Ms. Bisconti is a great teacher if you work hard. She clearly loves what she does and cares about her students. She is unlike any other teacher I have had in a good way. Her tests are hard and there is a ton of work, but if you study the right way, you will do fine. You have to study, or else the class is impossible. She wants the very best from her students and cares about every one of them. She is a great teacher who really knows and is passionate about world history.

BISCONTIKHAN IS AMAZING!! Some students will hate her class if they don't work hard, if you dont you will fail. If you put in the work, extra detail, and pay attention she will love you and you will love her! She encourages you and motivates you. She cares so much about her students and will do anything and everything for them. I LOVE her class and look forward to it every day.

Ms. Bisconti made me fall in love with world history. She's so passionate about history and makes her students excited about learning. Yes, she does give a lot of homework, but it takes more time to complain about it than to actually do it. Ms. Bisconti really cares about her students, so if you ever need help, just ask her and she really clarifies whatever you're confused about. I loved having her. Best teacher ever.

The absolute best teacher I've ever had. Her class prepared me so much. In eighth grade, she wasn't my favorite teacher because she killed us with work. Now, I'm so grateful I had her. Her class was harder than my History class was the next year! I was so prepared and she was the sweetest teacher ever, just didn't take any crap.

Ms. Bisconti is the most knowledgable teacher I have ever had. They need to step up their game. Ms. BIsconti prepares you for high school and real life very well. Her class really interactive and fun. When we learned about the Lascaux Caves, she built a cave in our classroom. Ms. Bisconti is the best teacher I have ever had. We also did a news report where each group had a major event leading to Rome''s fall. She is very creative and funny, and even though she gives a lot of work she's the best.

You had to work hard to get an A in her class, but she made learning actually enjoyable. She taught me more than just about History, but also about important things that I wont' ever forget.

She is an impossible teacher! Good luck if you have her because her tests are really long and hard and she explains information so fast you can't even understand what she says. Plus the second you get in the room she expects you to be ready and have all your materials ready do go. But we all just sat down! She's really annoying and expects all her students to do perfect.

awesome teacher. Biscontikhan was the craziest, most energetic teacher ever. She is a little too tough on her students and averaging an A in that class is darn near impossible. I would like her a lot more if she would teach another subject( I HATE SOCIAL STUDIES)and if I had her later in the day( I am always exhausted in the morning and all I want to do is lie down, but she likes to yell "GOOD MORNING CLASS" as loud as a jet engine. If you ask me, I think she drinks pure caffine inthemornin
