She does not deserve the horrible rep she has, but she is NOT a good teacher. She crosses boundaries that shouldn't be crossed, insulting students in front of a class for their personalities or person

I dreaded having her because she has a bad rep, but she ended up being one of the best teachers I've had at Strath Haven. She helped me to develop the skill to write the essays that helped me get into

Ms. Farrell gets a bad rep, but she's one of the best teachers I've ever had. People don't like her because she expects a lot out of her students and is pretty critical, but usually? She was right.

Easy class, if youre willing to bend to all of her rules. I learned absolutely nothing. You analyze almost nothing, instead we write papers about art and things she finds interesting. Waste of a year!

She gives alot of D's but you can redo things so it doesn't hurt. I dont feel like she has helped my writing at all. Just no Diddly Sins. Be very polite to her. She can be easily distracted.

I have had Mrs. Farrell four times in the last three years. She can be intimidating. My writing has improved immensely. Just do the work and you'll have little to complain about.

It's easy to get a bad grade (I got a ton) but it's also easy for there to be no evidence of that bad grade on your report card (I got an A). She's also really funny. Not evil at all (well, rarely).

An amazing teacher! Super hard...she hands out D's like mad, but she lets a lot of things slide to boost your grade.

Many people are saying she judges you day 1 & you can't avoid that. Not true. She hated me and then loved me and I still got a good grade. If you work, you will succeed. She changed my life.

Good if you don't know grammar/topic sentences. Otherwise, not much to learn from her. Grades you on unannounced criteria.

She's one of my favorite teacher's of all time. She'll make you work, and she isn't afraid to give you back a paper with a D on it, but she's hilarious and a great teacher.

Mrs. Farrell's teaching style was challenging! Initially, her personality is jolting but it is a fascade. Despite popular belief, she is a WONDERFUL individual!

She overrates herself. She is known for being extremely hard and challenging, but you'll soon learn that this is just a false reputation she tries to spread.
