Ms. Owens is the reason I'm any good at English at all! She can be very strict and she often give a lot of work, but it all paid off in the end. She can be sound out sometimes if you get on her good side too. I couldn't have asked for a better English teacher.

Ms Owens is absolutely brilliant! her attitude to students is wonderful, always there to help out and her teaching methods are legendary! She knows more than the text book and can recite her knowledge like reading it straight from the book, she can be a bit mad if you dont know your stuff or dont do your homework but if she asks you do do it then do it! Overall an amazing person and teacher

What a fantastic teacher!! I acc wish I could have her for every subject!! She's aproper legend and goes off on massive stories about going to Paris and stuff in the middle of plans!! It's the middle if summer and still know my French verbs that just proves that shes a class teacher! Scaring people into learning is just her way but it works!! Properly love her like!! Best teacher ever and a great year head! :Dalways full of praise it's time to give something back! :D thanks ms Owens!

She is that teacher who will be awake the night before your Junior Cert or Leaving Cert exams worrying about you. Her tenancy to shout is only her style of teaching and why she is so amazing at it!

I'll be perfectly honest, without Avril Owens I would have had no hope whatsoever of passing honours Leaving Cert French - B2. Tough but fair. Sometimes smiles.
