Always got the class to just memorise huge chunks of text so that we could get points in the JC or LC but in reality, I ended up not understanding Irish at all because it was only a case of memorising her work, not being able to construct our own sentences. I can't have a basic conversation now in Irish because she wasn't bothered to teach for the sake of giving her students a skill, only for the sake of passing exams so that her stats stay high.

In hindsight a really really good teacher. I much prefered her for history but then again it was a whole lot easier than Irish.

10 years later, Ms G was a tough, good and thorough teacher. I had good and bad experiences, but overall I was motivated by fear. I went from no Irish to a C+ in the LC. Go Sandra!

While studying for the Junior Cert, I was petrified of this woman but, in the end, I got an A. As a 6th year, she is now civil and still a good teacher.
