I found her to be to be a wonderful teacher. For Gr: 9 applied English she basically just read to us, and allowed us to do our homework in class. However Gr: 12 academic 'Writers Craft' was very challenging. I dropped the course after only a few weeks, and regretted that decision when in university. Stick with that course. If you can master writing in high school, you will find university much easier. Either way, a very clear, understanding, and caring teacher.

When I had her in grade 10, I hated her because she was disorganized and unclear, but by grade 12 writer's craft, I had gotten used to her way of teaching and LOVED her! She really cares.

I had Mrs. Bourdon-King as my English teacher in 1992 and I still think of her and how much she impacted me in high school. Sure, she's tough, but pay attention to her and you'll learn something.

All teachers say that they give you exactly as much respect as you give them. It's actually true with her. Seriously. Treat her with respect. You'll thank yourself later.

Mrs. B-K was one of the most influential teachers I had at Malvern. Although she tends to get a bit worked up, she is an incredible educator and I have a lot of respect for her.
