She does not teach, she sits there and tells stories about her life.

Easily my favourite teacher. She really takes the time to make sure you succeed and feel wanted and happy. She often relates the stuff she teaches with real life situations so its easier for us to understand. Shes extremely approachable and really nice and always listens to whatever you have to say.

Mrs Short-Schultz is one of my favourite teachers and by far the kindest. She makes it clear that you can talk to her in and out of class about anything you need to. She talks about her children and shares funny stories to make the class feel comfortable. She's a very bright and sweet soul and always acknowledges you in the hall when you say hi. I will definitely remember her throughout my high school years.

A beautiful soul, not only was she one of my favourite teachers but also created a friendship bond with many students, including me. Be interested in what you're learning/put the effort into the work you do and she will definitely respect you right back. Incredibly knowledgable in the field of geography/geology and definitely was always there for me whenever I had any questions or concerns. A wonderful person, would definitely recommend taking travel and tourism if you have the option. :-)

Ms. Short is very sweet. Shes a good teacher and she knows what shes talking about. She isn't very strict- I would miss her class 2-3 times a week and she didn't bother me about it because I was still a top student. She tends to assign a lot of work at the same time and her tests include a lot of stuff that personally I found to be irrelevant though- so those were hard. For less major things she is an easy easy marker but for the summative she was tough. Even if you're rude she'll be nice.

Ms Short is the best. She explains things very well and prepares you for her tests and the exam. Her geo class was definitely my favourite of the year.

Nice stories, funny/corny jokes, doesn't like chit chatting during class but what teacher does? I sincerely hope I have her again!

She is really helpful and takes time to explain things in interesting ways. She also tries to inspire us as a homeroom. Thanks Mrs. Short

She marks harshly and is extremely judgemental. She's the kind of teacher that picks on you in class constantly when you dont have your hand up and therefore don't know the answer. I think she needs to care more about her students.
