Apr 23, 2014 Mrs. Cleary is a really hard teacher, and she really makes you work however it pays off in the end. Plus, her hints with SAT critical reading are super helpful, and it really pays off. Flag Rating

Oct 01, 2013 She was nice as long as you were paying attention and actively participating. She had some of her favorites and she would sometimes jokingly mock some of the other students but you knew that she didn't mean it. You could easily pass and get good grades if you paid attention and she was fairly helpful (I didn't really speak to her one on one often but she was nice when I did). A very good teacher!

May 17, 2012 she thinks she's tough but in actuality she is very self centered and her grading is illogical. Flag Rating

Nov 08, 2011 she dislikes/judges many kids in early on without getting to know them. If you ask her a question she won't answer it, she'll make you solve it yourself and mocks you Flag Rating

Feb 23, 2011 The most wonderful teacher I've ever had. She deeply cares about her students, but doesn't coddle or pick favorites. I learned more in her class than any other class I've ever taken. You'll work hard but you'll be better f Flag Rating

May 22, 2010 The Clearinator isn't the easiest teacher, but no doubt she's insanely helpful. If you have her, your English would improve tremendously. However, when grading essays, she's not too clear and often makes you fend for yourself Flag Rating

Aug 27, 2009 Where do I even start-- there are just so many positive things to write about Mrs. Cleary. Though she was strict at times, and extremely difficult, too, she was always a helpful teacher who knew the material and how to teach. Flag Rating
