She gets really into what she's teaching. Really picky when it comes to grading. I agree, if it's not her way, then it's wrong. The same applies to class discussion (opinions). It's obvious she plays favorites. If you're getting good grades on her essays and she's always willing to listen/help you, then she likes you. That means you'll also probably get an A. However, if you're one of those average students (to her), etc, then good luck.
grades everything hard, nothing you can really do to improve except pray
She knows exactly what she wants. Whenever she grades something, she wants it written her way or you will definetely get a bad grade. She is a little bit psycho, and laughs at her own jokes. Luckily, she likes me, and I am getting an A in her class. However, As are very hard to come by. She is a super tough grader, but doesn't actually teach us anything. There's alot of textbook reading and pre-made worksheets.
Shes a bitter and overly favoritist woman. First impression is everything with her, if u dont do well on the first essay you are pretty much screwed. She has no regard to helping you keep your grade up. She doesn't explain much if anything in class. She's lazy, and a harsh grader. That pretty much covers it.
Pretty cool teacher, tough class... She's cool in her own way, unlike most other teachers, she KNOWS the subject she is teaching, I mean KNOWS... I sucked at english before this, but she taught me how to write good essays, and she actually improved my grammar and stuff... As long as you provide evidence like quotes to support your details, you're fine, no rambling though... I like her English class a lot, getting a B . As long as you do your work you will do fine. I have her for 12th, and sometimes I sleep.
Her classes are not easy, mostly because she will teach you how to write the way colleges expect. Very passionate about the subject. She has some personality quirks but the class is informative and will definitely prepare you for AP.
she's hard but she'll get you ready for the ap exam... i got a 5
She will teach in the literal sense of the word, and she has writing down to a science. Do not expect an easy time in the class...full score on essays are virtually unheard of. She also has her quirks (ex. laughing every two minutes), and does not explain things well the first time, but will try to clarify and make you understand.
She gives very low grades on essays and everything else that she grades.She doesn't teach a thing and never stops laughing. She is worst english teacher i've ever had.
Although she is helpful when you seek her out, Ms. Avilles is unclear with what she wants sometimes and she often gives out poor grades if something is not done exactly how she likes it. At times, her class is one of my easiest classes, but at other times, it can be rather difficult.
why does she grade hard in an academic class....hey, i like her laugh!
Why do people not like her? All you have to do is follow her instructions and try your best. She is hard but she also teaches very well. Her stories are amusing :)
She encourages people to raise their hand but...when you get it wrong, you get punished. I hate her, as does just about everyone else.
I don't kno y some ppl hates her... all you have to do is sit back and listen to what she has to say, it's really interesting and it helps you to understand lit
She laughs a lot. But isn't that a good thing? Very nice and personable.
her teaching is extremely dull, lectures are boring and she laughs for half the period. never explains anything...just shoves piles of worksheets in ur face
just talks and talks- i take in about half of what she says
she's so great! i learned so much & had alot of great discussions
I've really begun to appreciate the class, and literature. THANK YOU MRS AVILES
If you guys only had a brain, you could pass her class.....
librarian.. haha. just when u thought the media center people couldnt be worse..
I love her class! She is a great teacher and I am learning a lot from her
She's so nice and so much fun. We never get bored in her class:)
i can't believe i made it through a whole year with her!
Please don't remind me of her class...she is definately not a worthwhile teacher
take a nap in her class, cause ure not going to learn a thing anyway.
she is way too obsessed with the oak tree in thanatopsis
take her with a grain of salt, shes really a good teacher, and person
she is the greatest teacher i've ever had... just kidding. we all hate her
A bit crazy, if you ask me, but she's passionate and knows her literature.
laughs too much, grades very harsly,plays faves, grades on how much she likes u
im telling you .. this teacher knows everything. Very intelligent and insightful
Great teacher, very knowledgeable in literature, and a very nice person!
She laughs, but she has some pretty insightful things to say! shes a nice person
She needs to stop laughing, and grade easier on her essays.
if only she would stop laughing incessently and would actually teach
she juss doesn't know what she's doing. and she laughs too much
Maybe if she graded on something besides her mood, she could be a good teacher..
