Boring and ineffective teacher, has an immense hatred of North Korea and feels the need to vocalize this, even when there is little relevance to the topic at hand. Questionable knowledge in her field. Also makes useless indirect points and focuses study in unneeded areas.

A really nice person, but not a great teacher. I don't like being mean about teachers since often they try really hard - but I'm fine about this because it seems like she doesn't try at all. We spent a whole double period (nearly 2 hours) in groups just brainstorming about film techniques. She also hardly knows anything about English - it's obviously not her passion at all. She also chooses the most generic, facile texts to study. Seems like she doesn't prepare lessons. Hmm.

Really great teacher. Super helpful. Other comments on here are most likely from people who aren't willing to actually engage with her. Have a conversation about what you're doing. You'll learn heaps. Those who have been rating her low because they failed probably failed for many more reasons than the teacher they got. Would be interesting to see a ratemystudents.com and how this and it could correlate.

I actually think she was an alright teacher, I had her twice and I passed both years,I think she was entertaing,shes so vacant,but not really,and its in a good way. Shes really quite smart,you just have to ask her questions. I think she is percived as a bad teacher because she never gets angry,so everybody just talks over her,I feel sorry for her,she always get the derelict students.

Mrs Carswell used to teach me, if thats what you could even call it!! i don't think teaching is the right chocie for her. Shes holding young students back and should be stoped. Basically i agree with the rest of the comments.
