She is without a doubt my favourite teacher of all time. She makes class so entertaining, I actually listen to what she has to say, which is great when test time comes a rolling because then, I don't have to study. Not only is she a great teacher, but an amazing person. Her open-mindedness is infectious and her jokes are so terrible, they make me laugh my head off. Thank you, Tempo School for hiring such an amazing person.

This is a woman who does not teach but educates. She is someone whose knowledge will impact me for the rest of my life, as everything she teaches is relevant, unbiased, and extremely useful. Not only does she expertly cover the Alberta curriculum, she goes above and beyond to make the students' experience an enjoyable one. She teaches life skills no one else will, and will go out of her way to help you no matter when, overall generally cares about the students' success more than anything else.

She's very intelligent woman and is not a braggart. She knows what she's talking about and makes class fun. By far, one of my favorite teachers. I hope she becomes Principal some day. Not saying that she pretty much basically is and that Dr. Mitchell is bad, no. Dr. Mitchell's kool...cuz he wears bowties :D

She's a really good teacher, but decidedly better for history than for latin. Not the easiest teacher, but I think she tries to make the hard stuff much easier
