Very friendly and approachable teacher, although she can be a bit flustered sometimes. Generally quite knowledgeable but she has a very simple, concise and easy to follow way of explaining the more complex of ideas and processes that you get in Biology. Also organizes Biology Clinics if you fall behind so is very helpful.

Turned up to 2 lessons in a row 15 minutes late and blamed us for it. Made appointments with students that she "forgot" without so much as an apology
7.8/10 too much effort

loves to use the powerpoints which aren't always appropriate to the teaching level but overall a pretty good teacher, also expects discipline from her class

different style to teaching. a LOT of powerpoint. (not necessarily a bad thing) a lot of sheets (maybe not so good) and she's crazy about sticking to the syllibus which can be a tad boring at times but apart from that aneasy lesson with points of educational nuggets.

In Year 7 we had her for Biology and I thought she was excellent and helped the class to an average exam score of over 80%. However, in Year 8 we had her for Chemistry and our average exam score was about 55%. Says a lot about her Biology teaching, and she teaches well.

An excellent Biology teacher, she manages to teach the whole class at once. She is also willing to give up her free time to help those who are slightly stuck.

Has a habit of using powerpoint to the extremes, then just reads off it. Different approach to the older school teachers. Doesn't really work.
