Had her in grade 9 and learned a lot. Plus, she's a fair marker.

Nice person, but i agree with the others i hardly understand what we're doing in class because all we do is take up homework and assign more for the next day. I end up teaching myself everything. bad.

miss you never seem to know what you gave for homework and when, and you are a mediocre teacher, but you are a very nice person.

Can't teach. Hardly ever knows what she is doing and need confirmation from a book or something for the right answer.

She's a nice person. I don't necessarily agree with her teaching style, though, and she seems to pick favourites. She would be better if she wrote notes, and spent longer teaching her class a lesson. It's hard to learn a concept just by doing work in the "cahier".

I come out of grade 9 with a 75 and this year I'm barely passing with a 62. She's a nice lady, she just can't teach. She's not clear with her lessons and is more caught up in her own life.

Nice teacher who gives out easy marks, but sometimes you have to go home and review material to understand it. If you don't care about your education, she won't force you.

She's nice...although I wish she would actually TEACH sometimes. Also, she can be very emotional. One minute she's smiling...the other she's screaming. Scary...

She's a nice person and all but a little bit of a push over. She doesn't stay on topic and you don't learn too much.

very nice person and she seems to care about her students but honestly she didn't know my name till two months into the course when she actually read my name for what i think was the first time. and for all you people who have her for the first time, watch out, she's scary when she's angry

We haven't done any actual French so far this year. Nice person, and I like that she is into teaching us about French culture instead of just grammar, but she needs to prepare us for University French.

The dumbest person I've ever met.It was embarrassing to watch her stand up and attempt to speak french, and more embarrassing when her students corrected her. Go back to school!!!

Good teacher. Knows what she's doing (or what she has/is going to assign us), but sometimes has a problem with when. "You mean I didn't assign that yet?!"
