As an English teacher, she's okay, but she's a hard marker to the point of being unreasonable.
She's so nice once you get to know her (although if you don't she can seem intimidating). She's super passionate about her subject and she really pushes you to do your best. Yes, she is a pretty strict marker but that's only because she knows you can improve. Love her!
she needs to learn that other people have opinions and ideas too and quit trying to force her students to use her ideas instead of their own, and stop suppressing their creativity.
Ms. O'Farrell is a rock star. It is so easy to hold a conversation with her and she really knows how to draw the best out of her students. She's a wonderful teacher and I admire her greatly. Although she is quite a strict marker, if you try hard enough you'll work your way up.
Wonderful. What more can I say? She is one of HC's best.
It is funny how those who don't like Ms. O'Farrell thought that she was a great teacher until they saw how her marking. She might be a hard marker, but as a teacher she has unmatched talent. It is sad how opinions of her as a teacher often depend entirely on the mark she gives, and not how well she teaches. My mark for this last essay was lower than I thought it would be, but rather than complaining about Ms. O's supposed lack of teaching skills, I plan to use her feedback to improve my writing.
Ms. O is the best English teacher I have ever had! She is brilliant, well-spoken, and very knowledgeable. She is quirky and demands (and receives!) respect from her students and colleagues. I've learn
I felt that my writing improved under her direction.
The fact that she is a hard marker makes me do abetter job on all my projects and hand them in on time. i LOVE her and i have learned SO much from her this year.
regardless of marks, I think she is a hilarious person and a really gifted teacher. I actually leave her class knowing that I am smarter than I was when I entered, I would consider that more important
Ms. O'Farrell is the best dressed teacher at HC, hands down. But yeah, she is a hard marker, and I got 70% on my English exam, but she made class fun. She's a good teacher.
Find her to be shallow & of the opinion she's superior to others. Don't find her helpful & have learned the least in her class. Favours ditzes...She's not that bright!
LOVE HER! she has such a laidback hilarious & interesting approach to the course. i've learned so much and we're always laughing in her class. looove her clothes too.. great style.
She does make class more interesting, but she has a cold tone. Also really unapproachable.
BLESS YOUR HEART YOUR GREAT I LOVE YOU .. but i do agree with the person below she is a VERY tough marker, but c'mon guys, admit it, she's fair
cool teacher I really like her sometimes I don't understand her marking scheme but ... really nice lady :)
A good teacher, however she favors those who share her opinion and often looks down on those who challange the course.
She is a hard marker, but then she's really encouraging! She helped me a lot to improve my writing skills in English! (not my 1st language) I think she's cool!
she's a very hard marker and not always fair. I had her last year, and I got low 70s, but this year, I'm getting high 80s-90s in English.
