She's horrible. She is un-necessarily strict, and often forgets when assesments are due. Although this is sometimes a good thing, she sometimes remembers last minute about it, usually when it involves memorizing something and presenting to the class. This often means that you forget everything after memorizing it half a term ago. And she hates students that don't like her class. I once was shouted at for having a shoe thrown at me. Go figure.

costa i think has problems with her memory - she can't remember anyone's names, she can't remember classes, what we are doing, when things are due. this is funny because if there is an assessment, the whole class often convinces her that she told us it was next week. a ppt pres that we were supposed to do early term 2 was pushed to the holidays and only three pepl didit. this combined with being really strict makes for wierd classes and only the really enthusiastic actually learn anythng.

Grace is the perfect teacher, compassionate, kind and intelligent. She is harsh with students in her compulsary classes because they generally lack care and application. She deserves far more praise than she is given.

her perfectionism is very annoying, i swear i had to re-write A DRAFT at least nine times, but on the occasion she smiles (if its the first time you have seen her smile it can be scary!), she nice though (i didn't expect a b!)

Her perfectionism and habit of ripping students' work into shreds in front of them, (if the slightest bit not to her satisfaction; sometimes reducing them to tears), is a turn off. She is so small.. yet so knowledgeable.

Grace, the italian lass with the bouncing hair. She is quite talkative especially about the Italian Soccer team, & is generally friendly..although she has her bad days.

What can I say? She seemed to like me, but she constantly handed out a stream of infringments and incident slips to heaps of other students in my class! To me, she wasn't a very good teacher.

She constantly tells us to "LOOK UP YOUR NOTES!!" and when we ask questions, she says "Im sorry I can't help you!" Come to think of it she's never answered ANY questions; I wonder if she's Italian!!!

Ms Costa is great. Wait until you do Italian in year 10+. She does have her moments, but people just don't appreciate her. She's just a little demanding and... eccentric. But she's really hilarious.
