alike most teachers, tries to keep up with the times by bringing up keywords such as trans people, gun violence and will give trigger warnings when watching something, I really don't like it how teachers do this and WHS is one of the most notorious to have this trait in the staff however she does not jam it down your throat like others, other than that she is calm and does her job like she should and she does it quite well.
One word- phenomenal and just a legend she knows her stuff and wish i could go back and do it all again!!!
Miss was actually so hilarious! her comebacks were priceless! She talked a lot which could be annoying, esp in movies, but she was actually a really nice teacher so long as you didn't get on her bad side. Miss is a lot better than people think; y'all need to give her a chance before judging her.
I think Ms Poata is a great teacher and she has gained an unfair rep! extremely helpful and really into what she teaches.
Miss Poata is a great teacher who has helped me to get my NCEA credits and she really cares about her subject.
Very helpful was able to enjoy English and learn lots. Maybe the people who didn't learn anything are just to dumb understand English, they can't blame the teacher for there incompetence!
Didnt learn a thing all year. Made me not want to come to school on the day with double english
I think Miss Poata is unlike any other teacher I have ever had!! But shes reallly helpful and doesnt deserve a bad name :)
she can not controll the class at all and is way to noisy
i had a really amazing year in english with ms poata! cheers!
ms Poata is awesome teacher. Her classes are great and if u ask for help she really goes all out
ms poata is a real cool teacher!! she always helps out!! if u dont want 2 learn she will still try and teach u. go ms poata woop woop!
I really looked forward to her classes because they were interesting.
I found this teacher to be sensitive and creative. She is really interested in alternative ways of thinking and learning. Doesn't put up with kids who disrupt classes. Good on her!
Jane is a very good teacher, she is a great woman, caring and makes great lessons. she is an over all great teacher i only think the best of Jane!!
