Feb 11, 2015 Mme. Fantaci needs to learn how to keep her personal events at home and not take it out on us students. I was the only one in her class taking the B2 and she didn't help me till five minutes before my interview. She constantly interrupts you and wont let you finish your sentence or clarify your sentence. If she's really busy she'll ask you to write your question on a paper and then not read it. My mark dropped by 8% and I did everything on time, by the end of the semester she dislike me. Flag Rating
Dec 29, 2014 Mme. Fantacci is a good teacher. She explains French grammar concepts very well. The only problem is that once you get on her bad side, it's hard to do well in her class. She will also have long and uncomfortable talks with students she doesn't like or who she believes have disrespected her. On the other hand, if Mme. Fantacci likes you and you try hard to succeed in her class, it is extremely rewarding. Make sure to do all of your work and hand in things on time!! Flag Rating

1. She doesn't believe in the Holocaust.
2. She thinks depression will go away if you just don't talk about it.
3. She doesn't believe in the Holocaust.
4. She'll go berserk if you call her 'tu.'
5. SHE DOESN'T BELIEVE IN THE FREAKING HOLOCAUST. Flag Rating
Nov 11, 2014 It makes me sad to see her average rate, she deserves higher. I truly enjoyed Mme Fantaccis class. She was so sweet and even made pizza last year! She taught me so much more than my current teacher. Yes, she is a strict teacher but strict is better than being laid back. She is a smart woman and knows what she is doing. Flag Rating
Nov 11, 2014 Least favourite teacher in grade 9. She made me stay for detention after we had a debate because I was speaking too "powerfully". What? Flag Rating
Jun 08, 2014 she will make fun of us in front of other students. she will yell at us infront of other students and she only seems to care about her self. She never gave back half of my work so i was unaware of my progress in the class until reportcards! Flag Rating
Jan 26, 2014 Everyone has mixed opinions about her, but I think overall she is great at teaching. She knows a LOT about french and grammar and is a very passionate speaker. Just be careful on getting your assignments in on time and PARTICIPATE in her class! She loves volunteers. Work hard and you'll be fine., Flag Rating
Oct 09, 2013 she thinks she is an amazing teacher but she really isnt. she is always shoving her opinion on the class Flag Rating

Mme. Fantacci has never given me room to learn. SHe ridicules students in front of the class and will even go to the extent of treating them as idiots if they don't know the answer to a question. The worst part is is that i think she truly believes that she's a good teacher. ALthough she does know a lot about french grammar, she isn't able to teach it. I feel like i've hit a wall this year and will be really behind when it comes to grade 11 french next year.
Mar 27, 2013 Basically she has really no respect for anyone but her self. She never answers your questions. She asks like the whole class is full of idiots and she is like God or something. She is extremely condescending and will randomly snap at your for doing nothing at all. Never try and help anyone out in her class because she wants people to fail on their own and not get any help from their classmates. She dose know her stuff though, I can give her that. Can't even stand talking to her anymore! Flag Rating
Aug 06, 2012 Mme. Fantacci is a great teacher. She can be very strict if you are on her bad side though. She is friendly and helpful. She makes class fun:) we had drama presentations and everything! It was a pleasure being in her class. Flag Rating
Jun 04, 2012 She's not a very helpful teacher. I found she is very disorganized and drifts off topic a lot to stuff she says we won't need to know at all for the course but explains it all anyway. If you need extra help she doesn't do it one on one she just sends you home with the textbook which doesn't really help at all. Has a big temper. We get a lot of lectures from her in class. She doesn't really know how to help if we don't get it :/ Flag Rating
Mar 25, 2012 Mme Fantacci was sort of a hard teacher at first and then she got really really great. She was a great teacher but i don't really want her again. Flag Rating
Jan 23, 2012 Mme. Fantaci is very strict, but if she sees that you are trying she respects you, especially if you participate. I learned more from her than any of my other teachers. Just make sure to show that you respect her and she will appreciate and be willing to help you. Flag Rating
Jan 21, 2012 I don't understand why everybody hates her! She's an amazing teacher. I have her for extended French and she knows her stuff. She takes your opinions into consideration, like if you don't think your ready for a test, she'll change the date. She makes class fun, we do a lot of fun drama presentations and stuff! I feel like I'll learn something this year! Haha Flag Rating
Jan 18, 2012 she is the worst teacher that I have ever had the only one good thing about her is that she doesnt give that much homework other than that absalout nightmare try anything to get out of her class she gets mad at students for the dumbest reasos and talks to everyone like shes above them she told a girl in my class with insomnia that she doesnt need to take medication she just need to think about falling asleep and that she didnt have insomnia she just thought she did. She is prone to mood swings Flag Rating
Nov 22, 2011 Mme Fantacci's set in what some might consider her fairly odd ways and I've never seen someone tangent with as much length and frequency as she does. She's nothing exceptional in terms of her ability to cram knowledge into our heads, but her approach to learning French is great. She genuinely cares about her subject and her students and will do just about anything to help us and make sure we all understand. Grammatical genius, that one. I really don't understand some of the comments about her Flag Rating
Sep 11, 2011 Look, she's not as bad as everyone's saying. I actually learned a lot in her class. She is actually a grammar and language genius, and if you pay attention to her lectures, you can pick up tons. She sometimes spends too long on a point of grammar after she teaches it though. If you can get around her insanity and clairvoyant claims, she can be a pretty good teacher. Flag Rating
Jun 04, 2011 she breaks down to easily. Flag Rating

Mar 10, 2011 ugh she drove me nuts! you ask her a question and she goes on about something completely different! she doesn't understand anything and doesn't seem to get the hint that nobody likes to spend a french class listening to her talk about france and their marvelous art. If she loves france so much then maybe she should go ad teach there? i seriously don't know why she's still teaching at canterbury! Flag Rating
Feb 26, 2011 Best French teacher ever! I learned so much from her, she's a great teacher if you WANT to learn, because she'll know if you do ;P and she really tries hard to make everybody understand. Thank you!! Flag Rating
Jan 31, 2011 worst teacher iver ever had Flag Rating
Jan 23, 2011 She makes class frustrating because she's never quite sure about what she's doing. I also don't get the impression that she cares about her students at all. Flag Rating
Jan 19, 2011 She has trouble understanding student's questions, and therefore beats around the bush instead of answering them directly. She also gives lots of extra information about grammer that we don't need to know before we understand the basics, leaving her entire class confused and unsure about what we learned. She assigns questions or work and never asks for it again, and she is very vague about all of her assignments, and will change them in the last minute. Flag Rating
