I hated music in grade seven and it showed. Mrs. J gave me all the resources I needed to succeed but I did not try whatsoever and didn't appreciate any of it. In grade eight, I was determined to get a better mark. I practiced diligently and daily, sacrificed my lunch breaks to practice in the music room, and joined band that year. What made me happiest at the end of the year was not my good grade but the fact that I had learned that I can achieve anything with enough effort. Thank you, Mrs. J.
Mrs. Jacobson really taught me a lot about playing my instrument over the course of two years. I absolutely loved having her since she was always so kind and helpful. She's great at directing the school band, but make sure you ask her for help when she doesn't look too busy or angry :)
Mrs. J is the best teacher at Broadview! Definitely my favourite! She kind of picks favourites (I'm one of them) but she's nice to everyone. She isn't too easygoing and she isn't to strict but ppl slack off a lot in her class and trick her quite a bit. That's the student's fault tho. Not hers.
I have read many of the less favorable ratings that people give her, complaining that she does not tolerate musical inadequacy. I apologize if this means she doesn't really like you that much, but I feel she is an astounding music teacher. I believe that she and her husband, Mr J are what makes Broadview's music program so strong. Though, if you wish your experience with her to be pleasant, I highly recommend joining band (get to know her + make her like you). Imagine having Ms. Putnam instead!
amazing music teacher and is really really nice
A great teacher that really helps out a lot especially with extra-curricular activities.😃
Mrs. Jacobson is one of the best teachers here, and understands music very well. Broadview has by far one of the best music programs in the area because of her and her husband. If you pay attention in class and play well enough she will like you, but if you just fool around and don't care about msic, just like with most teachers, you will get low grades and she won't like you. Otherwise it's fun to be in her class and in band.
The best music teacher, ever. If you fool around in class, then you will be on her bad side.
Her good side is a very good place to be in, though!
Very nice! Though I wish that she would be harder on those that just fool around! She can be very intimidating if you play your instrument while she is talking or teaching.
I love Mrs. J she is so hardworking and knowledgable! She's very kind and I learned a ton in class!!
one of my favorite teachers! she is so nice and hardworking!!!
hate her shes only nice to the kids who are good at music
Very nice, but don't get on her bad side. I've been there.
she's rlly nice and easygoing but she won't stop trying to get me to join band! :)
she can be nice but i think her brain is a little muddled.she forgets things a lot LIKE THAT I PLAY PERCUSSION AND DON'T DO THEORY she's too easy going the rest of us can't stand those stupid trumpets
I would have to disagree with everyone!Mrs.J only helps the people who have a musical ability..NO OFFENSE!She spends more time with them and les time with others!I like her though!
music is great and she really makes the band sound good
In addition to teaching a full day, Mrs. Jacobson runs four extra-curricular bands and looks after all the fundraising. She is outstanding!
hey missus j can't wait to get back to band. you rock
You are the BEST music teacher ever!! you make music sooo much fun, and you are so nice as well!!
She's a good music teacher, and is usually pretty nice, but she gets mad easily in band. Pretty easy too.
your husband is so cool! but you are a very good music teacher and you taught me an instrument i had to learn late and i caught up!! you rock mrs j! also, she makes the band 4 us:)
amazing teacher... made me half-decent at fr. horn. encourages growth
Mrs. Jacobson is a great teacher!! I learned a lot in Music this year!!
Mrs. J is way too slack. Ppl who are not in band get to socialize and play games while the band ppl go practice band peices in music class. Around 2 months has it been like this
ms jacobson is a very cool teacher. she helps me alot on trumpet. YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!
ok mrs.j ur the worst music teacher ever u need to listen to ppl when they come to u with a problem and u CAN NOT control the class at ALL.
mrs. j, U ROCK! :D you really helped me get good @ trombone and i don't wanna leave!! ;_; suprcool
Mrs. J, you were an ok teacher, i learnt alot, whether it was thanks to you or not. all star band was fun, so was the band trip and so was helping with grade 7s
I am SOOOO mad at her, she wasnt a bad teacher, but this year she's making everyone learn a diff instrument before drums or guitar!! Way to ruin the best instru
a great teacher, musically inclined and gives pretty easy stuff, also has a lot of patience methinks
negitive people suck. music makes me feel good and i like playing instruments and the band is good. she makes music fun
