Shes amazing!! So nice and easy going. One of the best teachers iv ever had!!
Enjoyed every minute of her class. If you have the opportunity, TAKE HER CLASS! Not only will you ACTUALLY learn something, but it will be beneficial to you in the end
Ms Shanks is honestly one of the most caring, compassionate and kind people I've ever met in my life. She is willing to help you with anything whether it's music related or not. She's very knowledgable about music and so sweet. She made my experience at Saunders 100 times better. She really tries to get to know her students and is the most real teacher, doesn't act different around students.
Ms. Shanks is the best teacher at Saunders, hands down. Everyone in the class sees her more as a friend, not just a teacher. This was the only class I ever looked forward to attending.
Ms. Shanks is probably the definition of an amazing teacher. She puts more work into her job by far than any other teacher. She is a kind, caring and companionate teacher. She's a person you can relate to and really get along with. She is very real; you can tell that she does not put on an act when she teaches, she is the same person in and out of school. Music with Ms. Shanks doesn't seem like a class, its something you look forward to when you go to school. P.S. She likes cookies. T&L
Fantastic teacher and mentor. Had her years ago, from 2000-2003, and to this day I consider her one of the best teacher's I've had.
She's the best, every day we had snack time, and we had yoga fridays or movie fridays almost every week!
very easy marker if you dont get a 90 your either high and dont play all class or just skipped i dont know how you cant like her either
Gosh i love her :) totally understands you, knows what shes talking about and she really knows what shes doing! Great person to talk to, always a great listener :)<3
Ms.Shanks genuinely tries her very best to allow you to succeed. She is such a caring, understanding and beautiful person, inside and out! She goes above and beyond a teacher's duty in every way!
MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE TEACHER!!! started playing violin in grade 10 as a beginner, and she helped me through it so well!!! MOST UNDERSTANDING, so chill, easy marker!! (97% yesss!) so kind&considerate!
If you want to develop into a virtuoso instrumentalist, she'll help you as much as she can. If you want to come to class with little aspirations other than high grades, she can help you do that too.
very very nice person, lovely teacher who cares about the students
Best music teacher I've ever had, easily. Very nice, friendly, kind to students, always makes an effort to get to know them better. Always talks to me in the halls whenever I pass her. :)
i love ms shanks, shes nice, understanding and an easy marker
I went to Saunders with Julie Shanks around or before 1980. Played in the orchestra with her and I thought she was great.
Ms. Shanks is wonderful. She is cheerful and fun and she always wants her students to do well. She was my favourite Saunders Teacher!
