An overall friendly and helpful teacher. You can tell she's one of those precious rare teachers who wants to see her students do well, however she isn't mean and strict! She is always trying to get us engaged, and getting us to speak French and French only in her class. This is good because over time it helps develop our skills! She uses interactive activities to make the class more fun and isn't rigid and stuck in authoritarianism like many other teachers.
Uses an "immersion" style of teaching, at least for Grade 10. I had her for both French and Italian in Grade 10 and she tried to avoid using English as often as possible (less so in Italian since it was an introductory course). It seems harsh to people who aren't so familiar with the languages, but it is a very effective way of learning the language. Assignments aren't too difficult, but she can be a hard marker at times.
Best french teacher I've ever had. She explains everything, and always makes sure we understand the material. She is really nice too.
I had her for french in grade 11. I used to love french before going into her class!!! MEANEST TEACHER EVER. DONT TAKE HER CLASSES!
She marks as if we will go to French University. She singles out the students that try and don't succeed and let the other students rot.
Horrible teacher. Will straight out tell you that you are a wonderful student, and in the upper portions of her class, and that you deserve a grade higher than what she gives you. I don't understand a teacher who tells you that you deserve a 95%, but refuses to give it to you.
She gives us all our instructions in French, so we learned a lot more effectively. Really approachable for clarification
Was my teacher almost 14 years ago. Disliked her enough to come here and post. She truly knows how to turn teenagers off from learning French. She is an awful teacher- boring and her personality F-
MOST BORING CLASS EVER. She doesnt even try to make it interesting.
Knows her stuff, but very unclear and confusing. She'll say one thing one day and change her mind the next, often forgetting to tell the class. Willing to give extra help if necessary
Needs to make up her mind. First says that she won't mark our drawings for an assignment (storyboard) then includes it as part of the mark. Don't tell us it won't be part of the mark when it is.
Defintely knows the languages she teaches, but needs to ease up a little on marking things for creativity. Creativity is subjective! Especially when it's a simple phrase that you can't do much with.
Mandatori was nice to me. she plays favorites though, so try to get on her good side if possible
This is a good french teacher. Not the posers who know a bit and learn all the lessons the night before class. So nice, friendly and great to talk.
Great teacher. Nice and friendly to talk to. Makes French a bit most fun. Helpful if you have a question. Has her favourites, but who doesnt?! A++ Teacher.
Mme. Mandatori is a great teacher. Very nice, smart and interesting. She really knows the langauge French, instead of just knowing a the lessons for each day.
She manages to keep interest for everyone in a notoriously dull subject
awesome teacher-although she does play favorites....but i did good so meh
I LOVE THIS TEACHER, she makes french sooo easy i even took it in grade 10!! now thats surprizing, shes ALWAYS there to help!!!!!!!
She is very understanding and always willing to help.
