(bio1) she writes down all the notes on the board with awesome drawings, and that is all that we need to study for exams. she always makes sure that everyone can see what she's writing. she points out the important stuff. listen in class and you could easily remember the basics, and all that's left is to reread a few times before the exams. funny and cute teacher.

Definitely the best teacher I had in that semester. Explains really well. She makes you take alot of notes (color codes them herself) but that's what helps you understand so well. Sometimes studying is difficult because there's so much material but other than that she's the sweetest! 100% recommended.

Had her for Bio I. She was amazing. She makes you write notes all by hand which may sound tedious but it really helps to memorize later on and also prevents you from falling asleep since you're constantly doing something. She is super sweet and exams prepare you very well for the final. Definitely recommend!

Man, I suck at drawing and even with that her notes were awesome. If you can't draw she has a notes pack with the drawings inside, so you can simply label it in class. Or you could draw. Either way she's a must-take, midterms mcs are somewhat tricky but you can definitely ace the final. Do take her!

Exams are intentionally tricky (tricky wording, extremely specific questions on little things that are really not important) and you really need to go to class because there are no powerpoints, all the notes are taken in class by hand. Can sometimes be a little moody during office hours. Take her if you are hardworking and like to draw/good at drawing. If you slack off and can't draw neatly, you won't have good notes to study from.
