She NEVER grades papers in a timely manner. It would be most helpful to get feedback before you are in the middle of your next paper. Never found out the grade on our last paper..even though she said it would determine your next year's English class. Instead of teaching you how find key points in what you read, she tells you some phrases that SHOULD be in your paper. I am a female student and I did see her give less time/help to the guys in the class. Just wish she were better.
I really liked Mrs. Marietta, she gets into the books and makes them interesting! There wasn't much homework, aside from essays, and when she has homework, She gives out a lot of free points, so make sure you do it. She practically reads you sentences you can use in your essays so pay attention in class! and write a lot of notes! Stay on top of things and you'll be fine:)
When one thought that high school would finally begin to get easier, something to look forward to the next day, or at the very least a decent education experience, you will not be getting it with this teacher. She give atrocious amounts of work that she takes forever to grade, and backtracks students into reading 2 books at the same time while writing an essay. I used to LOVE English before her class but it's A freezing hell every day. Blatantly sexist towards males so guys give up on that A
She is horribly technologically impaired. I sat in the front of the class and a quiet good hardworking student, i was continually picked on. She assigns papers, grades the hell out of it, and forces you to redo it. Nobody in my class had A's in class except for the girls which leads me to believe she is sexist.
I had her years ago and she is my favorite english teacher. She inspired to pursue writing as a career and encouraged my potential. It's true she takes a while to get her papers back but it is because she goes through them and shows you where you need to improve. She doesn't settle for "getting through" the papers, she grades them. Taking her class more than adequately prepared me for college English. I still use many of the methods she taught me. Pay attention, do your work, and you'll learn.
Could be a great teacher...if she taught. Her feedback on papers is too late to help you on your next essay. Trabuco Hills loses a lot of potentially great English students in 9th grade. Instead of teaching...just trying to make their #s look good. Just think how much better your program would be if this teacher took time w/students. Murrieta never stays late to help students. Lots of knowlege...but her head is in retirement already...move on already.
She is extremely passionate about her books lemme tell you...she's nice when you do your work and makes boring books actually sound interesting.
she is a wonderful sweet woman, but not the best english teacher. she cannot/refuses to use a computer. she does not grade papers fast enough. she only gives her opinion, so basically all our papers a
Had her last year for freshman English AP. She doesn't grade your paper fast enough to help you on your next writing assignment. True..she forgot to recommend to Honors english.Parents had to request
she wasnt the worst teacher i ever had but i dreaded going to her class everyday. she favorites females and is technologically illiterate. only good thing is that she isn't mean at all.
I absolutely do not like her. She favors female students and she refused to recommend me to honors. She even forgot to put me for extra credit slips. I would take Berner if I had the choice.
she was the best english teacher ive had. she made my love english.
If you miss a day, she doesn't tell you everything you missed and it messes you up on a later project. Tells you exact points she wants in essay..you don't learn to figure it out for yourself.
Takes a long time to grade and return essays. Absolutely favors female students. Missed the deadline to recommend students for next years Honors class. Past time for her to retire.
I had her two years for freshman honor and cp junior. One of the top 3 most useful classes I had in high school. Tough as can be but it really paid off in college.
She is...in the middle of, "I want to jump off a cliff" and, "Okay, okay, I can do this." Stay off of her bad side, do all your work. Put effort into your work, she might have you read it out loud.
she can be nice but she is WAY too hard. She doesn't want to understand where anyone besides her is coming from. Its obnoxious sometimes. Not my favorite teacher.
a hard class but you learn a lot if you pay attention. not very many opportunities to bring your grade up if you do bad on an essay or test. take lots of notes in the books you read!
She made English a blast! She prepaired well for tests and made sure you understood the work. Grading on essays can be a little tough, but you can easily get a good grade. Study for the final!
unless you are a honors student girl, you have no chance of getting an A. Essays are hard and the work is tiresome. Just sit in the back and throw things at your friends. Be nice to her.
hardest class ever. 28 of her 60 english 3 students had summer school. too strict
she's so adorable, gotta love her! passionate about teaching, good teacher
Learned more from her than from my honors Eng. classes. She prepared me well to become an Eng. major at UC Berkeley. Thoughtful, bright & fun teacher who is passionate about lit. Love her!
She is very very hard but a wonderful teacher...Trabucos not going to be the same.
sweet teacher, gotta say ill miss her next year hope to get her as junior, read the books it really helps although odyssey was really not worth it and she said that too at the end
I think Mrs. Marietta is one of the best teacher's I've ever had. You really learn a lot and she is a really sweet little old lady.
love her and her potatos!! learned more from her than any other teacher all through high school. really gets you ready for essays. in class essays atre hard.
thinks shes funny but shes not. she repeats her terrible jokes all the time. also gives a lot of work and forgets about it.
she's funny and always made me laugh with her stupid jokes. she's a tough grader and assigns A LOT of work, but she's really cool and not a mean lady at all. SHE NEVER MARKED ANYONE TARDY! :)
I LOVE HER OMG. <3 She's my favorite teacher ever, and if you work hard, you'll love her.
You will learn how to write an essay in the class-she even tells you what to write!! Just take notes and do the homework! You'll learn a lot if you just listen.
good luck...shes pretty hard like no one gets an A in her jr year english class...you will deff know how to write by the end of the year tho
shes really fun and a little silly sometimes. the kind of teacher who can also be a friend. not too hard, but study. ask questions if you dont understand stuff.
Very good teacher you really learn alot. She is by far the best english teacher I have ever had. There is alot of work though. PS. I had her for 2 years.
ok she might give out a lot a work but she is completely awesome
1 of my fave teachers. so funny & nice. we both <3 books so i liked her. not 2 good w/ the confuser lol. shes a kneeslapper. i loved her. best eng teacher ever!
ummm wow these people who say shes easy are nuts!!! shes like the hardest teach i have ever had in my life...and shes way boring
second week of school and i already hate her...going to be a very very long year...
SHE TEACHES WELL, ASK HER FOR HELP OR YOULL FAIL- PROMISE!!SHE LOVES HER STUDENTS AND WANTS YOU TO SUCCEED.
Marietta's probably one of the best teachers ever. But it could go either way for each student: to like her or to not like her... but never in between.
She is an awesome teacher. Everyone who doesn't like her just doesn't want to put the time in. She is difficult but you learn a lot! 50 lashes with a wet noodle
the best teacher ive ever had mrs. marietta taught me more in a month than i usually learn in a year please DO NOT take it for granted
She is a horrible teacher, does not explain things thouroughly and when she tries make it more confusing.
THIS IS ONE HECK OF A GOOD TEACHER. she's soo cool, and helps you with whatever you want. the best english teacher!
its not college so stop saying you are treating us how we will be treated in college..... hard teacher way to much homework
hahah she always says Peas and carrots peas and carrots
my fav teacher in the world. just listen and u will do well. u will learn lots and she is pretty understanding.
Not an easy class, but she's a good teacher. If you tried, you could really learn a lot from her.
Hard but if you pay attention you will do really well. The vocab sucks though
A lot of homework...every single night including weekends. Lots of essays!
