Simply the best teacher I ever had. Was devastated by her passing, and three years after her death, and 13 years after I left the school, I still think about her often and thank God she was there to help me (somehow) pass maths. God bless you, Geraldine.

One of the best teachers I ever had. Wouldn't have passed higher level maths without her and would never have got into college either. So sad to hear she died this year. May she rest in peace.

Giving grinds to students in your class. Really dodgy. Go Ms Kierans just as good if not better and she is way friendlier.

Encouraging your own students to go to you for grinds ie charging them for what they should be thought in school anyway???? Dodgy
