Phenomenal teacher. Ms. Visbal absolutely cares about her students and loves her job. Many students quickly disregard her energetic and colorful approach to teaching only to say that-
"Her workload is too easy."
"Yoga is a waste of time."
"I learned nothing."
Well I implore you to give her a chance and surely, you will find something meaningful like most of her other students or reviewers here. Her class is always entertaining and I think that's something unique in a learning environment.
The greatest. Really wise and philosophical, will teach you about life.
Honestly? im extremely unimpressed. Our classes are derailed by "yoga sessions", and inane "bonding activities". We barely do anything involving actual reading, and I don't feel like I have anything to learn from her. Would not recommend if you actually like English class.
Words can not express my love for her. You're SO lucky if you have her as your teacher. Love how she's always energetic and she cares so much about her student.
easiest teacher and very energetic. she really cares about her students and wishes the best for them.
Nice teacher, easy class.
she is truly an amazing teacher. very energetic and sometimes does yoga with the class. She is super understanding of students and their problems and will let u hand in an assignment a little late if you speak with her about it first. she is also just a fantastic person.
great teacher, if you dont visit it often though she'll forget your name which is kinda depressing ;(
great teacher! she really understands her students and connects with them
Ms.Visbal is probably the best teacher I've ever had. She understands the work and made class fun for the students, I looked forward to going to her class every day and she even gave me second chances with homework and assignments to help boost my grade.
Ms.Visbal was one of my favorite teachers during freshman year. In class discussions, she would give us various perspectives in political issues within our society, and throw in some things about her experiences with psychology and such. At times, I found the classes extremely boring, since we would dedicate an extensive amount of time doing Greek Morpheme work, catching up with other classes, etc. But, there were also those times when we would all get absorbed into the class, which was fun :)
Such an amazing teacher, I learned so incredibly much about life and English of course!
She's like the best teacher ever omg. Amazing class discussions, not only about the work but life in general. She usually goes low on the homework because she knows how much the students already stress about all the other homework they have from their classes
Best teacher ever
cool! great teacher. excellent, interesting topics covered in class, learned about lit and about life. would love to be in her class again!!
easy, easy, and easy. but you wouldn't learn much. her stuff is light work. 98 throughout the whole year if you did her work. she accepts late homework
Ms. Visbal was honestly one of my favorite teachers ever. She made me want to participate in her class conversations. She also really cares about her students and shows genuine interest in what they have to say.You'd be lucky to have her as a teacher
Great teacher. It's really easy to get high grades in her class, that is, if you do the work. Tests are easy.
My favorite teacher from Freshman year. Wish I had her again. Great person, kind and caring. Really wants students to do well and will do her best to make sure you do. Still talk to her sometimes. Would make a really great Psychology teacher. Lots of homework but her tests aren't overly hard. If you have her you're lucky, She's a great person. Do her work and get on her good side.
she is so fake. on the first day, she would be all "oh my god! im so happy to have you in my class <3" but she'll be a complete mean person right after 1 class. She does NOT joke around and shes always telling us to be quiet when we dont even talk
ms.V will prob be one of the BEST teachers u will ever have, she is very inspirational, she sincerely cares about her students and she is funny and i just love her to death
Ms. V was a lovely teacher! All the good reviews are right! However, I feel like sometimes, we had way to much to do all at the same time. For example, Greek Morphemes plus homework from the book that we were currently reading. Sometimes, it drove me crazy.. Also, sometimes, we wasted a lot of time, which I personally disliked. And we didn't do creative writing which was a disappoinment. Despite that, she was the coolest teacher I had last year and it was great having her as a one.
I love Ms. Visbal as a person, but I feel that she would be better suited teaching a psychology class rather than English. She's an easy teacher who really wants her students to do well, but I feel like I didn't learn that much from her. Most of the writing we did revolved around Regents prep, which was kind of a disappointment since we didn't really learn much about how to be better writers. There was little to no creative writing and most of the work was rather dull.
Ms. Visbal was one of my favorite teachers freshman year. Her work and tests are super easy, or maybe it's because she explained things very well. I remember a few times we wasted either most of out period or both periods talking about things happening out there now. If you have Ms. Visbal, you're really lucky; one of my favorite teachers at Tech so far.
