I encourage you to give McCarthy's class a try even if you're not sure if theatre is for you. I still remember things that I learned from her, things that have made me a better person as well as a better student.

One of the most dedicated and hard working teachers I've ever had. She consistently challenges you to be better and improve. I loved having her and would recommend taking her drama or theatre class for a new learning experience and a chance to discover your interests.

Rhonda McCarthy is one of the most brilliant people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She goes above and beyond in order to provide her students with the most well-rounded education. She doesn't just challenge you intellectually, but she challenges you to be the best version of yourself. She also doesn't throw info at you, but she will find a way to have us realize it on our own resulting in a memorable lesson we can apply to our lives. I owe a lot of the good in my character to her.

Carth is one of the most nurturing and caring teacher I have ever met. She pushed me to become a better performer and a better person. During my two/three years with her, she became a strong mother figure in my life. I can't thank her enough for all of the advice and help she has given me. If you get her you will definitely have a good time and enjoy the time that you have with her. She's hilarious, caring and the most amazing teacher you will ever have.

No she doesn't pick favourites. She makes friends with the students, treats them as intellectual equals who can both learn from each other. She takes teaching past what is expected of her to a place where knowledge is something to be prized above all else. Yes her lessons can be difficult in he sense that she requires you to think, to own an original thought. In fact she actively encourages it. McCarthy looks at teaching unlike any other teacher i've had. She wants you to take something away from the lesson, she wants you to come out of it not only learning something new, but having the ability and mindset to apply it to your own situations and thoughts. To surmise, McCarthy is not only a teacher but a mentor and I'm honoured to have been one of her pupils.

I couldn't continue drama due to scheduling issues, but when I was in the class I loved it! She's very passionate! People say she picks "favourites" but everyone in the school knows them simply as the "drama kids" and chose to spend their time there.

Ms. McCarthy (in my opinion) is completely under valued in my school's community. She's an AMAZING teacher, as she consistently makes sure that every student has the attention and help that they need to succeed to their fullest.

BEST TEACHER YOU WILL EVER HAVE! She is so passionate about her job and will ultimately make you passionate about the arts. She is the funniest person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and she is incredibly inspiring. She will push you because she knows your potential but I promise she will make it fun! I have never had a teacher like her and I am forever glad I was in her class. She is so WISE and she knows you sometimes better than you know yourself! She's simply amazing.

She makes an effort to know her students, which is somewhat unusual but generally appreciated. She connects with some students better than others which is why she is often accused of playing favorites, but she tries to give everyone the love and attention they need. Knowing her students allows her to give them the job that will most help both the production and their own personal growth. She throws them into the crucible and oftentimes, it is exactly what they need.
