She was a great teacher for me. A really nice teacher who taught at Jarvis for probably almost 30 years. She will be missed as she retired earlier this year.

Finlay is a difficult teacher to describe. She's nice, usually (not always) reasonable and patient in explaining things- unless she's in one of her moods. You can learn a lot from her though she can be to rigid and boring sometimes. Also she can be unfair sometimes in that she favours some students and jump on others. Just try and hold your nose with her sometimes.

she has the habit of picking favourites and treating them better than the other students. being judgemental is not a quality a teacher should have
