Ms. Porcaro is getting too old to be a teacher, she will just write random things on the board and then realize she is wrong and confuse the whole class. She is rude and will call you out on things in front of the whole class, and she just assumes people know the material even though she didn't teach it.

She is definitely in the top 3 worst teachers at Preston. I don't know how she even has 2 stars, if there was an option for no stars she would have that. She is confusing and rude, and calls out students in front of everyone, which is so disrespectful.

She is getting too old to convey what she is trying to say. She struggles to get her idea across in a clear manner and confuses students. I have asked her questions before and she has dodged them. I feel as though she has forgotten how to teach. She also puts the class down a lot and complains about how poorly we are doing, considering we are an honors class. If it was not for her poor teaching, maybe we would succeed. Thank God I had algebra last yea because I'd be in trouble if I didn't.

Ms. Porcaro is an awful teacher. She ask's us for questions then gets mad when we actually ask them. If we don't understand something she'll tell us how we're an honors class and how its not hard. She will just go faster and make everything harder to understand. He homework is harder the the examples in class. She once gave us a test and no one finished so i lost over 10 points for incompletness and failed the test. All together an awful teacher and i do not recomend her for anything.

One of the worst teachers at Preston because she can't teach. She basically spends almost all of the block discussing about how we're an honors class and we can't slack around (when really it's only a select few who are). She repeatedly accuses the students from Accelerated Alg. 1 in freshmen year of disrupting class instead of those students who were in honors - like really? Everyone from both classes were talking. She would also be very mean and rude to us at times and suddenly nice. ANNOYING.

I had her for two years. She's a nice person (though slightly annoying) and knows the work, she just can't teach it.

Mrs. Porcaro is great, and helpful. Sadly, many of my classmates don't enjoy the class because it is chalenging, and they are not too bright. Thanks Mrs. P.
