Dr. Gauci is crazy knowledgeable! She is a fantastic teacher if you are willing to put in work in her class and try. Her marks reflect the amount of work you put in, and it isn't impossible to get high marks. She doesn't help much when you ask her questions in class as she will often respond with another question and her tests are quite difficult, but if you read the textbook and do extra research she will notice and you will do well! I was forced to focus in her class which helped me love chem

Dr. Gauci is one of the most influencial teachers I've had throughout my life. Not only is she very interested in th subjects she teaches, but above all, she is a completely fair marker. If you try to do well, you will obtain a mark that reflects your work. Dr. Gauci is always giving students opportunities outside the classroom to participate in various competitions and volunteer positions. But depending on who you are, you will either greatly enjoy her class or hate it.

I have had Dr. Gauci for several classes at northern and have slowly began to become less confident in all of the topics that she has taught me. She should not be a teacher as she does not care to help her students and instead makes them regret taking Chem as it does nothing but drop their average. I'm praying for you if you get Gauc.

Yes, Dr. Gauci really forces you to learn chemistry. People always say "you'll be so ready for University science!" But, considering the level of difficulty of her course, what is the point of being super prepared for University if you can't even make it into the program because of her dropping your mark? No matter how hard you work, you will never do as well as you want to do.

Very Knowledgeable. Loves singing!!!!! I've learned more in a week of her class that in a month of being in certain other classes.
Plus she's also interested in what she teaches (like Mr Ross), which is a very good quality for a teacher to have.

To the person underneath, anyone who says that Dr. Gauci is a bad teacher are those who don't try in school. In her grade 12 biotechnology class, she gives out a lot of work and homework, but if you do them, and pay attention in class, the course is a breeze. She is very clear in her teaching, and is approachable to ask questions. She has readily offered extensions beyond the classroom in the form of competitions, challenges, projects, etc. Highly recomend.

Dr. Gauci is an amazing science teacher and you will be very lucky if you have her. She is very knowledgeable and explains concepts very precisely. If you don't understand something, she will help you. Gauci is very organized and sets reasonable due dates for assignments. Her tests are not super easy, but if you study, you will do well. Although she can be a bit strict sometimes, she is very nice and cares a lot about her students.

Drop/Switch ASAP! Dr.Grouchi is mean, unhelpful, and unclear. She clearly favorites a select few in her class, and her lessons are very hard to understand. Moves very quickly. You will experience tons of late nights trying to teach yourself.

Dr. Gauci is God - she has a PhD in Everything. Good because she doesn't take anyone's crap, knows SO much, and really, isn't a hard marker if you know her expectations which she always lays out in detail. Also, she is extremely organized. Never forgets, never loses assignments, and is very fair. We are so lucky to have her in our school, she is raising the standard of our education.

I thought the whole high school teacher with a PhD was a temporary thing until the lab at Sunnybrook got its funding back? Unbelievable! She treats her class like a second year university genetics lecture -- LIGHTEN UP -- These are highschool kids!! Tends to treat people like garbage. Picks favorites. She should get herself back into a lab where she belongs.
