Honestly the best teacher I've ever had, but a tough old broad. Like a drill Sergeant in the Foreign Legion. A class with Gibson is for people who want to learn. It doesn't take her long to figure out who is really into it and who isn't. Of all my High School courses, hers was the only one that I felt really prepared me for University. I got more out of Beowulf and Chaucer in one Semester with Gibson than I did in two semesters of English Literature at University. I owe her tons.

Can't say I enjoyed her class...at all. My marks were about 15% less than I'd ever gotten in English before, with the same amount of effort. She gives no work all year and marks irrelevantly.

She is one of the most influential teachers of my life. I had her twenty years ago, and I still think back to our conversations and the lessons she taught me. Even when going through some rough things in my life she was always very welcoming and non-judgmental. She is everything a teacher should be.

Condescending. Arrogant. Unhelpful. Apathetic. Doesn't use rubrics and doesn't give clear instructions. Glad it's almost over.

she lets you correct your work and hand it back in, that is the only redeeming quality about her. especially considering one time i corrected an assignment and went from a 79 to a 60. i almost dropped 20% for making corrections! very pretentious too!

Almost no class work, in that sense easy but the tests are unclear and she thinks she knows more than scientific proof.

She deffinately cares about your performance, and wants you to pass. She's a tough marker, especialy on grammar and essay format. Sometimes she gets irritable when you come for help, but you get it...

She's a hard teacher, but I definetly learned a ton from her and really appreciate it! If you work hard and show respect you won't have any problems. She's smart and you can learn a lot from her.
