If you're a very smart student you should be fine. However, if you're not bright, you're catching a 50 for a fact.

Very kind person unless you are someone who talks a lot in class. She is a strict teacher and most of the time you will leave her class more confused than when you came in because she's not the best at explaining things and her tests often have questions she never went over in class. Biology is honestly one of the easiest courses out there, and it's honestly disappointing that Tomcala can't teach it well. You're better off reading the book + taking notes in class than listening to her lectures

Though Mrs. Tomcala is very strict and and quite an "interesting" character, she knows her stuff and will teach you what she needs to know.

She is a great teacher. Kind and knowledgable. If you didn't do well it is because you put no time into anything.

I couldn't understand what she was saying when she was teaching. I tried asking her for help by myself, but left just as confused. She's a nice person, but not a good teacher.

Didn't mind her... She was a decent teacher. Don't be fooled though, she may look up at the ceiling non stop but she spots cell phones like a hawk.

I think we're all a little too harsh. She's great if you get to know her, and she's actually a good cook! Obviously not for everyone, but you must adapt to everyone. She knows her stuff.

She's confusing and avoids your question. She thinks she's answered it but she really hasn't. However, she does care about you as a person.
