If I could choose a teacher to hand me my diploma at graduation, I'd choose her. She got me pumped up for English, even though I don't even like the subject. Such a shame she won't be teaching here anymore. Have fun in Idaho, Mrs. R!

She always made the honors english class such an awesome experience! She made sure that we could understand the material. I loved the quarter trios we had, bit it's so sad that she won't be teaching next year. I'm going to miss her so much!

She is definitely the best teacher I've ever had. She grades hard and expects a lot but, what do you expect with an honors class? She also gives very little homework. If you ever need help she is super easy to talk to.

She is a great teacher. Definitely don't switch out if you get her. Yes, her tests are hard, and yes, she grades difficult, but great overall prep for my sophomore year. Don't get discouraged if she gives you a bad grade for your essay or you do badly on your test, because she also shows you how to fix those errors and improve to do better. She may seem "crazy" to people, but trust me, it's crazy in a good way :) As long as you pay attention in class and know what to study for, you'll do fine.

To this day, Ms. Randazzo remains my favorite teacher. If you get her, DO NOT SWITCH. She is friendly with her students and genuinely cares about whether you understand something or not. She's strict enough and I've never had any problems with her. If you do the work and study, the tests are completely fair. If you never read the books or material, obviously you're going to say it's difficult. She makes her own powerpoints too and explains very well. Randazzo is amazing!

Seriously one of the best Language Arts teachers I've had. Though she grades essays with great scutiny, she lets you do correction which help A TON! We even had a huge talk one day about how the 20Time project impacted us and how much it taught us about not only ourselves but the nature of the educational system we have today and how it impacts how we think.

Best English teacher I've ever had. Easygoing, tests can be kind of hard if you don't know the material, so work hard. You need to learn fast how to analyze and support in essays (in class essays). Learned a lot, as long as you try can do well

In the beginning of the year I was really intimidated by her because she said that this class was going to be hard and a challenge. However, she's just so fabulous and amazing at teaching that I'm doing very well and have a solid A in her class! I haven't learned this much about language arts-she makes it so interesting and fun. I used to hate English but now every day I can't wait to walk into her classroom! Beware: her tests are pretty killer though, except for the final.

She is funny and nice, but her class is probably one of the hardest classes I have. It totally ruined my GPA - however, you learn a lot. She grades the hardest on writing. (I've never gotten below an A in writing until freshman year.)

She is a very knowledgeable teacher, and also a very good teacher. However, if writing is not something you are interested in, this isn't the class for you. I have gotten A's and B's on my essays in every other grade except ninth, where I have gotten 2 B's and a D. Only one semester has passed, and she has pretty much ruined my chances for getting into one of the top colleges. She is great, but she takes her grading a little bit TOO seriously, and I think she should go a little bit easier on us.

I absolutely loved her class. I'm not really an english person but this was one of my favorite classes anyway. She actually teaches, but always adds humor into the mix. And she loves Harry Potter and hates Twilight, if that scores points with any of you (it did with me xD). Just be organized, turn in your stuff on time, and do your best on the inclass essays, and you will definitely get a good grade.

Randazzo is the best teacher that I have ever had. She knows what will keep students interested and entertained. Instead of just lecturing and making us take notes, she infuses her lessons with her love for English, teaching, and kids. She grades a little harshly, but she's fair, and she'll explain what you can improve on if you ask.

I have never had such a fantastic teacher as Ms. Randazzo. She doesn't just teach--she brings her enthusiasm and passion for English to the class everyday, she brightens the class atmosphere, and she knows how to teach...and teach well. Looking back at my H Frosh English experience, I can proudly say that I've learned an invaluable set of skills from that single class. Although we all struggled through our first couple in-class essays (and hopefully learned how to pick ourselves back up after the first few
