Dr. Karen Joseph Reviews

Athena M. (Student in Biology) – April 30, 2021

I love this biology class! It is so much fun, and I really learned a ton of information this year. Dr. Joseph is such a supportive and kind teacher to have. You can really tell how much she loves science and teaching science to others. I would not recommend anyone more than her for science class. Through her classes, I have learned just how much science fascinates me; I may even pursue a career in the field.

Logan B. (Student in The Science of Water) – April 30, 2021

The course is a LOT of fun and I would very much recommend it to other students of aim academy. Dr joseph has so many fun games and videos to do and watch! And so far all the classes i’ve taken have taught me so much about different topics.

Elizabeth V. (Student in Life Science) – April 30, 2021

I absolutely loved this course and the teacher! Live classes are super interactive and I look forward to them every week! The lessons are very interesting, especially when there are more things like videos and projects. The teacher is very fun, kind, and super flexible with our schedules.

Emma R. (Student in Biology) – April 30, 2021

I absolutely love Dr. Joseph as my science teacher. Throughout her course, not only do you learn about biology, but she makes it enjoyable. She doesn’t push her students to the brink where you end up crying in your bed like most high school classes. She focuses on making sure you learn the information rather than making the course impossible with super hard quizzes that stress you out. I also appreciate how organized her course is because I love organization. I have had Dr. Joseph as my teacher for two years, and I wish I could have her for all of my science classes. One thing I really appreciate about her is how she gets back to you on every email you send her, whereas a lot of teachers don’t. I 100% recommend this class and any of her courses to all ages. If you enroll your student in one of her classes, not only will they learn about science, but they will learn to enjoy it rather than dread it.

This was by far the best science class Ive ever taken in my life. The lessons and assignments helped me to learn about the topic very easily and quickly. The zoom classes every week helped me to socialize and talk to my fellow students. I would recommend this class to anyone that’s trying to learn science and have a great time while doing it.

Lily E. (Student in Biology) – April 28, 2021

I am not a big science person, but this course was SO interesting and amazing to learn about!! Miss Joseph is one of the BEST teachers i’ve ever had, and she is truly what made the class as great as it was! She is one of the most incredible teachers i’ve ever had and I could literally go on and on about her and her class! Miss Joseph is so loving, friendly, caring, encouraging, helpful, genuine, understanding, flexible, and I don’t think i’ve ever had a teacher (outside of my mom) who’s so willing to help us when we don’t understand something! I also love how she teaches us to not just memorize a bunch of facts, but how she teaches us to use the resources we have when we don’t know an answer to something. (because of that, I feel like I haven’t just learned a ton about Biology, but I actually remember a ton of it too!) Miss Joseph also does a wonderful job of teaching/showing us how to write a lab report, and all the assignments we had were completely doable! There was never anything so challenging I had to spend hours on it, and also never anything so easy I was done within minutes. It was the perfect amount of challenge! 🙂 I’ve loved being in Miss Josephs class and having her for my teacher this past year so so much!! This has easily been my favorite science class i’ve ever taken, and i’d recommend it and her to literally everyone! 🙂

This course has been phenomenal. There is so much learning in each live class and assignment. Dr. Joseph has done an outstanding job teaching Life Science. I have learned so much through out this year. She makes everything understandable, but also short. Each every day assignment is well written and organized. The assignments only take about 10-15 min a day. So, if you’re not the person who is all about reading, I would definitely recommend this course!

Brigid P. (Student in Life Science 2-Botany and Human Biology) – June 22, 2020

Dr. Karen is a very warm and caring teacher. This was a challenging course, but she made it very enjoyable for the students.

Cheyenne F. (Student in Life Science 2 – Botany and Human Biology) – May 5, 2020

Life science was a lot of fun this year! Thank you so much for a great class. I learned a lot through this semester. I thought that having all those activities was great because for me it was fun and I learned quite well from it. I think my favorite topic we learned over was cells (especially making the cell module). For me science was something I did not enjoy but now it is one of my favorite subjects in school. Overall, thank you Dr. Joseph it was a fun class and great to meet new people.

