I loved Ms.V! Super animated, however I did end up sleeping in her class a couple of times. Good luck!

Mostly interesting, but there'll be days/weeks where she'll just rant and rant and rant...mostly non-sensical off-topic stuff. Her marking is thorough, but the mark you get will depend on her mood when she marked it. Has class favourites.

Amazing teacher! Love her class. You get to have a lot of discussions, and maybe it's just me because i love history, but she makes everything super interesting. Workload not too hard, but not super easy either. Oftentimes discussions go all over the place which makes it even better.

Makes Socials (Which i hate so much, so boring) fun, She really is a great teacher, she can go off topic and talk about something else (usually her rants) for 20-30min and can make you understand socials really well. She rarely assigns homework (usually we take 2-3 pages of notes) but when she does,
