Such a lovely person who really understood her students. I honestly miss her classes, even after four and a half years! I never liked English before having her as a teacher, and hated it in fifth and sixth year after her retirement. She always encouraged me and was very objective in her marking. A perfectly wonderful human being and a fantastic teacher.
Total legend, hands down. She taught me 10 years ago, I was a massive pain, she was still amazing towards me. Now a teacher myself I can really appreciate her approach and strength. A very inspiring woman. Not to mention she was the only English teacher who ever made the subject remotely interesting for me. Hope she has a great retirement.
Literallyno better teacher, she's brilliant, a shame she's retired now...
Mrs Barry is a lovely woman, who is very gentle and caring but also like most teachers has a fiery side to her, which is needed with some of the twats in the class. She does mainly focus on the students who are getting on well and who understand everything leave the students who maybe aren't as smart to fall behind.
good teacher but dosnt help people who struggle and only looks onto good students and llets every one else fall into a deep hole with no knowledge,bit overatted
she's a good teacher if you're good at English but not all that helpful if you aren't
TY psychology is the best class ever! This woman is brillant, explains stuff and make's it such an enjoyable class and my sister had her for leaving cert english and got an A! BRILL!
me barry is dead cool, she said i was a spounge, whatever that means i dunno? but oterwise shes dead cool
WE LOVE MRS BARRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
great techer. definately 1 of the best in the school
Laurene Barry is one of the best teachers in Ireland. As a past pupil, who had her for 5 years, and has gone on to teach myself, I can say with all honesty that this woman is one of the greatest examples of strong, independent, intelegent and humourous females, and a great role model for any girl looking to make it in a man's world. And the sarcasm is hilarious if you're not on the wrong side of it. Also, I found her open to religion and religious debates. Cheers, Mrs Barry, you rock.
a better teacher than she gets credit for. i suppose it's just a matter of opinion, but i could never fault her.
One of the single greatest influences of my life. Pretty much every class was stimulating. As teachers go probably one of the nicest people you'll ever meet and I had her as a teacher for 5ish years.
had her for english - found her very helpful and she really helped me get through the LC without going mentally insane
i have ms.barry for l.cert and i think she is amazing!please give us all the notes you can though miss!keep up the great work!
piled on the work but was great craic in class, at times! got on very well with her and i was not a nerd
This woman has,for me,opened the vista on what literature can mean to one's life.Her passion for life it is amazing,but you have to love English,not just grades
mrs barry was a lovely teacher. i had for class a good few years ago but she improved my grade unbelievably because she put the effort into making you try!
I found her very understanding and light hearted yet direct in her teachings. she just really wants people to try.
tinks every1 is meant 2 b brill at english. SLOW DOWN. makes it difficult. but can b cool
Is currently my year head and does hav her pets.if u are 1 of them you'll luv her but if not you feel inadequate. not as dedicated as she makes out to be.
mrs barry is extremely good at english, there is no better, but she doe's pile on the homework
I really liked her... she does her job with integrity, and i wants to help the students do well. She has a love for her subject which carries across
i know others liked her but i thought mr herbert was better, ah she was way too opinionated wouldn't take on board views of others
shes a brill teacher but ike every other teacher she has her moments!!trust me shes sound but dont go near her wen shes mad.shes de best yh evr
She thinks she rules the school. she came in and gave our class a 8 page essay,and shes not even our teacher! she is very intimidating and mean
one of my fave teachers ever! so helpful, and is really understanding, as long as you are actually trying. Her classes are perfect ratio laugh to work
Nice - as long as you are bright and top of the class. If you are not of any use to her you are left feeling worthless. You could be cut off in an instant.
Ms.barry thinks that she is the queen or somtin....I mean she has this illusion that she is above it all.I'm sorry,but this is not acceptable whatsoever.
Good teacher but if you can't spell two words your dislexic! i would like her to give us more notes on what we need to know as she doesn't give many.
One of the best teachers in mpp.always has time to help and is so well respected. Passionate about debating and really brings out the best in students.Lovely.
Mrs.Barry has an unparalleled love and understanding of English, and has an abilty to pass this gift on to her students. She is an asset to the school.
Best teacher in MPP, passionate about literature and v.intelligent. If at all "condescending", only towards those who don't listen and can't spell big words.
as a past student of Barrys I fo;nd her helpful and informative however at times quite condascending towards certain students.
