Great teacher if you want to learn, are interested in English or are in AP/Honours etc. Gave us lots and lots of material (mainly for reading) but didn't make me feel prepared enough for the actual AP exam and English 12 provincial.
She is a really great teacher, despite what I have heard from others since day 1. Of course, if all you care about is getting a good grade, then you might want to stay out of her class, because honestly she probably does not want you to be in it. However, if you feel genuinely responsible of getting a great education in high school, you should definitely take her class. I signed up for grade 10 honors right after ESL, and I just finished AP Eng 12 this year. And those are the best at Elgin.
As a student of one of her regular English classes, you probably won't have much fun. If you are, however, one of her AP or Honors 10 students, she is a great teacher, and will probably respect you a () lot more. She is a bit of a hard marker, but otherwise she's very good; just don't expect to get a good mark if you're planning on sitting back in class and not doing anything.
The best teacher at Elgin Park. She makes you have a love for English and actually prepares you for real life (aka University). She has a passion for her subject and the class is always entertaining, you do a variety of things and you will enjoy it. It maybe hard, but believe me, its worth it. A delight to have as a teacher, a true pleasure.
Great teacher, as long as your a good student. If you are a student who wants to learn English and perform well in university she is the #1 teacher for you. If you are a C- student who just wants to slack off for the entire semester then get ready to fail.
I personally think she is a good teacher, but she just doesn't know how to calm down and be nice and stop talking so much!!!
Ms. Rollins is a riot. She is the only English teacher that actually prepared me for university. She is not difficult at all as long as you do exactly what she says. She's also relatively easy if you do what she says.
Very condescending to students. Can teach the curriculum, but does so in an unorthodox and disrespectful fashion. thumbs down
Roillins was an awesome teacher, I had her for AP and she totally favoured our class. She really improved my writing skills and the class was really fun. A lot of the time we would have classroom debates and discussion randomly, it made the class seem like it was a university course or something. DONT BE HATIN ON ROLLINS
oh ms rollins, what a wierd teacher. we did a midsummer night's dream and listened to it on tape, she stopped it every freaking 20seconds and explained the part we just read and laughed at it..alright teacher, hard marker
shes strict, but she taught me everything i know in english, very down to earth
Facilitates awesome class discussion. Docks lots of marks for silly errors. Manages to teach the same student for 5 months but doens't know their name....
Isn't completely in the room when she teaches, but does alright
