Really passionate about here students, also probably one of the most knowledgeable teachers I know. Marks will be sad (really sad) if you're in the earlier grades. But don't worry you find your way. She can be strict but it helps prep you. Ignore the depressing marks. Its worth the teaching. Don't misbehave, wear your uniform. And if you're in ib, know that she's one of the best teachers to prepare you for exams.
Quite literally, the most important teacher I ever had. Unfortunately, even her prowess couldn't save some of the useless, spoiled -- and to-this-day, evidently, grammatically impaired -- souls posting here just because she refused to confirm they were the geniuses their parents assured them they were. She was tough; no more than any prof worth his or her salt is. But more than that, she was lovely and endlessly encouraging. And you should be so f*cking lucky as to get her as your teacher.
Useless. Trust me. I am currently studying for a phd and have never had a worse teacher in my entire educational life. She is literally a loser, in the wrong profession, hates her life, biased, etc. She does not mark objectively, she marks based on the name at the top of the paper. She adopted kids because no guy would date her because of how she is...that says a lot about her as a person. If you don't relate to how she was in high school (introverted, bookworm, etc) she marks hard end of story.
A lot of people don't like Devine because she isn't easy and they just want to slack off, but I thought she was great. I learned more from her than any other English teacher I had in high school. She's nice to you if you're respectful, knows her stuff, and is pretty funny at times too. I admit she marks hard and gives a lot of assignments, but it's only cause she cares about her students and wants them to become better. If you're willing to work hard, you WILL do well in her class.
Ms. Devine is truly one of the best teachers ever! She is one who cares about her students. She helped me through grade 9 English and she was the reason as to why I never gave up. I'll admit, she is an extremely hard marker and assigns lots of work. That is never a bad thing. If you do your work, listen, and try your best she will like you. Thanks Miss!!! You are the best!!!
She's very strict. Explains things well, but moves to quickly and piles a lot of homework on you. Too many lessons at once, that it can sometimes get confusing. Just work REALLY hard!!!!!
She is too smart to teach high school students. She is funny when she acts like we are all idiots. Be a bluebird.
One of the best English teachers that I ever had. Even years later, I still remember some of the things that she taught me. Don't lament her teaching - you're missing what this teacher has to offer.
Too strict and has no sense of humour. Needs to get out more.
She's very difficult BUT that is never a bad thing...in the earlier grades. You don't want a teacher that will just let you slack off. She's a good teacher, but at times too hard.
Difficult Marker but she recognizes when your working hard. Very nice lady and probably the best teacher teaching wise I've ever had.
If you ever get on her bad side, she'll start marking u harder and harder, ...THERE IS NO PLEASING THIS WOMAN
Ms. Devine is the best english teacher anyone can have in terms of actually learning. Not an easy marker, but work hard and you'll succeed.
what a sweetheart! Wonderful person inside and out. work hard, and it will all pay off in the end.
Complacent and bitter. Treats her students like a gaggle of drones. Displayed zero interest in wahtever subject it was she claimed to be teaching. Sad.
A hard marker, but that's to get you to work harder. I thought she was a great teacher. I wonder if she'll date former students?
she was nice but we are in high skool grade 10 remember taht one!!!
A very, very, very hard marker, but she is the nicest lady you will ever meet.
Ms. Devine is a divine teacher. She explains things really well and is easy-going. Really nice.
She sometimes brought her personal problems to school which I didn't particularly like, but I was on her good side so I came out with a decent mark
A hard marker but such a sweet person. Work hard and she will help you.
not an easy marker but is a realie nice person...u halfto work hard in her class
