As a student that genuinely tries in every class, I can't say the same for this class. Half the class is usually sleeping because she just talks about random things that aren't even relevant to the topic or the book we're reading. She tends to talk over you, even if you have a question or your hand raised. I don't think I've actually learned anything useful since September and that's a shame because I was really looking forward to reading The Scarlet Letter but she makes it so boring.
She told our class she's been teaching at BTHS since 1997. Thats a looong time, but it doesnt really mean anything. Sometimes she does have random assignments but i think she does try to incorporate various lessons at once , but its manageble. Everything on her test is exactly what she teaches in class, so just try your best to listen. This class is an easy 85.
A very sweet old lady who teaches romantic english, (at least that's what we are learning atm). Many people say she is boring, but I believe english in general is just boring. She doesn't grade that much, tries to teach the best she can, and overall a decent teacher. Raise your hand often, and I think you'll get an 85+ easy.
A very insipid, lackadaisical teacher. She has no lesson plans, doesn't follow a curriculum. she's lazy. unfair grader too. i wrote a detailed 2 pgs, friend wrote 2 lousy paragraphs. we got the same grade, wtf?
Ms.Petriccione is by far one of the most useless teachers I've ever had. She can't teach. She rambles in class and never follows the curriculum. I've learned nothing for the past 5 months. She will just read books in class and incorporate random ideas that won't help you on the regent, or SAT. She is a very peevish grader. She will emphasize the most trivial mistakes on your paper to make it seem like your paper is heavily flawed. You have to put in effort to pass the class. It's not a free 95.
Unfair grader. Became really hard with the grades. Never updates Skedula. Does nothing in class, nor do the students. Don't learn anything.
Ms. Petriccione, though she is very sweet, is the most useless teacher I've ever had. She is unbelievably forgetful and too lenient on her students. I have learned absolutely nothing from her class. Also, she is very very boring. Good luck staying awake in her class.
welll she is very easy but doesnt teach at all. She will assign projects and then forget it about it and brings it up like 3 month later and tells you to do it last minute. And she always gets boring and off topic
Her class is so boring, doesn't teach anything, but she gives good grades! :)
She is a teacher, Ive had her for 2 years now and i dont expect this 2nd year to be that great. I had her around the same time in the day and always fell asleep, being more concerned for my grade now i dont fall asleep but one time I did nothingbut sleep and got a 55, her grading methods are not that great. If i wrote 50 questions and a friend of mine wrote 23 why does he get an 85 and i get an 80? I really wanted a different teacher as SATs are coming and ill need the help but ill have togetby.
Class feels like an eternity, super boring. Don't like her as a teacher, kind of annoying actually
BORING. She never gives back homeworks. Or she gives them back like 3 months later.
Eh she's okay. She tries to be funny at times but she really isn't. I appreciate her effort though. She's a nice teacher since I slept in her class almost every single day but she knows that I do the work so I got an 85.
she is very irresponsible and boring. she claimed that i didnt give in my final projects, but i did and she failed me and caused me to go to summer school even when i had proof i did the projects!!!!
not very helpful and gives us projects and assignments randomly
shes too nice, funny sometimes.. i love her little actings of books and her english accent. shes so interesting and shes a great teacher. love her :D
Ms P is my favorite teacher this year. A lot of people don't like her because she talks a lot and assigns the most random projects ever, but she's always trying to help students out in any way she can
Great teacher. If u participate she makes ur grade higher. Her tests are hard but not unbearable. If ur a freshman going into her class, Watch out for test 1 so study for it. Otherwise great teacher.
She talks too much, and makes us clap for her for the most random stuff ever. Not as funny as she might think she is.
Awesome teacher. Talks too much though. Try to spend less time on the announcements and more on the class work please. She's very intelligent.
Had her twice. She's really nice and interesting. Loved her class. She's funny but a little strange.
she's a really nice teacher but i find that she gives way too much work
VERY AWESOME TEACHER!!! She's one of the most caring English teachers at tech!! Who else would spend their own money to buy 120 students books to keep just because they wanted them to read certain plays (that we'll probably remember for a long, LONG time to come)!? THANK YOU MRS. P!!! YOU ROCK!!! HAVE A WONDERFUL SUMMER!!!! (PBS should do a biography on you ^-^)
she talks...a LOTTT..and likes to give us essays.. but her class was fun. i felt that she was a hard grader though.
u dont really have to do nay work. just participate and you'll get a maad good grade
I miss her. the best english teacher I had at Tech. She rocks compare to lehrman
she was an okay teacher, picked interesting books, i had her first and she never marked me late
Ms. P totally rocks! And she laughs at her own jokes. Shes awsome!
I LOVE MS. P!! She made The Scarlet Letter INTERESTING, seriously! Who else can do that? Great grader, great person... good with homework and projects, too. :)
shes like the best, she gives me 80s and i dont do any work in her class. i wasnt there half the time either
makes the book fun & her tests r based on class notes. no hw, hard long projects & hard tests but shes an easy grader; fail tests & still get good grades
very very nice teacher... should be alittle more strict on the kids tho.... she gave me an 80 when i barely passed my tests and barely did my hw......SUPER NICE
Weird...the only thing i remember is how she used to say "we" instead of "I". Example: "We're going to handout some sheets...", "Take out the hw we gave you..."
Nice teacher. Allowed me to go to Honors even though I don't talk much in her class. The acting projects were horrible though.
She is disorganized, and she switches from one subject to another in five seconds flat. She always talks about things that doesn't pertain to the lesson.
What if pepople dodnt have mouths?? She'd still find a way to talk... Good teacher tho
She's pretty cool. Consider yourself lucky if you have her. Sure, she likes to dwell on certain subjects, but which teacher doesn't?
Ok, but talks way too much. She puts me to sleep everyday. Gives a lot of work and can be unreasonable at times.
What's with all the bad stuff? She's the coolest Eng teacher in tech right now. Loved her class. Very nice, caring, and organized. Plus gives you a lot of opportunities to boost up your grade. Great teacher.
did all her hws and projects but still got a bad grade
lol dude, there're ppl snoring in her class/her final=hell, makes you wanna cry
she made me like eng a little disorganised but she's kool
da beST engilsh teacHer!miTe be corNY buT madd kewL and easy!!

She's a good teacher unless you're extremely disrespectful...then she gets mad.
very nice fair and good teach. hws were ok. final- 103+ questions =x