Mary Louise C. (Student in Life Science 2 – Botany and Human Biology) – May 12, 2020

This class was absolutely one of my favorites I have ever taken! The lessons are easy to understand and the live classes are something to look forward to every week. Dr. Joseph is so kind and always willing to help you with anything that is hard to understand. Thank you Dr. Joseph!

Carolyn Mattingly (Parent in Life Science 1 and 2) – April 18th, 2020

This class has been so interesting and informative for my daughter. Dr. Joseph made learning fun, and she makes the connection of science and every-day-life easy to see. She is a special teacher. I can honestly say that this is my daughter’s favorite class this year. I am so excited that Dr. Joseph is now teaching Biology; Athena has already signed up!

Student (Life Science 1 — Zoology) – May 3, 2019

This class was fun and very interesting. Dr. Joseph did a great job on teaching the content and the activities she provided were helpful too. I learned a lot more info about animals and ones I didn’t know about, and how their anatomy functions. All in all, I would highly recommend this class if you are interested and want to learn more about animals.

Wonderful class! Loved how Dr. Joseph presented the material on the class page in various ways, from fascinating videos to helpful audio links. She is caring and encouraging, and she made the live classes fun. What a great way to learn about science by using water! Thank you, Dr. Joseph!


Your class content and videos are superb – my son often calls me over to watch with him (and I love how you emphasize detailed answers and complete sentences – he told me you want him to capitalize just like I do!)


You teach in such a way that makes the complicated material easier to understand and FUN!

Dr. Joseph has helped me improve as a student by making her lessons very interesting and always being open to questions. She makes science come alive she always encourages me to think. She says questions lead to learning, so I should never stop questioning. When we had a lesson where the book contradicted the popular thought about something, Dr. Joseph went way above and beyond to research this topic and explain to me all the myriad complexities of the issue. It was fascinating. I really appreciated her effort. Not many teachers would have gone so far to satisfy the curiosity of one student.

Dr. Joseph has made learning such a fun and enjoyable experience for me this year. She uses her creativity to make the lessons more understandable and fun. I am really enjoying her class this year! She makes videos of experiments she’s performed, she uses pictures and diagrams to give us a visual of what she’s teaching, and she is always there and willing to help.


Dr. Joseph always encourages me and tells me what I’m doing well. I started school late and had to make up a lot of work. Because of her encouraging me and always telling me to do my best, I got everything completed and was caught up with my class in less than 2 weeks. She shows us lots of videos that are found online or she will make videos for experiments. She also had us do a lot of creative activities.


Dr. Joseph is one of the better teachers I have had this year. She was very thorough with her lessons and she knows what she’s talking about. She always tries to include humor in her lessons. She’s very responsive to what we have to say or if we have any concerns. She was just an all-around good teacher.

P. S.  

Dr. Joseph is my human anatomy and physiology teacher, and I honestly have to say that it is one of my favorite classes. I have learned so much, and I continue to learn from her lessons each day. Her teaching abilities are great, and the style she uses makes me understand the lesson. There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t walk around the house stating “did you know” facts that I learned in her class. She brings a completely new meaning to “you learn something new everyday.” She has made a huge difference in my life. I think the main reason I like this class is because of who she is. Anyone can teach me the exact same lessons. But she makes me want to learn those lessons and want to explore them on my own. You may not want to learn, but I guarantee that Dr. Joseph will teach you in a way that you have not seen before.

S. P.  

Dr. Joseph has helped me improve as a student by asking insightful questions. She asks questions that make you apply what you have just learned to real life situations and her questions make you think through what you have learned. When she teaches she doesn’t just give lectures. Instead she has interesting projects, she explains everything thoroughly, makes connections, and even videotapes herself performing lab experiments. She has opened my eyes to the world of the human body. Through her teaching I’m realizing that the human body is very complex and intricate. This realization has brought me to an appreciation for how our bodies function.


Dr. Joseph congratulates you when you succeed and helps you to understand when you don’t. Dr. Joseph cares about each of her students and is open to discussions about things we agree or disagree on. Dr Joseph is willing, helpful, and kind-hearted.


Dr. Joseph always answers all my curious questions about her course. She’s always willing to help out in any way possible. She uses different online videos, websites, and neat experiments to try out so the students get to see things in real life, which is hard to do in cyber school.
