Ms. Densford is an awesome teacher. She is incredible and amazing with her deep knowledge of English literature. She will drill your grammar but if you read Easywriter and really strive to be perfect, you will move on to communicating with her about the meat of literature which is the themes, motifs, messages, symbols... I really love her and she is very fair. Be polite to her and respect her. She genuinely cares about her students and is a very kind lady. Her class will make you fall in love.
A great teacher overall. Make sure your grammar is up to speed because she will point out every single error you show, she's like a machine. Try not to be late in her class because she will publicly shame you. Also, if you have a fieldtrip and you need her to sign something, be ready for a bad mood because she absolutely despises it. Aside from that, pay attention in her class and you should be fine.
she is from oklahoma she told me which explains her accent
she is very helpful and encouraging but on the down side even if you do not have a superb mark she will say that you will do fine which is not always true
LOL the other day i went to talk to her about marks she was like i cannot tell you that just yet you are only in year one but i can approve that you will get your diploma and go to the university you want and marry the woman of your dreams
She's a lovely lady. Very thorough with her lectures. Helped me a lot with grammar and syntax. She has a really good taste for literature. I have her to thank for my love for Shakespeare. Overall, my two years of classes with her were great.
She is old and should retire. Stubborn and doesn't return any work. Gives bad marks without any justification. Should have taken AP English and gotten a 5/5. She just screws you over.
"YOU NEED TO COVER YOUR ANSWERS", this same line was repeated to me about 4 times during my Math Provincial. Like no, It's relatively covered and I need to write my answer down.
she's a great teacher for IB english. She can be picky, but the information she provides is very helpful. I'm learning something new every class. She also knows a lot about English and can make profound connections. It's hard to see how you're doing though since she hands things back around the end of term.
One of the few lecturers at SWC I enjoyed. Extremely nice teacher, wonderful sarcasm. Says the most hilarious things. Predicted my IB mark highly accurately. Rarely got any assignments back so I still have doubts about my English ability. Loquacious, as she describes herself (accurately) Leave a good first impression, and you're in for an enjoyable ride.
She is by far one of the laziest teachers I've met. She acts as if she has done so much for us, she talks in circles and never gives back work. She's really sweet...but a teacher? Come on...
a pathetic excuse of a teacher. Most undeserving of her responsibility to teach. gives no helpful advice, assess students arbitrarily based on impressions. The only teacher for whom no amount of hard work can help your grades, because she assigns them without even CONSIDERING your actual abilities. Horrid. justs plain horrid. I'd rather have a teacher 10x harder who actually marks things than her, who conjures grades from thin air.
She has a very sarcastic dry humour that is quite entertaining. Especially when she discreetly talks about other teachers/noisypeople out in the halls/students etc. It is a question how she decides on our marks...it just kind of comes out of thin air...
I have her for english, nice but takes too long to pass out paper, and assignments. Explaining things takes wayy to long.
Um.. first thing comes to mind is mother hen. and then forgetfulness. Very very nice (when the class doesn't angry her).. and when she err tries to raise her voice, it's still like a library-voice, just more sharp. Very hilarious heh. Very few assignments.. err.. she's nice.. and.. okay-helpful (sometimes she doesn't get the point of your question). but.. where do our marks come from!?! is the big question.
Had her in IB english and I have to agree with some of the comments. She's a nice teacher and relatively easy to get along with. She does play favourites though and regardless of exam / assignment grades (if she even marks them) your report grades are drawn from hats labeled "favourites", "average", and "hate with a passion".
The worst teacher i have ever had. She has a blatant bias in marks towards her favourite students, she doesn't ever teach, and she never marks anything of importance. Gives A to favorites and lower marks to anyone else.
somewhat easy but not overly. doesn't hand back a lot of stuff but i personally think the marks she gives for the report cards are pretty fair. it's nice how she finds a lot of contest opportunities for her students even though most of us never do a single one. she can be really unhelpful when it comes to misplacing a handout or forgetting some minor thing. otherwise she's an okay teacher.
