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
great teacher - taught me english between '77-'82. School magazine called her "sweet talking woman" (ELO song) - very apt!
great teacher. She thought me in first year(1985. We had this great book with all short stories as the class book...amazing
Ah I loved Paula. Genuine as they come and a good teacher. Great laugh when you know where to draw the line too
One of the few teachers I'll miss from Benildus. Really really nice person and a good teacher
An awfull teacher who is lazy and just doesnt care, maybe if she spent less time giving out about ridiculous things we might actually learn something!!!!!!!
Very nice genuine teacher who actually cares about her students!Always up for a laugh too. In short, a legend
A most uninsipiring educator. Amongst her piers she is outclassed by most. She could only have improved.
No, she hasn't changed. Those other ratings must be from Rugby Players,
I can't agree with the earlier scores. I found her uninterested and uninteresting back in my day. Maybe she's changed...
Good old Pauline, she made us laugh, she thought us all very well and was lovely and nice to us all too
I was brutal at French but Mrs Kennedy was always helpful.
top teacher in her subject and an excellent coach too
super teacher and a great help at the polo coaching too
outstanding in her field and a terrific piano player
so nice and so caring but when she screams she could blow your bleedin ear drums out
she is very caring and nice to her students and does a very good job
great catchphrases-you noodle, knucklehead, gobdaw!!
encourages all her puils to try their hardest and improve themselves any way they can
Intimidating but extremely nice woman. She is a really good teacher, very critical of your work in a positive way
nicest n most interest tutor i have had!! she is deadly!!Never gives up on you!!
absolutely incredible teacher and so so sound. best teacher
Possibly the worst teacher in the school. Spent more time trying to get us all to drop to pass than actually teaching us....
We had you for French from 82-87 and I can still speak a few words. Just want to say thanks.
She is a good teacher but could be a little less NARKY
I have to say i found her to be a very good teacher who knew how to take the 'big lads' down a peg or two. I was pleased with my results in her class.
Good teacher depending on the students personality, didnt suit me
Not once in 2 years did Paula use the blackboard,not once,very ineffective & spent more time trying 2 bring the class down to Pass, very poor!!
Mrs. K wouldn't give an inch- push it and you'd be deaf for a week- good fun though and learnt a lot
An excellent teacher. One of the best. "3 or 5?" Definitely a 5.
really good teacher who gets the material across clearly. Thanks mrs. K
