I love Mrs. Banagas! She's really funny and knows how to teach without boring her students. She's very passionate about what she does and manages to smile even when she's very tired. She's definitely the favorite English teacher I've ever had

Mrs. Banagas is one of the nicest teachers I have this year and is so helpful. She knows a lot so don't be afraid to ask her for help because she will give you a very straightforward answer. But pay attention or you wont do well on tests.

Great teacher. I loved having her my freshmen year and I love how I can go back to her when I need some advice on anything. Definitely one of my favorite teachers by far. My advice for anyone who has her: don't be afraid to ask her questions. She's easily approachable if you stay after class. Also, participate in discussions. She likes those type of students.

She knows a lot, and if you pay attention, you should do fine on all tests. Exams always have a lot of class discussion crap rather than actual facts from the book. She is a very lazy teacher, and does not post things until the night before it is due, and if there are student teachers, she outsources her job and does nothing. But she was an easier A than my 9th grade english class. Make sure you don't bs work and actually do it the way it is assigned. But all in all, decent teacher.

She is very stern and lacks emotion/passion when she teaches. To some extent, she's a good teacher. But overall--overrated.

Take the initiative to talk to her outside of class to review your work/essays, because she's not good at giving back work on time for you to review. She's really nice but a stern teacher.

Lol. My class was silent too, but I think it made us think about what we were reading. Plus, more people actually did the reading because they thought they might be called on in class.
