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.
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!
she thinks she's tough but in actuality she is very self centered and her grading is illogical.
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
Favorite teacher ever! She's so nice and she really takes time to get to know all of her students. I've benefited so much from being in her class this year.
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
Mrs. Cleary was a wonderful teacher, I hope to have her again senior year!!
i had mrs. clearly 2 years ago, and i kept all her grammar hints writing tips and i did amazingly well on the SAT's portion an 11 on the essay which i completely owe to her. an amazing woman, difficult, but amazing
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
Mrs. Cleary is great! She really improved my writing and grammar skills. She's hard, but an amazing teacher!
This woman is the reason I have such good writing skills had did so well on my SATs.
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.
Really tough teacher but you learn so much! she is one of the best english teachers ever. She will support you through out high school if you reach out to her for help:)
she is not an easy teacher but that is what i liked about her. she was an amazing teacher for writing skills. i think i did so well on my sats and got into college with a good essay because of her. THANKS!
She's nice. I had her for SAT prep class last year. It's pretty helpful
omg she is the nicest person in the high school. shes hard but she will help you in english and she wants to help
ahhhhh i LOVE her....she raised my SAT writing score 110 points more than my PSAT score just from english 10 honors...she was AMAZING =) if u get her, u are LUCKY!!! but, she can be really hard......just stay on her good side
Oh I adore Joan Cleary!!!!!!!!!! The work is good for you, I promise.
great teacher. she's one of my favorites. very knowledgeable about what she teaches, so if u get her, ur in safe hands.
Mrs. Cleary will make you laugh with her dry wit, and learn with her clear teaching. Great English teacher, but she grades a bit too hard.
great teacher--you'll like her in the end. a lot of homework though
difficult while you have her, but you will love her afterwards. she did seem to take off for little things, which was frustrating, but she is so sweet.
she's THE coolest teacher ever. it's great to have a teacher with such a sense of humor
ehh, gentlemen; everything is in ink; honesty statements!
She is a very good teacher overall. I don't know why people try to blame her for stuff. I just wish she would grade my essays easier and not take off for spelln
I love Mrs. Cleary. she would do anything for her students. She is probably one of the best if not the best teacher in Monty High!! SHE'S AWESOME!!
doesn't really teach us how to do things like write essays.. but she's really nice
Mrs. cleary, youre cool, but i can never write a good enough essay for you any tips?
Mrs. Cleary is a very nice person who genuinely wants to help her students. She goes out of her way to be available to them for extra help, and while she can be strict, it is only for the benefit of her students. She teaches very well.
really nice but not great at english--3 solecisms in one period
She is a great teacher who cares for the success of all her students.
Cleary, if you give me a good grade on the essay, these ratings will increase
She is a great and influential teacher,but SAT Prep needs to get more interestin
needs to make SAT prep more interesting instead of droning on and on and on
amazing person-wonderful, ambitious teacher who cares about the success of kids.
Doesn't realize the pointless busy work only has people hate English not like it
Mrs. Cleary is soo nice. Just b/c you failed her class don't complain
