Rachel purchas puts in indicidual effort with students, most of the people saying bad things about her are probably just people who she has given honest feedback too. keep being eccentric purchas you

She talks to much about her personal life and has favourites. She picks on ppl and wastes almost 1/2 the period groaning to us about her ex husband and how much she misses teaching her old school.

ms. purchas talks to much about her spiritual beliefs which doesn't help us learn, she picks on people. BUT, shes a very good teacher! despite those flaws.

I had a year of Ms Purchas as my form teacher and english teacher at another school. She lectured us daily about religion, spirituality, wisdom and such. None of this was very helpful. She picked on certain students and said that our class had a negative core, and that our class was basically horrible. When she actually taught us, we found that we didn't learn a lot. She constantly complained of stress and work to us and her teaching/organisation was unstructured. She can be unrealistic and preaching.

I don't believe it is professional to bring the subject of this website up in the classroom atmosphere. It makes some of the students uncomfortable when critiquing her teaching, when she lectures the class about how it upsets her.

Miss Purchas is a confident teacher who is honest and quick to judge. Has a good teaching technique but needs to stop thinking her students are out to get her. It would help if she would stop talking about her old school, otherwise a good teacher
