Oh my god where do I even begin with Ms.Elia. She`s sweet and all but her teaching is all over the place and very boring. I didn't even pay attention in class or do the homework and I some how managed to get a C+ compared to my classmate who did the homework and took notes and came out with a C. She made us watch some movies near the end of the year and had discussions about them. She seems to be very adamant about incorporating drama into English.

What a joke. This teacher is an excellent example of why our school system is laughed at by those in studying in Europe, Asia, and Australia. And yet she continues to [poorly] teach, protected by her union. Pathetic.

She's not that bad, but quite disorganized, may lose work, and may be missing a mark on your term, but otherwise she's easier than some other English teachers and if you know what you are doing, you can get quite a good mark.

Awful teacher. Very messy, very unclear. She loses assignments and accuses us of never handing one in. Pointless acting sequences, even more pointless assignments. Confusing and unclear on writing and grammar concepts. Nice person, but should stick with teaching drama instead of English, which is actually of some importance here in Canada.

Where do I begin, In the beinning of the year she makes us act and talk and even films us acting. When she realizes that it's almost the end of the year, she crams 20 pages of language power each day. She's nice but can't teach. When she tries, everyone is sleeping. She doesn't even bother waking us up even though she she's us sleeping CLEARLY. and lastly her writing.......how did she become a ENGLISH teacher?
