Although her class was tough, I learned more in her class than any other I have ever taken in South. Once you get the hang of it, her class gets much more interesting and easier. Her teaching style does not suit most people but it just takes some getting used to.

I had her last year. I can only say that I'm glad to be out of her class. As you might have noticed, she is quite knowledgeable about her subject (and loves Great Gatsby to the point of insanity); however, I would say that her class was a drag. If you don't get on her good side fast, you will literally DREAD going to her class everyday.

She is a great person and great teacher. It's hard to get used to her teaching style and by no means is her class easy, but i feel like i learned a lot and my essay writing improved tremendously.

Ms. Ruggiero is really a great teacher. I am so glad I had her for LA sophomore year. She really made me more confident as a writer, and I will be able to thank her enough for that!

She did teach about some fundementals of writing structure. She has helped me write better essays, but she doesn't accept diff. opinions. She is a bias english teacher.

She is very dull and loads u with peop-quizes. It is definitely unfair and plays favorites. She makes no attempts to help us improve our writing. She is always suprised when everyone fails her essays.

She is so-so as a teacher, usually pleasant, fair in her grading, but also somewhat boring. Doesn't have the spark needed to enliven the class. Does not like differences of opinion.

Mrs. Ruggiero's LAII Honors class was my fav. last year. The atmosphere was not as challenging as it could have been but she always left you with something to think about and encouraged in depth quality theses. Another BIG PLUS is that she'll give you SAT Practice writing sections during class time. She's also really great about handing over the discussion to the class-lots of great debates. Super woman who's ready to go above and the call of duty to help interested students. All her 05 students: Rejoice
