Ms Renaud was my performance music teacher. Although i'm not the most talented student in her class she still helped me and gave me tips for improvement as well as encouragement. I hope I get her this year for music!
My favorite music teacher. =) So incredibly helpful when it comes to preparing for uni's and always maintains a good balance between professionalism and approachability. An excellent conductor as well!!! I feel sorry for her that lots of people tend to dislike her, I have talked to lots of people who dislike her and there reasons are utterly ridiculous and unfair. I will always appreciate the massive amounts of help she has given me. =)
Well, she can be in a really good mood one day, and be real nice and stuff, but if you catch her on a bad day WATCH OUT!!!!!! :o
Ahhhh shes alright had her for 4 years, excellent teacher for NCEA but for just being a normal teacher god that woman has issues when it comes to being nice...... ill never forget one boy in our class who forgot an assignment in his locker and he was lyk ill hand it in in 5 minutes and she was lyk noooooo u will learn not to forget in my classes ever again!!! poor boy almost failed NCEA music cus of her lol and yes she does have her favourites luckily i was one of them for a while however was to argueish!!
Yeah, Jordan's right!!! Ha...oh should I mention names? Oh well, I LOVE Ms Renaud. She is HILARIOUS, and extremely nice and helpful :) She's an amazing musician and I love watching her conducting improve :) I'm so sad that I'll only get one more year of her at Burnside! Rock on Helen!!!!
I had her for Year 10 and she inspired me to continue with Music (which I dropped in Yr11). But I admit she can have her favourites (thankfully I wasn't hated, YAY!), but she is faaar less bias than the rest of the music teachers. She is easier to listen to and approachable and will give you good advice even if it feels like you're being punished! She is very caring too - like when I got dumped she gave me the after-school rehearsal off!! Lol. She is talented, enthusiastic and dedicated which is fantastic.
She definitely has her favourites. I was unfortunate to get on the wrong side of her, it was not good for a couple of years. But treat her with respect and she'll treat you with respect. Do NOT quit smp, she will hate you after that. Is unprofessional outside of the classroom, politics etc.
unfortunately she plays favourites and hurts alot of students' feelings.i know plenty of people who have been treated badly by her and the music department.those of you who say"what's wrong with her she's cool"are obviously the 1s who have been favoured.lucky you.as for some, that is not the case.
She is a awsome teacher, never had her but she sounds awsome. Good stuff
She is unfair and plays favourites. But shes not that bad.
she thinks music is the only important subject but its useless and she is pompous and she keeps telling me 2 tuck in my shirt when i don't want to
I don't know what you have against Ms Renaud. She is the (wo)man! Do your work and she will recognise it. EXCUSE ME she is fantastic at a lot of different instruments and a lot more reassuring than MR Bainbridge. Good job Ms Renaud all of my class reckon you rock!
unfair and doesn't have a life outside of music. being a teacher is important but this teacher needs to learn to talk to people like humans not animals. she can get good results at times.
I think she's really nice XD and i don't even take music! I'm in the orchestra though~ and she's really devoted!
learnt the most in this subject from ms Renaud then any other subject with any other teacher ever, what is wrong with all of you?!? if u year 9 u dont no what you're talking about because in yr 9 music is subject you must take, even if u dont like music, you cant blame the fact you never liked music on your teacher for 1 year
she plays favs bt shes alrite at concert band and stuff
helen is awesome, really helpfull teacher and knows whats shes on about, all the year 9's who write comment after comment don't know what they are on about. they need to grow up a little.
sometimes bery unfair..... but high qualified music teacher...great to have her though...
how can anyone call her bad is understanding to her perfomance class as in da ocncert band gives da flute some awful parts but is no mr stevenson who hates dem
Quite a good teacher. A bit strict but knows what she's talkin about. She can be funny at times
im not very good at music, but she helps me. really nice. likes to have a laugh. i was scared of her at the start of the year but then she lightened up as the year went on. really skilled in music.
i dont no y people don't like her either. shes really nice, sometimes funny and makes sure u won't fail music no matter how much u suck. she has a seating plan though...
I really don't get y peple don't lyk her!? She's a gr8 techa nd is really helpful!!! She can be strict but she is really fun.
Man i had her 4 relieving 1 day and she wos soo boring and just stood at the front and talked and i wus bored
I dont get why people think she's so bad! She's been great the whole time I've been here, helpful clear teaching and ready to give up her time. Couldn't ask for a better music & orchestra teacher
I think she's gotten a bad rap, she can be harsh, but she really is a wonderful teacher who cares about her class. She doesn't play favourites, but I still talk to her sometimes and she' a really lovely woman. Her teaching style is easy to follow and I found her very helpful when I couldn't understand something from class.
