Grade 10 enriched English is a fairly difficult course, but Atkinson is very knowledgeable and has an entertaining dry sense of humour. She's a hard marker, though, and some marks feel arbitrary. It's a good class, but beware of pop tests!
The sarcasm is strong and funny.
She knows her stuff and is willing to help. You have to work for your marks and she is very fair.
Before I'd had her as a teacher, I'd heard such a vast array of opinions of Atkinson. The general consensus was that she was terrible and mean and a really hard marker, but that has not been my experience so far at all. She has a very dry sense of humour which is amazing, and genuinely cares about each of her students without picking favourites. She is very knowledgable with everything she teaches, and is always happy to help. I'm so glad I got her in my final year.
She is a knowledgable teacher that can get the things you need to know throught to you.
Ms. Atkinson seems to have a polarizing effect on her students. However, love her or hate her, you're going to come out of this class knowing how to write an essay. She's hard, but fair. Recommended.
She's a good teacher, and definitely knows what she's doing. If you give her your respect you will have hers.
I've had her for two years. She's amazing. Very intelligent, very witty. Definitely one of my favourite teachers. People who don't like her are just pissy about actually having to do work and earn the
She's actually a good teacher, even though she's older she still knows how to keep things interesting
A lot of people think she's difficult but I always learn a lot from her. Ask for help and she'll give it. If you take the time in her class you'll do very well. She's a no-BS person, which I like.
Great teacher. Makes students earn their marks but is always fair. Knows her stuff, wonderful lady. If you do the work to the best of your ability and are respectful you will succeed.
whispers everything and is pretty mean to her students, stressful class and not at all understanding.
Too quiet, and a little intimidating. Really smart though, and you learn a lot!
she is extremely friendly and intelegent. She is a great teacher but you will have to work hard to recieve a good mark.
An Excellent English teacher! Very knowledgeable and very funny.
Great teacher. Tough but fair. Keep on her good side and do your homework.
Mrs. Atkinson is a fine teacher. She's no BS, which is something I like very much in a teacher. Some might find her tough; she is usually quite fair. And a wicked sense of humour (some don't get it)
Best English teacher I had at Central. If it was between Ms A or Harder I would pick Atkinson in a second, but if you are a potential student try shutting up and listening to her
