Ms Butler is one of the top English teachers at Riccarton High. She explains things really well, but since we have entered NCEA she expects us to be more independent and ask less questions. She is so enthusiastic all the time, even in the mornings! She is such a lovely lady, one of the best teachers at Riccarton High.

This teacher is a menace. Her stock tactic to get most students in her class on side and 'engaged' is to find the one most lacking in self esteem and bully them remorselessly in front of their peer group. There is a schadenfreud aspect to her vindictive character that has no place in the classroom. She thinks that engaging students with such means is acceptable. This teacher is the single worst I experienced in 5 years of secondary school and a further 5 of tertiary. She should be reviewed.

I honestly think she is the best english teacher at RHS. She can be quite insulting and a bit OTT but I think it is better that she has so much passion than to be boring. Once you get to know her she is lovely.

She's a great teacher, very enthusiastic about her subject, especially Shakespeare, which makes her an excellent teacher. She's really helped me in English this year, and I look forward to each class, especially Shakespeare. She can be a little over the top sometimes, and she does make some pretty harsh comments in front of the class, but sometimes you just have to toughen up. Awesome teacher
