BIO6 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The flipped lecture was scary at first but it ended up being the best thing to happen to me. I only received a B but it's a difficult course! She allows you to see past exams, has her lectures on YouTube, and MyCR is FILLED with excellent learning resources from past semesters. You will learn more in this class than any other class! Wendy's AMAZING

Bio-7 Physio Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

An intense course, as it should be. Study, focus, & participate in the lectures. In my opinion, you get the grade you deserve, based on the work that YOU do. I think Wendy's overall goal is that we come away confident that we can discuss the content of the class with confidence and accuracy. There should be more instructors like Wendy in the world.

bio 6 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Wendy is very smart and a very talented teacher. I love her classes--HOWEVER, if you require clean and concise delivery of material when learning, you will likely have a difficult time focusing, as she is often side-tracked. You will need to remain organized with content even when she isn't, which frustrates a lot of people…but, still incredible.

BIOL-6 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class is pure insanity. You must study every day or you wont make it. This doesn't include the time that it takes to "flip" the class, which is watching the lectures online and taking a ton of mandatory notes. You absolutely must be ready to memorize everything, no multiple choice! Her expectations are almost ridiculous. No other life allowed

Riggs lectures are Flipped, basically you watch the lecture on your own time and discuss the content the next day. What ever you put into the class is what you'll get out of it. pretty straight forward but difficult. lots of material and new content. I highly recommend her, be prepare to dedicate a good amount of time. enjoy..

bio 6 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

You will watch lectures outside of school. LOTS of time dedication, but she will be putting in at least the amount you are (probably a lot more). Content heavy, quizzes every lab, exams are tough but never have any real surprise questions. She is awesome, open-minded and creates a dynamic learning environment. She is a great teacher.

My absolute favorite teacher hands down! She is so full of light and loves what she is teaching about! She is a true inspiration and causes you to fall in love with what you are learning! She is very clear and helpful and goes above & beyond for her students! STUDY for her tests though, she's serious about her students learning the material!

OMG! LOVED this instructor! She went out of her way to make sure we understood the material. Made a number of different virtual games to assist our learning. Was totally fired up and knowledgeable about the subject. Others have said she was 'scatterbrained'...NOT IN THE LEAST! She even recorded study groups in case you couldn't be there. AWESOME!

Professor Jones is a great teacher. She took time to understand my calcaneal concerns and provide unique insights. I hope to take another class from her.

I have known Riggs sine I was in high school, she has always been a fun, enthusiastic teacher who loves what she does. True she maybe a little scatter brained but she is more than helpful if a student doesn't understand the material. She's awesome, I have had her as my general biology teacher and now she's my teacher in physiology as well.

I just dropped Wendy's anatomy class because it was a trainwreck. I have never had her before and enjoyed her as a person but will never take her again. She gives hard exams, and challenging quizes daily which make up 15 percent of your grade.. She is unprepared. I dont think she has taught it before.

wendy is a fun professor, but a little scatterbrained. She lets her students sidetrack her a little to easily. Lab work is generally fun and she offers good support.

biobio Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

One of the best professors ever. Extremely enthusiastic. Answers questions. Uses various different media to help get her point across. Does interesting experiments. Tests on what she teaches. Is friendly, funny, and will come on the weekends to hold study groups! She held a study group for us when we weren't even in her class! TAKE RIGGS! The BEST!

Bio1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Wendy is an amazing dynamic teacher. She takes an otherwise boring subject and makes it exciting. Test are really hard but she does everything, other than give you the answers, to help you make it! If you are failing, chances are you need to look at your own study habits. I wish all teachers were like Wendy!! You would take away so much more!

Useless lectures, never covers everything you need to know in class. No need to go to class, she wastes your time talking about whatever pops into her ADD brain, and her tests look like they were thrown together a few days prior (because they were). On the plus side, amazing volume of resources, and an excited teacher.

biole119 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She's the BEST TEACHER I've ever had. She loves the subject and really wants everyone to understand it. The negative comments I read below were from last year and it seems like she improved a ton. She video records each class and posts them to Tegrity thru myCR. She is really out there to have everyone understand and pass the class.
