Extremely biased, she definitely and obviously plays favorites with the students. That's just great if you are lucky enough to be one of them, but can be devastating for any student who doesn't fit her ideals.
Ms Kim was my grade 12 English teacher. She was one of the hardest teachers I've ever had, yet I also got the highest English mark I've ever gotten because she motivated me to try. Her mantra was first and foremost one of university preparation. By the end of her course I really had cultivated a deeper understanding and appreciation of essays, and I loved her choice of literature! Her marking was tough but in my opinion completely fair! If English is a subject you like, you'll love her!
Firstly Ms Kim plays favorites. Just to let you be prepared if you're having her in the next year or two. She likes upbeat, happy people who enjoy feminism and drama. She likes people that remind of her, not that that's a bad thing. I was one of those people.
If you're generally a happy, or relaxed person, and you do your work / at least try in her classes, she will like you, and you will have the time of your life. If not, you will feel as if she's constantly picking on you.
Ms Kim is one of the most hard working teachers at Rosedale. She will help you whenever you need to and even talk with you for hours if you're having problems. Once you understand her way of marking, you will thoroughly enjoy her classes.
Kim Snider is one of those teachers that you look back on highschool and think "I wouldn't be where I am today if I hadn't known her." In each class I took with her-- drama classes and elective English classes-- those were the classes I looked forward to most. She is a wonderful teacher and a wonderful person, and I'm certain I'm not the only person who's life she impacted in such a positive way. If you have an opportunity, definitely take a class with her!!
To the fellow who is complaining about being told they aren't special: I've come to understand it was because you were pushing her to extend a due date because you had failed to complete and hand in an assignment on time and your excuse was that you're "special". She replied with the fact that she considers no one special enough to avoid the consequences for late assignments. Get over yourself, Ms.Kim is a fantastic teacher.
I love Ms. Kim! I will actually miss her so much after I graduate...she is just a refreshingly genuine human being and she knows what she's doing. I love when she tells stories, she's hilarious. Honestly, it is really nice to find a teacher who can relate to students, is excellent at what she does and is simply enjoyable to be around...MS. KIM YOU'RE AWESOME AND I LOVE YOU
I love Ms Kim! She thinks I'm a good writer, even though she's my drama teacher, and has given me many opportunities. I have learned so much from her this year. Last year, I wanted to take drama because I thought it was easy, but now I'm a much better actress thanks to her. I love drama class and I am sad when I have to miss it. She is a very inspiring person and I wish she could be my teacher every year because I would be such a great student thanks to her. I will never forget what she taught me. ILY!!
She helped my writing style quite a bit. "Tough, but fair" -to quote Brendan Frye
miss kim is probably one of the funnyest and down to earth ladies iive ever met, on top of that shes one of the best drama teachers i've ever had. i love when shes sarcastic. ahah.
one of the most inspiring people ive ever encountered in my life
I LOVE YOU MISS KIM!!! Drama is the only reason that makes me want to come to school. Seriously, I would be skipping if it wasn't for you.
Favorite Teacher Ever. I had her for Media Studies, Grade 12 English &Writer's Craft. She's great, down to earth, and easy to talk to. I was never sure if she liked me but I loved her. She really made me want to write. She was inspiring and someone I will never forget. She's a great teacher and most of her classes were interesting. She was the only teacher that really prepare me for university in grade 12 and I will always be thankful that I had her for a teacher.
Ms. Snider is an awesome teacher who obviously loves her job. She has patience for all of her students, and is a very fair marker. Her imitation of her mother is priceless!
Ms. Snider rivals with two teachers for my favourite teacher spot. She's so cool and so very nice! She was my Drama teacher and she taught my sister before me. She's so understanding and really helpful on any assignment. I can't wait until Grade 12 so i can take Writer's Craft! Even though she doesn't teach me this year, she still says hello to me and talks to me. It's very comforting. I remember once her and Mr. Wei had a spat about who I liked better. All I can say is "Drama teachers are the best!"
I wouldn't be where I am today if it wern't for Kim. She is honestly the best mentor I could have come across. She influenced me to change my learning habbits. She truly has impacted my life in the most positive way possible.
I found Kim Snider to be a really clear teacher who is fun! Her classes are engaging, and her course material was interesting. She is a tough and fair marker - you have to earn your mark with her!
i love miss snider, she is so awsome... congrats on your award mrs snider
Ms. Snider is awsome! She is someone who knows what she is talking about when it comes to English and Writers Craft, she's tough but she is fair. Go Ms. Snider!!!!!!!!
I have Ms Snider for English and Writer's Craft and she's on of the greatest teachers i've evr has because she's just like a grown up student and she makes things interesting. and she's easy to relate to because she's not a afariad to talk to her class about more then school. she shares some of the most interesting stories with us, and things are always interesting with her. She's one teacher i'll miss when im gone.
I like Ms. Snider. She's nice and the Drama department has fun things for us to do. She isn't that strict, but of course any normal person would get mad when people don't do the work.
She's really supportive and always willing to help. There should be more teachers like her.
I recently found out she reads these... Go Ms Snider! YAY!
ok i guess...there are some other better teachers...but she was nice..
She's still trying to prove herself to her collegues, as she just finished school, which can have some very bad impacts on students.
Very down to earth, not preachy like some teachers, she treats students like equals.
Ms Snider has a very distinct way of conducting her class and i think the students benefit from her ways of teaching. Shes a great teacher and she treats every student with the same respect. Overall, shes awesome!
