LOVE ORR!! She's an amazing teacher, explains things very well and if you dont understand is willing to go over things with you. She's super sarcastic, and says things that people may take offence to, but shes just brutally honest. I think she is definitely one of the best teachers in the school, but is a bit unorganized and definitely picks favourites. but overall, taking orrs class is a good choice because shes amazing
Implements technology into her courses which is outstandingly better than regular text book work, every class is fun and I look forward to going to everyday; funniest teacher I've ever had and favourite teacher I've ever had.
Very knowledgeable , easy going. Always makes her classes fun and interesting but is easily taken off topic and says a lot of things that people can take great offence to.
best teacher i ever had. and she did a god job even though i was the first grd. 9 class she taught
Orr is sarcastic and such a good teacher. ALSO she really doesnt like ET. reppin the gr12 world history class of 09!
I agree that she often picks favourites and keeps them. If you are not on her good side.. the marking is slightly skewed. Her sarcasm is often funny, but I think she could be serious a bit more.
Orr is the funniest person alive. She makes things so clear and makes things fun. Smart too, which always helps!
I think Ms. Orr is my second favourite teacher that I've ever had. I actually enjoyed history class under her and looked forwards to it most days, the only exception was when we had some lame student teacher who marked our essays.
I love history, and I love Ms. Orr's teaching style of history. I did great in her class, and I enjoyed it. However, it takes more than a good teaching style to be a great teacher. She has always been nice to me, BUT from my perspective, she has always treated some people more fairly then others (I was always treated fairly, but some of my friends were not). This is the one downfall that prevents her from being a GREAT teacher, instead of an 'okay' teacher.
I was in Orr's first class at ESS and it was the greatest. Though nothing could top that, I took three more classes with her (two histories and psych) and they were fantastic - well, not psych. I'm in third year uni and I still look back on the fun times in Orr's class. Great teacher willing to learn from students, too bad she seemed to be getting a little jaded by the time I graduated ESS.
Mr. Hannah and Miss Orr are the best teachers at ESS. They are both really tough markers, but they know their stuff and prepared me well for school. She is funny, fair and really helpful. As for the 67 - not showing up for an ISU will do that. What's with all the attacks? They're great.
She knows what she's teaching, and I love learning history, but she picks favourites, and in my experience when I worked hard in her class I still only got a %67 percent. That was a consistent average even though I got higher than that on all my tests. She's terrible. I will become a historian in spite of her low grading. I'm taking it at the university level. That will show her.
Mrs Orr has interesting classes and prepares them well. On the other hand she has a downside, which may I add has shown through the success of students council-not good. Maybe some of them are morons, however if they had a enouraging, enthusitastic leader it would have gone better. As said before, she should stick to what shes good at.
The only people who are 'on her bad side' are lazy or rude. As for Student Council, she had a useless bunch of morons to work with. I know since I had to deal with them too. I wish she was around next year. She knows her stuff and is nice to everyone.
I love Orr shes awesome, after 4 years of having her I've gotten to know her well. Great person, great teacher. Definitley get on her good side though because the people that don't, usually don't enjoy her classes. Students Council on the other hand..one word horrible and Orr should stick to teaching.
Ms. Orr is the best teacher. She is there for her students and that is what being a teacher is all about. Rock on!!
She knows lots about history, and knows how to make history sort of fun. But there is something odd about her that I can't put my finger on.
Mrs. Orr is the best. She is a bit odd (paranoid about food from others) but funny and sarcastic (in a good way). Her classes are fun and interesting.
Great teacher, great class. It's nice to have someone who knows what they're teaching.
My Second Techer ever although Im pretty sure she fears me greatly!!
