I had McDonnell for my English 11 and 12 Honours teacher, and she's honestly not as bad as some reviewers make her out to be (and speaking as an ethnic minority that she's reportedly racist against, that's high praise). She's a very fair marker if you can actually write and if you're willing to put in the effort. I'm Asian, and I managed to get 90% from her. It's true that she has mood swings, but they don't happen very often. It's too bad she retired...

She has such mood swings! Every time I walked into class, I had to brace myself because either she might be super angry or she might be in a good mood. She forces her opinion on you and she gets frustrated easily. She doesn't mark all that easy either.

She's not as bad as people say. Just follow her instructions and really pay attention. She's willing to help with anything that has to do with English. Not as hard a marker as Kineshanko.

VERY strict on marking (reportedly racially biased). On the other hand, her class was the most useful of all English classes I took in high school.
