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!)
What a ledge. Truly scared by her - she corrected your exam with you - but such a lovely woman underneath it all. One of the best teachers I ever had
Frigthened by her reputation after TY I found her to be a lovely person. Obviously cared about us and a teacher of renowned ability.
Many many years ago Monday afternoons were double physics then Maths a frightening start to anyone's week. a great teacher who's bark was a lot worse than bite.
what a hero! frightening for the first year but lots o laughs for the second! she's the reason i'm still studying physics! absolute legend! terrific teacher!
Brilliant. So helpful - if she liked you. Great advice in leaving cert about courses etc. I owe a lot to that woman!!!
She scared the hell out of me, but she got me a great mark in LC Maths. Brilliant!
The best maths teacher ever.....especially if you liked maths, then she liked you!!
Top teacher, little scarey for the j.c but for the l.c loved her, very helpful definitely a teacher missed
"Child!" Always encourgaing, helpful and approachable. Sorely missed, I'm sure.
What a brilliant physics teacher....she was great, loved her and got on real well
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.
