All these people bashing on Eng either didn't work hard enough or are garbage at English. She really wasn't that hard. Yes, her class is boring, but she tried to tie her experiences and relate that to theme of English. The tests were never really that hard, as long as you read the assigned story and understood the underlying themes you could easily get 86+. And for people complaining about the homework, it was never really that bad either, I always copied it from the book at lunch (block 4 eng)
Ms Eng teaches from the heart and holds us to a high standard. She is available to her students and really cares about them. She has a lot of life experience that can help us if we are interested and willing to listen. Sometimes her teaching sounds like a philosophy class rather than English, so that's kind of different.
worst teacher i have ever had, talks for the entire class about useless information that is not relevant to english at all. marks really hards and gets mad at us for not projecting our voices when she literally whispers when she talks. gives like 5 hours of homework every class and doesn't realize the difference between AP and normal students. if you get her switch out ASAP
I learned more about her life in this class then the subject she was teaching. She is a extremely hard marker, rarely give out A's. She expects you to memorize word form word of a novel for your test. Plus she sees no problem in giving out 4-5 hours of homework a night.
Test way outside what's taught, give low grades compared to other teachers. Although helpful if you ask, she marks to every single detail and take points off for that.
Ms. Eng assigns WAY too much homework! Although she is a nice person outside of class, she gives out multiple long assignments per class, which is almost impossible to complete with all the homework from other classes in Grade 11 and 12. As far as class time goes, we spend way too much time discussing irrelevant material and learn little about the subject matter that is required to achieve high grades. Some tests given are AP English style tests, putting a lot more pressure on us students.
If english is not a strong subject for you and the only reason you got decent grades in previous years if for working extremely hard, she is not the teacher for you. She gives copious amounts of homework that stresses you out and makes you give up on trying to get a good grade. I went from in the mid 80s to high 60's because of miss eng. She also told us that we should lessen are work hours so we can do the excessive amount of homework she assigns even though some of us need to save for uni.
Ms Eng is an amazing English teacher in the sense that she knows how to teach in a way students understand, however I find she does give more homework then necessary and the vocab is not very helpful seeing as it is far too simple.
she is the worst teacher ever. give insane amounts of homework, doesnt explain anything and grades soo hard! do whatever it takes to get out of her class!!
she talks about one thing and she keeps talking about it for a long long long long ..... time!!!! altho she's experienced, she absolutely sucks at teaching, VERYVERY BORING!!!! her things dont make anysense VERY VERY HARD TO GET A GOOD MARK
Because I had Mrs. Eng as my English teacher on three separate occasions I got to go to university. If she hadn't given me all that homework, all those tests and assignments I wouldn't have gone from a regularly all around C student to an A student in English. I wouldn't have gotten in the 90s on both my English and English Lit provincials and I wouldn't have brought my average up enough to get into Ottawa U. Thank you Mrs. Eng.
She talks about random things like the starvation of people in ethiopia, biblical terms, and random things about her life...but nothing about english! Then gives us a test about things we dont even know! And her voice is soooo monotone ur asleep half the time....and you can never get better than a 5.2 in writing in her class!!! i feel ever since i entered her class my writings gotten worse!
she will talk non stop and never let you awnser the questions she asks because she will awnser them youll do poorly if your opinion is not the same as hers
Alright teacher, but the tone of her voice when she reads... bleh.
She is such a hard marker and gives out way too much homework that no student could complete with all of their other courses
way too much of a hard marker. She seems to be nice on the outside but has some tricks up her sleeves. Definately favours some students over others.
Gives large amount of homework. If you can't manage large amounts of homework, switch out.
loves giving us essay assignments, hard marker, high expectations, but one of the best english teachers i've ever had.
She is an extremely hard teacher. If English is not a great subject for you, switch out. She gives large amounts of homework, and it is not easy. I think her classes are hard cause I haven't had teachers like her before, and she expects that you already know how to do everything. She is nice though, and if you make an appointment in the morning she is helpful. Make sure you get on her good side, because if your not, it will be your worst year of English ever - I can 100% garuntee that.
Has the wisdom of a 200 year old. Very kind-hearted. Super hard tests - too many tricks and she makes the questions sound harder than they are to confuse you. Must be insightful to do good in her class. Has an extreme paranoia for kids using tutors and etc. Sometimes she is too skeptical about students. But personality-wise, she's wonderful.
granted she gives a ridiculous amount of homework. and she's alittle monotone. but she is a good teacher. i learnt more from her in grade12 than i did from the first four i had at sentinel. very intelligent woman.
she is very hard and assigns too much work, good for AP or teaching university...
She is a so so teacher. I think she would be better off teaching lower grades though I quite like her personality...
TOO MUCH HOMEWORK!!! Some of us actually do have lives to live...
Mrs. Eng is a fantastic teacher! I learned a lot from her... very talented individual. ROCK ON!!!!!
It's nice to have her as an English teacher, even though she is sooo hard. I like her.
OMG!!! So MUCH HOMEWORK...WHAT IS THIS READ A STORY ANSWER 9 QUESTIONS WRITE AN ESSAY ON SHASPEARE, CHOOSE PASAGES...etc
incredible teacher... she can sacrifice her lunch time giving you extra help... THE BEST!!
Incredibly helpful and devoted to her job...
she's an awesome teacher, especially in lit..
she's not easy, but i don't think teachers should be.
If you get her, get out of class ASAP, get into AP English if you can't.
a very good teacher. even though shes hard, she is always available for extra help ^^
Great Teacher. Goes out of her way to help her students
