Had her for Intercert Science: loved her and the subject and got an A. Had her for LC Maths: hated her and the subject and got a D. She couldn't get her head around the fact that I had a scientific mind but not a mathematical one so it was a rough 2 yrs! Not a woman to get on the wrong side of but a brilliant teacher who knew her stuff inside out

Ms Solan was a great Maths teacher, pretty strict, but we definitely respected her and WORKED HARD!

One of the best teachers you'll ever come across - and that's from someone who was pretty useless at maths! Commanded respect but got it because it was deserved! Tough but genuine. Would like to have more teachers like her.(I can see that now but would have found it terrifying at the time!)

Mrs S thought me Sums back in the 80s, she gave up trying to teach me Mathematics after I was 40 minutes late to her first 45 minute class. A top class woman.
