Had her in grade 9, and I hated her, she taught us nothing, the biggest project we did involved a brochure about going to the moon (mostly colouring). She seemed to know a lot but didn't actually teach any of it in class; she also had very strong opinions about many things (don't mention disney to her) and talks WAY to much about her personal life. Also hours of answering questions from the english textbook, so easy class, but very boring.

Like no structure or concrete learning for lit, but conferencing with her is soo helpful and she really helps you to do your best work. No deadlines. She truly cares, which makes all the difference in the world. Will help with

Mrs. Barkley was an amazing teacher. After being in a class with her you learn to be an open minded individual. Don't argue with her in class because you'll lose almost every time. She is honestly one of the very few teachers who actually cares about her students.

she's an amazing, confident teacher. her confidence really works in her favour because it makes her seem so cool, and most students really want to impress cool teachers. especially english teachers. i noticed i worked really hard in her course because i wanted her to like me. more teachers should be like her.

Ms. Barkley was a great influence, a passionate teacher, and showed students a great deal of respect. She WAS working on her... Masters/PhD? Marge, why are you still at Ottawa high schools?!

She's a great teacher to have for Grade 9 - she really eases you into the Lit program. Inspirational, funny, and very caring. When you leave her class, though - some of that changes.

An amazing teacher who really sticks up for her students, but when you leave her class watch out! You become...the 'other kids' and you are no longer under her protective arm!
