After having Mrs. Ballantyne for two years for IB History, I've developed a fascination with the subject. Initially, in grade 11, I dreaded this class, as I thought Ballantyne was cold and heartless. However, in grade 12, History is my favourite class, and my perception of the course is completely different. I highly encourage anyone reading this to take IB History; it's tough at first, but it becomes much better.
She is the best teacher ever!!! She always explains things well and is so much fun to learn from. If you have her you are very luckey because she taught the most i think any teacher has before. Love her!
Best Socials, English, and IB History teacher ever! Had her in grade 8, 11 and 12. Best class was IB History. Explains everything so clearly and exams aren't that hard.
Very good teacher. Explains everything well so you can understand.
I LOVE Mrs. Ballantyne. She always has funny stories and you can sleep during her videos and she doesn't care! Her sassy comments are what I live for. She's super fun. And shes a great teacher, I understand everything and she makes class fun.
A great teacher. She knows what she's doing and is hardworking. She is a easy marker and usually gets your assignment back the following class even if it is a large project. There was many note taking in socials and I liked how she would let you copy down the notes first before explaining them. Her classes are not particularly fun or interesting but she is a good teacher. While she is nice in general, there are a few students that she is prejudiced towards because of their older siblings even.
She's a really good teacher. She knows her informaton, gives clear notes, and help you prepare for everything. But she shows really boring videos every class and is pretty strict compared to other teachers. Don't make her angry. Just stay quiet and answer her questions NORMALLY.
answers questions well, knows a lot more than she has time to teach, makes things enjoyable, funny, relates well, devoted to history, familiar with (history) movies, cool.
she's the best teacher! her work is hard, but its easy when she teaches it! best socials teacher i've had so far.
easily one of my favourite teachers throughout my years here
She's got to be ONE of or my favorite teacher this year. Her instructions are very clear and she's helpful! Even though her jokes are a bit corny, I still laugh at them.
In 1997 she was great. It was her, not any English teacher that forced me to learn how to write a proper essay and how to organize facts to support my arguments. I went on to get a history degree.
she's smart and she's a good teacher. she's kindof mean though, and a little harsh. that's the only thing i have agianst her.
best social studies teacher ever. she gave out clear notes and was very resourceful. if you studied her notes well, should ace final exam with ease.
AMAZING TEACHER! I recommend her History/Socials/ or any other class she teachers over Wards anyday...Sorry Wardo ;)
She was soooooo helpful this year in Socials 11, an awsome teacher who if you ask a question will do her best to explain, and if she doesnt know the answer she will find you and tell you.
Great teacher, the right mix of notes, in class discussion and video material. And if you do bad on her tests, her projects help balance that out
Best teacher ever. She always explains everything clearly. Awesome and funny . she makes History so easy! she makes gr8 fun and explain everything about seaquam when your in gr8. REALLY KOOL!!
she's nice if she likes u nd rude if she dnt .. nvr skip her tests man..........i shld nt mind saying tht she makes discrimination
shes and awsome teacher...with great skills. She really knows what shes doing. She has GREAT notes and is easy to follow
Shes an awsome teacher! very nice and easy to understand i really enjoy her "Teacher jokes" even though they aren't always that funny. She makes learning fun and interesting.definetly my favourite teacher.
I LOVE HER, favourite teacher by far. She is such a sweet women. She is so understanding and helpful and she makes class fun, interesting, and easy to understand.
When she doesn't like you, watch out! She holds grudges from other siblings and it sucks for you!
definetly my fav teacher. shes SOO helpful. serious to get stuff done but easy going once she knows you. ive learned so much. gah she's just awesome!! thinks she's funny too.
This is the Best teacher i have had all year, she helps when u ask she assigns ressanable amounts of hw, she goes over exactly the criteria of all tests and exams. If u get her as a teacher u will have the funnest time ever in englishg or math.
this teacher was no help. only helped students that she liked. if u were on her bad side she never would help you and she would be every rude
I only had you for one class, and two years later you still remember my name.
Awesome teacher! She can always help out and gives you lots of compliments on ur work... but thats if ur on her good side;)!
From afar, looks like she's frowning and sad, but really she's very nice and sweet. She is strict but she has a very nice side as well. Great teacher overall.
thinks she funny...so isnt but is still a great teacher
MY FAVOURTITE TEACHER!!!! GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!!!! need I say more?
She's a great teacher, lucky to have her for both english and socials.
