It was a pleasure being in Ms. Olds' class. If it wasn't a pleasure for you, you are probably useless and weren't paying attention. Her knowledge of etymology is virtually unsurpassed...impressive! She taught me many, many things including where Martians come from. MS. OLDS RULES!!!

It was truly a delight to be in Ms. Olds' classroom. Her knowledge of etymology is virtually unparalleled. If you think she's too strict, it's probably because you are a useless jerk. MS. OLDS RULES!!!

She's awesome. I've learnt heaps this year and she's really flexible in her teaching methods, always trying to make things different. Okay so she is a bit strict, but only on bad days.

Was the best teacher I ever had. Super helpful when you wanted it, all you had to do was ask. The reason I decided to go into teaching. Brilliant as both an English and Economics teacher!

Ms Olds is a great english teacher. She is helpful, even though sometimes students don't appreciate her concern. Ms Olds can at times ramble and become sidetracked in class, although with the best intentions, and the rambles are always interesting! Ms Olds provides quality education unto her pupils. Her classes are very much enjoyed and appreciated.

Technically a good teacher but I don't agree with the way she teaches. Way to uptight for my good and trying to demand respect from me just makes me loose respect for her.

Hmmm...wasn't overly happy when I first got her, but she's not the grumpy-bum I thought she was! Watch out if you have her as a substitute teacher, as I’ve discovered she's only nice to people in her class! But if you're in her class she's super nice! Ms. Olds strives to see her students do well.

the only substitute teacher that has inspired me to do work! ever! has good work ethics and knows her stuff.. have had her for 3-4 different subjects, and interestingly she always seemed to know what she was talking about, almost impressicve at times! can be a bit of a pain at times but good teacher overall
