She doesn't teach well, i used my past teachers teaching method for an essay, she barley passed me, well other kids wrote 3 sentences per paragraph essay they got a B, a lot of people had this problem too. Her excuse was marking the essays while having a headache... She does this a lot, will mark barly any effort work as an A, while try hard work gets C+/B. Out student teacher was so much better, taught everything well, and knew when someone did hard work

Very nice. She was pleasant but, yes, a pushover. I remember once she spelled an English word wrong on the whiteboard. When your English is better than your English teacher's, you know you're in for an easy ride. (My English has since then deteriorated so she may beat me now.) I remember her assignments being fun to do!

Nice person, but cannot control the class which makes it harder to learn, or even just get through the material. In addition, I take English to further my skill in said subject - not to deal with arts and crafts. While the entire school system suffers from this plague, English classes are often the most susceptible, and Gelbart is unfortunately one of them. That said, she does teach fairly well. To improve: more control over students

A really nice, good teacher. She marks a bit tough , but as long as you follow her guidelines , you do fine. She's really funny, understanding, tolerable to many difficult people. She's really really nice. One of the best teachers you can get.

One of the nicest people you'll ever meet. To be fair, she's not as nice as people make her out to be. "Easy-going" and "friendly" is a more definitive term. That said, she can be an inconsistent marker. For example, my project was very well done. It had artistic hand drawn pictures and detailed summaries, and a person who did a one page journal got a higher mark than me.

Great teacher, very understanding, one of those people who you look forward to seeing the next day. Someone who puts a smile on your face just because she's so understanding and always lends out a helping hand. Truly a teacher who makes a great impact on your life to become a better person. One of the best teachers I've had, and I still thank her to this day!! =) =)

A fair marker, a great person in general. Anyone who knows her knows that she's the sweetest, most caring person you'll ever meet. People take advantage of her, but once you have another teacher you'll be wishing you were in her class again. A truly awesome teacher!!!!!!!!!!
