Extremely tough marking teacher. She definitely chooses favorites and comes across as very rigid. She assigns extremely boring work and tonnes of it. Worst teacher at Gonzaga.
I absolutely loved English because of Ms. Pius. Her essay writing tips were very useful and helpful. The topics and lessons discussed in class changed my perspective on life. As long as you pay attention and do the homework you will be prepared for the class. Thanks miss for being so amazing
She is absolutely amazing. She offers her help when you need it. Her essay writing tips are really good and she gives you a lot of opportunities to learn. Thank you Miss!!
Just wow best teacher I ever knew out of all my high school days. Very very good teacher and very useful
English with Ms Pius was amazing, i learned so much in her class. One of the best teachers at Gonzaga! I found her class to be very challenging, however if you participate and do the homework and annotations not only will you be satisfied with your grade, but you will be amazed at how much you learned and how well she prepared you for Uni! I truly feel confident going into a university lecture this September because of this amazing teacher! would recommend her class 100%
Incredible teacher, I'm not sure why she isn't teaching university.
No words can express how smart this teacher is...learned so much in her class! I am in first year University and her teaching made all the difference! You are amazing Miss P! I am rocking an 80% in my first year, all because of you! Don't let the haters get you down!
This teacher is one of the smartest people I have ever met in my life. She taught me so much this semester about critical thinking and information I feel very comfortable going into University! Love Ms. Pius!
I'm not going to lie- her class is really hard. However, she knows EVERYTHING. I learned so much in her class, it blew my mind. The work is all worth it, because when the course is over, you'll have a new perspective on life. I know many people say that she's unfair, but, if you participate in class, do all your work, listen and try your very best, you are sure to do well!
English with this teacher was the worst experience I've ever had. Unreasonably hard marker.
Hardest marking teacher and so unfair. I've never hated English so much.
She was the hardest marking teacher and was so unfair. Chose favourites. Boring work.
This teacher marks harder than any teacher I've ever had. If you want a decent mark for university you have to work 4 or 5 times harder than any other subject including Calculus, which at this school is a very difficult course. This teacher thinks English is the only subject that matters. She's also very intimidating and disrespectful to students. A nightmare.
Worst English teacher at Gonzaga! last year she barely taught anything. Just assigns a tonne of boring work. Very lazy. Doesn't let you take home novels or reading material to study before exams.
Awful teacher who assigns a tonne of the most boring work. Hundreds of hours of annotating. Work 24/7 and you'll be lucky to get an 80. Very unfair.
I learned a lot more than just english in her class, which helped me a lot. She's understanding and really helpful when it comes to writing essays.
the most amazing english teacher. she prepared me so well for university. i didn't like her at first because she seemed like she didn't care but she just does the tough love thing. if you ask her questions and show you care, she will too! such an amazing and knowledgable lady
greatest teacher in the school! You're lucky if you get her in grade 9 and you take english seriously.
love love love love her. i absolutely hate English but ms p helped me get through it, i loved going to her class. Once you show an interest and participate in class you cant get anything lower than a
I also just finished the 12U course with her and think she is a wonderful person. She's extremely helpful - but only if you ask. If you dont ask, you'll remain trapped forever. Ask the quesitons!!
you guys are terrible ! she is a great teacher, i just finished my grade 12 course with her and am so glad she was my teacher. she prepares students for university, and challenges your writing ! she t
I think Miss Pius is a great teacher. She's very helpful, she just doesn't like slackers.
yaaa, she really wasn't the best teacher in grade 10...but then she popped out a baby so i didn't need to deal with her. just ask her a lot of questions and she's fine.
i like her. she gives easy tests all you have to do is read her books and be nice in class and to her she will be nice to you. oh and dont be scared to ask questions.... i annoyed her with them !
okay, she's totally setting the class up for university and teaching us what we will need, but how are we going to GET IN TO UNIVERSITY when she gives such bad marks?
Hard marker and boring. I had a ninety in english in every year except 10th when I had her.... grrr
Independent Study Units are supposed to be independent. Please rethink some of your assignments. Not every assignment should be a group one.
unrealistic expectations put on students. Choice of assignments and course material extremely poor. English should be enjoyable, not a boring burden. Thanks.
hard marker but great, funny teacher!! best part was the class discussions!
liked her a lot actually, grd 9 english was quite enjoyable with her
