she's nice sometimes, but she can be rude and mean too. she's probably the most stressful teacher I have. she gives out way too much hw and expects us to know it and we read way too fast in my opinion. she's pushing her students way too hard to the point of stress. I know we're in honors English but that doesn't give her the right to stress us out and push us too hard cause it'll only stress and break us rather than help us learn. if you have her, just switch second semester.

Mrs. Cefalu is the most caring teacher I have. She authentically cares for her students and goes out of her way to help each kid learn. Her lessons are very engaging and her energy means that the classroom is never boring. Yes, the workload is heavy, but we learn so much more than we would have otherwise. Mrs. Cefalu does assign hard test but she gives her students everything to rise to the expectations and above.

Mrs. Cefalu is extremely moody just like some of the students say. If she likes you, it is all good. If not it is very bad. She is this way in her personal life as well. She holds a mean grudge.

I had Mrs. Cefalu for English CAHSEE. She was so nice, and easy too! She is really hyper and all, but that energy is what makes the class going. Thanks for the help Mrs. Cefalu!

She's a really good teacher, but it was easily the class with the heaviest workload for me as a freshman (I had honours english). I have really fond memories of the class. My friend said she was biased- but I didn't really notice anything like that, so she must have liked me I guess. ^.^

Cef was one of the best teachers i've had. She not only taught me more than sophomore and junior year (so far) combined, but she is totaly interested in her kids and is more than willing to listen to you. I didnt like the class so much while i was in it, but now i look back and i wish i was in it agian. i go an visit her as often as i can cause she's the BEST! i <3 ceffy!
