She only cares about her extension. Passionate but couldn't care less about people at lower levels or organizing trips she is responsible for

Dr Meikle is a really nice person and is enthusiastic about science, but I think she needs to work on explaining things and reinforcing ides rather than expecting us to magically absorb knowledge via osmosis or however she thinks it works. I think she would be a good teacher to some people, but her teaching style really just doesn't suit the way I learn.

i don't get it why she is called "DR" at all, i find other science teachers way better, i get biology more when the student teacher came and taught us, is the way she teach make everything difficult, and i don't like the way she treat students who don't understand biology, if people doesn't understand then she should be nice to them not be annoyed, i have to pretend that i'm okay and smile in the class.

when people were talking she doesn't pick the ones who she likes but others, often ignore people who she dislike, while others on their laptops she told our table to put it away ours.

So the thing you need to know about Dr Meikle is that she has favourites and she is often excited, scatterbrained and vague. However, if you're passionate about bio, you and her should get along, because she is too, and is usually pretty helpful.

She may be a 'doctor' but she can't teach. She expects us to read something and immediately understand it, without explaining or reinforcing in anyway.

She's really nice and means well, but I wish she wouldn't copy notes straight from the textbook. I thought we were supposed to have that for additional reading and notes, not just doubling-up?

Amazing woman. Always ready to go out of her way to help, particularly if she knows you're a keen student and ready to try.

She is a great teacher, I can actually focus in Biology now, and our off task subjects are actually about bio related things! Really friendly, though bit strict on lateness.
