Ms.Robbins is an interesting teacher but I feel bad for you if you have difficulty with science she is not good at answering questions she thinks she is preparing you for highschool but I have been at high school and have not encountered any of the things she told me about. She is a ridiculously hard marker and her tests are way to hard. She is very strict and if she doesn't like you of the bat you are screwed. She can be very rude and doesn't give you a chance when talking. I feel bad for you

ms. robbins was a hard marker and could be mean sometimes but as long as you followed her instructions exactly the way she wrote them you can easily get a good mark. doing the cells unit with her made grade 10 bio so much easier. she also really cares about her students

I am currently a student of Karen Robbins. She is a nice person but has high expectations. she is very organized which is good and snaps at you a lot but she is a good teacher. Her quizzes are like tests and her tests are super super hard. But if you get on her good side and pay attention than you'll do just fine as one of her students.

Awful!!!She never listen to students,always think she was right.She will make me feel more confused when I ask her questions.

All she ever says is "make certain" which is super annoying!! Otherwise she is great at preparing you for high school. Not so great at answering your questions (she makes you more confused) she knows what she is talking about. VERY STRICT!!!!! very hard to understand. TESTS ARE BEYOND HARD. does NOT tell you whats going to be on the test. MARKS YOU VERY VERY HARD. very high expectations. I would not say she picks favourites. (loves it when you go in for extra help) overall : ok - good (ish)

She doesn't listen to reason, even when she is wrong and there is scientific proof against her. Never apologizes, and works completely out of a text book. That being said, when it comes to tests, if you don't study even the stuff she hasn't taught you, you won't do well. Good luck.

Ms Robbins was an average teacher. She knows a little bit about everything and effectively teaches her class the things they need to learn. However, she is rather impatient with students and often snaps at them. Has made several students cry. She can keep control over a classroom and does not give too much or too little homework. Has also brought her pet dog into the classroom on numerous occasions. Definitely not my favorite, but she is a respectable person.

This year science has been my favorite subject yet! Mss robbins unlike other teachers actually wants you to succeed. She cares about her students and makes science fun. We do many hands on experiments so you learn by doing. She can be strict but It prepares you for high school. As long you do your work and be active in class you have nothing to worry about.

Ms Robbins is honestly the most awful teacher I've ever had. She started to fail me, and because of that, i Had to spend all of my Time on science homework because if I failedmy parents would be really mad, so I couldn't do any other homework. Over all, she didn't teach anything and is a very bad teacher
