Loves to pick favourites, and refuses to lower herself to the indignity of listening to or helping students who are not stars. Her attitude towards students seems to be geared to making sure her pets reach even greater heights (highest TEE scores, best university, whatever), but does not regard herself as having any professional duty towards non-High Distinction students. As others have said, she also tends to shout down and sneeringly belittle any interpretation that differs from her own.

her grasp of the nuances and inner workings of English Literature is outstanding. although a little hard to understand sometimes she is a hardworking and inspiring teacher.

Angela, what can I say. Debating - you win. However you do have a single flaw. That flaw is your desire to completely iron out emotion/arrogance. A touch of arrogance is needed every now and then. IShe is also quite a good teacher and is entheusiastic (probably over committed). She needs to learn to attack the year 8's more, as they are terrible at debating.

A dogmatic character at times but in the longhaul she can prove very helpful. Lit genius

No doubt she knows her subject but her personality and style of teaching didn't work for me...

Doesn't deserve the treatment of enduring the teaching of the horrific OBE Course of Study English course. She belongs with Lit students, in the ambience of Shakespeare, Elizabeth Jolley, the metaphysicals, and such and such.

I agree that sometimes on a text she knows really well, she will force upon you her opinions and interpretations, and criticize and shout you down if you have a slightly alternate theory or perception

Very nice and intelligent teacher. She has taught me a lot, but just make sure you don't have bad dreams about her! However, she doesn't finish her sentences.

A friendly teacher but if you try to do a "resistant reading" (normally encouraged in lit) that doesn't agree with her opinion, she'll give you a bad mark and tell you it's because of structure.
