Many people think that Ms Mertz is a harsh teacher and for many years I believed their words, however when I actually got her as a teacher she wasn't bad as I expected. Yes, the work load may be a bit heavier than other classes but it is her strictness that allows the students to put effort into English and improve. She is reasonable if you are a good student, please take the time to listen to what she say. You sow what you reap.

She is very good at providing advice for her students on a one-on-one basis, and helped a lot over the year when trying to work out what to do with essays

By far the best English teacher I have had at killester. If you actually take the time to listen to her and take on board what she is saying you will succeed. She truly does want the best for her students so everyone with a preconceived idea needs to step back and actually be open minded. Very knowledgable and I always knew that if I had a problem with anything then she would be the one teacher I could go to.

I want my essays back!! I never got feedback. And 40mins of a lesson is spent on lecturing us, on how disappointed she is in students. but not telling us for what reason. basically likes putting students down without knowing it

People misunderstand Ms. Mertz, Deep inside she really does want to help her students. Although she shows it in a different way by being strict.

I think that Ms Mertz has a lot to offer but she needs to find a better method to teacher so that students will like her more and hence are more likely to learn

I think Mz.Mertz deserves a lot more than that. I've learnt a lot from her and there's more to her than what meets the eye.
