This teacher is singularly responsible for preparing me for university level research and writing. She put crazy effort into preparing our assignments. She didn't just give you an assignment. She gave you the assignment, her marking scheme, a list of sources to check out first and even examples from the past. She may come across cold, doesn't coddle her students but she acts that way with even her best students. She prepares you for the future and there's a lot of value in that.

I'm now just finishing up my Masters this month and I still consider Ms. Gluskin to be the MOST instrumental teacher in my academic schooling. It was because of her that I actually started caring and being interested in history during high school (had her for grade 11 and 12 world history). She also honed my essay writing, prepping for university. Yes she is strict and expects students to actually put in a lot of hard work, but she cares deeply for her students and is very helpful.

She's one of the best high school teacher's I've ever had. Some people say she's hard, but she gives you specific guidelines to follow and as long as you go by them, you'll be fine. Very knowledgable and passionate about hist

Honestly, her classes are STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. I took both grade 11 and 12 world history courses with her and she really prepared me for university. If you show that you are trying, 80s and 90s are easy to get!
