I've had her as my teacher for a long time, and as someone who sucks at participating and is definitely not her favourite, I've realized that Zieba really does try to be fair and aid her students to the best of her abilities. If you ask for help, she's there. She does her best to make it a welcoming and fun class, but I understand that it will still be difficult for those of us who are shy and quiet (me). I had a 50 in 9th grade, but I have almost a 90 now. Try enriched out; you can always switc

She's funny and understanding. She gets off track sometimes, but it's for the better because we discuss really deep and secretive topics. English was an enjoyable class when she was teaching it and I looked foward to it everyday. However, she marks extremely hard in my opinion. My final mark for that year was 10% lower than it was for previous years.

An incredibly hard marker. Plays favourites and has a clique of students who she always hangs out with at lunch. If you aren't one of these students you are screwed.

Not a super hard marker - you just have to know her style. Cares a lot about grammar and structure for essays. Likes people who participate in class discussions. Just basically talk a lot in class (and to her in your spare time) and you'll be fine.

I had Ms. Zieba for English Lit and I'm so happy that I did. She's such a nice teacher, and really, really cares about her students. She is a hard marker, but she taught me to ask for help. I started having my assignments edited by her a few days before I handed them in, and it made a huge difference in my mark. Take her suggestions, make an effort to participate, and you will be fine.

Arguably the most loved teacher (at least in English) at Massey. Essays are a bit of a challenge. Be sure to keep up with readings and finish your reading assignments! Don't wait until the morning or at lunch to crack open the chapter if you want a good test mark.

Ms. Zieba is my absolute favourite teacher and I look forward to her class every day! Her marking is intense but class is so fun that it balances out. She's the teacher that made me start loving English and writing! All the people who gave low ratings probably failed her class ;)

This is my first Year having Miss Zieba and she is like my mother away from home. She helps me sort out problems, and helps me with clarification. Her sarcasm and jokes are TOO funny. Her teaching skills are very rare (in an amazing way) and she'll guide you to the end. Her marking is very detailed but certainly made me a better writer already. I learned so much. I wish time would go by more slowly in her calss. I cant fit how much she is awesome into 500 characters though. BEST TEACHER EVER!!!!
