Had her a few times, good teacher but very intense. If you're going to survive in her class you need to have a thick skin and learn to take a lot of what she says with a grain of salt. Overall though, classes were usually enjoyable and every day she would roast people and talk about her personal life

She's a pretty good drama teacher. Gives good feedback, evidently is passionate about drama.
Talks a lot about her sons, sister, relatives, etc.

One of my favourite teachers ever. She is very knowledgeable and funny and she's really open with her students and talks a lot about her personal life but not in a distracting way. It makes students comfortable enough to share. Williamson and Mackay are the best drama teachers at RHHS. To succeed in her class just don't be rude and do your work to the best of your abilities.

Trust me, she is so wise and knowledgeable about EVERYTHING. get to know her, but don't suck up, have fun with her jokes and don't take them personally. She has so much fun teaching it's incredible and her insight is helpful with whatever you talk about (it could be anything) Always ask for clarification on deadlines and extensions if you need it, if you put actual work and effort in your reflections/work she will notice and give what is deserved. Be crazy, she likes underdogs, take risks

Amazing woman. Knows exactly what she's doing. I've never met anyone so understand and capable. She's just one of those people who was meant to be a teacher. She's absolutely hilarious and you can learn so much from her stories. Work hard and she'll give you the mark you deserve.

She's actually a cool teacher, I learned a lot about Drama from her. She just really dislikes shy kids and kids with too big egos. If you remain genuine, you should have zero problems with her. :)

I second her being "the best English teacher at RHHS". She makes Shakespheare enjoyable, and poetry fun. Tough marker though, but she gives you what you deserve
