Septic would be the only appropriate way of describing her but that said it only applied to the students she didnt like, almost resulted in me dropping out of school, fortunately i just moved school & my only regret since was that i put up with her for as long as i did...enough said

Left Muckross in 2001, now have a degree in French, enough said :)

Hated French with Ms Coleman, loved it with Ms Tarpey-Gainey! Wonderful teacher and is very encouraging if you make an effort.
Uncooperative, dismissive, too harsh. Overall a very unhelpful teacher.
such an amazing frebch teacher,please take your old 3rd year class 4 the leaving!such a great educator - RESPECT!
She's a really good teacher and knows everyhting about the subject unlike my j.c teacher. she does need to learn how to write on the bored tho! She a legend!
I found her to be a great French teacher. Brings a bit of style to the classroom!
I can't believe some of the comments here! This woman did nothing but put us down for 6years. Very un-encouraging individual!
tarpey please keep teaching for the LC your the best
Great teacher. Her enthusiasm motivates students 2 learn more bout language& culture of France. Tries 2 maximise learning outcome 4 weak &strong students alike.
gifted teacher. She basically covered an entire 3 year curriculum in one year
Does not just teach for the Leaving Cert and shows genuine and committed interest in her students. A fabulous educator.
Such a brilliant teacher. Was blessed to have her for the Junior Cert. Really patient with everyone!
not a good teacher - teaches us how to pass the leaving not how to speak french
