Ms. Burns is an extremely nice teacher. I really enjoyed being in her class. Her enthusiasm made the class so interesting and I loved learning from her. The semester was really difficult however and she isn't an easy marker but she really is a great teacher that seems to enjoy teaching and is really passionate.

Everyone i know says they hated her. But i loved her. Super funny, has an amazing personality and I actually love listening her talk and get in depth about the text. Before Burns, I couldn't get past an 83 in english. I was stuck and I sucked even though I really loved writing. In her class, I improved immensely. I talked to her after class almost everyday and she told me what I needed to work on. She is one of the only teacher who actually opened my eyes about a subject. 90% never forget

She is one tough marker. She also uses a lot of dry sarcasm. But if you are on good terms with her she is a really nice to talk to.

Well, if you enjoy sarcasm then I suppose you would like her... it's ok now and then, but it gets old really fast. Nice person and everything, but as a teacher I found her the epitome of mediocre.

let me break it down for you - burns knows her stuff and kind of expects her gr 12 students to actually read a book and think a little. she is a fair marker and forces her students to make the grade. thanks ms. b.

she's a very good english teacher in the sense that you can actually tell that she graduated from university but otherwise seems not to enjoy her job very much.

She's one of the few teachers who knows what they're doing. She's funny and an overall great teacher. Although, she can sometimes talk a little too much, but at least time goes by quickly.
