She is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about biology, and she taught me quite a lot (I still remember everything from grade 11 bio even though it's been over a year since I took it). However, she marks very harshly. Her test questions are strangely worded and if you write a response that she deems to be "too long", she will take marks off for it. Even if the response was actually correct in the first place. Try to become accustomed to her style of marking, (or just switch classes).
A moderate teacher in my opinion.
Ms. Owen is an absolute sweetheart. She is so warm, approachable, and caring. I loved having her as my biology teacher. If you study hard, you'll do well in her course. She gives you lots of opportunities to do well. She plans so many fun activities for the class. I love Ms. Owen!
Mrs Owen is the sweetest woman alive and she is so kind and caring and really wants you to do well. You can tell she is extremely passionate about biology and she knows so much. Her classes can be overwhelming and tough because there is a lot to cover, but she incorporates so many fun activities (bug catching, drawing our own digestive system, collecting bacteria samples and even running around the halls to learn about heart rates). I loves Mrs Owen so much. Thanks for a great year!
SUCH a wonderful person, making her so easy to approach and get help when needed. She’s extremely knowledgeable about biology, but it’s true that her explanations can get confusing and feel disorganized. She seems to pull information out from all over the place, which can feel a bit overwhelming. However, as long as you’re willing to put in the effort, you can do very well in her class. Her tests are fairly hard, but once you get used to the wording and style of her questions, it gets better.
Honestly Mrs. Owen was probably one of the worst teachers I have ever had. She is a nice person but a terrible teacher. Not only did she NEVER explain the notes, she gives incredibly difficult test!! Her marking is absolutley outrageous and takes marks off for the silliest things. She made me hate gr11 Biology and I got a terrible mark despite the fact that I put in so much effort. She thinks a 65% is a "great" mark in Biology and if you want to get into University switch out of her class
Really sweet teacher, she just never really taught anything and her tests are probably the hardest tests I've ever had. Also she was never prepared and always confusing what she was teaching.
She never helped me. She only cared about the most intelligent students and didn't focus on the others that needed more help.
I love mrs Owens she is awesome! She is very knowledgeable and makes everything very interesting maybe that's just because I love biology. She expects alot for you and is a hard marker but over all I enjoy all my classes with her
I had Ms. Owens for grade. 9 science. I recall her being very understanding and helpful regarding my learning disabilities and issues with anxiety. I will always be thankful for her encouragement.
nice lady, although hardest marker I think I've ever had. She's completely ridiculous, if you have her study alot.
Her classes aren't bad, but she doesn't seem to know what she's talking about and marks extremely hard. She's nice, but doesn't even try to help.
I acutally don't mind her... although liking science definately helps...
she really has changed from a nice lady 2 hard + unhelpful-she never really offered help + her notes r lazy + confusing. i had such a hard time in her class, i had 2 teach myself.
Treats students like kindergarteners. Gives homework and tests on units never before taught.
nice lady~interesting classes~~~very helpful and understanding... high expectations for students, bit picky when comes to marking~~ overall it waz a good class
Ms. Owen is the best biology teacher ever. She explains topics wonderfully and makes all issues clear.
wonderful lady, high expectations, difficult but interesting class.
She was my grade 9 science teacher...she's awesome. She loves what she's doing and that's great :)
Nice lady, wants to be good teacher just isn't. Tough marker.
