We don't use textbooks, onlt once a year we will, she isn't that clear when explaining even when I ask questions. She is funny, but how does she expect us to learn if we don't use textbooks? What I do like is that she doesn't guve up to try and make you understand something. Overall she is a good person but I don't think she's that clear and WE DON"T USE TEXTBOOKS OFTEN!!
An amazing teacher even if she is strict.
While she can be strict, she is a generally fun teacher if you behave. I loved her knowledge and passion of the subject. However she grades hard, but has a love for her students. :)
BUT! (HUGE WARNING))
While she liked me, don't EVER get on her bad side. She holds huge, long grudges. If you talk in class and don't care about the class, she can magically transform into a she-devil. and dont even THINK about having her ring the silence bell more than once.
I really didn't like her. She always complained to us about how we make everything harder for her. Grades every one low and makes us do things that don't coincide with anything we've been doing. Shes strict, mean, and has no mercy. Watch out!!
Mean and wants to fail everyone
She's a good teacher but she is such a hard grader. Once I did everything she said for a presentation and she gave me a 78.She is still a good teacher but don't get on her bad side.
I started my year on my best behavior, trying to get on all my teachers good sides, but for some reason, she hated me, and she admitted to it. I don't know what I did. On my third quarter, I had A's and B+'s and she gave me A D-! I had panic attacks because of this monster. If the entire class was talking, she would single me out and yell at me for talking. Looking back at the old reviews, she seemed nice,but I'm warning you, if you get on her bad side, get ready for one hell of a year!
Okay, so everyone here has been saying how mean she is, but honestly, she's only mean to people who misbehave. She really develops grudges against them. If you don't misbehave (which is hard, I know) then she's nice and hilarious and tells awesome stories.
not nice because she broke a stick on my desk and gave me a c
i luv mrs. silvestro! she's so funny when she tells stories, is really helpful in writing, and is super nice!!
I luv mrs. silvestro!! she's the best teacher ever! Jack is the coolest puppet, and i also luv her noise makers, esp. the flute-thing. im not saying this b/c i have good grades in la (b/c i dont). :-)
Her noise makers are awesome! She's kinda boring but she's nice and if you get on her good side you'll have a pretty cool year.
she yelled at me on the top of her lungs and now she's like not talking to me
She is one of the best English tachers i've ever had. She's soooo nice! Mrs. Silvestro sings to try and make us work. She ROCKS!
she's srict, but really cool... i love all your noise makers
She's strict but a really good teacher. YELLOW LA 2004-2005 rocked!
No one works harder and cares more than Mrs. Silvestro. She rocks! AND she's funny, especially when she sings and tries to get us to WORK!!
OMG MRS.SILVESTERO WAS ONE OF THE BEST TEACHERS I EVER HAD SHE WAS SOOOOOOO NICE AND HELPFULL I LOVED HER CLASS.
she is a good teacher she is tough she gave me a bad grade and I am not saying how bad she is every one else should be ashamed!!!!!!!!
I liked her. But I don't know about other people. She was good, but...not the best. She's nice though and I enjoyed having her.
