So sad she's retiring, she was an amazing teacher. The people who wrote bad reviews were probably misbehaving as she's extremely kind and gives a chance to everyone but if you chose to slack off she doesn't tolerate it (like a teacher should be). Taught so clearly, knows what she's doing. I'm not the smartest person but I understand math so well thanks to her. I maintained 90s throughout the whole course. Ms Cruickshank will be missed.

Honestly the best teacher you will probably ever have. She teaches everything so well and makes math very easy. Quite strict, especially about phones. Join reach to get on her good side :)

She's very intelligent and a great teacher but I can understand why people wouldn't like her if they don't enjoy math. But a great teacher

I was getting very average marks in Grade 12 Advanced Functions and Calculus, until I started coming to her for help. She helped me raise my mark over 15%, helping me achieve a 97% on my final exam. She is an excellent teacher and patient when it comes to going over topics. Ms Cruickshank always shows the proof of each formula, helping students understand HOW they're getting their answers instead of just making us memorize it. She's amazing!!

SHE IS AMAZING, went from 42% to 97%. you will be so lucky to get her ! always spoils us with the extra help, really knows what she is doing, very very organized and a strong lady with confidence, she will seem very strict/tough but it is only because she cares about your education.

Cruickshank was amazing, probably the best math teacher at OT. If you listen in class and do the worksheets/textbook work, you'll do great. She gives very clear lessons, and even though she still uses an overhead, her notes help a lot. She gives you plenty of time after the lesson to do the work assigned that day so you shouldn't have homework if you listen and understand the lesson. She also cares for her students a lot, she'll do whatever it takes for you to do well. Thanks Cruickshank!

She is very straight forward and this is her best quality. If you are failing she will tell you and give you a chance to succeed. She sometimes seems like she is clueless, but she sees all. Best math teacher I've had in a long time. BTW- she uses the word complacent wayyy too much

Out right bad...has she ever heard of technology? She needs to lose the overhead but that would mean she has to turn the lights on and look at us! I have never seen a more nervous person, it is like she is scared of her students.
