She is rude. My mom visited her on the parents night and she had no patience at all. She only spent around like 3 minutes and started giving long face. And then kept saying "sorry I'm busy tonight, I've to cut you short." Ended the conversation and pushed my parent out of the classroom. I really have no idea how she qualified being a teacher.
Man....the atmosphere in her classroom was very heavy and depressing. She's a nice person but did things that made me dislike her. She was the only teacher in my four years of high school that asked for a physical note from the coaches. Even the coaches were amazed since the names of the athletes are always uploaded onto the system they use.
I hate this teacher. We spent 5 months on 1 novel. It was hel. Our summative had LITERALLY nothing to do with what we had been learning all year. She didn't like the folder that I handed my summative in with, so she asked me to hand it in the next clas in a different folder, which wasn't too unreasonable. Then, when i handed it in, she took 5% off because it was "late". let me clarify, when I handed in all the work it was on time, but she refused the folder it was in. She can't teach at all.
I really like her so far, but if you are looking for a mark in the 90's she is not for you. She really is nit picky when it comes to essays. BE AWARE. So do not slack. She gives other opportunities to make it up though. We got vocabulary quiz's (EASY MARKS) and an in class discussion (EASY MARK) My only complaint is she does seem slightly bias towards people who she gets a bad impression of, she will pick on you if you seem to not know whats going on, she can be a bit harsh in that way.
I heard that she really cares about the maturity and complexity of an essay. She is really strict in marking essays so do your best in essay. If you got in her class and didn't know how to write decent essays, try your best or expect a Fail or 50%.
A first impression with her is EVERYTHING. Be nice, chat a bit with her, participate in class and keep up with homework. You definitely want to become one of her favorites, they always do well in the class. She will also then pick on basically everyone but you most of the time. I was lucky enough that she liked me right away so I pulled off a 90.
If you want a 90 in her class, then dream on. I have the highest mark in class and it's not an A . She's EXTREMELY stricts. I have one word that will help you survive in her class.
Be organized, do your homework, be nice to her. And she won't be that strict on you. Believe it or not, she IS helpful, she teaches well. But with uneccesaary strictness.
She's the worst English teacher I have ever had and what's worse is it's Grade 12 and English is definitely a prerequisite
nun much to say except the fact that she is THE worst Eng teacher I have ever come across. Believe me, when you ask her a lot of questions, she gets annoyed and eventually gets pissed. As a student, I have the right to ask as many questions as I want relating to school work such as clarifying an assignment or seeking extra help BUT this teacher does not have any compassion towards extra help in your need. If you see her name in ur timetable, do everything in your power to drop out immediately!!!
i always try to help other students and she keeps telling me to be quiet! and ya if she is marking she only gives a high mark for her favourites.
has absolutely no respect for her students hard work and really needs to work on that.
committed, honest, fair, compassionate and intelligent - thank you!
NOT COOL THE HIGHEST MARK SHE GIVES IS AN 80-85% I"M SERIOUS! One group did an awesome Hamlet presentation and she only gave an 85%. Also, the highest mark on the English Summative was an 82%. I read the guy's essay, it was freaking incredible.
She definately has favourites. If you're her favourite, then your mark is looking good for the rest of the year. If you're not her favourite, then you're pretty much done. Tell her an interesting fact about yourself and maybe she'll end up liking you.
Nice Lady, but as a teacher moves slowly and is eager to display authority- at all times.
I have her as a tap teacher never had her for English, but when she is providing the information like exame schedules report card, she gives the right informations and she is really nice in taps
she's back...although i hate her class (they're EXTREMELY boring), i still gotta say... i didnt get that bad for 1st term report card in gr.12.. she just gotta stop making her classes so boring.. and also, she NEVER GIVES OUT HOMEWORK. other gr.12 eng classes have written essayS already, and i STILL havent wrote ONE for my eng class.
My god, she is like the devil as a teacher, but nice when not a teacher
...I'm probably one of the very few people who like her...
not matter how hard you try, she still gives you 70s
