DO NOT CHOOSE HER CLASS if you want to get into engineering. Your mark would drop 10 % compared to other teacher's classes. She thinks that HER answer is the ONLY correct answer for quizzes and labs.I’m really serious here.

Best chem teacher i've had in my whole 12 years of school. Even better than some of my current chem profs in uni. Her notes on the whiteboard are very useful and precise. She is a tough grader and might call on you during class, so know your material. Even if you do really bad in chem20 (I finished with a 62, different teacher of course), if you get Ms. Stirrett for chem30, you'll do good (i ended with an 83). DEFINITELY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE PRACTICE TESTS SHE POSTS ONLINE. They help a lot.

had her for chem 30, best experience ever. she's very passionate and knowledgeable about the course material. her notes are well organized, and her classes are always fun because of the student interaction and jokes every so often. the quizzes can be a bumpy road sometimes, so you have to be extra careful with those. she also assigns google classroom assignments that are kind of a pain to do sometimes. overall a really pleasant person to talk to, 10/10 would recommend

Scariest teacher I've ever met. Does not let go of you until you answer her question. But she gives godlike notes and has a great sense of humor. Do your homework if you're in her class, she will randomly select students.

Godlike notes. Ms. Stirrett is scary not gonna lie. But she's amazing. She knows basically everything there is to know about chem, and she's enthusiastic about it. She'll probably make you feel a bit stupid, but whatever. Her tests are hard, and she marks with no mercy. But i still love her.

Very good chem teacher. Very knowledgeable and has a good sense of humor, especially if she likes you. She's very nice and cares about all her students success and is always available before school, at lunch and after school if you need help with anything.

She's a great chem teacher, but is intimidating. You'll do fine if you're smart and can understand right away. Do your homework because she calls on you in class, and it actually helps - a lot. Picks on you if you're a slacker. Amazing notes.

Great if you are on her good side (better if you are her favorite). Quality notes and explanations. She bumps marks up at the end of the term.

When I had her for Chem 25IB I didn't like her. But I'm taking Chem 30 right now, and I realise how much I had learnt from her, and how she really was a good teacher.

Mrs. Stirrett is the best teacher in Ross Sheppard, hands down. She does not really play favourites (although it may seem like it) but she cares about her students immensely.
