Ms Hollingsworth is a wonderful teacher. Yes she is hard, that is her job. She teaches us to be better and stronger. If you can't learn the exercises, pass the exams or give 110% everyday then you shouldn't be in the program. This isn't community centre dance class. This is legit. She is an inspiration, drives us and makes us the best we can be. She also truly cares about each student. I hate this new babysitting expectation and participation medals for showing up. Get over it millenials!
It's been an absolute pleasure being one of her students. She comes off as a tough cookie in grade ten but one you get to know her, esp. in grade eleven, she is a marshmallow. Extremely funny, caring and wise. I wish she taught all four years!
I love her so much. She's hard on you, but makes you the best you can be. Of course, sometimes she forgets what she says, but she's the best dance teacher I've ever had. She truly wants you to be good
I was never a dance major but I did spend some time with Ms H during my time at cawthra. She was one of the most genuine and caring teachers at cawthra and she definitely helped my friends out when they were facing bullying by their peers. Just wanted to share what a great person this woman is :)
One of the most amazing women I've ever met in my life.
Hollingsworth has expanded my knowledge and love of dance in ways she will never know. I love her!
She is the best dance teacher I ever had. She gives constructive criticism while complimenting on things you are doing right to keep you motivated. She definitely does not pick favorites and she hates it when people who are disrespectful. I leaned the most from dance while I was in her class because she made it fun and showed us how meaningful dance could be. She even encouraged us to develop our own technique.
I dont like her at all!!!! I went for my audition and i almost didnt get in because of her attiudem but thankfully i did
Shes really experienced and knows what shes talking about she is just full of knowledge and if you give your best she can transform you, doesn't like to admit shes wrong even if she may be, shes tough at times but mainly she wants to help you
i dont know what to think. sometimes i love her but other times i hate her.and she knows thats how people feel. she will never admit shes wrong EVER and i hate that.like seriously, giving us a kines test that was supossed to be a gr.9 review and then making it with definitions that we have never heard in our life,and then denying that we didnt know that. come on, not fair.
She's a very nice person once you get to know her. She's had her bad moments, but overall, I liked being in her class.
if you show her that you know the movements and are trying your best, then she'll turn out to be a really good teacher, she's funny too, i learned a lot in gr.10 and 11 with her.
Cares about her students. Wants everyone to suceed. Forgets what she has and hasn't told the class. Thinks everyone is out to get her.
Ms. H expects 110% from students because she is passionate about dance (and those in her class should be too!). She is not meant to be your friend - she is meant to teach you what she knows about the world of dance. Students need to keep an open mind and accept helpful critisism for what it is. Once you can get past the power struggle - you can learn to appreciate what Ms. H has to offer. I speak from experience.
i really don't like her. yes, she is a very good teacher and i'm sure she means well, but when she corrects people she acts very rude. she is very intimidating. she also expects us to know the exercises after we are shown them only once, which is an enormously high standard that is usually impossible for us to meet. she expects a teeny bit too much from us, which makes being in her class quite frustrating.
Ms.H! Well at first in the beginning of the sem i wasnt so sure about u, but as the sem continuted i started to like u more. U've been very helpful. We had our fun times, and our serious get to work times, u knew when enough was enough. Anyways, great sem and im already missing u in sem 2, though ms gibson is an awsome teacher as well. Keep it up ms. H..miss u! And thanks alot
I love this class. Thank you so much for being such a great teacher and helping everyone along to do their absolute best! I really am going to miss you when we have Gibson next sem
the best teacher-i think shes realli funny and helps us alot. her cigarette teachr story is so jks
ms hollingsworth on more than one occation critisized students' personal appearance, on the basis of how normal they looked. very unprofessional.
She can be cool...tries to show off, doesn't know what she's talking about sometimes, and always wants you too work 110% of each class when sometimes you just arent capable of that
