05/05/14 - Honestly, she is a great teacher. Just pay attention and don't be rude. Give thoughtful insight and just be an exited, perky student. She is really fun to talk to and is always smiling. But seriously, I love her. Just smile a lot. Show More Show Less
04/12/14 - Mrs. Alfonso is the best teacher ever! She is super nice and really helpful. Sometimes she is kind of boring, but she doesn't get mad at you when you ask questions (like some other teachers). My writing has improved a lot and I got into honors. Show More Show Less
03/28/13 - Mrs. Alfonso is a great teacher with a good heart. She is a little laid-back, but not to the point of it being a negative personality. I am not doing so well, but she is really nice, and trying to get me to honors. Show More Show Less
Mrs. Alfonso is a very laid-back teacher who used to be (gasp!) a flight attendant... I don't think she has enough experience to be teaching GATE students because although she skims the curriculum, students don't truly LEARN in this class, or prepare for high school for that matter.
So if you're looking for an easy A, good for you!, but if you're looking for an easy A in high school...you're going to have a bad time.
And don't whistle or sleep in class...don't get on her nerves. Show More Show Less
05/06/12 - She is very laid back and easy going, but she has not taught anything so far this year. She makes rude comments and is ignorant about the students' needs.It would be helpful if she could clarify her instructions as well. Show More Show Less
