Absolutely horrible experience in her class. Her tests are quite easy, but if you make mistakes, she gets very angry and loses her patience and temper extremely easily. She's knowledgeable and her teaching is effective, but she constantly makes students feel uncomfortable and belittles them. You can never feel safe to go to her for help. I know she means well and is strict because she wants her students to learn, but the atmosphere she makes for the class is :/ dropping french because of her.
This entry is continuation of the one below. I accidentally misheard her directions. She rolled her eyes at me, looked at the class, and they laughed at me in unison. She remarked that I had "scratch writing". Afterwards, she asks me to write on the board. I tell her I was unsure of the answer. I did not finish the sentence, yet she says "If you're not serious, then fine I'll do it!" Then she asks me AGAIN to present the answer and she firmly says "No that's wrong!" in front of the entire class
Okay I believe we can all agree that she can sometimes be intimidating, but honestly, she teaches SO INCREDIBLY well. She is hard on us because she wants us to learn. She is a very good teacher and just wants us all to learn for our own best.
She's very nice if you get to know her. She is strict because she wants you to learn but she is very helpful.
was thinking of switching out this year but ms. thorpe convinced me to stay in french. I was lost in the beginning of the year because I missed a few classes but she helped me catch up and gives me lots of help and resources.
the worst. She hates everybody and she is distracting during tests and exams. She has the worst personality and she lowers people's mark because she does not like them. She is so lazy and criticizes everything
She's actually okay at teaching.. personality-wise however, she's HORRIBLE. She's moody, she picks on random people.. once in grade 9 she yelled at someone for sneezing during a test. She's just plain rude sometimes. I have no idea why I took French again. I wanted to do it for all four years but because of her, i'm dropping it next year. I can't wait for this year to end so I don't have to face her again.. and if I do in the halls or whatever, i'll just ignore her.
mrs thorpe goes wayyyyyyyyyyy to fast teaching and gives way too much homework, i dont really get her lessons
She can be quite moody, but she's probably the best French teacher at the Abbey. She knows what she's doing, stays on track, and makes sure you understand!
AWESOME! I feel bad for her cause she sometimes looks upset:( and needs cheering up but she can be nice!
MISS whhyyy did you have to leave and whhyyy did we have to get stuck with Murray? We miss you!!!
MISS YOU NEED TO TAKE OTHER PEOPLE INTO CONSIDERATION AND STOP OPENING THE WINDOWS!!
i dont know why you guys think shes a bad teacher cuz shes honestly one of the best ive ever had and im glad this is my 3rd yr gettin her =D ur the best miss!!!!
good teacher i lean alot from u thanks:) even tho i hate freanch with a passion... i am learning
She's always getting mad for the strangest reasons, and she has a thing about keeping the windows open!!! It's really cold!!!
srry mrs...but I HATE FRENCH its sooo confusing .....n dont be expecting me not to fail...n trust me this is the only year im taking french ...next year Italian
do not take switch of class personally, there really wasnt enoguh physical space and the other class is so much easier. very friendly but strict.thx for ski tip
Shes nicer to the people who are failing than the people who aren't. Its like she wants people to fail.
lets put it this way...next year i'm taking spanish 4 sure
Why does she expect so much from us? We're CORE french, not EXTENDED!
She tends to pick on ppl and when she is annoyed...look out
confusing, hard, sometimes mean, picks on people, and we get too much homework!
great individual, very helpful, so funny! a pleasure to be in her class
im too scared to ask her questions..she's very intimidating
