While she was strict she was an excellent teacher and passionate about her students
Strict! I was terrified of her when I had her as my form teacher when I was 11 years old. My class were told by one of teachers that the whole school felt sorry for us when they found out which class was having Mrs Mayes before we started MH.
The most fearsome teacher during my time at MHGS. I had her for many subjects for five years - left petrified at times.
