Ms. McGuckin obviously knows what she's doing, but can't communicate it very well. She's very passionate about chemistry and will take the time to help you, but class lessons aren't the greatest and you have to do a lot of reading on your own because of it.
She is very, very passionate about science for sure. She once told us she has a whole body experience every time she looks at the periodic table. But she's hilarious. Always entertaining. Her lessons are interactive and she uses multiple methods of teaching to reach out to all her students. Her tests are usually more difficult than class work, but she's generous with marking them so I guess it compensates. Amazing teacher though. I would want her to be my best friend
She's a good person, passionate about what she is teaching, and she knows her stuff. I understand that we should study from the textbook, but I think it is too much of her to make us go through many chapters a day. I really don't like how she spends couple seconds on each powerpoint slide. Plus, I need to memorize every example in the book, which is very annoying. She's not a hateable teacher as she is very positive, energetic and chill, but gotta be honest, her teaching sucks.
She's an awesome teacher! Super insightful and passionate about what she does. She does teach quickly and expects students to learn from the textbook individually, but she goes through power-points and lectures about all of the topics later to clear up any confusion. Her tests and exams can be really difficult, but it's only because she wants you to have a deep understanding of the concepts.
She was very nice & enthusiastic but she just did not teach and that was reflected in everyones mark
she has a huge passion for science. she danced and went preached about biology until she was breathless. one time we were all deabting about phenotypes and she started crying because she was so proud. best class if you pay attention. tests hard tho.
awesome teacher... picky with spelling and get lost a lot but she makes it fun with her craziness. super smart too. good chemistry teacher ;)
Such a good teacher. Keeps the class interested. Very funny and knows her stuff. Always an exciting class. Easy marker and gives fair tests
shes really good and she actually makes science fun.
I love this teacher! She is full of energy and just loves science! She makes science soooooo fun. I wish she was my teacher in everything :)
Never gave up on students. Always full of energy, made class exciting. By far the best teacher Ive had.
WOW. amazing. made grade 9 the best year ever...ENERGY at a MAXIMUM...the best science teacher in...Bishop Allen..lol!GO McGUCKIN! wooohoo!
Lets u hand things in over and over till u get it right, has a TON of energy, but not very helpful or clear on what she's teaching.
very rude and annoying to people not even in her class
Great teacher. Makes class very interesting and exciting!
