She is one of the best teachers I have ever had. She always makes sure to get to know her students and is very kind. She is always willing to help even if you don't make an effort in class. She explains things very clearly and always gives students sufficient questions to practice to make sure they understand the concepts she is teaching. The only thing that could be improved is discipline however this is not usually a big issue. Overall she's a great teacher 10/10.
Every year she complains to her students that they are useless because she has the worst pass rates in almost the whole school.. this happens every year to everyone of her class'. she can't teach. her class is boring and she doesn't seem to care. everyone in the yr13 physics class that was in her class in yr12 struggled. half of the class had no idea about most of the basics and the other half that did know had Mr Anderson for Yr12 Physics (he's a great teacher) Get out of her class at anycost
Miss Land made physics for me very difficult. She would copy a textbook onto the board word for word without explaining anything about a subject. She covered the bare minimum and sent you to other students if you needed help and then returned to her desk to mess around on her phone whilst the classroom all struggled to understand how to solve a problem. She can not understand why all the pass rates of her classes are so low where as other classes going over the same topics are doing so well.
She has a good knowledge of the stuff but should she have been made HOD when her pass rates for all NCEA classes are shocking to down right abismal. The year I went through only 4 people passed chemistry and in physics the year before very few people passed which meant that two classes where thined down to a single class in the next year due to her shoddy teaching styles. All she does is throw paper at you and expect you to pass.
I like Ms Land...I think she has an amazing knowledge of Science...She just doesnt know how to present or project ehr knowledge
