In my honest opinion, Amanda doesnt teach at all. She photocopies her old as book with dated content and expects us to do it with no clear instuction or objective. We struggle din our first internal and had to rely on other teachers. This was a "teach-yourself-topic" and I'm glad I even passed.

She can't explain. She's always angry, to be honest. I think she should quit this school and go live on an island.

Mrs Ladds was my favourite teacher. I am from China and found her to be well spoken and polite and very helpful too. Mrs Ladds is kind and respectful. I saw some year 13 students being rude to her in a corridor and making fun of her medical problems. To make things worse, I saw a horrible teacher laugh at Mrs Ladds. That is not acceptable and is ignorant. She works hard is a kind person and knows her subject very well.

If I was ever confused on anything, she would just ignore my request for help and say, "You can find out in your own time" Or just give me 'a look' without helping... It made it difficult to continue with the lesson without understanding the basics...
