gives out essays she prepared 25 years ago not satisfactory teaching for any level of irish. blatent laziness comes across in her teaching and she picks out people to tease so that she can make a distraction away from her bad teaching methods.

Really disastrous - seems to pick on people in an attempt to hide her own incompetence . Very lazy and uninspiring - not recommended for Leaving Cert Honours.

I got myself the grades years ago. She gives lots of notes alright which isn't actually effective teaching. Seems quite bored and therefore class is boring.
