03/26/14 - I hate Ms. Cella, because she hates me, and because she is strict, rude and grades subjectively. But I will admit she is very knowledgable, helpful and dedicated. She is harsh, yes, but she strives to educate her students to the best of her ability. Show More Show Less

09/12/13 - I am a parent. I want all kids or parents who read this to take heed....the woman cannot teach. She throws work at the kids, expects them to know how to read old english Shakespeare (and assigns an act of macbeth each night, giving an exam the next day, without going over it in class) without teaching, and focuses on odd, extraneous details. She emails kids over the weekend and will assign an additional 3 hours of work...just because. If you are in her class, do get out quickly! Show More Show Less

03/28/13 - i began her class on her good side (she picks clear favorites) and i spoke up in her class and made comments on what we were reading and stuff like that, and i passed the first two marking periods with easy A's. but i quickly became bored with her lessons, and her huge ego, she constantly yells at kids, picks on them, complains about the job she could have had, and the amazing life she has, despite her anger and frustration with everyone....

03/09/12 - She's all about self promotion, if she likes you, she will grade you fairly, if she despises you, she will fail you, in this case, she detests my class, and me as well, she called me out for drawing in her class!!! I don't remember doing that, my art was on the floor because I carried it from my art class before English class!!! She treats my class like a bunch of worthless hopeless inferior slaves, and boasts about her extreme big ego Show More Show Less

03/09/12 - ohhhhh my goodness, so I take A.P studio art, I come into Mrs. Cella's class, just chllin, have my art out, no colored pencils or anything out, and her first and final thoughts about me are that I sketch/draw DURING her class and assumes I am going to art school, she always judges every thing about me and thinks she can read my life story, but she doesn't know me, My artwork is out because I just carry it to all my 8 class periods, but don't "draw" in her class, she has upset me for 10 months...

03/04/12 - She has a fairly large ego, she doesn't like to help us, she gets pleasure by failing us, she won't give us a break and treats us like inferior worthless slaves, if you are placed into her class, good luck because one year with her is like working under a satan/devil Show More Show Less

01/24/12 - I have her class now, she isn't really a helpful motivating teacher to be honest, very strict and a bit condescending, I can tell she s fed up with my class and her job, she yells at us throughout the whole period everyday, her grading style isn't really fair in my opinion,doesn't make sense to be graded on how many times I log onto a school site. Assigning a quiz every day seems too fast paced as honors class. Don't talk back cuz she'll show her evil side. I've had better nicer english teachers Show More Show Less
