Heffernan is one of the best teachers i ever had for english. She has great stories to tell and is always a welcoming and friendly person to talk to.Even after passing her class our class still sometimes goes to her room during lunch and she would always welcome us with a friendly smile and an interesting story to tell!

Probably the best and most nicest teacher I've ever had in tenth grade. She is so nice and low tempered like it's not even funny. She'll let you leave the class to go to another classroom. We never do anything in class and we never received any worksheets. She never checks homework, just excellent!! Also a very sociable teacher, trust me she's amazing, I recommend 100%. I know who's good and not good, she's definitely awesome!! Love you ms. !! Xoxo

Such a sweet woman. Also a great teacher and a quite easy marker. Submitted some of the worst pieces of writing i've ever wrote and recieved decent, if not, above average marks. Loved that class.

Marks hard (that's a good thing), but be prepared to actually put effort into writing. You'll need to learn how to "think" in English if you want to keep up.

It's like she enjoys taking off 30% in an essay for a missplaced comma. Honestly, she needs to set realistic standards for her students. No one had an average higher than 75% in our class!

Terribly hard. Expect a mark somewhere in the 60s or low 70s. Gives no pity or mercy marks. No easy assignments to pull your mark up. She does explain and teach well though...

she is nice, but is a very hard marker. Thats what its going to take to get through IB. I highly disagre with her docking marks for a play not being filmed during midnight in a forest. Oh well, tough.

She's very nice, but she's a totally hard marker. She likes to go off on tangents as well.

She is not an easy marker, but easier than most teachers like Mr. Brandstetter. But this is English, who said it would be easy? No teacher is easy when it comes to English. But she's a very nice person indeed, always helping out in SAINTS and very helpful if you need it. I'd reccommend her.

very nice person, but her marking is unclear, unfair, and there are very few chances to pull up your mark.
