She didn't teach me English. Instead, I had her for a dance course. Although some technical terms may be used differently, the body doesn't lie. Her dancing is very awkward and techique is out of place. Definitely not qualified to teach this course. Also, her marking is completely unjustified. I had taken 2 previous dance courses at that school with nearly perfect marks. Now with Mackay I have to beg her to get similar marks I had achieved the previous years.

yeah you get easy marks in her class but that's all. She's a master of disorganization, has no idea what she's doing, wastes time every class talking about unrelated topics, and is always behind schedule. And yes the only reason you might find her class enjoyable is because you get to waste time and not learn a thing.

MS. Mackay is a very descent teacher. She's sometimes off in her own little world, but the thing that really annoys most students is that she is very inconsistent when it comes to marks and marking assignments so be careful!

Ms Mackay is...let's just say I feel like a lot of the times she's off in her world and we're here in ours. Once our homework was to find a bag of chips and read the ingredients. But anyway, she's actually a good teacher. She knows tons about English. Once I asked her to edit my article and wow, did she do an amazing job. She found all the things that could be improved and gave excellent suggestions and my article was amazing at the end. And, she's incredibly easy. I got a 96 in Gr 11. Nuff said

Ms. Mackay is a really fun teacher. She teaches you but at the same time you get lame jokes, funny stories, and sometimes off-topic discussions. :$ I for one actually learned things from her. She is a very nice person, but she's kinda quirky...but I like that! I don't like uptight teachers, and she is definetely not uptight. However if you overwhelm her with students talking and not doing their work constantly, she will snap. Just do your work, and you're guaranteed at least an 80. :D

She's easygoing to everyone who pays attention, yet she missed a lot of class for a number of excuses, and the steps of her course were always delayed just for some useless discussion. I did get confidence in my writing skill

She likes to be away and keeps on forgetting things. Her marking is unreasonable which all depend on her daily emotions. If she doesn't feel good on a day, then too bad...

She's a nice teacher, gives pretty okay marks as long as the look like what you're supposed to do, but WHAT A WASTE OF TIME in her class! I learnt so much less than other classes. And oh- lots of extensions b/c she forgets.
