i had Mary for book club which is 103. She is a very nice teacher but it is the hardest class i've ever taken cause she gives soooooooo much work. i've never been below average in a class in dawson and her class is the first i've been on average just to show how hard it is. she is very accomaditing though and likes when you go to her office hours to ask questions. If you want to improve and don;t care for R-Score take her.

Ten years later, I am thinking of this teacher. She's inspiring me to go back to school, study English lit, and become a CeGep teacher. She's a teacher I inspire to be! Definitely take her courses. She will change the way you see the English language.

At first, she seems strict but after the first few classes, she is not as bad as you think. The amount of work that she gives is ridiculous though. It is easy but takes a lot of time. You cannot be absent for any of the classes because there is always work that is worth marks. Also, do not be late to her class. She is a very knowledgable teacher and will definitely make your english skills improve. Take her if you are ready to work.

very sweet lady, loves dogs (trust me, it's relevant). i thought she was a bit cold at first, but she truly is kind, helpful & VERY knowledgeable in her area of expertise. The most i've learned in any english class ever. demanding of quality essays, which i think is great (you'll leave her class capable of writing a killer text). if you talk to her during office hours she softens up to you all the more. small assignments scattered about throughout the entire semester. really recommend her

I had her for summer class, she's very interesting, she keeps you motivated, she gave good books to read. but she will make you WORK. If you do your work you'll be fine, if you're last forget it. She's a phone hater too. Strict grading as well.

I don't understand why some people don't like her. Yes, you do have to work a lot but at the end you get a good grade so it's worth it. I went to her office a few times and she always answered all my questions. One thing though : DO NOT use your cell phone in class, she will ask you to leave if she catches you.

If you are in science program, not recommended. There are lots of work, class work in each class (14 class works) four students or less in each group, 10 e journals, 3 essays, 4 quizzes and oral presentation. There is no possibility for absence. If you want to apply for science program in university, you should know that universities consider science courses (Chem, phys, bio and math) and after these courses they consider English. I work hard and I like to learn English but it was try in vain.

She is the best English teacher I've had at Dawson. Although she gave a lot of readings, they were not very long and easy to understand. She is very approachable and will help you with whatever you're have difficulty with. I actually enjoyed her class so I highly recommend this teacher!

Honestly, one of the best English teachers I've ever had! I recommend her to everybody I talk to. She gave a lot of work, but it was pretty easy. And instead of a couple things worth a lot of marks, she gives a lot of little things worth barely anything. She's very nice and always making jokes. I loved her. Do your work and you'll be fine. Take her if you can!

Wow! Only teacher I ever had that actually made me learn something about the English language. Not a class to skip however, since you do a lot of in class work. However if you show up to class and do the readings, you can easily pull a 90 in the class! Highly recomended.
