Intimidating but she's alright, just make sure to run the damn laps or you're running twice the amount. Also, just do the pushups when she's looking, her warmups are legendary but pretty easy to cheat.

Mean at first, but really nice and funny. Make sure to get on her good side though... and try your hardest, because she'll know if you don't. Also, be prepared to do a lot of laps. But she's really funny, good teacher.

Such a funny teacher. Does not take crap from anybody. Everyone thinks shes mean cause of the hard warm ups and shouting but when you get in her class you see shes actually really nice and kinda does it as a joke. If you make a good first impression she'll be nice to you but if you are an idiot your kinda stuffed

Mrs Lane is an average teacher. At first she seems mean, with the long warm ups and loud shouting, but then she lightens up when she finds out your athletic ability. In my experience, I was not very sporty and it showed in fitness testing, but then she told me her story and that motivated me into becoming fit and healthy. A bit rough around the edges, but overall a solid teacher.

If you are any good at sport or physical activity, say hello to your best friend. If not, you will have a hard time. But, either way she improves you as a sportman/woman and in the end that's what really matters. I like to imagine her as the drum teacher from Whiplash. Only a woman. More intimidating and a more creative use of profanity. Great teacher though.

Ms Lane is actually a good teacher. All the people that say she is bad have never had her as a teacher. She is really good and you will actually improve your fitness if she is your teacher. She is really funny and understanding. 10/10.

Her warm ups are deadly. Nuff said. But besides that, as long as you're a good kid and try your best, she's pre chill and cool. Loves to tell stories, sing, dance and hella funny.

She's a fantastic person with a fabulous sense of humor. She loves to sing and tell her own life stories... a lot, but they're usually quite hilarious. She's helpful and has a clear voice, and she usually knows what she's talking about. She's tough in PE, but she knows the students' limits and so she accommodates.

Love her so much. Tells us about herself a lot. But her warmups are pretty intense. Is so funny, mostly by not trying. Never gives us homework for health, but if she does DO IT. Coz she gives out detentions like they're nothing. If you get to know her and become her friend, she'll never do anything bad to you. Lover her singing.

she made fun of me for not knowing what the beep test was in year 8. I was new and had come from England where we don't have that. She called me unfit ( i wasnt) and yelled at me for getting lost on my first day, in front of 6 classes.

Her classes are very tiring. During her warm ups, if one person stops, she makes everyone start again. However, if she notices the class is tired, she counts faster. She is nicer to you if you are fit or in ALP, especially if you are a girl. She talks a lot about her family and stories from the past. In addition, she makes a lot of jokes (some get very repetitive). She is a good health teacher as lots of interesting events have happened in her life.

Ms Lane is a unique character. You either hate her or love her. She reminds me of Jane Lynch in a way. One to one conversations with her aren't so bad as long as you aren't wearing a sports uniform without 'authority'.

Funny, but a reminder that a warm up is not ten laps.

i like her, once youve been in her class for the second year she doesn tell you off as much, she sometimes pulls off funny jokes and she doesnt tell you off unless your being silly, which is natural for all teachers to do
