I really liked Mrs. Chufo and would totally recommend her as a teacher. She teaches us how to write, how to correctly annotate, and prepares us for the future.

I took creative writing class but the homework load was definitely not that of an elective. Sometimes i find myself walking more hours on a writing assignment for an elective than i do for Alg/Trig H. Chufo is a nice teacher overall, but i really want to tell her ,please stop talking about your triplets. I really, really do not care about them. The cute thing they do? Sorry, nothing to do with me.
I've always disliked the teachers who expect their students to be interested in their daily life.

I was really disappointed with the amount of actual writing in Chufo's class. She spent way too long on the poetry unit and we only had a couple of writing assignments that did not help me be a better writer. Her class is seemingly easy, but she grades harshly on topics she barely teaches. Chufo is really funny and nice and therefore spends most of her class talking about her life or about future projects.

She is pretty confusing and doesn't teach much grammar or writing. Not the best teacher in the world. You're better off doing some English tutoring off-campus.

One of the absolute best teachers I've ever had. I took Creative Writing, and she is one of those few remarkable teachers who actually supports your creativity and has this amazing rule of "you can break the rules in assignments if you can defend the break." Count ourself lucky if you have her as a teacher!

Chufo is one of my favorite teachers- her insight on every book we read is a great learning tool. She sees students in a different way and does not treat them as inferiors like many teachers do. She is chill and relaxed and definitely the best english teacher you could have for honors 9. my only complaint is the number of graded assignments- It would be really nice if we had more things in the grade book, so our scores don't entirely count on only a few items. Thanks for being a great teacher.

Ms.Chufo is fabulous. The first day I walked into her class, I thought she was a bit loony, but looking bad she has stretched my mind and helped me in ways I didn't think were possible. Yes, she did BS some of the grading on the essays, but I'm not complaining! She has an ENORMOUS portion on her plate with triplets, the Nest, and her son's amputation, but she does the best she can. She's amazing at peeling layers of a book and making others understand the deeper aspects of literature.

I had Chufo for English Honors 9 as well as the Business Management class and I really respect her. Though we've disagreed on some things, what I really about Chufo is that she treats her students as equals. She puts so much effort into her teaching and you can really tell that teaching is more than just a way of making money for her. She's hard working and I would love to have her again. Go Chufo! - J.C.

She didn't read all the essays. It was ridiculous. She would take literally 3 months to grade the essay and then she wouldn't even read all of them. She was really really lazy on most of her grading. Her quizzes are really irritating and stupid. Usually I don't like kids who complain that the teacher gives them bad grades because she doesn't like them, but in this case it is really true. She only reads the essays from the students that she likes. Get on her good side if you want an A.
