We called her the Pohnstar behind her back haha she was lovely as IB coordinator, and we all loved her. Sweet person, funny, very approachable. Count the number of times she says "yes" during a lesson!
Easily one of the best teachers in the school. She helps a lot to her best abilities to every student in IB. Her hard work will always be appreciated.
She was my IB coordinator for two years and my English teacher for Grade 12 IB and I cannot thank her enough!!!! She cares about all the students and really wants all of her students to succeed ~~ She prepares the IB students really well !!
Her exams are more memorization-based than skills-based. Still, she should really start sharing the hedge!
She's very nice and supportive: no matter how poorly you're doing and how many no's you hear from your other teachers, Ms. Pohn is always there to nod and listen to what you're saying and respond with a "Good." She's gentle at correcting you, and as long as you do all your work and talk a bit in class, you'll do fine. The best thing to do in English class (Pohn's or otherwise) is just to develope a genuine love for books and reading. You won't go wrong with that :)
Had Pohnyboy for three years. I enjoyed her very much. Her name is spelled Joanne, for the record, although Joan Pohn sounds much better. Helped me get 98 on the provincial.
you go to class, write a journal, the class discusses, and ms. pohn just says mhm to what we have to say. I haven't learned a thing or become a better writer.
Nice enough teacher, but many times referred to as the dictionary. Kinda.. bland.
sooo boring....you always do pointless assignments and spend all the class doing one lesson in your language power book.
An awesome teacher. Sets high standards, but if you meet them it is well worh the work.
Nice teacher, a little boring but she has good intentions.
She is really hard I think its because shes actaully an IB teacher. she is pretty boring sometimes but it is englsih. she doesnt force you to learn which is ok
She....enjoys.....leaving....."dramatic".....pauses.....in.....her lectures.....although this does mean you don't have to learn very much each class.
I had Ms. Pohn for IB11 English. Class was sometimes dull, but she was very nice and helpful.
