Nice teacher. Disorganized, but nice; I only found out the grade on my first test. She made the class seem fun, but it was still hard for me, however I'm a student with a learning disability. Somehow I was able to get a B in her class. I would recommend her, but not highly. Her frequent words are "fabulous" and "does everybody understand that."

Prof P. was awesome. Very funny and brings the scope of to other realms of life by relating real-life examples to what we are learning. Plenty of opportunities to get an A with more than enough bonus points possible on exams. Don't slack off though, especially if you don't have any experience in taking biology classes.

She's a nice person, VERY unorganized, NEVER to class on time, gets annoyed when you ask questions (unless a male), does not always post lectures & review sheets in the time frame she says she will. Have a final in 5 days and we're still waiting for the review sheet. Use her power points for the tests & you will be fine.

She's a very nice teacher. She's lenient when it comes to handing in labs. She's is however very veryyyy unorganized with notes. She goes so fast you don't even have time to copy the notes. She also can get annoying sometimes since she talks too much about herself and is loud

I took Dr. Penncavage's Introduction to Oceanography course this summer, I thought that it was a really good class. I want to major in accounting but if I change my mind, I will most likely major in Marine Biology. I have never been interested in science but she kept her class interesting, and was extremely passionate about her subject.

Good professor. She knows her subject very well, but my one complaint is that sometimes she isn't very clear and her notes are scattered. However, she will take the time to help you out if you are lost. Very nice woman. Encourages class discussions which can prove to be very interesting.

Great teacher. You go on like 5 or so field trips that ppl think are stupid but its fun and better than stayin in class. Very easy as long as you are there and do the work required. One final project that is super easy on power point as long as you can stand infront of class(one girl cried)

she is always late. she talks a lot about herself. when you ask a question she gets annoyed. she expects that you know everything about what she is talking about already.and when you ask for help she says read the text

Very nice lady. I get what other people are saing about how she doesnt help you that much, and gets mad when you have a question. But I think she just does that because she feels that college students should be able to figure it out on their own instead of walking you through everything like in grade school. In all, I liked her.

SHES FUNNY AND good at telling stories, but is very unhelpful. When i need to ask her things she can get nasty and has a bad attitude. she is disorganized, jumping from one topic to the next, espeically when it comes to trips. She is only good at giving bonus points, along i guess with fortunato.

disclaimer: she is a funny person and a great storyteller. that's it! she doesn't help the students at all. she ALWAYS arrives late. she expects the students to learn the lesson beforehand. she teaches like she's the only person in the room. she teaches as if every student in the room know what's she's talking about. 1/2

This class was great, this professor was great. Uses some powerpoint, which is right out of the textbook, but really puts a lot of the work on the board as diagrams. She will make sure that you write down what she wants you to know, and what will be on the tests.
