didn't enjoy her teaching at all - would have improved my german better with another teacher, but can't deny that she prepared us the best for the exam.

She's a great teacher, some think she's a bit pedantic but really, that's only because she knows what is right for her students. She is very knowledgeable and literally knows everything. She can go off on tangents sometimes but it's usually interesting to listen to. If you are good at the subject you will understand and thrive in her class.

She's decent.... Said no one ever. She spends a lesson on one reading comprehension and retells the same anecdotes at least 10 times throughout the year. Waste of time. Have to do things yourself. That being said she's quite knowledgeable and knows her stuff well.

First year with her (Year 12). People played her old to be cold and heartless so I thought I was in for it because my German isn't really top notch. In fact, she is quite the contrary. Very knowledgeable as you would expect since she is the head of LOTE. I'm glad to had an experienced teacher for my final year. She didn't know me before this year but she at least took the effort to remember my name (unlike other teachers I've known). It means she cares. I hope to get an A or A with her.

Fantastic teacher. Can be a bit cold to start with but once you get going she can be one of the most helpful and caring teachers at the school
