This is my first year at westmount and I'm 99% sure that I'm going to carry over in her class. She's made my first year at highschool very stressful and do not plan taking any of her classes again. She gave us 3 units a week before exams, a project for those 3 units and a 10 paragraph culminating a week before exams and expects us to finish...? She does not explain things very well and sometimes makes me feel kind of stupid.

mrs. mckague made me hate westmount she's rude and judgemental when i have questions she rolls her eyes a lot at students and sighs when anyone has a question. she picks on certain students and continues to pick on them for the entire semester. and she also has a favourite student. she takes so long to teach one unit we had to cut the course early because she clearly doesn't know how to teach. she also never gives us work periods every day is a lesson. she made me hate my grade 9 year. i'm done.

Seems nice but is very bland and doesn't have much perisnality. It takes her forever to do a lesion probably the reason why so many of her students carry over. She's okay. A lot of the work makes no sense but she tries to clairify.

She's a pretty awesome teacher over all, but I must admit that a lot of people said bad things about her. Maybe cuz they hated the course and not the teacher... Anyways, the exam was so easy because it was OPEN BOOK. 96% woot

She seems awkward at first and maybe a little impersonal, but I've had some good conversations with her. :) She's also a good teacher, and a fair marker.

She's really nice and helpful, her lessons were brutal to write down but helpful. Shows way more emotion when you're visiting and not actually in her class.

I peer tutored for her class when i was in grade 11, at first it was really awkward, but then she suddenly let up. She was one of the best teachers i have ever had. I learned a lot from her. I have heard people say she has no emotion, but i have made her laugh, i don't see what these people are talking about.

Once she understood that I actually could do some of the work I found she helped me a lot more.. she needs to lighten up a bit though! I actually liked science for once

Ms. McKague is obviously EXTREMELY knowledgeable about her subjects, but is very unhelpful as a teacher. She's very shy so this makes it hard for her to communicate, often to the detriment to the students. She needs to explain why she gives the marks she
