Ms.Kirby is my favourite teacher and definitely the best in the country. She is very kind, caring and understanding. I hope to have her for LC and JC. Sometimes she gets a temper but it's nearly always fair and when it's not fair a few days later she comes back and apologises. She doesn't just explain the stuff to everyone by reading a PowerPoint or book she says it from her head which makes it easier to learn and understand. So helpful with my essays. <3

Puts a lot of pressure on a student and would get all sensitive about it if you slipped up on one of her terrifying "Dun gach rud! Close everything!" spiels. But you have to admit, she by far the best teacher at Pres. She is very personal, kind and down-to-earth. Her notes are exceptional and every student understands what she's talking about. Besides the odd guilt trip about not learning stuff, Mrs Kirby is such a legend of a teacher.
