Had her in year 9 social studies a few years back. Learning in that class she came across as intimidating and old fashioned. She knew how to teach but she also didn't make me very comfortable either. Every class we would stand for her and each lesson was a different greeting, kinda cool learning new greetings like that, but this was repetitive, boring and got quickly annoying. Being in a class of ill-mannered yr 9 boys was like chalk and cheese. I had a hard time learning until I shifted streams

The whole lesson resulted in having a seating plan changed, she couldn't control the class. She also went on about greenpeace feeding us useless information. Our class would only get started about 30 minutes after the bell, leaving 20 minutes in which she taught us barely anything, she was very opinionated. I did not enjoy social studies with her, she was a pain as it was frustrating as we wanted to learn. I'm sure many classmates can agree with me..

A good teacher who is oft misunderstood. She teaches from a good perspective in social studies (ie: she preaches what she knows is right) but has problems relating this to a room full of young men..

"Contour Lines" and "I tried to tell you with my eyes" are the most famous quotes of hers. when i had her she would wait untill the class was undercontrol bfore doing any teaching. She can teach quite well with the class undercontroll, but is a bit old and needs to retire soon

Very good teacher if given the chance. Most students are just too immature and stupid to understand her. Does need to get a handle on the class, but I think she just doesn't bother with people who aren't trying to learn. Will not give up on you if you are willing to put the effort in. Thanks Miss

I've never been in her class, but from what i can gather as a student, people never give her a chance and this reflects on the lower streamed classes she seems to teach the majority of the time.
