The fact that someone like Mrs MacFie is even allowed to call themselves a teacher is a blatant insult to the fundamental principles of education. She's knowledgeable in her field, but she's not fit to be a teacher. She favors female students to the point where a male student can only do well if he has an older sister who she already taught. Unless you're one of the students she favors, she won't help you- she'll even go out of her way to humiliate you.

Easily one of my favourite teachers. She is a difficult marker, but makes you work for the mark you receive which will be better off for you in the end. As long as you complete your homework, you will be set up for a good grade, as she is a very knowledgeable teacher who cares about her students' success. I recently had her for SNC2D, and because of the enjoyment and reward that i received from her class, I've decided to take physics next year. Highly Recommend!

SUCH an awesome teacher, I loved doing her labs, and some of the projects we had to do were super fun. The tests were somewhat hard, but getting a cue card to write formulae really helped out. Taking her physics course in grade 12 more than prepared me for university physics courses :)

MacFie is very knowledgeable and willing to help students, however, she tends to pick favourites. It's impossible to stay caught up in her class (unless you enjoy physics a lot or are gifted). Her exams were difficult and she was a hard marker. I lost my passion for science because her insecurities trickled into her teaching (she didn't do well enough in university to do something with physics- teaching wasn't her first career choice- and she certainly let us know about it!).

Very easy marker! Helps you understand and love science! People say she's mean but she really isn't! She acts as a senior teacher and like an university professor!

Everyone says they don't like her, but that's just because they don't like physics and don't do their homework and they blame their bad marks on the teacher. She is an amazing teacher and gives lots of fun experiments that teach you a lot about the topic. She might not always seem like it, but she cares a lot for her students and most people don't realize the hard work she puts in to always be available for extra help whenever kids might need it. One of my favourite teachers!

Amazingly intelligent woman. Truly knows what she is talking about. However, she is a cold, rude and insecure person. She has the potential to be the best teacher at JOA, but sadly lets her own lif

She's an awesome teacher and pushes her students, which is what a teacher should do. She really prepares you for uni. which is even harder than H.S.!!

A very fair, strict, BUT flexible teacher. She is the perfect balance of a teacher. A hilarious sense of humour, but very professional. And truly, a very nice, and sincere person.

MacFie is a good teacher. I consider myself a hard working student who will work for a mark, yet, MacFie takes hard marking to a new whole level...
