A lot of people do not like Mrs.Pook, however she helped me out a ton with essay writing. I had her in grade 10 and 11, and it's because of her I understand Shakespeare. Son't be afraid to ask for help, she is always willing to help with anything you do not understand.
What an amazing teacher, always smiling!
Ms. Pook is a wonderful teacher. She prepares you very well for post-secondary education. She may have high expectations, but it is so worth taking her class because you will learn so much! She is fun, and light-hearted (and I was NOT one of her favorites).
not very underdstanding in a lot of situations. Plays favorites a lot as well. The students who were getting 70's and above, are either getting a C on everything, or an R. She doesn't really teach, she more or less expects the students to get it, and to do it her way and her way only. Although some may find her helpful and a great teacher, i disagree strongly...But; that's just my opinion..
Sure , she is popular for people not likeing her. Although I liked her . All of my friends said " no, no .. switch out her class NOW " because nobody gets along with her apparently ... She was decent to me , she complimented me on my honesty, and i never had a problem with her at all .. If you work , not be immature and annoying... then you are pretty much good to go!
Ms. Pook is an excellent teacher. She obviously knows her material and challenges her students to draw their own conclusions.
For that one who claimed 'impossible to claim a level 4 in her class' - For your information, pal, I'm one of them. I find Ms. Pook an inspiring teacher, can't wait to be in your class another year!!
This is a teacher that just doesn't get it. She is very self-centered. Her material and marking are tough and good for university preparation, but her teaching approach is actually very harmful.
Pook is headstrong & selfrighteous. But the bottom line is she does not teach. She expects the students to teach themselves. What they were told was a content test was not. No wonder low grades.
worst teacher I ever had, marks sooo hard and has favourites
she may be nice but she is way 2 in luv with shakespeare!
She completly ruined English for me. I am so happy that I dropped her class. She NEVER explained anything. I shake my fist at her.
I like that she's truthful and nose her stuff. 1st time I got it.
Try to dress more YOUR age, rather than like a teenager.
gr. 12 eng and now oac.... when will the nightmare end?!
Loved your class, even tho I think Macbeth is a dumb play!
Why don't you like answering the phone during class?!
Nice Lady... Tell's you exactly what you DON'T want to know about your work.
