Numerous complaints against this teacher yet nothing gets done! Couldn’t name 10 people in year 12 that would want to be in her English class she only helps the people that are already gifted and by passes the weak. Never takes the time to help students improve and you will be lucky if you get any of your work back by the end of the year
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
Very smart lady
What you put into her class you will get out
Helped me a lot in English
I learnt SOO much in her class. Very good at what she does
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.
Very mean, and very strict. needs to find a better way to approach her students
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.
Whilst being in her class i honestly despised it more than anything but now that i've come to think about it she really did teach me quite alot.. despite how rude and grumpy she can sometimes be.
May be knowledgeable but needs to work with students more actively so that she is actually listened to.
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
Ms.mertz is tuff but the thing is she can really teach. i find she can be nice but then she can be really grouchy.
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.
