I found her teaching style lazy and unhelpful. She made people read from texts rather than having us ( or her!) discuss the critical points needed for the exam. I got grinds.

Had her for english from first year and found her good. Yeah she's lazy but when you get to leaving cert its on your own head and she knows that. If you listen to her she actually is a great teacher.

Had Mrs. Holden for leaving cert english and she was a brilliant teacher. Shame on the posters who are obviously too stupid to pay attention and realise that they are being taught by a legend!

Scary in Irish, lovable in English. She's the Simon Cowell of teaching: it's hard to do it, but personally gratifying to know you pleased her.

Tough on her students. As a good student was encouraged all the way and really appreciate the push. She didn't try to be cool/popular, an excellent teacher.
