Best teacher I had upon reflection. Incredibly knowledgable. Instilled a slow-burning passion in literature that I still have today.

This teacher is actually related to Chuck Norris. If her and Godzilla came head to head I'm doubtful she would emerge with even a scratch, lives off only a diet of year 7 students and dictionaries. SHE IS INVINCIBLE.

Uses the word "ironical" too much, can never get anything across, but knows her stuff.

Knows pretty much everything other than how to operate a VCR. You can learn everything you'll need for your exams from Mrs Blackman, paying complete attention through a double period however can be extremely difficult. I'm not quite sure how her clarity rating is going to go, unfortunately very few Reading School students swallow dictionaries at a young age and are thus unable to keep up.

This woman knows everything. Ever. I believe that she is actually Minerva, the godess of wisdom, in a cunning disguise. THREE DEGREES I ASK YOU?!?! You are fairly assured of an A if she teaches you at A level and you work hard (assuming you have a brain and a hand that can hold a pen), and she is extremely helpful both in and out of lessons. Sometimes her references can be a little too obscure to be useful, but, as with anything, take what you can use from her lessons and discard the rest.

An excellent teacher, and very good looking for her age (I would). Sometimes her words leave you feeling embuzzled.

By far the best english teacher at the school. She explains everything with clarity and is unbelieveably knowledgable, making even the people who hate english (like me) like it.

Never before have I met a feminist teacher in an all boys school. Nonetheless, quite strict but very fair. She can explain a difficult topic to her class with outstanding ease. Extremely knowledgeable about world news and cultures. Overall an outstanding teacher.
