Sigh I cringe when I remember the days I had to sit in that freezing, draughty classroom and listen to her ramble on. One time she talked the whole period and just before the bell rang, she had set us on some work. You're not allowed to talk, have your own opinion, have your phone sitting on your desk, be casual, use slang in her class or address her as anything but "Mrs. Thwaites". Oh and I got a not achieved for using colloquial language in a formal essay I didnt know was formal.
Very good teacher! Thoroughly enjoyed her sarcasm towards several of my classmates...very funny and amusing...
Mrs Thwaites is a gr8 teacher. Really knows wat shez talking about..
Madame Thwaites taught me for French and I was my favourite French Teacher!
I had Mrs Thwaites as an English and Form teacher this year and I really believe she thoroughly prepared us for externals, as she always studied texts to great depths and made us take down extensive notes. I also adore her witty remarks such as 'It's manners that oil the wheels of civilisation.' And 'Did you just WAIL at that poor child?!', even if I was on her 'Top Four Habitually Late' list. Oh and who could forget 'don't speak out of turn!' LOL =D. She is absolutely hilarious!
Mrs Thwaites is hilarious. She is always on edge and flustered and fussing about everything like my mother. She doesn't like radical thinking and finds a lot of things and behaviour shocking, but she is a good and enthusiastic english teacher who is both amusing and disapproving at the same time.
haha shes a great form teacher and yells at this chick for butting in. its hilarious!!!!!
Once got in trouble for calling me blunt in a school report, She was cool and i was her favourite :D
Shes tough on juniours cos u guys are annoying, great year 12 english teacher, does not stuff around with irrelevant curriculum.
shes my french teacher and shes cool. i love the way she gets annoyed @ the book thing and the way she makes us sing the stupid songs in the book. shes tough on the ppl who deserve it
she is a cool french teacher and i love her sarcasm its so funny, shes all flustered but its whats nice about her. she definitely is a really good teacher.
Extremly sarcastic woman.Talks down to students in year 9 and 10.HAve heard good things about her from senior students though. Quitte an agressive woman
Haha yeah does have favourites but thats alright if you are one.
Likes to get the work done, which is helpful. She softened up a bit after noting a wee attitude problem
Scary towards misbehaving year 9s and 10s, but fantastic English classes in the upper levels. Make the most of it!
