Such a great teacher. She's inspired me to continue to do biology (life science) in university and pursue a career related to biology in the future. She's so enthusiastic and really want us to love biology too and even though there is a lot of note taking during class, I think she wants us to be successful.

AMAZINGGG i hated science before she taught me and she made it interesting, and i actually didnt fall asleep in class. She really cares about us being successful and she makes science fun and interesting. She really wants our attention to be focused on learning and she wants us to be excited to know more. Honestly couldn't have asked for a better science teacher wish i could have her every year. The other science teachers are so boring, i cant even learn

She may be a strict and tough teacher but that's what prepares her students for everything on the road ahead. It is so obvious that everything she does is for the benefit of her students. She's so passionate about what she does and incredibly knowledgeable. The most motivating and inspiring teacher I think I've ever had. It's SO important for a teacher to make sure that his or her students are not just memorizing the concepts taught in class but that they are understanding it. AMAZING TEACHER!!!

I have to agree with the others here about how Ms. Ogilvy is hands down the coolest, funniest, most awesome teacher ever! You can tell that she is really passionate about what she is teaching, and she makes sure that every single student in her class understands what the material is all about. She is more than willing to help you if you have any questions, so DON'T HESITATE TO ASK. I respect her so much! I'm thankful to the guidance for changing my timetable and moving me to her class :D

Hands down one of the most enjoyable teachers I've ever had. She had a real passion for what she taught, and was real funny to boot. Memorable quotes: "You know how there's always dust floating about your house? That's your family ['s skin cells]."

Because 500 characters wasn't enough! Ms. Ogilvy is just an inspiration because there is nobody else who is more passionate in teaching what they love so much. She definitely knows WAY MORE than the textbook. And she doesn't just teach, she FEELS it. In every class you are able to learn something new. She's not "hard" either. She teaches us how to understand the content and not just how to regurgitate it. Such a kind and quirky person to be around as well. Makes biology fun!
