A significant amount of the class was spent watching Ted talks completely unrelated to the course work. She knows almost nothing about the subject she's teaching, redirecting any questions about the subject to google. Literally wanted to end my own life after taking her class.
Ms. Ward is a rather ill-mannered teacher who regularly disrespects students and will make it very clear if she does not like a student, often calling them out in front of the class in an attempt to embarrass them.
When asked for assistance, she often cannot identify the issue, and the teaching itself is lackluster. She will post some code on the screen, then send students off while she reads the news on her computer.
Overall, I am disappointed with Ms. Ward, just a terrible teacher.
Not very helpful, boring and just takes everything out of the textbook...
She doesn't know what she's doing most of the time, not helpful at all, I think I knew more than her going into the course. That, and she scares me.
She doesn't really have a good grasp on what she is teaching. Can be nice and approchable, but most times I'd rather go to a peer in class. Made me hate programming =(
grade 11 law was really lame...i learneed nothing :(
If you need help in something, you ask her - she comes over and helps (ie. tells you whats wrong with it, fixes the ONE problem) and walks away. Uhh, hello?? I needed help with more then THAT. Not helpful at ALL.
