Literally, best teacher and person generally I had the pleasure of being taught by at Galen. If it were not for having being taught by Mrs. Fiddes in year 12 I would probably be stuck in Wangaratta with some pleb job not with a house and kickass job in Melbourne.
A blessing in disguise.....she had 100 per cent pass rate for HSC English in 1988....parents pay tens of thousands in grammar schools these days for that calibre of teaching....
Mrs Fiddes is a very hard working lady who goes out of her way to assist students' needs. She has exceptional classroom management, enabling all to learn without interruption.
Mrs Fiddes - stern but effective in her methods for all but the very rebellious. She nurtured those who had potential and attempted to improve those who didn't display it. Old school discipline.
