I have talked to my kid, asking 'how was school?' He says it's been great until last period where she blabs on about shit that is so irrelevant to the present. Complete hypocrite I tell you. She puts this suffocating mold on students to be the best and compares her students to her a team, saying 'Oh, my netball A team could score a goal in 7 seconds from the other side of the court'. Is she trying destroy a students confidence and credibility to feel good for themselves.
Ms Dorricott is very friendly if you are a perfect student, she is hard on the people who won't listen but a good teacher and improves your fitness and in class behavior a lot.
She is good at her job and i understand she knows a lot about Physical education but she really needs to remember that we are still young and we are allowed to laugh and have fun!
And also the lectures are not necessary about crap we don't even need or do!
Ms Dorricott is a ok teacher sometimes, most of the time she is talking about how much work we don't do, but this is because she doesn't be quite and won't let us get on with our work.
I was a little on the chubby side, but I played sports, asked her questions about fitness and for advise and she was SUPER HELPFUL!! We saw eye to eye which was really cool. However, when I challenged one of her opinions in health, that changed and she resented me for the rest of the year...she'll like you if you're like her
Confusing and not easy to work with
I've only ever been told off by her and I am not even in her class. She seems to be on the lookout to tell you off and she never congratulates you for anything - she just points out the bad stuff.
Although sometimes can be a little grouchy, she is actually a great teacher!
Very smart and nice.
But if you get on her bad side you are in for different ride.
She can be helpful, if your interested in what she's interested in, but she takes her sport far to seriously
Super uncomfortable to ask her questions about health when she takes them out of line and assumes that you have problems, when really you're just curious. But sometimes she can be helpful. Sometimes.
spends most of the pe lesson yelling at us for not getting anything done wen she never gives us a chance to do anythinig coz she won't...be quiet
most of the time shes one of ma fav teachers... shes actually nice and yeah basically respect gets respect...she CAN be nice
She gave be achieved in my multistage fitness when i am 1 of da fastest in ma class. She can b fine though. Just have 2 respect her nd she will respect u
I am sure Ms Dorricott is a fine teacher. It is the english teachers of those who have submitted responses that are not doing their job. Newlands College students need a lesson in spelling.
shez the first p.e teacher out of all of them to actually teach me something. u respect her and she will respect u
Spots wrong unifrom a mile away and has supersonic hearing. Has a look that can shut u up just like that.But she actually really cares about her class and was awesome in health studies.Teaches respect
yea, she can be strict!! but shes also really caring if you give her a chance!! so if you sop mocking her and give her a chance, you'll see a different side of her
I hope Miss Dorricott remembers the people that she put down and made feel not as important as they should, we wont forget that i wish she doesn't aswell, its called Karma.
To grouchy always pulling us up bout our uniform always demands respect when she never gives us the respect sooo yeah i dont like the lady!
ppl always say thats shes not nice and all dat, but shes fine just dnt dis-respect her and she will be nice to u and give anything a go.
A good teacher yes, but needs to lay off on the lectures a little. She keeps demanding respect... but she won't receive any until we gain some from her. It is a two way street folks!
She over reacts over the littlist thing and give you the longest lecture you could got
she is a very good teacher... ppl say stuff about her but dats wat ppl always do they say stuff... respect her n u wil gain her respect back... its simple
i dnt lyk hr so mch @ the mo, she totally mokd me infront of a class. ok, i wasn't suppost 2 b in there, she was tryin 2 teach a class n i was disruptin her lesson, n talkin loudly, bt still.....
She should stop expecting people to have the attidue of famous New Zealand athletes, we are who we are and are trying our best. It would be nice if she didn't pull us up for our uniform all the time.
shes nice if you get on the right side of her early... misbehave and she cn mke ur lyfe hell... nyce 2 me heh heh
you can mock her as much as you want but lets admit it the woman is consistent and a great teacher! she knows her stuff
I think she needs to change her attidude towards some students.
awsome netball coach, although we hardly ever win or won she pushed us and made us exced our own expectations
i know i was an absolute "pain in the proverbial" to Ms Dorricott... but she pushed me hard, i hated it then but i would thank her now, but she would probably put me on uniform detention first.
