Mrs. Dick likes to play favourites in the class. She's very knowledgeable, but is cold to students whenever you ask her a question. The tone of her reply implies that the answer was obvious or that it was something that you should've already known. The most important things that you need to do are : make sure that your bibliography and citations are formatted correctly. Otherwise you are at risk of failing an entire essay because of plagiarism.

MS DICK, YOU ARE SENT FROM THE HEAVENS. You are a wonderful human being and teacher and we all are so blessed to have been in your class. Every hater on this website is ignorant and dumb. One of the most inspirational teachers I've ever had.

She can't teach without her own biases getting in the way, her class was very boring and she has ridiculous mood swings. She is crazy about citations and knows nothing about proper writing, her degree was in history not English. She takes compulsory courses way too seriously.

Incredibly intimidating but overall a good teacher. She's passionate and knowledgable about her content but is also quite biased which comes through in her lessons. If you get one thing out of her history class it's definitely mastering essay writing, she's awesome with that!

I really do hope I pass this class with an eighty average. How can a woman be so knowledgeable but also so frightening. I should have switched out when I could.

Although she is knowledgeable, She suffers from an almost Schizophrenic degree of emotional change. One minute she's happy and saccharine, the next she's this cold callous abusive Machiavellian monster. She seems to constantly exhibit a degree of negativity when students question her philosophies and beliefs. This coupled with her strange and often hypocritical rules makes her a difficult teacher. However if you suffer through it, you do learn a lot.

Although I am certain that Ms. Dick is knowledgeable and educated, she is extremely opinionated, and quite conservative when it comes to human rights and political issues. She seems to assume that she is inherently right about everything, and will refuse to participate in any debate which she appears in danger of losing. I have not had her as a teacher, but I can attest to the fact that she is incredibly dismissive of all proposals or ideas which do not coincide with her ideological framework.

BEST history teacher I've ever had. Knew everything about everything and was so keen to share it. A hard marker but that came in handy when writing Univeristy term papers. Excellent excellent teacher!

Okay, she is really mean. She is not clear, and when she tries to help you, it doesn't help, she'll still fail you if she doesn't like you. She picks favourites, and if your not 1 of them ur screwed
