Paula taught me English between 77 and 82. Great teacher...but shouted a lot...i guess with hindsight, she was young and trying to control the class. Great teacher nevertheless. Advised me to do Pass English for Leaving cert; i ignored her and did Hons...got a B...

I had Ms. Kennedy for French in 1980 and she's not a teacher I remember fondly. I would have to agree with many of the sentiments here. We were terrified, as this teacher was always in bad form, screaming shouting and generally bullying. I can only hope the years softened here.
I will happily concede that she was one of two female teachers in a school with 1000 boys, so that can't have been easy and she must have found herself constantly defensive, such a pity.

Truly, the worst teacher I ever had. if she liked you and thought you were cute, then great (a bit weird for 13 yr old kids), otherwise, she screamed endlessly and a bit mental. Slapped me in the face once, knocked me out of the desk for talking to the kid behind me. Psycho
