Former student here. It's thanks to Mrs. MacDonald that I ended up specializing in English. She's extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her subject - it was in her class that I first realized the importance of Shakespeare's Hamlet. She is one of those teachers that you're terrified of, but can't help but respect!

I, quite frankly, find her a perfectionist b*****. She is impatient and expects students to perform to what she believes is perfection without properly instilling it into her students what HER perception of perfection is. Moreover she is your typical Canadian English teacher who fails to have a substantial vocabulary or, in conjunction to the fact that she is a perfectionist b***** who only believes in her own warped ideologies, an open mind. Could explain why conventional teens like her.

Hands down the best English teacher you will ever have. She actually managed to make Shakespeare understandable and a fun experience. Really hope I have her as my teacher again.

She was a good teacher and a genuinely nice person (the same can't be said about a lot of other teachers in that department). She helped me through some rough times!

I loved her so much! Best teacher in the English department by far! You need to work for your marks, but you learn so much in her class, and become a better English student! Super clear and concise, funny and kept class interesting and enjoyable! Wish I had her again!

All the people saying she's bad don't know what they're talking about. She is a good, logical english teacher and the first one I've had who makes english 1) make sense and 2) enjoyable. I'll agree that the marks she gives are fairly low, but there are plenty of assignments/tests/ "quests" throughout the semester, so if you get a bad final grade, it wasn't because you only messed up once. Very reasonable if you have a question/concern/complaint. Best english teacher I had in my 4 years.
