Miss laird is the nicest teacher you could come across when there was a fire in the boys toilets in a different block we were out of class at the time and I didn't have have my bag the fire alarms were going off she let me into the class to get my bag I was so happy. She is a good social studies teacher, her instructions are really clear and she always has a big smile on her face and says hello. I am looking forward to having you as a social studies teacher for the rest of the year Miss Laird

A nice person, but had a hard time understanding why she would teach us certain things. Does have favourites and is biased when marking. Has a hard time controlling the class (even top band), and will not give a sustainable amount of work for one hour. Will teach the basic curriculum but barely teaches anything to get her classes to an Excellence standard.

Nikki tends to give our top band class a word find that we complete in 10 minutes, yet wait half and hour anyway. she can be good humored, but majority of the time everything with her is all business. she is warming to having a BYOD class, but is not yet using devices as much as the class would like. she tends to be away quite often, and shows up late to class continuously. despite all that she does teach us the material we need to know to pass exams with flying colors, but that only. overall :)

pretty good teacher, apart from the time she taught us about government for about a week and a half, and spent about four weeks teaching about North Korea, when the whole test was on government and had nothing about North Korea in it.

She is a nice teacher, until some prick stirs her up then she turns into the incredible hulk in a skinnier female form. Her accent is very strong and sometimes hard to understand, but I guess it doesn

her lessons are well planned and it is easy to understand her set work, but sometimes her control of the class can be lost. she shouldnt be afraid to whip out a few blue slips every now and again

The basic course is taught and she does not go over the important details that will be required to pass both internal and external exams. The class controled 90% of the time.

i learnt nothing from her, she made it extremely difficult to learn as she couldnt control the class, and no-one knew what she was talking about half the time.

Excellent teacher, very friendly and keeps her classes well-controlled. Nikki seems be very receptive of new methods to teach her classes, and laughs when the students do. She seems to plan her lessons well in advance and pushes the lesson plan through.
