I won't lie, I was not a fan of Madame when she was my teacher. After I ended her class and had conversations with her in the library this year, I realized that she's a wonderful person. She has a great sense of humour and always there to help wether it be french-related or any other kind of problem. Looking back, her class was intense, but she taught me more French than any other teacher at Harbord. Her ratings before may say otherwise, but Madame is pretty awesome.
You'll hate her if you stop taking French, but appreciate her when you get a new teacher. When I had her, I hated her. Now I've realized what an amazing teacher she was, and miss her deeply. She's tough and her work takes effort and time but they're not for s & g's. Presentations and short essays are tedious but you learn so much from them. When you end the year, you'll realize that she treats you like an adult and doesn't baby you. She'll always help and make accommodations but you have to ask
She's a sweetie on the inside and a hard shell on the outside and there is absolutely nothing bad about it! Don't get her mad though, don't be sassy. Don't sleep in class she hates that. Ask her questions and she will give you a wicked advantage grade-wise.
I was incorrigible but in the end I had to admire her effort in being a tough woman.
Expectations are out of this world.... Extremely picky with tests and assignments and will dock marks for the stupidest reasons. Gives re-tests and is accomodating to marks. She'll let you redo assignments if needed, but it's usually done after school. she should remember that were not all francophones, and can't all miraculously learn all the information she packs into one class. Each class is either a new lesson, or something important. Skip her class and you'll be lost
Madame Anthony is one of my favourite teachers. She's funny, and tries to make her class as fun as possible. On the other hand, she's the toughest marker I've ever had, but she tries to help you as much as she can with marks. Her "spontaneous conversations" are the hardest and most awkward things. She always helps with work, and is very understanding. Always look going to French.
i dropped out of french cause i didnt learn anything from her in grade 9 so i wasnt prepared for grade 10 fench and she was super mean and publicly humiliated anyone who made a mistake 8==D
Not my best teacher, but not my worst. Has a great sense of humor but isn't always very helpful. She does go over a lot of material in class. A lot of oral presentations.
Super tough teacher.... will dock marks for everything and has this funky superiority complex and thinks shes the smartest person ever... dont argue with her opinions because apparently they are 'undisputed'.
she is very annoying! she believes that no one can possibly speak french better than her.
I don't know what half of you guys r saying. I just graduated harbord and i had her in grade eleven, and she was an awesome teacher. She's obviously not perfect, and has her moments when she'll snap on you if you do something dumb, but for her to get angry at you, you actually have to do something dumb and out of place. As long as you pay attention and listen in class, she'll be one of the best teachers you've ever had.
SUCH a hard marker, and I could understand that if she was a good teacher, but she isnt
ummmm...ye this teacher is so inconsistant and her marking is off the wall :S
she is hard and tends to have favourite students in her class
