One of the best teachers in my time at Bundah. Her teaching style isn't exactly orthodox but I thoroughly enjoyed my time though I wasn't exactly brilliant at english. She wants people to have an opinion instead of just following along with the flock that's why she likes to poke fun at the students. TLDR: Don't act precious, have an opinion, enjoy the ride and you'll do fine.

Lynette is one of the best teachers I have ever had. When I initially was in her class I hated it and thought she was scary, as she often goes on rants and seems to get angry. But once I realised she is always joking and just looking for fun, I fell in love with her teaching style. She is so wise and kind. She really does care about her students and always makes class interesting. Lynette has made me want to be an English teacher so I can be like her when I grow up! Haha.

i don't really appreciate her comments and what she tells her class every lesson never really relates to the assesment piece..she also isn't a very fair marker.

Taught me for 2 years. She rants and singles people out (including me) because she wants them to push back and show a bit of character instead of whining later. Show nerve and interest and she's good.

She never seemed to have a nice thing to say. I respect that she's a real teacher and can teach. I just probably wouldn't go back to her class without being a girl...

Hilarious teacher. Being an arts/drama/music student, I was often the target of one of her rants - she is a stellar teacher with an amazing sense of humour.

Rants have direction and purpose. Mostly to make you think for yourself and not just go with those around you. Knows her stuff and really makes you understand the topic. Great teacher

Has a remarkable outlook on life, funny, controversial and truly inspiring at times. (Though sometimes contradictory). My only concern is she does not teach, not the curriculum anyway.

Always sparks interesting and controversial debates. Sure she might be a tad anorthodox but that's what I love about her, she never means to offend so no one should take anything she says to heart.

Such a good teacher, I almost considered taking a class in Women's Literature just because she was teaching it (and probably be the only male doing it). Really great teacher, not just for school.

I personally, have felt targetted by Lynette and find her rather cynical and sadistic. Strongly opinionated with some interesting, amazing views but awfully ignorant. Never, ever again. Not for me.

Stimulating atmosphere which challenges the way you think and reasons for it. The benefits of her classes are beyond any school system in the country. A rarity that deserves a bloody pay rise.

Her classes are more than a little daunting - the year elevens weren't sure if they should be more scared of her or Ms Zwongabani. But she has a very strong work ethic and supports all her students.

Lynette will argue with anyone who puts any view forth, and appear to hate everything and everyone. She will contradict herself innumerable times in her rants, yet..somehow.. walks away with humility.

Fantastic teacher, whereby she may not agree with your views but will respect you for having one. Very helpful and really serves to encourage students to work to the best of their ability.

A hard marker whose teaching style leaves something to be desired. I t could just be the class but she tended not to teach as much as I would like.
