Mrs Prest is a wonderful teacher who I've had for two years straight. In my experience, the students who claim she is "mean" or "harsh" just got a bad mark on their last common test.
Very knowledgable and is very willing to help you if you want to work and will help people who are performing badly improve. Kids who say she is strict are most likely delinquents, she isn't a mean person, merely doesn't want people wasting her own time and those who want to learn. Great teacher.
Has a master's degree, knows literature, doesn't suffer fools. Great year 11 or 12 teacher for a serious English student
She has been one of my teachers and I think she is dedicated to her students' learning and assists them in improving their work when they need. She was one of the best teachers I had in year 12.
I have not had her as a teacher, but she is currently my Year Level Coordinator. Enforces petty rules with great severity. Students either are afraid of her, or just try to ignore her. She is so strict and petty that many students break the rules in front of her just to rebel. Needs to learn some common sense.
