Mrs. Ryan is hands down the most intelligent teacher at D'OC. She knows what she teaches to a tee, her anthropology, psychology and sociology course was the best course I had taken in all of high school. This woman truly knows what she is talking about, however stay on her good side. She makes up her mind quickly about a student, trust me I would know. However, treat her with respect and she will return it back. Amazing teacher, highly recommend you take her course in grade 11 or 12.
Literally the smartest woman ever. So knowledgeable and I could listen to her lectures for hours, she knows everything. Best teacher at DO'C hands down.
Wow - so here's a long over-due review. Ms. Ryan is responsible for turning my life around entirely. She is almost solely responsible for making me realize my potential, and without her I would have never gotten to where I stand today. Not only is she an intelligent and influential teacher but, having graduated two years ago in the class of '13, I can truly say that you won't realize the things she teaches you until long after you've left DO'C. Probably the best history teacher in the world :).
One of my favourite teachers at DOC! I could listen to her talk for hours, she is one of the smartest people I know! Such an honor to have her as a teacher :)
Ms. Ryan is probably the most intelligent teacher I had at DO'C. Her anthropology, sociology and psychology class is easily one of the most interesting courses I've taken. I was never bored listening to her lectures. Her reviews were very organized and easy to complete. And if you did the review and studied it, the test was a piece of cake. She's tough and strict, but if you abide by what she says then you will do good in her class. Ms. Ryan for life!
Mrs.Ryan is an amazing teacher who truly knows about anthropology, sociology and psychology. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful, stay on her good side! Great teacher.
Mrs. Ryan was the toughest and best teacher I've had. I was never bored in her class and I would love to speak with her again about ancient Egypt.
She makes up her mind quickly on a person's capability and nothing you do can alter her judgement. Inflexible and unwilling to support all students. Clearly stated that if you are on an IEP, you didn't belong in her class.
One of DO'C's finest. Loved history. She's absolutely hilarious. She knows her stuff, and her insights are fabulous. Just don't get on her bad side. Because there'll be much wailing and gnashing of te
One of the best teachers at D'OC! Smart, funny, and kind of strict, but she makes sure things get done. History was spectacular :)
Most of what she taught me has proven to be useless or wrong in university. It's great to be a fun teacher in high school, but it's even better to prepare your students for after, which she didn't do
Shes amazing i think shes the most intelligent person I've every met. Once you get past her death threats its smooth sailing lol
shes actually REALLY smart, and she teaches good. the onli ONE flaw she has is that she teaches TOO much for me to remember everything! lol
shes probably the only teacher that can really capture my attention in class. the way she talks makes things interesting and easy to understand, i love her classes.
tough class but i loved going to listen to her talk..she's so smart and seems to be able to answer everything.
One of my all time favourite teachers; one of the best role models a person can have. History was always fun and sociology next sem. will definately be good 2.
There were students that for whatever reason she did not like.I was one of those,she said some hurtful things to me that affect me still - over 10 yrs later.
will never forget mrs ryan, she knew everything.. I loved the random history facts as we learned & her classes although sometimes hard, were always my favorite
Mrs Ryan if you ever read this you told me I could be anything I wanted, thanks. JC '04
My best compliment in my teaching career was that I was like Mrs.Ryan!! She made history come alive and interesting, I hope to continue to do the same! Thanks!!
Best Teacher I ever had! An amazing experience...I guess that's why I am a history major at University...thanks Mrs. Ryan!
most unbelievable teacher ever! I feel like she knows everything! She could convince me of anything.....she makes me want to be a teacher! awesome class
Mrs Ryan was one of my favorite teachers. History came alive - one was never bored in her class, from either her tearing someone apart, or learning history.
Cool teacher, really knows her stuff. Can't handle her ideas/facts being challenged though.
Amazing teacher! Best I've ever had, everything is so clear and so precise. I could listen to her allll day
shes a hard teacher..she teach us about history but also the facts about real life after h.s.she gives you a reality check when she thinks you need it..
Only stupid people who don't understand learning don't like Mrs. Ryan. She is the smartest lady alive and definetly the best teacher
