I had her for Writer's Craft. She's a nice teacher when she actually comes to class.She's never been here for a full week without missing at least one day. She knows what she's talking about but rarely explains assignments. She doesn't reply to emails either. She also has messy handwriting making her feedback nearly impossible to read. Yet once you decipher the comments, they're usually quite helpful. Has very quick deadlines but takes a long time to mark the assignments.

Ms. tunnicliff is a really sweet lady
You never feel nervous if You have to talk to her. She holds your hand through essay writing constantly checking in and reviewing work. Easy marker if your smart enough to do anything.

Nicest teacher in the world. She really cares about us students, and wants us to succeed in the future. She was my role model, and the nicest human being I've ever met.

Her class was really easy and really fun, we got free gift cards (5$) during the Shakespeare unit for participating, we had timbits one time, and we only did 2 essays this year. Her marking is super easy, as long as it doesn't absolutely suck. She doesn't really play favourites within a class but plays favourites between classes. All of this was probably because our class was "perfect" (always listening, supportive etc) so basically she's good if your class is on her good side.

Very nice (if you don't get on her bad side), knows what she's doing, but expects quite a bit out of her students.

Doesn't explain anything in writer's craft. Expects her students to know what to do automatically. If we're lucky she'll give us one example. Really tough marker. Nice enough as a person, but I regret taking the class.

She's okay. Sometimes I wonder if she is only doing the job for the money- never really seems too enthusiastic and is a little bit cold. As a teacher she is pretty good though.

I haven't learned much in her Gr. 9 class. Just a lot of content and not a lot of skills. She's not bad, as far as teachers go; just a bit freaky sometimes. Only wish that she included poetry into the curriculum. Wasn't she a very good writer when she attended MD?

English teachers usually mark pretty hard. She tends to play favourites.

to be frank, i haven't learned a considerable amount from her class. yes, she's fun, she's quirky, positive, yadda yadda yadda, but she's put me inbetween not quite slacking and not quite obtaining any sort of knowledge/wisdom. but hey, she's the one teaching. maybe she has some sort of underlying message for us that we will know at the end of the year.

Good teacher, knows what she's doing. Don't get on her bad side. (But even if you do, she's not discriminatory. Just more... sarcastic.) She doesn't like it if you interrupt her uber-planned talk to ask a question. Wants you to wait until the end, SIGH.

Class could have been better if people would actually try to do some thinking. I think only 6 people answered questions on a regular basis in my class. The acting and games didn't bother me.
