She can not teach, she is my math and science teacher at Kits and she is completely useless. Gives unclear instructions then gets angry when I ask for help. She is just some useless woman on a power trip/

Have her as an online BIO 11 Teacher. I honeslty feel like she marks assignments based on her mood. Got 50 percent on my final exam because I didn't give enough detail when you only get half a page to write the whole speciation theory.

had her for bio 12 in '04. her teaching style is unique in that she used fill in the blanks sheets for the entire semester as notes. it was understandable but too made us study too much info than necessary. she isn't the nicest person in the world. its all business. you know, be a student and do your homework or get finger wagging from her. she needs a chill pill. at least shes is approachable if you take the effort to seek help after school if you need it.

Stella Horng is a horrible teacher. I took her Biology 11 online she is a joke. She gave no help, no breakdowns for the marks she gave and half assed comments about the tests. The fact that she is teaching youth terrifies me, she's an idiot.

She takes her notes and review packages from other teachers online, even though the information is irrelevant. Her quizzes are at least 50 questions and if you have her first block, she wastes the first half hour photocopying and explaining the numerous errors made in her test leaving you with an unreasonable amount of time to take the test. She acts so busy even though she only works on day 2's and teaches two pairs of the EXACT SAME CLASS.

I had her for IB biology. By far she is the worst. Very knowledgeable but doesn't know how to teach! She doesn't understand how to drill the facts in our heads. I disliked the fact that her notes strayed off the IB syllabus, meaning it would NOT be in the May exams, yet she still tests us on it. She also gave a lot of pointless exercises that were extremely time consuming like quadrats and seasonal observation reports, these didnt count for predicteds nor helped us for teh May exams - pointless.

Dr Gabbott may truly believe that she is a wonderful teacher. If so, she needs to start teaching. I doubt there is a single student out there who is willing to agree that she puts an effort into teaching what the students want to learn (the syllabus) rather than about her family. Also, she doesn't seem to like to confront students who have issues/problems with her teaching style/expectations.

she teaches us material AFTER our two quizzes, which most people barely passed. she doesn't teach. assigns you to the textbook to fill out blanks, does a bunch of labs and doesn't check if you understand anything at all, and then gives you quizzes and tests back to back. nice person, but can't teach.

was my ib science 10 teacher. Didn't think she was much of a great science teacher since she spend portion of the time lecturing on our behavious rather than teaching. In terms of teaching, she's did quite a good job of explaining but her test are hard and long. her notes were also pretty easy to understand. overall she isn't a bad teacher but still has a big gap for improvement.

The worst science teacher on the planet. Not because she's hard, not because of her workload, but because she simply doesn't make any sense whatsoever. She thinks that her packages are very smart and concise, while they are just the textbook written over again with gaps in them. Why does she give them to us? So we can learn from the textbook and at home of course! Why is that? Because she's too lazy to teach us! She gives us everything to do, takes in some of it, and gives back none. Why? B/C SHE's TOO LAZY

I'm really bad a science and I was orriginally in Dr. Gabbott's class, IB just transfered me into her class without me OKing it, she's so useless, it's been 3 weeks and we haven't learned anything at all. Sure she's a nice enough person, but I wouldn't mind learning stuff so that I have time to understand it wrather than wasting half the year on personality tests and hearing about her dog.

Miss Horng is hard, but she teaches really clearly, like everything you need to know, and the booklets she hands out for each chapter is soo helpful!..especially on quizes, just study the booklet~ many of the questions on her tests are tricky and are application questions, so dont just memorize vocab, cause that'll get you no where! Over all she's a great teacher!
