When I found out I was in her class, I was dissapointed. Now I think she is very nice and funny. I don't know why people told me she wasn't a good teacher. She gives great examples in Social Studies and sometimes goes off topic but its always interesting. She talks about current events and her opinion on it. Not only I learn new things in Social, but I learn other interesting things about the world. Great for you teaching at this school for a long time. Keep it up!!
Oh Mrs. Lucas is quite the character you got there. She always yells at us to start studying for exams and tests, but then she gives us piles of homework. What the heck how do you expect us to do this we are humans not majestic magical robots ok?
I was unfortunate enough to have Mrs Lucas twice, in Grade 9 and again in Grade 10 and it was not a fun experience. The exams were unnecessarily difficult even if I knew the material and could verbalize it, I never scored well. I always felt like instead of teaching us she was going out of her way to make things extremely difficult. I had another teach in Grade 11 and it was the similar material and I did extremely well because of the teaching method.
In all my years of high school, Ms. Lucas was my least favorite teacher. I did not learn a thing from her. Everything I needed to learn I could have read from the textbook, which would have been a better use of my time than attending her classes. Glad to know my parents spent so much money for me to go there and not even understand how the voting system works here.
Most of the time I like her and I like how she does not feel the need to get overly angry if you do nothing in her class because she knows that if we do not pay attention it will only affect us. But.. Why does she feel the need to have huge things like PODS due two days before her exam when we already have three exams in a row the same week?? Have some consideration...
So rude and DOESNT TEACH
Honestly, I wish she would give us notes and teach us about the topic...not just get us to write down everything in the textbook. She is very condescending when answering questions and it seems disrespectful. I'm not sure why she is a teacher.
Mrs. Lucas is a great teacher. She is willing to help and is able to explain things to me in a way I can understand it.
Ms. Lucas was my grade 10 homeroom and social studies teacher. She was a kind and fair teacher. Yes, she did have a tendency to be a little late on occasion, but I learned a lot. Never before or since have I been required to draw maps of the US, but the experience has served me well. I've been to three high schools as my parents were often travelled from province to province, and I learned the most while attending SMA. Thank you to Ms Lucas and all my other teachers at SMA.
She's a horrible teacher. It's unbelievable how she's been a teacher for what 30-40 years now? And yet she cannot teach. I've learned more from the textbook than from her. When you ask her to clarify something she will make everything more complicated which would make it even harder to finish projects. It's unbearable reading other people's commenting saying "She's a great teacher" when she definitely is not. So please Mrs. Lucas, do us all a favor and future SMA students and retire. Please.
Well, she's shows up late for class al the time, shows extreme favourtism and accused me of cheating on the midterm last year becuase I got a good mark. That said, I don't like her. She doesn't teach!
This teacher has been at St. Mary's way too long. She is only interested in putting in the minimal amount of effort when teaching. She does not care if students like her or not.
I love mrs.lucas shes awesome and a really good teacher. Mrs.lucas is very clear when she explains things and she is also very helpful, and always willing to assist a student when the are having troub
Such a great teacher! She's very passionate about whatever is being taught and is a dictator- so get ready to take some notes.
She is a great teacher and is all ways willing to help any student who needs it.
Just retire already! You dont seem like you wanna teach. You give questions, and let the textbook do the teaching. If you gave me an exam outline in Sept, I could learn the course on my own at home.
i like how you teach like i learnt so much from you, but you have the hardest tests!!
SMA is wasting its $ by paying her to teach. She comes to class 20 min late, then reads the paper for the next 15. I've learned everything on my own by just reading the textbook.
was it really necessary to call our class pigs? I don't believe we ever did anything to offend you.
Always late, favour kids. The first assigment I hand in imcomplelte because I didn't see 1 question, I fail? Others get more chances! Still cool. I love you!
I've only had you for a bit but you are very cool. You're funny and you are the re-incarnation of Jay Leno.
The year I had Mrs. Lucas as a teacher, was the worst year of my life.
You always pick favourites, and yell at the ppl at the back! It's funny when you get totally off-track and talk about your life!
Definately has favourites. But tells the funniest stories in law but always related to her dogs or figure skating
u do learn something..when she comes to class, that is.
Do you take a breather in every step you take or something? honestly..LATE
i love ya Mrs.Lucas you're so cool! i love the sense of humour that she brings!
extremely unhelpful, bitter and talks about how little teachers make.
