she is an awesome teacher, i am trying to see whta see teaches in the other years to make sure i get her to boost my uni makrs. i agree that some of the history fair things may be unclear but if you just listen in class, then you will understand things a lot better. she is very good at telling you what the exams or none of the exams are like, gr11 you do an essay and thats all. i dont want to leave just because i know the profs at uni wont be as grteat as she is. hope you are reading this ms.bak
Great teacher! She really knows what she is teaching and is very passionate about it. I think history is boring-- but Mrs. Baker make it more interesting for me. She is really nice and fair.
Mostly up to snuff. Very passionate about history, but was unclear about some assignments when outlining them.
Some of the things she taught us were very good. I found her to be unorganized and unclear over some of the History Fair projects.
I found that I had a lot of mixed feelings about her teaching style. I liked how she had all these programs and simulations as part of the lesson plan but she tended to focus on the roaring twenties and leave out interesting parts like WWII. Overall, a fairly decent teacher and I learned a lot. Thanks for the milkshakes Mrs. Baker!
Her course was more stimulating, more useful, and of better quality, than many U. of T. history and politics courses. Quite simply, an outstanding teacher -- to which other teachers should aspire, and, better still, a first rate human being. If I send my children to Leaside, I would do what I could to have her teach them. Thorough, invigorating, knowledgeable, decent, and abundantly fair. As another teacher once said of her, if you get an "A", you've earned it. Inspired me on to law. Simply lovely.
She is very knowledgeable but tends to go on and on. I like her teaching methods but find that she doesn't inform us on what she is expecting to see on the assignment until the day before.
Best teacher I ever had. She knew was what important in terms of essay writing skills and she was so consistent. I used her strategies through university and I now teach them to my own students!
Great teacher - really knows her history and has lots of fun activities. Never a dull moment in her class!
Not too bad. She isn't clear when explaining assignments or giving due dates but there are some interesting assignments in she gives.
out of all the teachers at LHS, I think she's one of the best!!! She teaches through so many methods! It's AWESOME!!!
Ms. Baker is very helpful and a very fair marker. She uses interesting and unique assignments like seminars and role playing that are effective for learning about history.
brutal. boring. dull. makes up words. avoid at all costs. weird assignments instead of tests and essays. weird. makes up words to sound smart, you can do well but it still sucks
has the most annoying monotone voice i have ever had the misfortune of listening to! 2 words:...EARLY RETIREMENT!!
One of my best teachers ever. I'll never forget Ms. Baker and OAC Modern Western Civ!!!
