Ms Colcott is a wonderful, if not underrated, Lit teacher. She is extremely knowledgeable, focuses on the more "complex" or unique points when analysing texts, and provides an abundance of useful materials on her moodle page. I would say though that her classes feel more like a Uni lecture than they do a normal high school class, and you really need to know the text pretty well to understand the materials she discusses, so be prepared. That said, she really pushes you to do well

Miss Colcott was my teacher last year and she was one of the most competent and helpful teacher's I have ever had. She taught me a lot of useful methods in analysis and breaking down texts. She's also very kind and understanding. A lot of people might not like her because she's quite strict but it's a good kind of strict and it motivates a lot of people

Colcott has an extraordinary ability to 'translate' complex literary ideas to us mere mortal students. She is completely willing to give up her lunches and stay after school to help anyone who needs it. Will give you a slightly hard time when it comes to marks but it's all worth so much more :) Brilliant teacher. There's a reason she consistently has one of the highest achieving classes every single year.

Colcott is a good teacher. She tells us exactly what is expected of us in exams and provides texts that often directly answers questions in CATs. If you pay attention to what she's saying, she practically gives you everything you'll need for a full essay on the text.

She's a hard marker but she's very good at what she does. She often puts things in a way that can be easily understood by the students and doesn't drone on and on about the boring stuff. She pushes us hard so that we do well and is overall a very useful teacher.

Very knowledgable, sometimes it is hard to keep up with her. Her lessons are well organised, she gives a lot of extra material that you can use to get high marks. She makes you work hard though, she is a fair marker and is willing to stay in during breaks to help you. Overall great teacher and nice person.

Loved her. Turned my world of lit upside-down (in a good way). If you're willing to learn, she'll give you everything you'll need to ace the work. She's a harsh marker, but she's the best Lit teacher
