Comment:
Marla is a nice teacher! She can be a bit hard to reach sometimes, but is good at answering questions during class. This was scheduled online, so you had to be on Zoom at a certain time, plus lots of quizzes and 2 major Lab cumulative exams. She tends to rant and her notes are all over the place, but other than that, she is a good teacher.

Im not one to post reviews on anything thats not truly deserved. Ive taken more courses at MCC than I can count & Marla is by far the absolute BEST! She is the definition of an outstanding teacher! She also tells the best stories that relate to class & makes it so much easier to learn. Youll never want another teacher again!

Marla was okay. She goes all over the place when lecturing. Usually have to record to go back. She goes fast and doesn't explain things very well, especially for lab. Minimal homework but tests are hard. No study guides. No extra credit. Tough grader.

She's sweet and passionate but she gets off track a lot. Her lectures are often disorganized. She goes too fast so often times I record her lectures and go back. 5 exams. 4 practicals. Constant studying and lots of homework. Tests are hard. Definitely need to work your butt off to earn a good grade.

Marla is the best! She is sometimes off track while talking and talks fast, so i had to record her lectures and listen back to them. She teaches in a way that makes you understand the material. She tells you what you need to know. She is always willing to help. You do have to work for a good grade. I highly recommend her! :)

Marla is hands down the best teacher I have ever had. She is so knowledgeable about everything and you can tell that she genuinely cares about every student. Whether you like the class or not, you will leave motivated and excited for the next class. If all professors were like Marla, every student would love class.

Marla is like the perfect parent: firm but fair. She loves micro and she will make you more passionate about the microbiological world than you ever thought you could be. Minimal homework but, you do need to study for exams fo sure. Record her lectures, listen to her podcasts. Most important, dont take anyone else for this class.

Marla is a GREAT professor. This class is HEAVY. Tough class, tons of information. Marla doesnt make you feel foolish and answers all questions. Memorizing is the only way to pass. You can not miss any labs, there is no make up.

Marla is my number 1 favorite professor. I try to take every course she teaches. She is passionate beyond belief and her lectures are packed full of information. She defines what is expected very clearly the first day of class. She does outlined notes on the board and goes into great detail in every section.

Marla is amazing. I would take every class with her if I could. She truly invests herself into her students. She wants to help you succeed and doesn't just care about a paycheck. I wish every teacher could be like Marla. She will make you work for your grade but she will help you every step of the way. You can tell she is meant to teach! Love her!

Her classes are not easy A's. Just wanted to clarify. Shes just such an incredible teacher that I felt wrong giving her less than 55 just to say she makes you work for your grade. She will challenge you but she stands by her students 100%. She will make sure you remember EVERYTHING you need to and makes herself available to help you! Love her!
