Shes the sweetest and shes really helpful but her assignment calendar is completely disorganized and so confusing (things placed multiple times, last minute changes, wrong dates- people showed up to class not knowing we had a test because she had a different date written and she wouldnt postpone). If you listen well and take notes and read carefully youll do well since she makes the material interesting

She's a pretty average teacher but if you don't listen, you'll miss out on a few things but nothing you can't can't up when studying on your own. Most people would say she's strict but she's just like a not so chill high school teacher. So comparing to the other teachers in school who are mostly laid back, she seems pretty strict. The work in class isn't as hard as it seems.

Don't be surprised if you get 40% on your first writing assignment... She just does that to make sure you do stuff the way she wants it in the future.. Follow the guidelines and pay attention in class.. She gives out many answers for her tests while she talks in order to reward those who are listening.. Hard class if you are in Science. The workload is quite heavy and expect a test/quiz every week.. Other than that just don't get upset over low marks at first.. Try to understand what she wants..

Honestly one of the worst teachers I've ever had. I wanted to jump out the window every time I entered her class. Not only is she a tough grader (you lose points for no reason at all), but the way she explains things is extremely boring, and she's so rude whenever you ask her to explain something. I regret not dropping her class. Avoid at all costs. But if you have to take her, BUY THE TEXTBOOK. She wrote it herself, and automatically dislikes you if you buy it late.

She comes off ok at first, but she snaps, she doesn't help a lot and doesn't make an effort to understand your answer she wants EXACTLY what shes looking for. She really does NOT prepare you enough for exams nor does she give sufficient amount of time for the amount of questions that need to be answered. The reviews here aren't wrong! Avoid her if you can. If she doesn't like you she will pick on you. Very stressful, dunno why she's a teacher.

Do not take her! Her tests were on material that we did not learn and she was not very good at explaining. She is rude and not understanding. Really did not enjoy her class.

DO NOT TAKE HER. She favors students! Not only does she not explain mistakes on essays but her points system for corrections is illogical. Avoid taking her at all costs!! My first language is French and I took her in 103 (strongest)...

She's a nice person, however, she is very demanding. French is my first language and I still struggled. She gives a lot of work and does not necessarily prepare us enough for her exams. Very exigeant!

All I can say is that she doesn't help you at all and she talks alot about history of stuff. She gives you an essay and you got only 2 hours to do.Not enough time to correct it. soo don't take her

Good teacher. Very strict on grammar. Easy marker for oral presentations. Make sure you follow her guidelines 100% or you could have nasty suprises. Do the work and you'll do well.
