Listen everybody, yeah the class is hard but honestly it's up to us students to work hard in class with a teacher that might not see as you might. Shes not a bad teacher at all, but it can be hard to get a good grade.

Although the majority of opinions on Mrs. Baranoski are not all that positive, I found her class enjoyable. She seems to genuinely care about English and is more than happy to help you if you ask. At times she can be a bit condescending, but if you can get past that and understand that most of the work she has you do helps in some way, then English with her is a positive experience. Might just be from my own personal experiences, but I think Mrs. Baronoski is a great teacher.

Joy Baranoski will go down as the worst teacher I have had at East Grand Rapids High School. She represents everything that is wrong with school. She is the english department head, strictly because of seniority. She makes learning the anti-fun, and most of the time a large pain. She's rude to her students, treats them as less than inferior, refuses to take criticism or advice, and is overall just a mean person. I fear if she doesn't shape up, she could cause serious mental issues to a student.

I can honestly say that I came out of that class even less knowledgeable then I went in. Had her for three semesters, and she absolutely HATES my guts. More of the professor type. She can be a real b**** about everything. She made us do essays, tests, homework, and grammer work EVERY WEEK. If you have the option, SWITCH TO MRS. MICHEL. Joy is a living example of what an English teacher SHOULDN'T BE. Greeted us with "Hello, Friends!" every day. SHE'S NOT MY FRIEND. Classmates back me up.

MRs. Baranoski could give two craps about her students and that probably the reason half of the people in her class give up. She's never even tried to get us to like her shes a very bland mean teacher. Her grading makes no sense and her test are just a joke and basically impossible. She's one of those teachers that doesn care wether or not you succeed, Just a brat.

She is not helpful, she is always mean and sarcastic at inappropriate times, and she is just simply a bad teacher. She does not prepare classes well for tests at all. She should stop teaching, because it is clearly not something she was meant to do.
