Had her in grade 9, and I hated her, she taught us nothing, the biggest project we did involved a brochure about going to the moon (mostly colouring). She seemed to know a lot but didn't actually teach any of it in class; she also had very strong opinions about many things (don't mention disney to her) and talks WAY to much about her personal life. Also hours of answering questions from the english textbook, so easy class, but very boring.
Love her! She's amazing at what she does.
Like no structure or concrete learning for lit, but conferencing with her is soo helpful and she really helps you to do your best work. No deadlines. She truly cares, which makes all the difference in the world. Will help with
Ok first of I have the assumption that this website is just used to let students know if they can go to class or not with the optional "attendance" section and "Cool" option, which isn't the point of school. But anyway, I was in her lit class and she was such a caring and kind individual. She took your interests and made them her own. I'll never have another teacher like her. By being in her class, I became my own independent person. My memories of lit class will always stay thanks to her. :)
Mrs. Barkley was an amazing teacher. After being in a class with her you learn to be an open minded individual. Don't argue with her in class because you'll lose almost every time. She is honestly one of the very few teachers who actually cares about her students.
Just tell her that your stressed out and she will extent all of your due dates!
she's an amazing, confident teacher. her confidence really works in her favour because it makes her seem so cool, and most students really want to impress cool teachers. especially english teachers. i noticed i worked really hard in her course because i wanted her to like me. more teachers should be like her.
She's great. Cares about your writing and about you.
Helped with essays a lot. Overall not bad of a teacher
She is amazing. Probably the most intellegent person I know. She's very helpful, and has great ideas to help improve my writing. She's very inspiring. She could be a life coach.
WONDERFUL!! understanding, approachable, caring, SOOO knowledgeable and actually GOOD at passing that info along in an understandable way. most definitely the best teacher i've ever had...ever.
she had a lot of anger issues..yells at ppl in the hall not to disturb the class when she is doing so by screaming her head off...face goes red...doesnt help in moving the course along.
Ms. Barkley was a great influence, a passionate teacher, and showed students a great deal of respect. She WAS working on her... Masters/PhD? Marge, why are you still at Ottawa high schools?!
She's a great teacher to have for Grade 9 - she really eases you into the Lit program. Inspirational, funny, and very caring. When you leave her class, though - some of that changes.
she was inspirational and caring, but took way too long to get projects abck to us. and when you leave her class, watch out! wonderful woman, though.
An amazing teacher who really sticks up for her students, but when you leave her class watch out! You become...the 'other kids' and you are no longer under her protective arm!
Don't run with scissors. That is what I learned in her class, among other very helpful things. Go LitKids!
very kind teacher, but had a little bit of an edge. i loved her completely off-topic lectures. very inspirational to be in her class!
Kinda favours certain people over others, but overall, she's a super awesome teacher and I have learned much from her.
teaches a very good class (lit), she knows her stuff!
ive had her for a few weeks in lit, and she is a hip lady. the most fair and reasonable teacher ever, but slightly intimidating if youre a guy..
Absolutely the most inspirational teacher I have ever had, always ready to help and to set you on the right path.
very tough marker, but she's really funny and nice which is ...good.
Very hard marker, but her discussions are awesome. she always makes me think really deeply in her class!
i thought ms barkley was pretty kool! high expectations though, being a lit teacher an all!
I used to go to Sir Wil. Margie was my favorite teacher and her class rocked... I envy all who are in her class.
from a grad - most bestest english teacher ever. inspring, helpful and human.
We love you Mrs. Barkley!!!! You stressed quality over quantity and always had a minute to talk.
I am from another school. Best teacher of all time!!!
