She is a knowledgeable teacher, she marks essays and other assignments well. She gives high marks as long as you are nice to her.

I had Dr.Fernandes for Grade 10 and Grade 11 (I am now in Grade 12). Honestly, she's a nice and understanding teacher. A little compelling with all the contests, but just do your best and be an attentive listener. You'll be fine. People can really exaggerate. Dr.Fernandes is a GOOD, DECENT teacher! You just need to get used to her. Also, she gives fair marks.

Make sure she likes you ... she didn't like me and I almost failed. If she likes you doesn't matter what you five her she'll give you a ninety. She doesn't read the essays you write she just glances. So make sure your essays look good and you start of well and finish well. Most of the year was done doing grammar.

She's an okay teacher, doesn't teach much but she marks by favourites so if she likes you you're gonnna get an automatic 90% at least

Impossible to understand (just talking about speech first). There's clearly an Indian (or other South asian accent) but she somehow incorporates an old, old style accent from the 40's commonly seen from Hollywood. She's anything but the actors and actresses (ex: Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn) she seems to idolize. It's unfortunate that she is not only stubbornly prejudiced, but has an attitude unsuitable for teaching. Her constant boasting of her degrees and insults directed at staff

I love her. All you have to do is be nice and do all your work and hand it in on time. She's sometimes a little unclear with instructions/deadlines, but that's because she wants to do so much in a year. She may not be the best english teacher ever, I've had better, but if you learn to understand her, you'll do well. I'm sad she doesn't teach gr 12. If you're confused, just ask her again and she'll try her best to explain a due date/assignment. She's a nice person :)

She isn't a very good teacher, I'll admit; but I'll have to go against the people who think that she's terrible. If you can just manage to say hi and be polite, you will certainly get excellent grades. To top if off, she can't tell the difference between a good essay and a bad one, so that means ALL you have to do is be polite. If you cannot even do this, you are either stupid or lazy. How can you expect to survive in a world full of change if you can't even make such simple adjustments?

I adore the doctor. If you get on her good side JUST BE NICE and hand in everything on time, she'll like you. She marks easy as long as you don't annoy her. I'm getting high 90s right now and I'm sad she doesn't teach gr 12. The only thing is that she isn't clear with her instructions sometimes, but if you ask her again, she'll explain. I love her.

Absolutely horrible. She harldy makes sense, makes fun of you, yells at you for something you did not do, horrible memory, and loses our work and tells us to reprint it(and if you didn't, rewrite it >->)

the worst teacher i have ever had in my high school career. if you're not on her good side (even if you're not on the bad side) she will not like you and it WILL affect your marks. "teachers pets" if you will were the ones with 90+ in the class for doing absolutely nothing. these pets would also be the ones that would mark all the tests and quizzes... giving themselves 100% with a clueless "Dr" sitting right next to them. i wonder how bad her professor must have been to award her a phd. avoid at all costs.

Just stay on her good side, you can get 9 on almost anything. Obviously, I AM happy that I got her for Grade 10, as I don't want her to give my university marks, but she also does alot of prep for literacy test.

my dear boy if you cannot see talent then you are having a hrd time seeing quality instead of whining and makinf unkind remarks try to take critism on your essays as something you have to learn from criticism is the best form of improvement.

Just b good and listen in class.Once this girl in my class got 40% from her work in class and Dr said out loud how did you end up getting a 40? and then she bumped it up to 60% for her cuz she goes to class! She gets people from class to help her go photocopy, enter marks in the computer and she goes with you, so she leaves the class for almost the whole class. Once she made me get the garbage can for her???
