I only had Ms O'Connell in my first year, she taught me English. She was strict but fair, once you did your work she was up for a laugh. She was always very helpful. My only regret is that she never taught me history, she was literally the stuff of legends in our school. I wish she hadn't retired :(
She is the best teacher that I ever had,she was very helpful and compassionate towards her studants.
Best teacher ever. It was a case of do ur work and if not do an extra punishement without getting a lecture. She was great.
