This is a woman who thinks she's a good teacher, yet she isn't. She tries to be funny, yet she is cruel to both the kids and their parents. I overheard a parent get yelled at by her. Glad she retired!

Thing is she threatens to the class that if you don't do this, she'll automatically give u a zero but everytime she gives people alot of second chances. so deep deep deep down, she's a kind teacher.

If you are in french immersion she automatically hates you. She is not a nice person nor a good teacher. I must admit, I was not in her best of books even so, she was horrible to the entire class.

One can only complain if you get on her bad side which can happen often if not careful. But she is really learned and teaches quite a lot, and is very respectable.

I do not approve of her teaching methods. She gives no encouragement to students wo need help and she is always insulting us. I would recommend dopping her class.

She is an unreal teacher! Pretty mean but teaches you so much I am so prepared for grade 10 it is unbelieveable. She is a bit intimidating with her shots at students and her accent isweak but she is great! I'm glad I had her

She's alright, I guess. She's always assigning these useless plays and such. At the beginning of the year, tells u to ask her anything but you soon learn that she yells at you if u ask a question.
