She has been one of yhere worst teachers I have ever had she is rude telling kids to quote Shut up . She rants every class about the literacy test and if you stand up to her she will target you. She dosent give great feedback she tells you what you did wrong not what you need to work on

Noted as one of the hardest marker in the school for a good reason. Classes are fun. But slow at the beginning of the year. Most people get o.k marks in the class some emotionally weak ones either drop out of cry after the first week. I suggest having her from Gr 9-11 NOT 12 or it may affect your chances. Great challenge of a teacher. If you make it out of her class with a alright mark.

Mrs Haygarth may be viewed as evil and is out to screw you out of a getting good marks but that is completely false. she may mark extremely hard but if you need/want a certain mark she will do everything in her power to get you that mark and her classes are hilarious. as long as you follow the guideline on assignment and pay attention in class she will never get mad at you. if you show initiative and ask how you can improve something she will even stay after school if you need help.

She is really knowledgeable! But with that said, she is really cruel. You ask her for help, and all she does is tell you what you did wrong. She also spends most of her time ranting, and is very hypercritical. She says that writing essays for an exam or test within two hours is pointless, yet makes you do exactly that. She is okay when it comes to editing, but if you need high grades.. Get Out of Her Class

Ms. Haygarth is really knowledgable and will teach you a lot. BUT! She is an insane marker, and expects you to have University level work in high school. So, if you have her in grades 9 or 10, great! You'll learn a lot. But, if you have her in grade 11 or 12 (where your marks matter a lot) I would switch out of her class.

lol about her editing. if you wanted something edited before you sent it off for a scholarship who would you want to edit it for you. the thing is that she actually shows you how to edit things yourself.

Very fair. some creative assignments (crest for KL and scene presentation). I also liked chapter charts instead of chapter questions. An interesting way to spend a July. I hated the heat!

She started me healthy essay writing, the poet's marketplace was probably one of my favourite projects I ever did, the magazine design project was very creative as well, good times in that class.

lots of laughs in 3U. I loved her comparison to Snakes on a Plane. Funny. I hope you teach gr 12. SHE IS TOUGH but that's what happens when someone treats us like we're adults, I guess.

she's a good teacher, but sometimes i think she is kind of unfair. she made me get a late slip because she didn't hear me say "here" when i said it loud and clear. that was REALLY RUDE!
