When I had her as an English teacher (back in 1993) I was surprised that she took it in stride that a student yelled "shut up!!" to her after she told that student words along the lines of "If you're not going to listen(or participate) in class you're welcome to leave." She still did nothing or at least said nothing after that same student opened the classroom door and slammed it closed in such a way that I thought that the door would break off its hinges but instead it didn't close well.
I had Mrs.Duncan for level 2 and level 3, I actually found her to be nicer with the level 3 class. That was over 10 yrs ago thou.
a very good teacher, but there is one point she needs to work on.. STOP PICKING FAVORITES! DUNCAN! preps arnt the only people in your classroom!
ms duncan is always a good laugh if you dont take her cynical jokes too seriously. Shes a hard marker, shouldnt be teaching high school, maybe university.
A great teacher, definatly gets you ready for university english classes. Not an easy class but worth taking.
