Best English teacher ever!
She taught me so well I got into UBC!!! I aced the Eng 12 provincial exam because she taught me how to write effective essays!
A VERY HARD MARKER THAT MARKS BASED ON HER OPINION. It is literally impossible to get an A with her.
cool and awesome
Decent teacher, horrible marker. If you plan on getting anything above 80% in your English course avoid her at all costs.
Mrs. Berda is the best English teacher ever! She is super organized, caring, and most of all, she teaches you a lot! She's fabulous!
She is a very thoughtful but difficult teacher, she is very strict and to the fine print, she needs to lossen up and enjoy being with students more like other teachers instead of always constantly trying to crunch numbers.
She is a good person but not the best teacher. I find her way too schematized, you HAVE to do things as she says, which leaves no room for your own creativity(like 2 lines in a paragraph intro are not correct, it MUST be 1!)And all that she teaches is very bookish! Nothing over concrete sentences that are taken down from some book or the internet. Also grammar for us this year was self study, we only mark in class. quite often that she marks us wrong on answers that ask for "our opinion" :/
She is nice and you learn a lot by the end of the year. But sometimes i find her really confused. She says something one class and says the exact opposite the next class. Also it's really rare that i get the answer the question i ask; most of the time she just repeats what the book or notes say.
A super organized teacher who is always passionate about teaching! She taught us a lot and prepared us well for university! The best teacher ever!
probably the most attractive teacher at palmer but a very hard marker. she marks for the provincials. very nice person tho.
A cheerful and energetic teacher, Ms. Berda shows us how the language is supposed to flow in an artistic sense. She prepare many students for L.P.I. and Provincal successfully with her "you are responsible" teaching approach.
Her mood to teaching helps me a lot. Always excited about what she's teaching, good at tolerating chattiness. That's cool, cause she doesn't nag, and our class ends up listening to her. Seriously expects you to do homework.
She is a great teacher! She marks hard, but her classes are amazing. Classes last really fast. Sometimes I wished class would last longer. She always smiles and her voice is soft.
She's not a HARD marker. I'd say that she's fair. Participation will get you further in class and discussions help on writing your term paper.
