Had her for her last three years in the school.Intimidating and terrifying in class but helped me out a lot outside of school.Misunderstood teacher in my book.She just got the job done.
Very strict teacher but totally sound outside school
Wow, she ruled a class with an iron fist but boy did it make you good at her subjects! Excellent teacher
Amusing to see some recent reviews; I remember (yawn!!) her first day in 1987, she was Ms Shields back then. Good teacher, bit highly strung and not that scary back then...
had miss russell for four years and she was out more than 50% of the time.when she was in it was hell.had totally unrealistic way of teaching but it worked.
Totally unnatural way of teaching, I think she was extremely stressed
I left the school after two years, and did the bare minimum for French afterwards. I still got an A in honours french because I had picked up so much in those two years. I think that says enough...
She is can be called the "STEEL TEACHER" of the school , a legend
Amazingly sound but increbibly intimidating - when/if she turned up. Was possibly her strictness and the fear she instilled that turned people of foreign languages.
a good teacher but she doesn't need to intimidate you to teach you
Quite possibly the best teacher in the school, strict but you learn and come away not hating her!! That says alot
Incredably Scary and strict in the classroom, but outside she's the soundest person ever. A great teacher though. You'd be near fluent in Irish after Russell!
Without doubt the best teacher in the school. strict in class but still very approachable. LEGEND
one of the best teachers ever in the school the room she taught in goes down in history. one of the most helpful teachers in the school anyone who worked succee
she certainly knows what shes doing ill give her that
A fantastic teacher, one of the best I ever had. Very very strict, but fantastic nonetheless. Outside class, one of the most approachable teachers I knew.
Scared me in 1st year..... just annoyed me in 3rd year, not a good teacher at all.
A great teacher. Back in 5th and 6th year she really got great results from us. Also scared me to death. A class woman!
By far the best techer that I have ever had. alo the most strict. I have never learned more in one class.
absolute legend....along with felton easily the best teacher in the school!!! gets excellent results from her students.....top quality aswell....
strict but effective teacher. produces results from all students
