Mrs. Hills (a.k.a. Chills) is my favourite teacher ever, she is very funny and helpful, but is strict when needed. She really understands students and understands what to do to help them out. She is always in an uplifting mood and I would recommend her anyday of the week! I wish there were more teachers like this!

Chills (as we call her) is honestly one of the most easy going, genuinely nice teachers I've ever had. AFter having her for all 4 years of school she's almost like a friend. In class, she is very helpful and knowledgeable about music. If you hand everything in on time and practice your instrument often enough, it will be smooth sailing for you. If not, she will hunt you down. She gets a bit wild sometimes and likes to tell music theory related jokes a lot so be prepared for that

I really liked ms. Hills. Really funny, really nice and very helpful. I wasn't very good with notes at the beginning of the semester but now i can play almost all the higher notes! She talks a lot about her stories which can most of the time be very funny.

Ms. Hills is a really good music teacher, but you don't really know if she likes you until after you've had her for a few years. She is really knowledgeable when it comes to theory and music in general. Her random story moments are pretty funny too!

She obviously wasn't the MOST popular teacher, but still decent. Whenever she gives you a mark, she tells you what to improve on, but doesn't help you improve, but gives good marks.

you definitely end up loving ms. hills after spending a couple of years with her, if you only have her for one semester and you're a trouble maker you'll probably hate her, but she definitely grows on

I had her for grade 10 music last year, and honestly, I had a fabulous time. She gave us a lot of creative freedom and i had a great time. Others don't get along with her, but our class had great fun

She's presumptuous, at best. Although she does little to earn our respect, she demands and expects it. I doubt she was particularly missed during her leave.

She's not a bad teacher overall, but she is without a doubt tone-deaf.

Arguable the laziest teacher in the school. Students put forth a lot of time and effort into preparing assignment and she doesn't bother to read them. Simply assigns a level 3.
