Shes a horrible teacher. You try to answer a question and if you answer wrong she'll roast you in front of the whole class. And when no one answers the question she gets mad. Goes far off topic. Doesnt teach the curriculum. Talks about her life. Spends atleast 1 week to watch romeo and juliet because she spends atleast 30 mins explaining one line. Out of the whole period you only get about 20 mins of useful knowledge. Hard marker. Favors students. If you get her switch out of her class

Where do I begin? Mrs. Long is a very knowledgeable teacher, and has great potential. However, she expects students to have almost as much knowledge as her, without teaching. Students are arfaid to answer questions, because when you do she calls you out in front of the class if you are wrong, or still makes it seem as though you are wrong if you answer correctly - and gets pissed off when people don't answer. Goes of on rants frequently - while amusing, they reduce the amount of time we have to

Absolutely stellar teacher and amazing personality. The best teacher I have ever had in my life, I have learned so much from her. All you underachievers getting below 80s should really consider taking college english, as long as you do your homework and give your best you are guaranteed an 80. If you see the word Longue on your schedule on the first day of school consider yourself blessed, and don't you dare make that walk to the guidance counselor to change your schedule.

I had Ms. Long in grade ten and grade twelve. I know a lot students do not like her, but trust me when you finish high school and continue on your education in post secondary, you come to realize how helpful and knowledgeable she is and really prepares students. When I was taking English in College, I found the course to be very easy (easier than grade 12 English) and part of that I credit Ms. Long for.

I only had her when I was in grade 12, and I have to say she is possibly the best english teacher Erindale has to offer. Sure she can be hard on you, but that is only when you deserved it. As long as you did the work and studied you would/ will do fine. She is scary to approach at first but make a good impression and show her proper respect and she'll give it right back tenfold.

While she is very knowledgeable Mrs.Long teaches her class as though it is 4th year university when in fact it is grade 11. A very strict marker. If and when you get her I recommend switching out if at all possible. She is very opinionated and exerts it freely. My class average is a 62% and I am getting a 60%. She strays off topic frequently and then precedes to test the class on material that was never learned during class because of her off topic lectures. Nice but sadly the worst teacher at E

Smart lady, but god damn she can not teach. She's way too strict, marks most of your work wrong and doesn't properly explain what was done wrong but expects it back corrected. She also teaches college level classes like an actual university class, which in turn made our marks drop and lower our chances of getting into an actual university.

Absolutely the worst teacher I have ever had. I had her a couple of years ago. She not only made her students cry and give up hope for pursuing further education but was just absolutely rigid and the worst teacher I have ever come across. All the English classes comprised of over 25 students; whereas, Ms. Long's class only had 7 people remaining by the end of the year! The remaining 7 either stayed back a year or had to take English again during the summer to get into University!

Ms.Long is among the best teacher's at ESS. She was always there to help me when I wanted it. All the students told me not to take her class as I was new to Canada and that I won't pass her class but I actually passed her class because I was hardworking

she is a very well educated woman, however she is not a good teacher. she often gets extremely off topic, and other than her notes I don't feel like I gained much from being in her class. she constantly undermines your work, I have become to doubt myself and she has in total made 3 people cry in my class, she is a heartless woman and the majority of the class is failing. If you get in her class I suggest you get out as quickly as possible.

The ratings don't provide you with ranking for effectiveness. She wasn't easy, she made you learn and graded you fairly. She was helpful but she prompted independent learning which is better in the long run. She wasn't popular but who cares!! She is your teacher. She prepared me well for academic success.

she may not be a favourite among students, but mostly because she is a difficult teacher. i will admit, when it comes to school related help, she dosent give the answers your probably after. but go to her for any out-of-school related help and shes the most amazing woman. her difficult teaching style does prove to be very helpful in the longrun, but for all of you that are expecting t have her note this, she DOES NOT put up with bull

It's been over 10 years but I remember her fondly. She rewarded both ability and effort equally (I had more of the latter).She was the brightest light that showed the way and made education enjoyable.
