A person always has that one teacher who has changed them in some way for the better, and Val Cootes did that for me - hard, staunch but also very understanding and encouraging. Her love for creativity and embracing the differences in people made me feel more comfortable in my own skin. I will never forget my year as her student, and her enthusiasm!
Threatens to the dance of the seven veils. A stripping dance YUK! and is really mean and shouts at you had her as relief forr a whole term. Hated coming to school
I had her as a reliever for a week. she seemed to teach us a lot but was way to strict and kind of intimidating.
lol she yells alot and makes us work hard but she cares about the kids an she's funny
she was in a way the best and simultaneously the worst teacher ive ver had. really good at making u have self discipline. but definitely has said things in class that were totally inapropriate and offensive. i only realised a while ago that the "dance of the 7 veils" is a strip dance. like anyone wants to see her do that
I don't know anyone who likes her. She hits people with a feather.
I was really surprised at the positive comments, so many people say they don't like her! Anyway, Mrs Cootes is AWESOME I love her she's so cool and really explains things well. Great dancer ;)
Fantastic teacher - amzing depth of knowledge and really cares about every kid she teaches
hahaha funny teacher but needs to undastand dat sumtymes we NEED to wear makeup l0l
She is a really cool techer i really enjoyed being in her class and she is really fair to all students.
Mrs Cootes is realy cool, keeps you on your toes and keeps you paying attention with her dance of the 7 veils :)
great teacher. tought me alought - especially about not getting away with missing school just coz of sports!!!. she's an awesome teacher and if you have a chance get there as a teacher!
Some people think that youre realy strict but your actualy a good teacher
