She is very passionte about what she teaches, however she didn't show up to class on time if she showed up at all. I wouldn't mind having her again.

By far the best teacher ever!! She is extremely kind and evidently since she is a passionate teacher- you will learn extremely well. I am now in university and she has left such a huge impact on me and truly inspired me. She is extremely knowledgeable and very thorough with her lectures, she teaches in a way that equips you as a student with more than enough knowledge to pass your exam with flying colours.

Ms. Thornton is probably my favourite teacher I have every had. I had her for law in grade 11 and have her now for grade 12 law and she is such an amazing teacher. She is very passionate and knowledgeable and you can always have a good conversation with her. She is fairly clear on her assignments, but will always clarify if you ask. Her marking is fair, and she is easy to talk to if you have questions. I love coming to her classes everyday. Take law people :)

She is tough. No denying it. She expects you to come to class to learn and get the job done when asked to. She teaches the grade 12 Law course, and she demands a certain level of excellence. If your pissed off about it then I guess you shouldn't have taken University level Law. Runs an awesome Mock Trial team that has won the championship in the past.

One of the worst teacher's I've had. She discriminates against certain kids, she's very tough on her students, and she's unnecessarily rude. Sure she's knowledgeable about what she teaches but that doesn't make her a good teacher. I did well in her class, but I never wanted to go.

She knows nothing on the Grade 10 History. Won't stop reminding students about due dates. Goes on about how "This is an Academic class, you can't be acting like a applied students. This isn't applied History." Doesn't fully explain anything. Expects "academic" students to write a thousand word essay, with ten paragraphs, which isn't academically possible considering a ten paragraph essay is around 5000 words. it's like she urges students to learn like applied students.

She's extremely intelligent with a passion for teaching students. She makes the Law course fun and you do learn quite a lot. Out of all the teachers I have met, she is the most dedicated.

such a great teacher! She's so passionate. She does have a special way of teaching and a unique sense of humour, but if you get used to it she's really awesome. If you respect her she will respect you
