ah miss macken, the only teacher i'd say still teaching peig.. i had her from 1999-2005 for hons irish, she did truely believe in everyone, just was quite blunt about when you dissappointed her.
my favourite teacher in st raphaela's - from a past pupil
Pay her the respect she deserves and you'll be get one of the best teachers in the school. Only gives her time to students who want to learn. People giving bad ratings obviously weren't in her class.
Mackers is brilliant... you definatly know where you stand with her
Would rant off on non irish related things quite often. Not helpful to weaker students at all was quite unpleasent if you questioned anything. Deffo had her favourites. Lacks personality.
shes a rely gd teacher bu shes rely annoyin! nd she definitely has her favourites!!! not mentioning any names!! (cof cof) nd 1 oda ting she taught my mum nd my mums 37!!! haha
Wow she taught me for 5 years, 1975 - 1980 Can't believe she's still there. Was brilliant!
nicest teacher in the world!! great sense of humour, wat a legend! notes r really helpful!
This is my first year having Ms.Macken as it is also only my first year in this school. She reminds me of my old teacher. The write the same way and do the letter "b" the same way.
Probably the best teacher in the school. She is good at separating the weak from the strong.
ms macken is brilliant,she's strict but once u get 2no her and u dont get on her bad side she's lovely,loved having her as my teacher!
can be awful to certain students,but is a gem if u put d work in & respect her!she is so dedicated to religion,needs to b more open minded tho!
Love this woman! Spent 6 yrs in her class and loved every minute, never met anyone so kind and caring. A blessing to the school!
i hav her for honors irish and find her quiet hard. she is a good teacher. im sure if irish is your thing!!
The biggrest heart in the world. very caring and always ready to help! i love her!!!
oh my god i have left 7 yrs and had her for 6 and i love that woman she was the ultimate you know who we are macken the class o '98
lovely teacher! if you give respect you get it back! the school would be lost without her!
i had mackers for 5th n 6th yr, helped me out so much. i ended up gettin A in irish leavin cert with her help!
Needs to learn to respect students more.Impatient with slow learners. Bad communicator.Would be a better teacher if she listened more
I can't believe this teacher is still teaching! Learnt nothing in all the years she thought, if you couldn't speak Irish you were ignored, of no help.
Brilliant. One of those teachers you'll never forget.
Loved Irish class, if you're mature enough to respect her she'll respect you back in return. An extremely gifted, devoted and caring teacher. One of the best!
Thought me Irish for all 6 years in school, strict but we all love her!
I was afraid of her in first year but got used to her style of teaching.She is an excellent teacher,you can tell that she really loves her job as well as God!
We were gutted when she told us we wouldn't have her for the LC so we begged her to take us, wouldn't have wanted anyone else! Had her all 6 yrs and love her!
great teacher! alot of respect for her! has helped me no end!
i hav ms mackon for irish and i am wel not great at irish and so i find it hard in irish
she may be a bit intimidating at first but once she has thought you for a while you see what a kind and loving person she is
mackers is a legand! the school would be the dumps without her
Take the time to look past the stern exterior and you'll find a kind, considerate, caring teacher. Most people don't appreciate her dedication to her students.
