I LOVE HER! I never liked an English class, I was always just atvs about it.. but Meg-oh my. Most CARING and understanding person on the earth. She is so compassionate and wants all her students to do so well. She is so chill and won't force herself to keep you the whole class, if you're done- she'll let you out super early. ALSO she is so smart. SO SMART! The way she analyses things is fascinating. She comes up with amazing ideas and keeps class soooo fun. TAKE HER PLEASE.

Such an amazing teacher!!! Her personality was fantastic! She'd tell a lot of anecdotes in class and still manage to make us succeed in our course. She of course was always ready to help and when I'd have a conversation with her about my struggles in understanding some concepts she'd get to my level and understand how to pinpoint and clarify my mistakes! She's such a funny and great person I'm grateful to have had her! :)

BEST ENGLISH TEACHER EVER! She will guide you to succeed and tell you exactly what she wants. Her classes are always super fun as she is hilarious & always talks about her personal life. Expect to watch many movies & she can/will make anything appear to be a phallic symbol. She is very nice, however she swears a lot. I highly recommend her!

Tells you exactly what she wants. Detailed lectures outlines posted on Omnivox. She seems great, but she isn't impartial. I had perfect attendance and frequently participated in class. My first essay was mediocre IMO so I went to see her. Her tips were useful and I heeded her advice. She ended up giving me a grade that wasn't representative of my improvement. During a personal encounter, she basically confirmed to me that although I am "bright," she just doesn't like me (although ≠ explicitly).

She likes to share stories from her personal life, and they're funny. Her essays are very specific, so it's best to book an appointment with her before an essay is due so she can look it over (if you follow her instructions and take her advice, you will do really well). She likes to start her 8:15 classes at 8:30, and she never takes attendance; she also doesn't cancel class a lot but she dismisses the class pretty early. Overall, I would definitely recommended her! Amazing teacher.

Megan Newell Does not explain any of the assignments that she gives. She does not make it clear what she expects in the assignments and essays and therefore easily gives out low grades without sharing how to achieve a high one. She also wastes the entire class time saying personal stories about her husband and kids that have zero relevance to what we are learning. Definitely do not take her as a teacher, your grades will be low and you will have to sit through her boring stories.

Megan is, in my opinion, the best teacher you'll find at Marianopolis. She's a great teacher (and she's been teaching for over 20 years!), she's funny and engaging, but beyond all of that, she's an incredibly kind person. She has very specific essay expectations, which she'll explain and help you reach if you go to her office hours before handing something in. Her class was always the highlight of my week and having her will really enhance your CEGEP experience.

Megan is totally unreal, you HAVE to take her. All the haters who say she's hard either a) didn't follow her instructions, or b) didn't put much effort into the course. If you do both, I really don't see how you can't succeed. The guidelines are very clear, and she's INCREDIBLY helpful during her office hours, taking the time to edit your essay and give you suggestions. She's an absolute riot in class and an amazing person to talk to. The closest you'll get to having your mom as your teacher :)

Megan is an AMAZING english teacher.
She is super funny and loves to talk about her personal life.
She's always sharing funny stories & makes the class enjoyable.
The thing is though, she is very particular and wants work done her way.
She can be a hard grader, so if you want to do well you MUST go see her during office hours.
She is very helpful & you will do much better if you go see her!
I learned more from her in one semester than I did throughout high school english.

She is honestly one of my favourite profs at Marianopolis! I love how she tells us stories about her family to get us to de-stress a bit and she is such a caring person. She's super clear on what she wants, so follow what she says and you will get amazing grades with her. I also like the fact that we analyze pieces of literature that are more current, like Harry Potter and the Hunger Games. I would definitely take her again!

Such a great teacher who exposes you to the value of literature. She occasionally cancels classes so you can work on your essay, meet with her or prepare for the exam. Those that complain about the cancelling of classes clearly do not see that she is offering a service to students for their benefit. I loved English class and her approach to teaching!

I lucked out and had her for intro to college English. She's extremely nice, funny, and her class is very laid back. She has the class start late if it's a morning class, and lets you go when the work for that class is done. She still expects you to work, though. Do the readings (like one short story every couple weeks, which is almost nothing) and take your time with your essays. You usually have a week or two for essays, anyways.

I found Ms. Newell very demanding. requires a lot of over-analyzing which might be hard to get used. Although I'm not a great fan of over-analyzation, i have to say that it does teach you critical thinking and all. She deeply values original literary works which is a good thing (but also a time-consuming thing!)

She LOVES original ****, and as long as you follow her essay structure, easy to get good marks. Talks about her kids a lot, doesn't mind laptops. Makes class interesting, we watched family guy and edward scissorhands in her class, read a lot of Poe short stories. Definitely take her you will not regret it!