Ms.Densford is a kind and devoted teacher who spends a lot of time speaking with her students! I'm glad to have had her as a teacher in the past!
i thought she was a really good english teacher! her style is different, that's true (assignments aren't handed back, very few tests), but i believe most of our marks are given to us based on class participation and the quality of our input. plus she's a really sweet old lady who really cares about her students. i'm going to definitely miss her, but i'm glad to have had her teach me IB english as she prepped us well for exams =)
8 years after graduating, I still think that she really cares about giving her students all of their chances to learn. I find it hard to read that some people think that she judges people too easily. Oh, well, I guess life holds some surprises for them! But be careful, because in your statements, you too fall into the trap of judging unfairly. An image is something difficult to understand, and very easy to ruin.
Ms Densford takes up approximately half an hour at the beginning of each class to take care of attendance and other "administrivia." Assignments are rarely, if ever, returned. Rarely any homework. Nice teacher though, but sometimes disorganized and always compresses the course schedule near the end of the year.
Her favouritism is digustingly obvious and she holds grudges. One time we had to write questions for this assignment I did less than half so accordingly I got less than 50%. Then 4 kids all copyed off eachother for that assignment and they got 50% each OMG. I should have said something but I was in Grade 8 and afraid of teachers o_0. Otherwise she's fairly clear and somewhat easy
disorganised sometimes and doesnt hand things back but is soooo sweet and nice i <3 her so much :)
Ms. D is the best teacher I ever had. She introduced me Tom Stoppard's work! I appreciate all she did for me and her dedication to students is examplary! Best IB teacher ever!
WHATT?? ppl LIKE her?? Densford plays blatant favorites; she will love or hate a person no matter what, 4no good reason. NEVER HANDS BACK, so instead of my A i get a C unexplained
Hahah Oh ms. densford. You make reading Atwood absolutely 'memorable'. =P IBers <3 you!
Really nice, it's a shame I won't have her as a teacher next year.
SUCH A GOOD TEACHER. Interesting. Incredibly nice and good-humoured. Very accepting of everyone's ideas. Encourages discussion. Extremely good at finding and explaining obscure themes and symbols. Thank you so much Mrs Densford!
Hard to describe...one of those old time teachers!!! Really caring and really sweet, her classes flow smoothly and she explains a lot! She likes to talk a lot, but its often good stuff!! :D The only thing is......we never get our stuff back!!! :(
She's very nice, though i hope she'll prepare us for IB exam. and i heard she never gives stuff back so marks appear magically.. i'm beginning to believe that
Haha, she's so evil..she makes us watch boring videos and gives us really hard tests, but overall, she's cool!
Clear because she repeats everything 10 times.. but leaves out other important info. needs to mark and hand things back.. dont know what the mistakes are
WE LOVE YOU MS. DENSFORD!!!!!! Always so sweet & kind (except when certain students annoy her). Very intelligent and interesting studies. Preps well for exams.
I really learned A LOT from her. She really makes sure to explain everything (though admittedly, sometimes in TOO much detail). Overall, fantastic teacher.
it is thru your class that i started to love english, u showed me things that I would've never seen in a novel. THANK U!
easy and nice, but never marks your assignments... but term marks somehow appear
I LUV MS. DENSFORD!! she's probably the best eng teacher i've ever gotten.
Fantastic teacher! She truly cares that everyone does well.
she's ok sometimes...can get annoying, but most of the time ok...HUSH PEOPLE!! and if you're grade 8's: HUSH CHILDREN!!
She's ok... gets annoyed quite a bit lol, but oh wells.. she's not bad, just do the work not perfect, but well, and your good, i think =]
I love ms.Densford, as a past student i've always respected her as a teacher!
I think she's funny, just that u do all your works then u can get a good mark
funny, nice, interesting prj ideas, helpful, unorganized though, sumtimes borin
a great teacher, funny and i love it when she goes hush people
Very friendly and great teacher. (and gives good candies!).
