Only tells you what she really wants after the assignment is handed in. Too psychology-oriented, not enough literature
Peggy is an incredible teacher if you are willing to work hard and if you are open-minded. Essays/exams are not easy so you need to be willing to work hard and really follow guidelines for a good mark. There is TONS of work but if you see her for help and really try your hardest, you are guaranteed to do well. Book tests are an easy pass if you read and really focus/take notes. She is a teacher I couldn't help but love.
Peggy is one of the most knowledgeable teachers I have ever encountered. She's a tough marker and makes her class work hard. She picks books that are usually difficult and don't appeal to all high schoolers. Although, she puts in her own free time to help or guide any student who comes to her, which, in my experience, made her class one worth being in.
Very knowledgeable, very inspiring teacher.
Peggy is a very hard working teacher who is very knowledgeable in the art of ancient psychoanalysis. That being said she makes me feel very self conscious about doing/saying anything both inside and outside of her class room because I am afraid that she will psychoanalyze me. She creeps inside of my head eavesdropping on all of my very personal and private thoughts. I suggest staying completely detached from your emotions within the bounds of her classroom.
oh peggy!! what can i say.... such a hard marker but teaches me soo much! great teacher overall and my entire year of grade 11 would not be the same! LOVE YOU PEGGY
Peggy is the best teacher I've ever had. She's taught me so much and I always look forward to going to her class. She is helpful, understanding and she truly cares about you. If you work hard, it all pays off. Her class is interesting, fun and an all around pleasure. Being in her class is one of the highlights of my high school experience. Peggy, if you see this I want to say thank you for everything you've done, you are truly incredible. I'm going to miss you.
Peggy is the best teacher I have ever had.She puts an incredible amount of effort into her teaching and goes far beyond what she has teach. Her class is interesting whether or not you agree with the psychological concepts. So helpful, nice and funny!
Peggy is an incredible teacher. Whether you agree or not with her psychological views is futile, so get over it. In the real world agreeing with a teacher is unnecessary. If you are open minded and respectful to what she wants you to include it will be so much more enjoyable. She is a helpful teacher who explains thoroughly and offers private extra help. If you take proper notes IN CLASS when she's talking you're essays are a piece of cake! Still use her writing outlines in CEGEP, golden!
Her class is so interesting! Her infiltration of psychology into english class is really cool and unique, and I personally enjoy finding the philosophical undercurrent of novels through the literary elements she teaches us (repeated images, parallel stories, metaphors..etc) She gives a lot of work at once, which could be stressing, but still, her class is the best. PS. Peggy, if you ever read this, I'm sorry if I made 1,000 grammatical errors!
most people are scared of peggy for no reason. she tells you exactly what she wants and if you listen and do what she asks theres no reason you won't do well. just don't be lazy. she's the best
TO ALL STUDENTS WHO THINK SHE IS A GENIUS GOD WHO KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT LIFE (regarding the "psychology" sh!t), YOU CANT BE MORE WRONG: Her theories are discredited by real doctors around the world,
Idon't say this about many teachers, but she's changed my life. Not only has she taught me important concepts that i will use for the rest of my educational journey and carry on with me through my car
She helped me improve my writing by a considerable amount, shes funny, nice and extremely helpful! she does give a lot of work so make sure not to put it off! listen in class and ull have a great year
amazing teacher, she's a genius. hardest class in the world.
She's a toughy - to say the least - but a very bright woman. If you thought you were a good english student, wait until you enter her class. You may be proven correct, ordegraded.haha,but great anyway
i hate this site, because its a very superfcial way of talking about people, but peggy is incredibly inspiring!
hard class which ruined my high school experience overall but useful learning skills for university.
I love peggy! Because of her, I now know that I want to go into psychology. Such an interesting class, she's the best!
Very dedicated, reliable and approachable. Is a bit conceited, assigns too much work and imposes political beliefs. Classes are interesting and very fast paced. Definitely improved my writing skills.
Worst teacher in the entire school. Ruined my high school experience and overall opinion of Bialik. Everything she teaches is useless when you get to cegep. Word of advice I suggest you all take.
i have been having difficulties in english all my life.thanks to you peggy i learned how to write an actually essay properly without any grammatical errors. thank you so much i appreciate it. very hard but good
I love Peggy. She's incredibly intelligent and a great teacher, though teaches at a high level, so be careful and take lots of notes. It all pays off in the end though, and she can really help you improve your writing skills.
Peggy is one of the best teachers I have ever had. The work is challenging but it really pays off in the end because your writing improves so much. She is also energetic, funny and her class is never boring.
Very challenging class, but Peggy is an excelent teacher. My writing has improved exponentially this year. If I don't get her again next year, I will be extremely dissapointed.
Peggy is very intelligent, and explains well. The course is very challenging, and interesting. My only quirk is that we do way too much analyzing of stories, and not enough discussion and thinking.
it's the only class worth going to. you want a class where you actually think....it's a class where the themes in a story aren't given to you. if you cant handle it at first...she'll help you
She's a good teacher, but her workload is just really, really hard at times.
Peggy is the best teacher I've ever had. Her introduction of psychology into the English course helped me learn more about myself and how to look at things differently.
she really is the best!! shes a hard marker but verry helpful
PEGGY IS THE BESt! She has taught me so much. I am telling you, you are incrediby lucky to have her as a teacher! I have never learnt so much in my life. It is challenging but it is so worth it!
She's amaaaazing. She encourages everyone to perform their absolute best and widens students' knowledge of many interesting sunbjects.
One must appreciate how hard this woman works. Even tho i will never do well in this class (since i am english disabled) i will always appreciate how much she cares... shes' amazin
Peggy Hoffman is a very good teacher, and will always take extra time to help you after class if you're having trouble. However someimtes her assignments are very unclear and hard.
Peggy is a nice and helpfu. She's tar's favourite teacher ans what she teaches can be applied to all areas of life. I personally think her work and subjects are waaaaay too hard
I love you!...I've never learned so much in one class about a variety of things before! She really gives you an awareness of the outside world.
She's a nice person, but she doesn't understand that some people can't grasp these hard psychology concepts!!!!!!!!!
Peggy is not just a teacher, she's also a friend. You can actually trust her and tell her everything. But hey, Peg, I can never read your handwriting.
Peggy, you are the best english teacher in the entire world! I love you!
Peg is the best teacher ever. She helped me a lot this year and I hope I'll have her for English next year.
doesnt consider all the other subjects that students have to do homework for.
Lets personal feelings interfere with teaching, plays favorites
im in cegep and peggy's class prepares you for a guaranteed A
i had her last year and she was a very good teacher but was a very hard marker
her unusual style helps to make learning more interesting
Her quirkiness matches mine, never had a finer teacher
quarky humour that makes class interesting. writing skills improve completely!
My writing improved so much after being in her class for the year.
