She knows her stuff. Can be a hard marker but she is always willing to help. She has a great sense of humour. Really helped prep me for university level.

You either love her or you hate her. She knows what she's talking about and she talks about it a lot. If you show up, do your work and show her that you're able to formulate thought and idea, you will have no problem. She is NOT a though marker if you're not winging your stuff the night before. Extremely reasonable about everything. Communication with her is key. Only downside is that she's usually really set on her universal truth/moral themes/views of literature.

She's quite a tough marker, but you leave the class feeling much more prepared for university. I don't see why people accuse her of picking favourites, I've seen many "favourite" A students get yelled at for handing things in late to her too. If you work hard and show respect, she'll be one of the best teachers you'll ever have in your life.

Is very self opinionated...her way or the highway. Accent sometimes a distraction. Picks favourite, typically the gifted as favourites and smugly thinks their intelligence was her doing. Fails to provide guidance or proper outlines. Thinks everyone should know perfect grammar without fully realizing not taught throughout previous grades. Likes to threaten..miserable marker. Under the impression she is a university professor instead of a high school teacher. List is really too long to mention.

she is funny but still teaches the things that we need to know. I really respect how she somehow has absolute control of the class without yelling or sending people to the hall.

She can be a little tough and she makes you work, but university is so easy thanks to her. She gets you to experience a lot of different literature. A sweet woman, but hand things in on time or else.

She is a really good essay marker, if you agree your right, if you don't agree your wrong. And if you want to argue, sure! But see she would say: you just wrong."

Dear Mrs. Kissoon, I think you should know that Keat's "Autumn" is about death. And that an essay on Ophelia fits into the "Appearance and Seeming" Category.

As a teacher, not entirely incompetent all the time. This is a plus. However, extremely biased.
