Mrs. Clark is one of the most passionate teachers I've ever had. She made learning chemistry fun and she really knew what she was talking about from her many years of experience in the workforce before teaching. Her lessons and notes can be a bit confusing sometimes, but asking for help after class really helps clear up any misconceptions. She is a hard marker and expects you to be very specific, which is good preparation for university. I'm happy to have had her for grade 11 and 12 chemistry!

Certainly one of the worst teachers that I've ever encountered. She does not provide you with help and teaches at a very fast pace. It's very tough checking for clarification from her if you needed help cuz she says one thing then says another. She assumes that we are familiar with the things that she knows when we obviously do not. Although, she is well educated on Chemistry, she is not a suitable High School Chemistry teacher. How do you expect us to get into University if u continue teaching!

Mrs. Clark is a great teacher. I know that her teaching to prepare you for university can get tough but its definitely worth it. She is very knowledgable yet still a down to earth and caring teacher. Her university preparation is well needed, especially her labs. If you have her, you are very lucky and enjoy yourself but still work hard!

I could not have asked for a better teacher in all the science courses she has taught me. I'm quite surprised she is not department head. Mrs. Clark is an extremely knowledgable teacher that does an incredible job preparing her students for university. I wish all my teachers were as intelligent and hard working as her. Such a positive experience I had!

Mrs. Clark Dear, look you were a great Chemistry teacher. But please please, if you are teaching phyiscs 11, then please take up tricky practice word problems and misconceptions, and conepts before tests and quizzes. Look, when you give me suggestions I did not as a student take them for granted. I expect the same from you, dear madam. Physics can be our best subject if you stop filling our throat with lectures. Believe me, in Uni they lecture, plus they have tutorials, and and we need tohaveit

Peace be to you beloved Mrs. Clark. You were my beloved physics 11 teacher that I expected to masterafter coming with a good math 10 background. My perfectionism cost me a lot of trials. By God, by end of that sem, I got used to your lectures, and came to love Uni.level courses for learning not just for formal means to get to Uni. I should have realized that I to be in your class, I must be with a healthy heart and your pickiness was admirable. May my life even be yours since you sacrifice a lot

Ms. Clark is one of the most hardworking teachers I have ever had. This woman dedicates her life to preparing her students for university. sure, she marks her labs quite hard and the application questions on her tests are quite tricky, but it doesn't matter, since it is the world's biggest help in university, where it really counts. Her dedication to her students is admirable, and the preparation for university is indispensable.
