Her business class is the best and it counts for English credit. She has a lot of knowledge about the subject and makes it easy and fun to do it.
Best teacher on campus
THERE are no words to explain my love for her!! She is the best teacher on this campus! She knows a lot and teaches well! Ask questions and go to tutorial! She always helps me and barely gets mad! Hands down best teacher you will ever get in your studying career
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 takes FOREVERRRRRRRRR to update grades. expect to not know at all what you have in the class until the last week of the semester. thats how bad her procrastination is.
Strict, informative, but if you behave in class, she can be quite nice! Gives a lot of 'easy points'--if you do your homework everyday, you are sure to get an A because all the tests and quizzes cover
she's truly a kind teacher and passionate about her subject. just be sure to work hard. It's well worth it b/c she prepares you well for all the writing in honors euro lit and ap lit
when i first met her she intimitated me but after having her she was actually really nice. and wanted you to succeed in class. she was big on particiaption
She is very stern and lacks emotion/passion when she teaches. To some extent, she's a good teacher. But overall--overrated.
she is never in class and when she is she always has her favorites
I get tired of watching her in front of the class, with that one expression. She hardly ever displays any emotion. She does little to help her students. Not approachable.
I will never forget her class. She is the most incredible English teacher you will ever have. Really strengthens your writing abilities.
I had her for HEL. She's an OK teacher. She grades hard, but reasonably. Once you get to know her, you won't think she's so scary.
Mrs. Banagas is the best! Her Honors Eng 10 class is difficult, but if you figure out what she wants and you participate in class, she will really help you learn. She facilitates great discussions too
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.
Shes a tough grader, but overall shes a good teacher that preps u for college classes
she's a nice person, but a hard teacher and grader. you learn a lot if you put in the effort. participate and you'll get along well with her. not so good with grading and handing things back.
at times, you think that she likes you. but other times, you're unsure. she can be very cold or very friendly. other than that, she's a really good (BUT HARD!) teacher :]
She may be a good teacher, but she comes across like a wall with a face.
She's hard, helpful, but she is really confusing, cause she will just stand there and wait for someone to get the answer instead of explaining things if noone gets it
She's a really good teacher I suppose. But I honestly wonder if she has a personality
She's a respectful teacher who leads insightful discussions and promotes higher level thinking.
she is intimidating at first...but you have to love this lady...deff isn't the best at letting you know your grade though
Mrs. Banagas is the best english teacher I'v had, she's awsome, nice, and an amazing teacher. I'v learned so much and really appreciate what she's done.
Intimidating... She is a tough teacher, but she makes students smarter. She would be better if she handed papers back and gave us sufficient time to complete projects.
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.
As a freshman, I remember people would always make fun of her. They would always complain and say that she was very difficult and not that cool. I never had her though.~2004 Grad
uhh, started grading it 3 weeks after we turned them in and then she rushed it in about 3 days of finals. asks questions, classroom is silent, doens't help.
She did take a long time to grade papers, but do you know how long that must take her? I liked her. Be prepared to work hard!
I really respect her, she makes us think and challenges us everyday! One of my favorite teachers!
Mrs. Banagas is a great teacher! She really challenges her kids and is really great to talk to too... yay Banagas!
shes pretty cool, she read good books, the lovly bones rocked! he class was major easy!
Class is difficult, but worth taking. you learn a lot from her.
such a great english teacher, she even helps her last years students with english! really cool, clear, might want to try not scaring us though with your glance
If you want to learn anything ....take her class. You might not like it while you're in it, but when the year is over, you'll realize she taught you so much.
USC! Great person to talk to, class may get a little boring, but always great
I loved her; she really enjoys what she teaches and so I did too!
coolest teacher here, the best role model/person to talk to and look up to
One of the best/most real teachers at NHS!! Makes class interesting
Ms B. is the coolest!!!!! The most enjoyable english class ever!!
