Is it any wonder why she was essentially forced into retirement? She would get walked on by a small minority of students in our class, which is unfortunate, but then she would take it out on the whole class by refusing to teach for the rest of the day, citing that we can come in at 7AM (even though we could have class), and learn then. That's not our responsibility. She'll be nice to you if you're nice to her, but make no mistake, she's a horrible teacher.

She is brief with all her lessons, and does not explain the different steps of the problems well. "Do this, then that" is her usual take on lessons. She once taught a whole unit wrong, and then told us a day later of her mistake. We had to redo the homework assignment from last night, and the assignment for the day she clarified her mistake. She gives out a lot of homework, especially on holidays. In short, she is not the best teacher for Geometry/Algebra 2.

Not the best teacher. She lets her students walk all over her and has no control over the classroom. She's not a bad person, though. If you respect her, she will respect you. Try to listen when she's lecturing, and always do your homework. She'll be more likely to help you.

Mrs. Prezzano really helped me last year. She is actually super nice and helpful if you want to learn.

Not a great teacher and does not have very good skills with working with her students. The material was luckly, easy because she would not be able to be organize and focused enough to help everyone.

Despite what many say, Prezzano is a nice lady. Nice, kind, and respectful to those who respect her. I had her 9th grade; she answered my questions politely and I was able to understand everything she taught. In this class, people must pay attention to her. Tip- don't talk during her lectures.

Doesn't teach well, doesn't answer questions clearly, and has some form of bipolarity. Super nice one day and evil the other.
