, hard to learn, even at tests and every category is completely bombed. Even if this doesn't make complete sense.

she's always telling people that they have attitude when she has more attitude than the entire class combined together. yells at everyone non-stop from monday to friday. teaches way too fast with no explaining expecting us to learn from her saying 1 sentence in about 2 seconds and then suddenly gives us a quiz. she gives way too much homework that we have to sleep at midnight every single day trying to learn what she was teaching us today because we don't understand her.

She can be strict and scary, but she is by far one of the best teacher for bio. She actually explains stuff, unlike the other bio teachers. Though her tests may be hard, and though she my be tough on you, but you will thank her in uni.

Absolute worst teacher Ive had in my life. Very rude and disrespectful and made you feel so bad about yourself. I had her in grade 9 science and because of her, i will probably never take science in my life. She was also a type of teacher to play favoritism. I was not impressed at all at her teaching methods and she was a terrible start to my first year of high school.

I had her in night class, and i have to admit if your in her class, you have to really read your stuff before hand, i was kinda of a slacker in her class so i didn't do so well. Its all about preparation and asking questions if you don't know something. She was a hard teacher but overall had good intentions - learn to study hard and never give up. Sure i barely passed, but once you reach university you will understand why shes being so harsh over the bio material. Pay attention in her class!!!!!

She is super hard, and says that she is willing to help you if you have any problems. But when you ask her questions she yells at you infront of the whole class. This discourages many students from asking her questions. Also she tests you on stuff that is not in the textbook, so you have to be ready for anything.... the exam we had was about 20 pages. SO STUDY HARD IF YOU WANT TO DO OKAY IN HER CLASS.
