2420L Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

Sooooo much work! Lab reports and list of organisms were due every class! She's very clear on what she expects of you! 2 practicals (both are hard) unknown organism and unknown report isn't too bad! Grades hard! Very understanding with personal issues! An A is possible, but you're gonna work for it!

"Amazing lectures" "Respected by students" "Would take again"

I love Goines! She has a love and a passion for Biology that is extremely evident when she teaches. No homework except for a group project. 4 tests, one of which was a take-home. All were 100 questions, but everything is straight from her notes and powerpoints; super easy, you just have to study. Took time to answer questions and explain fully.

Extremely easy teacher. She posted all of her notes after the first exam. Curved some tests. Test comes straight from powerpoint. One group presentation (micro). Also had her for lab, easy! Ask Q's for lab to know your Unknown, study for second practical.

Bio1301 LEC Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I dont think i had hw all year except in lab, and she gave us a take home exam so that was cool. The only thing i didnt like was that i felt like she put stuff on the test that we never even looked at. I even confirmed it with other classmates that had perfect attendance. Aside from that, she's pretty chill.

MICRO2420 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Had her for bio in 2010, decided to take her for micro bc I know she doesn't require book. If you study the notes from ppts you'll pass, plain & simple. Gives curves for her mistakes on tests...don't take for lab. We had 37 lab reports, a lot of work for a lab, and had to keep up with a list of bact we used each lab, it was annoying!

Bio1408 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

DO NOT TAKE. Yes she seems nice but she picks and chooses her favorite class. She gave my class 100 question tests every test and gave the same exact class after ours a take home test. She gives extra credit and after you do the tests she sometimes decides not to use it after we already did it and turned it in. Only take her if you have to.

Bio1408 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She does not post any notes online and her lecture is her reading off a power point that she expects you to write down as she reads them. Her test are hard when they shouldn't be because she twists the questions to confuse you. When our class asked her why she does it she said "this is college and you should know your name in Spanish and English"?

She is very helpful in lab and in lecture and really nice. Test are directly from the notes so you only fail if you dont study- you have to earn your grade. she made the class interesting and I very much enjoyed having her as a teacher!

Microbio Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Her "lectures" consisted of her reading directly from the power points. I'm used to professors that engage their students & actually make the course fun by using analogies that make the material easier to comprehend. If you want an easy A, she's it. I'm just relieved I didn't have her for the lab section...my lab instructor was actually competent.

Just reads off of her powerpoints without clear explanation. She grades assignments extremely late and has misplaced some of mine. The exams are suppose to be over her powerpoints... WRONG she adds things we havent been taught and the test questions are poorly written and ambiguous. I escaped with an A but BARELY, this class felt like a battle.

Love her! Tells you tests will be difficult but is always there to assist to make it easier. Never thought I would be as interested in this subject until taking her class...she tells u to study all notes but gives lots of easy questions to help your grade. wish she liked chemistry so i cld take her again!

Great teacher!! If it's something you don't understand she will help, even if it's outside of class time. She knows her stuff and is very calm and patient with everyone!! I definitely recommend anyone to take her! Tests straight from her notes for lecture and for lab just read over each exercise before class and you'll do great!!

Bio2316 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is horrible. Brings her kids to class. Review consists of her saying "study your notes", and the test questions dont even come from there. Doesnt show to class when she has catch up work in another class. If you just need a credit and dont care about the grade then she's ok... just don't expect to learn anything.
