My daughter is currently taking Mrs. Paine’s Honors Biology class. I was hesitant about an online science course but I’m very glad we did it. Mrs. Paine gives clear, step by step, instructions, and my daughter has had a successful online classroom experience.
Mrs Paine has high, clearly-stated, standards that she helps the students achieve. Near the beginning of the course she requested a phone conference with us regarding my daughter’s scores. She had identified specific areas where my daughter could improve her grade, and she encouraged her to do so.
She models kindness and respect towards my daughter and our family while insisting on integrity and respect in return. For example, last semester Mrs. Paine extended a deadline for my daughter when she had the flu, then she followed up with an email asking about her health. She has also made accommodations for family events.
Mrs. Paine has earned our respect with her professionalism, her well organized class, her high standards, and her commitment to bringing out the best in her students. I highly recommend her class.