I really hate how she has favorites and they're always those girls who look like they're 7 years old and are huge teachers pets. Doesn't teach and goes off topic A LOT.
Easy and fun, but not a great teacher if you're actually looking to learn something. I enjoyed her class somewhat but I didn't learn much
visbal is awesone, and she is quite interesting and funny while telling us the things that she is concerned with sometimes. sometimes she gives a lot of work, but her class is an easy 95 .
the best freshmen english teacher ever! She doesn't finish something without explaining it clearly. if you get her, you should have an awesome english grade on your report card
She was the best English teacher I have ever had. She was an easy grader and a sweetheart who actually taught! Plus she was like my second mom (: she was so much fun!
Ms. Visbal was very funny, entertaining, and always had something to share with us; she was a great teacher throughout the year.
Awesome Teacher. Really loves her job and you can tell she cares about you.
Best teacher ever. I actually want to pay attention and whenever she reads us a chapter of our book, she makes it sound a lot more interesting than it is. But I think she should be more organized.
One of my favorite classes. Great lessons. Only thing I would say is that she should assign homework in a consistent pattern rather than having no homework and then piling it all the next day.
She is very helpful whenever I have a question about something and is a patient teacher. She chooses very provocative books for class, but could have chosen a few better. One of my favorites for sure.
She is a good person and she has great motives. Sometimes I feel like she doesn't give us homework for a while, and then piles us with it. Her tests are fairly okay, based on how you studied.
She's a great teacher. Very kind and actually cares about her students. I can't give constructive criticism because there is nothing to critique :)
Best teacher in freshmen year even through she don't really know me. She cares about the future of her students
She is a great teacher and we read great works of literature from different parts of the world, also she has a degree in psychology. And is willing to listen to you after school
Actually cares about her students unlike other teachers :)
class is really easy, not the helpfull-est teacher (confusing/confused at times), stuff is pretty straightforward with her, class is easy and "fun" b/c we watch movies and do fun stuff.
Awesome but i think she should lay of the Hispanic stuff, she is obsessed
best teacher ever , really cares bout her students. Shes also really helpful when you need help on something
miss visbal is the best! really easy to pass her class. gives out 90s like no tomorrow
she's a great teacher and funny but she can be mean and serious if you really get her mad or talk to much. she's clear in her notes and explains well and will time to time give you philisophical lessons or something of the like
Ms. Visbal is a nice friendly lady but not particular helpful nor competent. I like her as a person and as a friend but she was useless when it comes to my education and personal growth.
Ms.Visbal was by far a great teacher. You can tell that she loves her students and she is very clear in what she wants in her work.
awesome teacher, if you get ms. visbal, you should be VERY grateful to have one of the nicest teachers in tech
I learned well from Ms. Visbal through my whole year of freshman English. She is a great teacher and cares for her students. She is great in explaining things and the work is quite fair. She had a number of times to be a bit late with the work , but that's okay cause we still got to go over everything. Remember to read cause I think that NYC English classes can only give you a portion of the amount you need in the future. After school, try to look up the light blue textbook, it's important.
Ms.visbal is totally awesome. i loved english class this year. i felt like ms.visbal actually cared about most students and she tried her best to make all her students pass her class. And another thing she also helped us by telling us wat exactly wat was going to be on her tests which make it easier to pass. I really enjoyed her class. THANKS MS.VISBAL XD
Yah so even though im pretty sure you dont like me,seeing as how i cut a pd of ur class, i still think that you're a great teacher
Great teacher. Gives you lots of work but nice deadlines. Real nice to everyone.
Ms. Visbal is a great and understanding teacher, she lets you hand in homeworks and projects late; although sometimes she's a little too lenient and I take advantage and hand it all my homeworks late. Poetry was my favorite part of this whole year and it was fun to make my own little collection of poetry. I hope that next year she'll be able to teach my class. :)
Ms. Visbal is one of my favorite teachers this year, and she isnt much of a harsh grader. Shes not only concerned about your academics, but she also cares about each individual, and all the things theyre going through. Shes the best !
