She's a very smart woman and she knows her course material very well. That being said, she's not approachable, she's unclear at times and she is not involved in the lives of her students generally speaking. But hey, she's there to prepare you for post-secondary and not to be your friend; she excels in both areas.

Mrs. Little is very knowledgeable about her course, but I find that she is not clear enough with assignments and gives far too much homework.

She is a very strict teacher, but knows a lot and is definitely one of those teachers that really gives you a challenge no matter what grade you're in. She gives way to much homework to handle and isn't easy. She should do better on clarity and being helpful.

Good teacher overall... I really admire that she is so passionate about her work, but she does give way too much homework! If you're hoping for your ENG4U mark to boost your admissions average, don't

she's a really committed teacher, her English class prepares you for university. She's not an easy teacher but if you try hard she's recognize that.

She's a really committed teacher. I admire that. I've had too many teachers who really didn't seem to care that much about their job.

The best teacher I had in high school. She is a hard marker, but if you do your work and ask her questions when you're unclear you'll do well and learn a lot. Best prep I received for uni @ Westdale.

Mrs. Little receives negative ratings because she does her job properly. She teaches University level English and is required to mark hard in order to prepare students for Uni.
