My daughter came out of her class knowing less than she did before. Elaine has straight out told my child there is no point of her being in her class. Shame on her.

One of the nicest teachers I've actually had. She's strict but then you actually learn in her class, and if she doesn't like you that's your own fault. Clear instructions and does a good job answering questions

I was in French in Elementary school, then switched to English. She is a very good teacher, she is very clear on instructions, if I have a question I am always welcome to ask. The people that do not do very well in her class are the people that don't try very hard. Her exams are hard, but no too hard that you can't get an A, if you try. Honestly though, she is a bit rude and will call you out in front of the class sometimes.

Ms. Lin is not an incredible French teacher as she is not the best at French. She also can be unfair, have unrealistic expectations and she has a different mood every day.

her french class is very challenging. she will give out alot of homework and will mark hard. You will most likely get a bad mark but should come out of her class with a lot more french than what you began with.

She's easily the best English teacher at the school. Super helpful, efficient, and fair. I feel like the people who don't enjoy her class are usually the ones who don't care about school whatsoever.

She's one of the best English teachers in the school if you're a good student. Lets you know what is expected very clearly, follow the rules in her class and you'll do well.

SHE DOESN'T FOLLOW THE SCHOOL POLICY! Elaine penalizes you for not finishing your homework by dropping your mark, not just your work habits(illegal). Which for me, having the ocassional "oops, I forgot my hw!" moments, screwed my mark up really bad

Listen, like all of us, my girl Elaine has her good and bad days. Sometimes she flips over inconsequential things, but all in all, she is an effective teacher. Her class is no walk in the park, though.

Get on her good side or you're doomed. If you plan on getting an A in her class forget it. A high B is all that is ever recieved by her.

She picks and chooses clear favorites. If she dislikes you, life will be hell. Her class is pretty tough too, she's strict but she does come up with some unique and enjoyable games and projects.
