She not only teaches students, but also acts as a role model, and guides them in life. She does MORE than just teach. She treats her students like adults, just like how they want to be treated.

To be honest, yes she slaps herself awkwardly and yells for random things, but at the end you'll realize how easy and fun her class was.

Worst teacher I've ever had. Complete ideologue. Not open to debate or ideas that contradict her own, even if they are well reasoned. She will not engage ideas that are contrary to her own; she will dismiss them out of hand.

She keeps her cool, has a sense of humour, and is very good at explaining things. She's fairly minded, has common sense and a command of what she teaches. She also has high expectations and is detail oriented. Good teacher!

Excellent communicator, good management skills. Very good teacher overall. She's dedicated towards her work. She knows when a student is bored to death, and will liven the class up to the point where students aren't as bored.

WOW, no word can describe Ms. Levenstein. She is a great teacher who pours her heart out to teach the students. Helping them when they are struggling and encouraging them each and everyday to do their best. She is the best.

She doesn't see students as "one, big, mass of smaller/younger people". This is a teacher who warms up when looking into the face of each and every child! She understands all sorts of intelligence. BEST TEACHER EVER!!

One of the best teachers in the school. She's a teacher students repect from the heart of students. She's a great problem solver, understands student phychology, is an idol for students, and motivates everyone around her.

She photocopies the wrong side of papers... so we get blank pages. And she picks on small, personal and religious things which has nothing to do with English. She puts students down. I hope she reads this

If you are courteous, actually pay attention, and do your work then maybe you would get the marks you deserve. But she CAN judge by appearances/first impressions. Watch out hahaha

Mrs. Levenstein doesn't really tell you what you need to work on in your writing. She also seems to ignore the grade 11s in her class simply because we have another year to go.
