WHAT A QUEEN. BEST lady ever. So fashionable, funny, relatable, and sassy.
Mrs.Palotay is my favorite teacher I have ever had. She really cares about you as a student as long as you talk to her and express what you need. I will never have a teacher like her. She is so inspirational and keeps you working hard. She is a tough teacher but, I cannot complain. She is one of the reasons I am who I am today.
Mrs. Palotay is quite bias and grades very hard. She knows her stuff but does not focus her attention on actually teaching her students. Instead, she will rush to get ahead of Tompkins or get off track about politics. I once did a study group on a project with some friends that were in a different period and we basically all had the same information but different wording. She gave all of us different scores that ranged from Cs to As depending on how much she liked us.
She's just not good with kids. I gave a nice review earlier this year because I've kept an A in her class thoug h it was extremely difficult. If you're absent myou get almost no time to make up work. I haven't gone below a B+ but for a History CP class this is so much work load. Everyone prefers Ms. Tomkins so I'll say if you have a choice choose her.
Good teacher but very hard, If you have a choice go to Ms. Tompkins
Ms. Palotay is one of my favorite teachers. She really gets you thinking outside of the box and is constantly posing philosophical questions. Gets us thinking of the bigger picture and relating things to our own lives. I find her work straightforward if you have a relative understanding of the class. I believe she cares about our success in the class and in life. She is super knowledgable about what she teaches and is really nice and I have found it easy to get a long with her.
By far an extremely knowledgeable teacher who is EXTREMELY intimidating because the classroom is ALWAYS silent unless she wants it to be otherwise. Definitely a qualified and helpful teacher but quite a STRICT grader. All your participation points get taken away if you talk about anything other than history during class which gives good motive for everyone to follow instructions s.
Honestly one of the best teachers I've ever had, she's a great teacher and opens your mind to new thoughts. 100% recommend her over any other history teacher at Westlake
SO engaging and knowledgeable; she makes learning very easy and also fun. She intimidates some, but you just have to grow a backbone and take it. WHS is easily made 100x better by her, not only by her BEAUTY, but her hilarious personality as well. The best teacher ive had in my 4 years.
Amazing teacher who cares about her students and can introduce knowledge in the easiest and funniest way for students to understand. All in all perfect
Greatest teacher I've ever had. Greatest women I've ever known. Ms Palotay is a god. She is helpful, caring, so funny, and all in all perfect.
Ok she went crazy but she knows how to teach and she can be soooooo sweet toooooo
Best teacher you could ask for a student. She really cares about students. She is extremely helpful.
Class: AP US History, If Westlake High School is to brag about their teacher's, Ms. Palotay would be one of the first choices. She is a very helpful teacher, knows A LOT about history, very clear, humorous, "strict" when she needs to be, I mean her class is a college classroom. You do the work and she gives you what you deserve with enormous amounts of feedback on papers so you can improve. Overall 10/10, and to top it off, she's hot so it's not hard to pay attention to her :)
Palotay is one of my favorite teachers by far and she made my experience within her class wonderful.
AMAZING teacher. She is ridiculously knowledgeable and knows her stuff. She makes sure each and every student masters the material, and though her class is a lot of work, it's manageable. No busy work. Don't be intimidated by her, either; she's really nice & FUNNY!
Ms. Palotay's AP history class feels like a real college classroom. She doesn't assign busy work, and spends a lot of time teaching us in class and making good use of our time. Nobody ever in my class has left to "use the restroom" because she is constantly talking and instructing. She has great knowledge of US history and can answer any question you ask her. She is always available, responds to emails quite fast, and even gives up hours of her time after school/weekends before APs for extr help
Very knowledgeable, and has a good sense of humor. Granted, the class is difficult (LOTS of studying and time-consuming work) but not too much busy work, which I appreciate. But I must admit that she is slightly intimidating and I think my blood pressure is rather high when I'm in her class....just saying.
Best history teacher I've ever had. I only had her for World History CP but i got an A both semesters because she makes class so interesting.
Ms. Palotay really knows how to teach well. Her notes are very informative and help a lot towards the tests. The class is a lot of work, but the stress totally is worth it when you get a 5 on the AP. Favorite teacher ever.
(continued) helpful, and flat-out awesome than Ms. Palotay. Students who can pay attention well, study reasonably, and live through some stress have nothing to fear, and only high scores to look forward to! In retrospect, I'm hugely thankful to have been a part of the class.
So here I am, returning
