Very picky. "Be picky because she is<3" she made us write that on our papers. Kinda crazy, which made her funny. Exams are really easy. I don't know if theory is easy or hard because I sucked at it. She never really helped me, just kept telling me to find my mistakes. That was a flaw. Pretty good teacher though. I think she left though???

Miss A if you read this it's Yiming. Although you only taught me for half a semester I'd like to thank you for the fun times in your music room. Have a good life. Come visit sometime.

It's true that if you were on her good side, life was easier so I can certainly understand those who marked her down for this. I took three years of music and to this day remember those classes fondly. It left a major void in my heart when I stopped band practise. I am proud to have been one of the first classes she ever taught when she started in 1987. It'll be 30 years soon. Thanks for the memories Ms A.

To explain the indefatigable Ms. A. to students who have never had her is tough. You have to understand the combination of courage and intellect that creates a teacher like her.

Never, never boring. Smart. Caring. Challenges you to do your best. Offers unlimited opportunities to fix your mark. What more can you ask for? (If there's a rule not to eat in the hall, don't eat in the hall. I can't believe some losers rate teachers on school rules!)

Teaches well but very hard on students. Demands 110% and if she does not get it, well you do not want to do that. More or less it is her way/ view or no way at all. Her marking on tests is very strict!! You have to be deadly accurate when writting scales, no touching of the lines at all unless you mean to! Have lost so many marks when written scales and say10% of circle is not between the lines, crazy.

Granted, she knows her stuff. However, she's immature, judgmental, and extreme if you are a) male, b) not dedicating your life to her class, or c) expressing contrasting opinions.

Ms A is pretty cool; she's intense, but she's an awesome music teacher. She has a bit of a childish way of dealing with problems though - like the silent treatment...grow up...

She won't notice you in grade 9...10...but 11 and 12 you will truly meet her. She really does care about her students, you just have to see past her bi-polar personality.
