She was my favourite teacher at brook hands down. She was so knowledgeable and could answer and question, and if she couldn't she would go out of her way to get an answer for you. She was so fun and energetic that even the more dull topics were fun with her! So sad she isn't here for gr 12. Her tests are kind of hard, but she gives you more than enough time and material to study to do them.

She is the best teacher ever! Im so sad that she is retiring because the younger kids will not be able to experience her brillant teaching! I love her so much, she is so energetic and funny. She is a wonderful teacher and person! She makes every second of class very entertaining and interesting. If you want a engaging and enthusiastic teacher, she is the perfect!

You can't even describe her skills in teaching... she is so good that I make sure I wake up and come to her class on time. She makes me want to come to class. When she gives a lesson, you never have any questions to ask because she is just that good at explaining. She is always energetic and she teaches her lessons using real world examples so we would understand. If every teacher was like her every student would be getting % 85+ and would love going to class. Best teacher ever period.

She will test on ALL of the material. She teaches really well, and she has a lot of enthusiasm. She will make you get a late slip if you're late, no excuses, and she WILL hound you for a note if you miss her class. 90's are attainable in her class.

She's the best science teacher I ever had. She's entertaining and just full of spirit. I was never bored in class and she's great at explaining things. Tests can be tricky at times, but it's not impossible to score in the high 90s.

Awesome person, great teacher. I'm sorry this semester is over, Bio11 was so much fun with her. Learned tons. She explains things well and clearly, helps if you need anything, and she'll talk to you after class. She's funny, good natured and always in a good mood. Likes everyone, doesn't yell, is never crabby and class with her feels just like a social gathering where you learn something really cool. Doesn't get repulsed by the fetal pigs! Way cool, Ms! We've begged her to teach Bio12, but alas. :(
