Ms Nasmyth is such a great teacher!! She's absolutely hilarious in class, she is strict yet flexible and very kind and understanding too. Words cannot describe how privileged I am to have her as an English teacher. She helps you get around confusing internals and offers to read your work whenever you need her to. She is so dedicated and passionate in the subject and that is really conveyed in her teaching. If you have her you will be sussed!!

Ms Nasmyth was the best English teacher ever! She was always extremely well prepared, and involved everybody in the class to participate and learn. She had a great sense of humour, which made lessons fun and exciting. Her teaching style is amazing, she gets through to you, goes out of her way to explain things that you don't quite understand, makes you feel confident and want to come out of your comfort zone. She marks really well, and gives proper feedback so that you know where to improve :)

Ms Nasmyth was always polarising - but I loved her for that. She was passionate and inspired us, whether it was in debating/english/journalism. 10 years after I finished high school I'm still in awe o

She used to scare me half to death, but looking back i respect her so much, and how much she related to each student, i know she's scary at the best of times, but give her a chance, she's lovely tbh.

Going to her classes is the high-light of the school day. Classes are always like a big discussion. Best english teacher EVER, made me love, love the subject. She's not scary as such - but may come accross as a bit blunt at times... All part of the charm
