She is extremely boring and there is absolutely no diversity in her lessons. She picks favourites, doesn't really know what she's talking about, and ALWAYS sounds angry. We always work out of the textbook and have only done one project in the entire year. Sometimes she acts nice. I don't feel like I'm learning anything. I suppose if you want an easy class she's good, but I actually want to learn something.
Let me tell you a story about Gjos. She hated me, simply because I disagreed with her opinions & political stance...later that semester, I won a Canada-wide socials contest and was five hours away from losing my place because she didn't tell me. I had to find out through the most complicated of means. She'll teach you what you need to know, sure, but that doesn't mean she cares for your well-being.
I'll refrain from using profanity in this paragraph. I'll be one hundred percent honest. At first glance, I found her enjoyable, friendly and helpful. I've had her for a while now, but now I'm seeing her true colors. I find Ms Gjos ABSOLUTELY biased. I don't know what she thinks of me, but she acts completely different around another students. I really.. REALLY. FIND. THIS. UNFAIR. It almost feels like she's abusing her powers as a teacher to discipline someone...
One of the best teachers I have ever had.
No knowledge of curriculum, she's your teacher if you like to do a never ending stream of packets which she does not understand.
Please if you're reading this Mrs.Gjos Take into account us students have multiple other courses we attend and have other homework we must do. I'm having problems with sleeping and staying awake for my courses because you assign too much homework! This is highly stressful for your terms test try lessening these to a bare minimum of 15 or 20 multiple choice questiions! I really like you as my socials teacher its just that while im enjoying your class im also sleep deprived and can use less stress
Mrs.Gjos is the best Socials 11 teacher by far I've had so far during this semester! She takes everything into account and makes everything about socials very fun and interactive. She has the best teaching method. Although she could be more subtle with giving less homework and take into account we have other courses that are tough on us, giving multiple workloads of homework. But i'd have to say that i couldn't be more pleased to be in her class this year! And i also rec. shortening terms tests!
she knows what she is talking about but could give less homework and try to understand that we have other classes with other homework.
Ms Gjos is one of the best Social Studies teachers ever; however, that doesn't mean she's the most fun. Her class is the most routine class I've ever been in, because everyday is working through two exercises in your work packages unless it is a test day. This means you can work at your pace, which I personally enjoyed because I could get ahead on days I felt like working, or slack off occasionally. She prepares you very well for Socials 11 Provincial Exam. Be nice and she will love you.
Gjos is a really good socials teacher. She talks alot about trudeau lol but over all I think she i better than mr. Dirome who also thought socials.
She's very articulate and gives homework everyday to ensure the learnings of Social Studies. She teaches well and answers any questions almost all correct about socials. Ms. Gjos shows interest in socials and the information obtained by her students. The notes are fairly long and boring but they help out for final exams. Overall I'd say she's a very intelligent person and succeeds in teaching her class.
Ms. Gjos makes you practice your essays and long answers so that it's not a total surprise on tests. I think that I will be a lot better prepared for my exams than I was last year
She is not a very astute teacher and does not help students who need explanations of the topics covered.
one class she was easy the other she was hard.The one class she gave us 10 pages of homework every day stupid history i got a good mark anyways thatl show u homework doesnt count!
If your a slaker dont be in her class. She is an awsome teacher and really knows how to help bring out your writing style and helps you to improve.
she teaches you the stuff, but i did more essays in her class in one year, then in all my english classes since grade 8
