I won't lie, I was not a fan of Madame when she was my teacher. After I ended her class and had conversations with her in the library this year, I realized that she's a wonderful person. She has a great sense of humour and always there to help wether it be french-related or any other kind of problem. Looking back, her class was intense, but she taught me more French than any other teacher at Harbord. Her ratings before may say otherwise, but Madame is pretty awesome.
You'll hate her if you stop taking French, but appreciate her when you get a new teacher. When I had her, I hated her. Now I've realized what an amazing teacher she was, and miss her deeply. She's tough and her work takes effort and time but they're not for s & g's. Presentations and short essays are tedious but you learn so much from them. When you end the year, you'll realize that she treats you like an adult and doesn't baby you. She'll always help and make accommodations but you have to ask
She's a sweetie on the inside and a hard shell on the outside and there is absolutely nothing bad about it! Don't get her mad though, don't be sassy. Don't sleep in class she hates that. Ask her questions and she will give you a wicked advantage grade-wise.
I was incorrigible but in the end I had to admire her effort in being a tough woman.
Expectations are out of this world.... Extremely picky with tests and assignments and will dock marks for the stupidest reasons. Gives re-tests and is accomodating to marks. She'll let you redo assignments if needed, but it's usually done after school. she should remember that were not all francophones, and can't all miraculously learn all the information she packs into one class. Each class is either a new lesson, or something important. Skip her class and you'll be lost
Madame Anthony is one of my favourite teachers. She's funny, and tries to make her class as fun as possible. On the other hand, she's the toughest marker I've ever had, but she tries to help you as much as she can with marks. Her "spontaneous conversations" are the hardest and most awkward things. She always helps with work, and is very understanding. Always look going to French.
Not my best teacher, but not my worst. Has a great sense of humor but isn't always very helpful. She does go over a lot of material in class. A lot of oral presentations.
She is aweful, can't explain anything clearly, very disorganized and really lazy. Ms Anthony, it's time to renew your handouts, they are getting rather old. Also, her tests don't quite reflect what she teaches.
i don't understand why people have so many problems with ms. anthony, she's a really good teacher and a cool person in general.
Nobody knows what she is trying to teach in our class. Her grammar stuff is pretty confusing, my mom had to get a tutor for me because she can't explain anything. She expects from us more than she actually teaches and she's very controlling so it's hard to say anything because she will put you down. Worst teacher I have.
I don't know what half of you guys r saying. I just graduated harbord and i had her in grade eleven, and she was an awesome teacher. She's obviously not perfect, and has her moments when she'll snap on you if you do something dumb, but for her to get angry at you, you actually have to do something dumb and out of place. As long as you pay attention and listen in class, she'll be one of the best teachers you've ever had.
Really patient, accommodating, and willing to help. I don't get what people are saying, she'll respect you if you aren't doing anything dumb.
almost all of her evaluations are opinion based like presentations.. then she marks you so hard, and its impossible to debate the marks since its what she thought. I would understand her marking if she knew how to teach correctly
SUCH a hard marker, and I could understand that if she was a good teacher, but she isnt
ummmm...ye this teacher is so inconsistant and her marking is off the wall :S
she is hard and tends to have favourite students in her class
