good teacher in the way it's easy to understand her - but she needs to lighten up when it comes to discipline.

She can teach and she can discipline...not many teachers can do both competently, but Miss Donaldson can so for that i am grateful.

Only the second day in her class this year, it seems everyone including me has respect for her already. Very easy to understand and willing to help. If you want to learn, you will.

It must be hard teaching a boring subject like maths to a bunch of people who have no interest in it. Teachers have to be strict at the start, to get respect.

miss donaldson was a good teacher. her manner towards people can be pretty rude though and she makes you feel very inferior. we arent all perfect and cant always pick things up first off as you may have been able to. i felt you rushed through things a bit to quickly to be able to grasp it but in saying that you got me through 4th form maths. just relax a bit and stop making people feel inferior you arent the best thing around.

Often disgrunted, I find that if you don't know what you're doing she's quite patronising. I have also noticed that she sets her opinions of people's behaviour and work ethic based on rare negative occurences.

This teacher hates me! Well that's how I feel when she's around. She is rude, condecending and picks on some students (like me), even though I get consistently good marks in her class. I also feel like I can't ask questions without her looking down on me for it.
