Well she was nice but sometimes she would get angry easily but usually she kept cool. Her classes were very chill and easy going BUT it was sort of hard since I wasn`t the best and being in a 10 IB class was pretty different for me. So if you understand things easily then you`ll be okay in her class otherwise, brace yourselves since it`s hard if you don`t! None the less, you`ll pass even if you don`t try too hard. She was unorganized though which was the only thing that made me kind of annoyed.
She is favourite teacher of my grade 10 year, her english class is the most chill course out of all of my IB courses so far. She knows what she is doing, and her classroom discussions really help you understand a text or play (as long you at least understand it a little bit). She is willing to spend time after school to help you improve your essays or just talk about different pieces. Her funnies are also a great way to break the ice and start the class.
personally i'm really bad at english but she made it really easy for me to understand. love her funnies! the time she wastes is well wasted. never a dull moment in her class!
Really engages some students in the discussions. Improved my writing. Did not finsih ciriculum. Only problem-she told us that if we brought notes for a test, we could use them, then didn't test at all
i love this teacher! she makes english class so fun! i especially enjoy her stories, she just starts telling them out of nowhere, but they are really funny most of the time! overall awesome teacher!
I could go on for ages about how this woman did nothing for me. Her priorities lay with her funnies. Never finished books, decided to just watch the movies instead. No insight whatsoever
Explains well enough, but we're on a different line for senses of humor, her "funnies" aren't actually funny 95% of the time. Class is doable overall, and if you do anything that annoys her, a 10 minute rest in the hallway is all you seem to get. (great!)
over all a good teacher, a little bit of a hard marker, but tells us how to improve
Will go through written assignments you don't do well on with you and tell you how you could improve them, then lets you rewrite the assignment to improve your mark. A lot of the class time is spent off-topic.
Makes English fun, but a bit frustrating because she wastes a lot of time. Overall, okay teacher.
Never fails to make class fun and enjoyable. She does have a tendency to go off-topic at times, but I'd rather that than have a boring class. Amazing knowledge on the mechanics of the English language. A fair and reasonable marker. Without a doubt, my favourite teacher this term.
One of my favourite teachers! I learned so much and classes were actually fun! I was definately prepared from 30IB...my marks are still great!
I learned NOTHING with her. Terrible teacher. Talked about cats. Fun while you slack, but you WILL pay BIG TIME in 30IB when you are so devastatingly unprepared. Nice lady though.
I loved being in her class for both 10H and 20IB. She's cool and funny.She made english a fun class!
Wow what an awesome class. She's a very personable teacher, and class is usually quite fun.
Consider yourself hitting the jackpot if you are in her class. She's excellent at teaching. Friendly as well. Oh, don't forget to ask for your "funny of the day".:)
Ms Shannon is one of the colest teachers at western; she tries to make english fun for eveyone, because lets face it sometimes its really boring.
