I loved ms marum, she was extremely nice and she cared a lot about her students. Its sad to see her retire, but it is nice to see that she will get to have some time off after having to deal with so many highschoolers for years! Hope she enjoys her retirement. Having get for grade 9 was a awesome experience

Ms.Marum is arguably one of the nicest teachers I have ever had. Ever since grade 9 she's been sooo nice and has a great sense of humour. Terrific human being and such an easy going teacher. Although she's easy going, she also has a very wide range of knowledge about many topics and gives great life advice as well. Ms.Marum is the best. I love her

A teacher that thinks she knows everything. I in her class lost marks for no reason at all on many things with only the explanation you didn't earn them but no explanation to why not of course. oh and did i mention she thinks she is all knowing... you try to correct or have an opposing view and you are done for the semester.

Mmph. She yells a lot and is eccentric. Oh, and just a smidge violent. Pretend to be doing something at the beginning of the class or be completely lambasted.

She is by far one of the most disrepectful and ignorant teachers I have had. Never take World Issues if you are aware she is your teacher because the daily discussion will only be the ENVIRONMENT! ew

Depends on the class with her. But you should gear up for doing absolutely nothing. If there is any environmental connection she'll just keep talking about it and you won't have to do anything.

She called me the most lazy, anti-social, negative, boring, student that she has ever taught in her 17 years of teaching. My response... at least I have the record.

Very obsessive about things, such as posture and students not being allowed to look away from her while she's talking. Assigns a lot of unnecessary homework. Very intimidating and plays favourites.
