Explains new concepts very well. She pushed me out of my comfort zone a bit with a lot of our projects but it helped me get over some bad habits, especially when it comes to oral presentations.

She is so sarcastic and does not even show up to class. Expects you to do self learning and never teaches stuff she gives on tests. Comstock or reichling are faar better

She is by far the best biology teacher in the school. She is a FAIR marker, if you make the effort to do your notes, ask questions and keep up with the lessons you will be fine. She is not only an amazing teacher, but she is a phenomenal person to talk to whenever school becomes overwhelming. I've had her for 2 years and I switched my schedule around to get her as my biology teacher. Try to get her as your teacher if you can :)

Watch out for her sudden mood swings. Other than that, she's a pretty good teacher.
