She is the most inspiring and caring teacher even though she's a tough marker she is very fair and she connects on a deeper level with her students sharing her wisdom and life lessons through her literature studies. Most inspiring teacher I have ever had. She made great expectations connect to my life directly.

Mrs. Grimsley is a hard marker, but she gives you all of the information and help you need to succeed and thrive in her class. I had her for two years, my friend had her for three, and we both still love her to this day.

She has a reputation as an extremely strict teacher, but once you're in her class for a few weeks, you find out that she's actually not that scary. The one really bad thing about her is that she never really explains the criteria she's marking off of so the marks she gives seem totally random and unfair. If you're having trouble in her class, talk to her and she really helps you understand things better.

She is a very strict teacher and a hard marker, but we work more than the other teacher's students and get the same marks meaning we're smarter. During the LV I poetry unit, she will make you recite the exact definitions from the book.

Best english teacher I've ever had. She's a very hard marker and likes things done a certain way but will make you super prepared for exams. She does have favourites though so try to get her to like you as early in the year as possible.

Well she may know a lot and is very respected in the school, but she has "expectations" so there are kids that are smart and kids that are not, so if you are not in her upper category even if you do work that parallels that of the upper category she will still not give you a good mark.

a hard marker, but it is TOTALLY WORTH having her as your english teacher. over the first term, you learn how she marks and what she likes, and you can get great marks for the rest of the year. only do what she asks you to - no more, no less. i had her in levels 1 and 3, and i have not had any trouble with english since then. her lessons stick with you to the point that you'll never forget the difference between synecdoche and metonymy again, while the rest of your grade struggles over the exam

She is a very good teacher, but quite strict. She picks favorites early on, so make sure you get on her good side! But you will never have any trouble with English after a few years with her.

I personally don't like her. I used to be the best in English but as soon as I get her this year my mark went down so much. Her marking is too hard. She needs to relax, we're not university, we're grade 10's.