She's the best English teacher Tech has to give. Very lenient with deadlines. Chill teacher ;)
She was one of the best teachers I ever had. She incorporates life lessons in class, and her discussions are extremely important. She's very leen about work, she gives you chances, but she can give a lot of work all at once! When she tells you to read the book, read the book. GOODLUCK!
Pretty fun easy teacher but she jams you with a lot of work. Have fun having her!
She's one of the best teachers I've ever had. She wasn't just a great English teacher, but she's taught everyone lots of lessons about life as well. Anyone who has her as a teacher is so incredibly lucky!! :)
Oh My God! She is the best teacher ever! :O She understands your problems, listens to you, and actually cares about you! (surprising for a teacher i noe). But she is sooo caring, funny and smart too! Shes the best teacher in the school
she is such a relaxed teacher, but still actually teaches and is very tolerant
She's really cool and laid back. Its easy to do well in her class if you read the books or at least spark notes.
Last year she never gone over a single SAT lesson, she didnt even know we were taking the psats. I learned nothing from writing or english but instead learned more from movies. Movies are great but i have to improve my writing. If your writing this i hope you make improvements for the juniors now, start doing sats prep! shes also a tough grader, so i would suggest transfer out of her class asap.
I've only had her for a week, yet I know that she's a great teacher. Very helpful, and she makes you want to pay attention. Last year, english was horrible because the teacher played favorites =[
NCIEST EACHER everrrrrrrrrrr. SHES easy going and nice. we also learn alot with movies as she was also a film studies teacher.
Ms. Visbal is a great teacher and a good person. She is very helpful and understanding, she breaks everything down so that you understand better and I think that whoever has her as a teacher is lucky.
She"s a very interesting teacher. Her teaching methods are relatively amusing. I appreciate her work ethics though, it realistic.
Ms V is one of my favorite english teachers i generally hate english classes i cant stand them but she had us read really cool books i feel i learned alot in her class more then these serious teachers
She's a great teacher and she's so nice and understanding! Some teachers only say they understand what students are going through but don't, but she definitely does! She's really cool. ;)
Awesome teacher. I learned a lot in her class for Film and Lit. great to talk to and genuinely cares about her students. One of my favorite teachers in Tech.
Very nice person but not a great teacher. You can slack off and still do very well. I love english and wish she'd make it more interesting or add substance to the class because it lacks flavor.
shes a great person, shes really nice and casual and down to earth and friendly which is awesome but I think she just needs to learn how to teach a bit better and itll be fine
i think ms. visbal is a fine person but not an especially "good" teacher.. she was uninspiring, boring, and i don't remember really learning anyting in her class. she's should teach elementary school
shes a very fair and down to earth teacher and she loves her students. she ltends to let us slide on the little things but expect us to deliver in the end. which we do of course. to be honest i didnt learn alot form my english classes all my years at tech. i only realize that now that im in college. but her class was definitely enjoyable and fresh. alot of students get fooled by her ditsyness, keep in mind she was a teen mother, dropped out of hs, join the military and has 3 masters.
She is very nive, VERY NICE, very cool, and knows a lot, seriosuly.. when seh actually teaches its preety cool how well she knws her stuff. But the times she teaches r rare. Great person, kid at heart, easy classs, just do u work. She's cool
she's a relatively nice lady. her work is ok, but when she gives work, there's quite a bit too do, otherwise it's alright. lots of help on them college essays too.
i'm not too fond of ms. visbal even though i do not doubt that she is a decent person. i found her uninspired and a 'by-the-books' sort of teacher. i can't think of a single thing that i learned. she teachers english to juniors and seniors and she shares
Extrememly easy grader and she's easy to talk to. =)
she has a street accent. she does help us with our college essays. shes a pretty good teacher.
She's cool... do ur work... she doesn't assign that much...
Ha! Was it english or how to apply make-up the subject? the woman couldn't even speak proper english herself...she would always ask me for help...loooool
very cool teacher. goes a little off track but hey its needed sometimes
i never really had her as a teacher but she and mr conti taught our class (together) the most i've ever learned in this school
