You ask her a simple question and she goes a roundabout way to answer it. After 10 mins, no one is really sure what she just spoke about. But she's a nice and fun teacher, classes are cruisy

Love her! She makes an effort to try and make English fun for her students, that something we should appreciate. Sometimes talkes too much, but what English teacher doesn't.

Wow it must just be me but, I found her really hard to understand and vindictive. She really put me off english and made me not want to take it again even though it used to be my favorite subject. Also all of her texts were so depressing and hard to relate too.

She's a great teacher! She's one of the teachers that make the subject fun - you don't feel like you're learning, just having fun. She doesn't get angry if you do the work like you should. Love Mrs Jakes!!!

She's a great teacher although she got a bit cranky at us towards the end but that might be because she had us for two years. I love her room and the fact that she's lovely and chats with you.
