I adored Ms. Leaney in grade 9! Things kind of changed when I took her leadership class. She wasn't bad at teaching, but I felt that I was totally left out of the blue of her class. She loves the outgoing students a lot. I feel like she doesn't see the potential of her other students who tries their best in a different way. My mark went from high 80s to low 60s in two weeks.I could tell she didn't like how I barely participated in the activities But its ok she gave me the courage to be outgoing

She was great the first week, then she turned into a very mean person. She would always pick on certain students (Mostly boys, never on girls). She will always call out boys on the dumbest stuff. She assigns so many assignments, and for work she always takes out marks for no reason! I would highly reccomend you switch out of her class if you have the chance unless you are a girl! Don't put up with her and her moody self.. And if you are, stand up for yourself, don't let her do anything!

If you are a girl, take her class, as it is an easy 90%. However, if you are not, except a drop to 60%. Miss leaney always seems to give higher preference towards girls, and all her GEOGRAPHY projects have to do with cooking, or art. i DIDNT TAKE ARTS AND CRAFTS, I TOOK GEOGRAPHY.

Ms. Leaney is the best teacher you will ever have! Yes, some people don’t like her, but it’s a them thing. Honestly if you go and cooperate she will love you. She just wants to promote and help all her students. She has been my smile in the halls. She is a GREAT teacher. If you have her then you are so lucky!

Rough time, never got stuff back. Didn't know what my mark was going in to exam. Really nice person, and interactive, but as a teacher, it was rough having her.

SHE IS THE BEST TEACHER EVER!!! She understands that not everyone learns by the books and makes things fun. All you people hating on her are just the lazy people who don’t appreciate that she’s on our side!!!

At first Miss Leaney seemed like she wold be a good teacher to have. She seemed very knowledgable, fun, and genuinely kind. I started thinking that Grade 9 Geography might actually be somewhat enjoyable. Unfortunately, as the year wore on, I found out that she was blatantly rude, and developed the most OBVIOUS favourites (most of which were female). Anyone that didn't meet her agenda was mistreated. She marks on creativity, not knowledge, and is really not a nice person. Poor teacher, overall.

Amazing. Ms. Leaney opened my eyes to the issues that are really important in our world today. Not only that, but she inspired me to continue to learn more and have a positive impact. She prepares students very well. I think she is the perfect combination for a teacher : she is very nice and approachable, but she makes you work, learn and really work on building your life skills.

She was responsible for me finally connecting with the world outside of durham, although she may seem to be moody.. she really isnt, and if she favours a student its because they were the most interested in the course content and made that apparent to her. She is a teacher that actually teaches because its her passion and not just because its a career with a paycheque. Thank you ms. leaney, you did a great job teaching us.

I can't get over the public humiliation she put me through. She picks on kids, they hurt. Other than that, she assigns a lot of hard projects, but medium level tests. I like her better happy.

She had some creative teaching methods and I learned alot in her class, but she has too many mood swings and doesn't always stay on topic which can get pretty annoying.

Had a lot of intensely fast mood swings. Like one second she's happy and the next she's furious. But when she was happy she's nice.

Miss. Leaney has inspired me to go to school to do environmental geography. She is amazing and has a lot to offer a willing student. She'll make you work but its work that helps you in life.
