Worked after school with students on her own time to get them caught up. Returned my call in a timely manners. I felt she really cared about my child in her class. One of the best teachers at Key West High School. I appreciate her hard work and caring attitude. Thank you, Ms. Blanco!!!
This was an excellent class. Thank you!
Makes reading fun. Strongly recommend.
Excellent! Good experience.
I loved this class. We read sooooo much in this class. The best part was the class discussion and how we really dug deep to get into the meaning of the book. The writing workshops helped me a lot. I write better essays because i know how to set it up. THis is really how an egnlish class is supposed to be, not just busy work. If you want to go to college, i think this class will really help you. Thank you, Ms. Blanco for being a good teacher and taking the times to make sure we get it.
This teacher cares about the students. She really showed me how to like reading and how to think about it. I also feel better prepared for college bc i learned how to write essays very well. I would really recommend this fun and good course to any student who cares about his/her future. oh and the fcat thing whi h went to our small email group was not a big deal. We love her and her class! Five stars!!
Will explain it until you get it. Very high expectations. If you like to play on your cell phone or sleep during class, this class not for you.
One thing about this class is that it's not a walk in the park; meaning you actually have to do work to get a good grade. That's why she is an English honors teacher and she will only give you work that she knows you are capable of doing. Her grading is fair, and she is actually very understanding when it comes to make up work. I think she is one of the best teachers at kwhs, who at times is tough on you but she only does it when you are not reaching your full potential that she knows you have.
My friend just told me about this website. I was in Ms. Blanco's class all last year. I feel she really had high standards and made me want to do the work. Yes, there is a lot of writing and reading. If you aren't into that, you won't be happy in this English class. The best part I liked was the skits we did for the plays we read. That was a lot of fun. I highly recommend this class to other students at Key West High. This is one of the best English classes I have taken at this school.
This class prepared me for college. If you want an easy A dont take this class. I learned how to be a good writer and how to analyze literature. I got exactly what i needed out of this class. I think the low ratings on here are from people who just dont want to be challenged. Keep up the good work, Ms. Blanco! I loved your class. One of the best teachers at key west high school.
It depends on what class you take. She is a very good teacher for Literature. For English class, she is a horrible teacher.My son did not learn a thing. All he was told was to go online if he had a question about English. She thinks she has the most important class in the whole school. Will not stop arguing when the math teacher had to hold him in longer for 5 minutes for an exam. The 5 minutes that she sits at her desk.
she gives busy work , when you ask for help she acts like your supposed to already know. and the whole "office hours" thing is getting old
I had her for 8th and 9th english.I agree that she just seems to give busy work.. That and our class always seemed to be interrupted by cheerleaders that she would hang with during class.
i really didn't enjoy her or her class. i felt that miss blanco did not teach but just gave her student busy work to pass the time so she didnt have to do any work.
